Event 17: Day 1B Ready to Go

$5,300 Buy-In Championship No Limit Hold’em $10 Million Guaranteed (Re-Entry)
Level 1: 25/50

Flight 1B of the 2014 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open $10 Million Guaranteed Championship is about to get underway. The first flight on Thursday drew 334 entrants with the next two days promising to be much larger. Nearly 200 players were registered before the ballroom doors even opened and the room is staffed for a major run to the tables.

Just 98 players survived from 1A to bag chips for Day 2 with poker pro Jared Jaffee leading the way with 462,800. Other big names moving on include former November Niners Ben Lamb, John Racener, and John Dolan.

Players begin with 30,000 stacks and 40-minutes levels until the dinner break following Level 9. Late registration/re-entry will close at the start of Level 10 when the hour-long levels kick in.

Players are taking their seats and cards will soon be in the air.
