Blinds are up for Day 1A of the Championship and we have 400 runners/entries to put us nearly halfway to the $3,000,000 guarantee before the first break. Not too shabby.

More friends in the field include local legend Andy Slater, $10K Heads-Up champ Chance Kornuth, Neil Blumenfield, Ryan Hoenig, Darren Rabinowitz, Joe McKeehen, Francis Margaglione, and former WPT Poker Showdown champ Eric Afriat.

Hoenig is coming into the Championship on a heater; he has seven cashes so far with two runners-up and won three titles in three straight nights.
