Structure
Level 1: 100/200 Limits

While the opening event of the series is cruising along in the middle of the Event Center, we are ready to begin our first non-hold’em tournament on the schedule on the side. Event 2 is a $360 Limit Omaha 8 game, split pots all day long with the first trophy awaiting the winner.

Players start with 12,000 stacks and all levels will last 30 minutes today. Late registration is available until the start of Level 9 at 4:30pm with re-entries available during that time should a player lose their stack. There is a dinner break scheduled at 6pm and the remaining players will return to play it down to the winner later this evening.

Cards go in the air at noon and we will hit the highpoints along the way.

The entry count quickly jumped over 100 after the start of the day and the luck of the draw put to of the toughest players next to each other.

Brian Hastings and Michael Tureniec are sitting next to each other and they have nearly $8,000,000 in combined earnings (that’s just live poker, both have huge results online) along with five WSOP bracelets.

Tureniec also has two SHRP trophies including the WPTDeepStacks Immokalee title we hosted. Hastings has four of the five combined bracelets and is a danger in any tournament he enters. But Hastings is running on short rest today after recently returning from his honeymoon.
