If you missed out on tonight's Survivor Event, remember there is a $565 Survivor Event tomorrow at 1 PM, where the top 10% will be taking home $5,000.

What's on Tap: Monday, December 11th

Tomorrow will be an exciting day here at the Bike, as it is the penultimate day of the series. We kicked things off at noon with the restart of the Main Event. Anyone who has not qualified for the Day 2 finals by that point can register and receive a stack of 20,000 before play restarts at 12.

At 1 PM, we will have another survivor event. The buy-in will be $565, and the top 10% of players will all be receiving $5,000 for their efforts.

Lastly, at 2 PM, we have the eagerly anticipated High Roller Event. The buy-in there will be $3,250. Players will start with 30,000 in chips, and the finals for this event will start on Tuesday at 1 PM. Last December, Jesse Yaginuma took down this title, defeating a field of 129 players to take home over $108,000.

It will be a fantastic day, so make sure you are here for all the fun!

Registration Closed in Flight 1B

The action has picked back up here after the dinner break, which means registration has officially closed with 379 players registered according to the tournament clock. Add that to the 294 players from yesterday, and the total field so far is at 673 players.

Remember that you can still register for this event tomorrow before the 12 PM start. Good luck to everyone!

Dinner Time Here at the Bike

The players are lining up on the other side of the tournament room for the buffet as it's dinner time in the WSOP Circuit Main Event. Cards will be back in the air around 7:25 PM local time, and that will also mark the end of registration for this flight.

Over 350 Players Registered So Far

We figured today would be bigger than yesterday, and you guys have come through so far, as we have 357 players and counting in this flight with about 90 minutes left in registration. Don't forget that even if you get knocked out today, you will have a chance to buy-in tomorrow before the day starts up at 12 PM. You will get the original starting stack, with blinds starting up at 1,500-3,000.

Some Early Big Stacks on Break #2

We are four hours into play today, and below you will see a few of the players who have managed to surge ahead of the pack early on, thanks to the guys over at wsop.com. When they come back from break, they will play two more levels before taking a one hour dinner break.

Harry Arutyunyan - 103,000
Britton Purvis - 82,000
Mike Leah - 62,000
Sal Dicarlo - 48,000
Osmin Dardon - 48,000

Cards in the Air: $390 Survivor Event

It's time for our first post-lim event here at the WSOP Circuit Series, and this one is a Survivor Event. The buy-in today is $390, and the top 10% will be given $3,250. If players are so inclined, that is the same buy-in as the High Roller ring event that kicks off tomorrow, so they could roll those winning right over into that event.

Registration will be open in this event until 7 PM tonight. Good luck players!
