As play got underway the field had swelled to 237 players, with the cap being 300. Each table will play somewhere between eight and ten-handed, with the spare spots being filled in with the late arrivals. There will be no balancing the end of day stacks if the tables are not even at the close of registration. The winner of an eight-handed table will take 72,000 chips forward to day two, the winner of a nine-handed table will take 81,000 through, and the winner of a full ten-handed table will take the full 90,000 chips through.
Day 2 players will all be in the money and they will play out ten three-handed tables. The ten winners will progress to a final ten-handed final table on Thursday.
Make sense? I hope so!
