The first-ever BB Ante HPT Main Event takes place this week at Ameristar East Chicago.
2pm today starts the first-ever Big Blind Ante main event in HPT history - the first of four starting flights at Ameristar East Chicago.
Players begin with 30,000 stacks and play 15 40-minute levels on Day 1, moving to 60-minute levels for Day 2 until heads-up play begins on Tuesday.
Tuesday? Yep, the LiveStream final table is scheduled for a noon start on Tuesday. This is Mother's Day Weekend, so rather than ask players to play Day 2 on a day dedicated to Mom ... HPT has moved Day 2 to Monday and the final table to Tuesday.
This means there's four Day 1 flights - 2pm today and tomorrow, noon on both Saturday AND Sunday.
