Level 5 Begins (564 Entrants)

Aug 25, 2014

The players return from break to begin Level 5, with increased blinds of 150-300 and a 50 ante.

Registration for Day 1C is now closed, and the tournament clock shows an unofficial Day 1C field of 230 players. That creates a three-day field of 564 entrants. But that’s not the final number, because players have the option of entering (or re-entering) at the start of Day 2 tomorrow by paying $10,000 to receive 72,000 in chips (60 big blinds).

Today’s field will play 10 one-hour levels, with a 45-minute dinner break after Level 6 (about 7:20 pm). Action should end around 12:15 am.
