By the Numbers: Thursday Afternoon Flight

The second Mega Millions flight today saw a crowd of 138 players come out to play tonight. The top 12% finishes in the money, which means the final 17 are making at least $500 tonight. The final eight will be moving on to the Day 2 finals next week, where the winner should be walking home with over $200,000!

1-8th. Advance to Day 2 + $800
9-17th. $500

Three Former Champions in the Money in the Morning Flight

We are down to the final two tables in the morning Mega Millions flight, which means all 18 players are now $500 richer. As the title indicates, we have a stacked field still left, including former Legends of Poker and Mega Millions champ Mike Shariati, defending champion Tuan Mai, and Phuoc Nguyen, who is in the money for the second day in a row after advancing yesterday with 280,000 in chips.

Be sure to come back in the morning for a fresh list of survivors to see if these three former champions are able to advance to try to become the first two time champion of this event.


What's Coming Up: Friday, August 23rd

Tomorrow, the $550 Mega Millions sessions are returning at 2 PM. For those flights, you get 25,000 in chips, and the top 12% will be earning $800, and moving on to the Day 2 finals.

As usual, this $550 session will be book ended by the $160 sessions at 11:30 AM and 4 PM. Those sessions will each have $100 add-ons for players to get 8,000 more in chips, and in these smaller buy-in flights, the top 12% will be cashing, but only the final 6% will be moving on to the finals next Tuesday.
