All of the Details For Tomorrow's Day 2 Buy-In

Tomorrow will be the biggest day of the 2019 Legends of Poker series so far, as the Day 2 finals of the $500,000 Guaranteed Event will be kicking off at 1 PM. Players who haven't already locked up a Day 2 seat can come out anytime before the first break (~2:55 PM) and buy-in directly for $3,400. That cash will give you 180,000 in starting chips, and the blinds will be rolled back tomorrow to 1,500-3,000.

We have crossed the $350,000 marker in the prizepool early on in today's afternoon flight, but of course, that number will be skyrocketing tomorrow, so make sure you join us! If you want to try to earn a discounted Day 2 ticket, we have a $360 buy-in satellite tonight kicking off at 7:30 PM.
