Good afternoon (or for everyone playing and working at this tournament good morning!) It is Day 1b of the World Poker Tour (WPT) Venice brought to you live from the Casino Di Venezia in Ca' Noghera!
Yesterday we saw a meagre 78 players turn up for action on Day 1a so we will be crossing our fingers and our toes for a much bigger turn out today. As this is a re-entry tournament players who failed to make the grade yesterday get a second chance and we expect to see familiar names such as John Eames, Marvin Rettenmaier, Scott Baumstein and Sam El Sayed taking advantage of the new stipulation.
Yesterday the chip leader Andrea Dato amassed a stack of 217,300 chips throughout his nine levels of play. Today will follow a similar path with nine sixty minute levels with a 15-minute break every second level. The dinner break will be for 60-minutes and will take place after the sixth place has taken place.
Having just experienced the registration process myself, there is no way this tournament will start at 13.00 (CET) but we are sure the organisers will try their best to get as close to that time as possible.
