Opening Session in the Money

Hand-for-hand play in the opening flight of the day lasted exactly one hand, as one of the two players who were all in was eliminated. That means that the 20 remaining players have all locked up at least $250. However, only the final 14 will be walking out with $400 tonight, along with a coveted Day 2 ticket to the finals on Tuesday.

By the Numbers: Final Session of the Day

The third and final starting session here today was one of the biggest we've seen so far, as we had a total of 235 entries. That means that the final 24 players will be earning at least a min-cash, with the final 16 booking a ticket to the Day 2 finals Tuesday.

1-16th. Advance to Day 2 + $400
17-24th. $250

What's on Tap: Sunday, June 25th

The $500,000 Guaranteed action keeps rolling tomorrow with three more starting sessions, and time is running out for you to qualify! The schedule tomorrow will be the same as today, with three starting sessions: $85 flights at 11:30 AM and 4 PM, and a $240 session at 2 PM.

All this is in preparation for the finals on Tuesday at 4 PM, where anyone who hasn't qualified yet will be able to buy-in directly for $1,900.

By the Numbers: Afternoon $240 Session

Today's $240 starting flight drew a total of 168 players, meaning that 17 more Day 2 seats will be handed out there. If you want to play one of these higher buy-in sessions where the top 10% will advance, you have two more chances: tomorrow and Monday at 2 PM.

First Break of the Final Session

The third and final starting session of the day has just taken their first break, and so far, 123 players have entered. When they return, they will play three more 25-minute levels before taking another break. Registration will close at the end of that break, around 7 PM tonight, so make sure you come out and join us for it!

Cards in the Air: Final Session of the Day

The third and final starting flight of the day has just kicked off here in the tournament room. Registration for this $85 session will be open until 7 PM, and re-entry is also allowed in that time frame. The top 10% will be cashing, but only the final 7% will be moving on to the finals.

Some Snapshots From the 2 PM Session

Now it's time for some player photos in the 2 PM $240 session. Just like Deepinder Singh in the opening flight, Ly Tran is back here after bagging a huge chip stack to try and take advantage of the $1,200 bonus for double qualifying. We also spotted Hermilo Vargas, who final tabled the $100,000 Guaranteed Event here a couple of weeks ago.

By the Numbers: Opening Flight of the Day

The first of three flights in this Saturday of $500,000 Guaranteed qualifying drew a total of 202 players. That means that the top 20 players will finish in the money, with the final 14 moving on to Tuesday's finals. We have another $85 session starting up at the top of the hour in case you missed out on this one, so come join us.

Over 100 Players in the Afternoon $240 Session

The afternoon $240 session is taking it's first break of the day, and so far, we have seen 107 entries. Registration will be open until 5 PM today, and we will have $240 sessions both today and tomorrow as we get closer to the massive Day 2 finals on Tuesday!

A Few Players in the Opening Flight

We took a quick walk through the first flight of the day, and spotted a few notables. This included Deepinder Singh, who currently has the chip lead in this event with over 700,000. He is back trying to earn a second seat so that he can collect a $1,200 bonus for double qualifying. We also spotted a former Mega Millions winner, Boris Goldstein!

Time For Another $240 Flight

We are back to the $240 buy-in level this afternoon, and that means that the top 10% from this session will be cashing, and moving on to the finals on Tuesday. Registration will be open until 5 PM tonight, and we will be here to provide updates from this flight, including photos, and numbers updates.

Good luck everyone!

Cards in the Air: First Session of the Day

It's Saturday, and that means more poker action here at the Bicycle Casino! So far, nearly 200 players have managed to qualify for this massive Day 2 final, and that list will only be getting bigger today! Registration for this opening flight will close at 2:30 PM, but if that is too early for you, don't worry. We have starting sessions still to come today, a $240 buy-in flight at 2 PM, and one more $85 session at 4 PM.

Good luck all!
