Shooting Star Day 1A About to Begin
You may not be used to seeing players take to the tables at 10AM, but that is far from the only unusual thing about the Shooting Star Event here at the Bay 101 Casino in San Jose, California.
The Shooting Star event has been a circuit favorite for players and fans alike thanks to a number of unique quirks, including 45 Shooting Star players with $5,000 bounties on their heads, a $10,000 bonus for the players who end Day 1A and Day 1B with the chip lead, and six-handed play from the final 36 players onward.
Today, 25 of the Shooting Stars will join the rest of the Day 1A field for ten one-hour levels of play. Some of the bounties in today's field include Daniel Negreanu, Jason Mercier, Dan Harrington, last year's sixth place finisher, Phil Hellmuth, John Juanda, Dwyte Pilgrim, Kara Scott, Erik Seidel, Joe Sebok, and Dan Cates aka jungleman12, who will be making his WPT debut.
