We are down to the final 43 players now, which means we have officially hit the money! Two of the biggest stacks in the room are former ring winner here Gladys Landegger, and former Mega Millions Champion Dave Banerjee. Both of them have around 500,000, with the average stack at just 150,000.
Be sure to come back in the morning to find out who makes it through to tomorrow's Day 2 finals. Congratulations to everyone in the money!
The return of another series of tournaments also means the nightly satellites have returned as well! This series, we are running $300 satellites that will be guaranteeing at least three seats to the $1,700 WSOP Circuit Main Event that starts up next Sunday. Registration for these satellites will be open for just over two hours, or around 10:10 PM tonight.
The opening event of the series drew a huge crowd of 284 players, putting the overall prize pool at $93,720. The final 43 players will be making the money tonight, with first place taking home over $21,000. Check out the full payouts below, and thank you to everyone who came out for our opening event!
We are nearing the 100 player mark in today's Bounty Event, as those players are now taking their first break of the day. Registration will remain open until 8:20 PM tonight, so you still have time to come on down and spend your Saturday evening with us here at the Bike!
The ring events roll on tomorrow, with two pieces of hardware up for grabs. We start things off at 10 AM with a $50,000 Guaranteed Ring Event, where the buy-in is $250. Registration will be open until 2:20 PM tomorrow, and it will be a two day event with the finals on Monday.
At 3 PM, the mixed game specialists will be coming out of the woods to fight for the HORSE ring. The buy-in there will be $400, and players will be starting with 15,000 in chips. This is also a two day event.
