$1,700 Deepest Stack NLH (Re-Entry) $200,000 Guaranteed | Structure Level 4: 200/300 with a 300 ante Day 1A Entries: 58
It’s a pretty laid-back afternoon in the Poker Room, 58 entries making their way through the day with a couple of busy days coming up. The Memorial Day weekend officially kicks off tomorrow and we expected a packed house.
We found a few familiar faces in the early action including Thomas Gari and 2011 WSOP Ladies Champion Marsha Wolak making her first appearance of the series.

Tournament staff sent Event 5 players on their first break of the day after Level 3 with exactly 50 entries in the game so far. That puts $75,000 in the prize pool towards the $200,000 guarantee with this flight and two more to go.
The warmups are complete and today we roll out the biggest tournament on the May Deep Stack Poker Series schedule. Event 5 has a $1,700 buy-in with a $200,000 guaranteed prize pool and three starting days.
It is the biggest tournament on the series and we expect a talented crew in the Poker Room.
Players start with 50,000 deep stacks and all levels last 40 minutes on Day 1, increasing to 60 minutes on Day 2, and going to 90 minutes from Level 23 forward. Late registration is available until the start of Day 2 on Sunday with unlimited re-entries during that time.
Cards fly at 10 am and we will pick up the action after the first break and catch the highlights until the Event 3 final table is complete.
