What's on Tap: Monday, August 6th

The Mega Millions rolls on tomorrow with two more starting flights at 11:30 AM and 4 PM. These flights will have a buy-in of $160, with all players having an optional $100 add-on that can be used anytime before registration closes, which will be 2:30 PM for the morning flight, and 7 PM for the evening.

This will be the same schedule until Friday, when the $550 sessions come back at 2 PM.

Just Four Tables Left in the Opening Flight Today

Players have just returned from another break in this morning's opening session, and they have just gotten down to the final four tables. That means that just over half of the remaining players will finish in the money tonight, but only the final table of nine will be bagging up their chips tonight.

Still alive and competing for one of those nine bags are Mario Martinez, Derrick Mokedi, and Ilya Shpiner.

First Break of the Final Flight Today

We have exactly 100 players registered on first break of the 4 PM flight today. Registration will remain open today until 7 PM today. Remember that the top 10% will be cashing, but only the top 5% will be moving on to the finals next week.

If you can't make it out for this flight, your next chance to qualify will be tomorrow at 11:30 AM.

By the Numbers: Sunday $550 Session

We had a big turnout in today's $550 session with a total of 131 players. The top 13 will be cashing for $1,000 tonight, and bagging up for the finals next week. Remember that these $550 sessions will be taking a break before coming back on Friday. From that point on, there will be one $550 session each day until the Day 2 finals.

1-13. Advance to Day 2 + $1,000

Cards in the Air: Final Starting Session Today
