Day 1b of the $1,650 Main Event from Ameristar East Chicago is happening today. Follow along with the action all weekend long with reporting from Brandon Temple at PokerNews.com.
The second of three starting flights is slated to kick off at 2 p.m. local time for the HPT Ameristar East Chicago $1,650 Main Event, and a larger field is expected to take to the felt in hopes of joining the sixteen survivors from yesterday's Day 1a flight.
Robert Keeling sits as the current chip leader, bagging up 422,000 in chips. Henry Zou (322,000), Alex Ziskin (148,000) and Kevin Maahs (83,000) were other notables able to find a bag for Day 2. Meanwhile, we expect to see Craig Casino, Greg Raymer, and Edward Ochana take another crack at navigating their way to Day 2 after falling short yesterday.
Today's Day 1b flight will play fifteen 40-minute levels, with a fifteen-minute break after every three levels, and a dinner break after Level 9. Registration remains open through the completion of the dinner break (approximately 9:45 p.m.) and a single re-entry option is available for players unfortunate enough to bust. One final flight is on tap for players, as Day 1c will kick off on Saturday at Noon local time.
Cards will be in the air at 2 p.m. local time, so be sure to stay tuned to PokerNews as we continue our coverage here at HPT Ameristar East Chicago.
