WSOPC Event #1 Results

By the Numbers: Final Monster Stack Flight

The fourth and final Monster Stack flight drew a total of 298 players. That means that the final 45 players will be moving on to the finals tomorrow to join the remaining survivors. It also means that the prizepool is already over $360,000, and with the Day 2 buy-ins still to come tomorrow, that number should easily pass $400,000 when the dust settles.

1-45th. Advance to Day 2

What's on Tap: Day 2 Finals of the Monster Stack

It's the busiest day of the series tomorrow, as we have three new events running, along with the Day 2 finals of the Monster Stack. The action kicks off at 11:30 AM with the latest ring event, the $365 buy-in tournament.

Just 30 minutes later, it's Day 2 of the Monster Stack Event, where players will be able to buy-in directly for $2,200 anytime before 1:30 PM.

At 5 PM, it's time to switch to the Survivor format in our $565 buy-in Survivor Event. For that one, the top 10% of the field will all be paid out $5,000, regardless of their chip position at the time.

Lastly, we wrap up the evening with our nightly $230 buy-in Mega Satellite, where at least three discounted seats to our $1,675 Main Event will be given out.

We will be here all day long to bring you all the updates you need, so be sure to come back tomorrow!

By the Numbers: 11:30 AM Flight

The third of four flights in this $300,000 Guaranteed Monster Stack Event drew 322 players, meaning that 48 more will be moving on to tomorrow's finals. We are rapidly approaching the guarantee, and will easily surpass it in the fourth and final flight. Be sure you don't miss out on it!
