Welcome To Day 1b – 03/02/2017 – 12:30

Good afternoon and welcome back to the Poker Room for the second and final day one of the first leg.

Season 11 kicked off with a bang yesterday with a massive 161 entries!! Beating the 152 from Day 1a last year.

Today we expect a really busy day, 220 stacks have been made up, so that’s the number we are aiming for. This time last year we experienced our biggest ever Day one, with 242 entries for the main event, could we get close to that number today? We’ll have to wait and see as late registration is open for the first six levels of play.

 

58 players made it through from yesterday with Chi Thang leading the way, he has a stack of 175,500 which he will take through to Day Two. He’s the man to catch.

We will be here with you today bringing you pictures, live blog updates, exits, chip counts and our HD live stream with all hole cards shown on a 30 minute delay.

Play will begin today at 1pm.
