$1,100 Deep Stack NLH Shootout (Freeze-Out) 90-Player Cap | Structure Level 1: 100/100 Entries: 49
Action kicked off for the first Shootout we’ve run since 2016 and we have nearly 50 players in the freeze-out in early action. Registration will remain open until 4:15 pm after the first break so plenty of time to hit the 90-player cap.
Those in early action include Loni Hui, Jason Young, Natasha Mercier, Jessica Cai, Eric Piderit, Boris Kravets, and 2021 WPT RRPO Championship runner-up Jake Ferro. Young probably has the best Shootout result of anyone in the event at this point; he won the WSOP $1,500 Shootout in 2008 for his first bracelet.
$1,100 Deep Stack NLH Shootout (Freeze-Out) 90-Player Cap | Structure Level 1: 100/100
We are bringing back an old-school game this afternoon at 2 pm; the Shootout returns to the Grand Ballroom, the first we’ve run since the 2016 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open. The tournament has a $1,100 buy-in and 90-player cap so get your seat early.
Players start with 20K deep stacks and all Day 1 levels last 30 minutes. Late registration is available until the start of Level 5 at 4:15 pm or the cap is reached. The Shootout format means we will have ten tables with nine players each and they continue until one player at the table has all the chips, like a sit-n-go.
Those ten winners will return at noon tomorrow to play the final table. All players at the final table will start with 200,000 in their stack, blinds will roll back to Level 9, and levels increase to 40 minutes.
It should be a fun tournament and we look forward to the return of some “Maverick” style poker.
