Matt Savage just put cards are in the air for the inaugural Great Wall of Chips. Let’s see if someone can build their 25,700 starting stack to the 25’7” height of the tallest portion of the Great Wall itself. That’s Justin Hammer (pictured) at the Great Wall itself. He should be back any time now.
This is the first of 3+1 starting flights in this $350 with a $250,000 Guarantee - 1pm and 5pm openers today and tomorrow - with registration and a single re-entry per player, per flight, available until the start of Level 8. Five the 1pm flights that is 3:30+60 minutes, while the 5pm flight reg closes at 8:30pm.
Play in each of the Day 1 30-minute-level flights continues until down to the final 8 percent of the starting field, with 1-in-8 in each flight finishing in the money. Yep, you can make the money in a flight and not make Day 2. This is also a Best Stack Fiveward event so everyone - bustouts, in-the-money and Day 2 qualifiers - are all eligible to play every flight.
The Day 2 Final restart is scheduled for Sunday at 2pm, 9-handed until down to 88 players when play becomes 8-handed. 39-minute levels to begin Day 2, 88-minute levels for the Final Table.
