Opening Flight in the Money

The bubble has just burst in the opening session of the day, meaning we are down to the final 17 players. We need to lose eight more players before we will reach the final table of nine. Those nine will move on to the finals on Tuesday to battle it out for this massive first place prize.

Twelve More Seats to be Handed Out in the $550 Session
