WSOP Day 36: Fireworks Expected on Day 1c of the Main Event
Today at the World Series of Poker, just a single event is played. But it's not just any event and it's definitely not going to be a quiet day; it's time for Day 1c of the WSOP Main Event, traditionally the biggest of all the starting days. This year will be no exception to that rule.
Today, the Americans celebrate their land of the free and the home of the brave. We hope your Independence Day is monumental!
Today is always a day of celebration, but a lot of poker players will spend the day indoors as Day 1c of the World Series of Poker is scheduled. Day 1c is traditionally the biggest of the three starting days, and this year seems no exception. The queue for registration has seemingly seen no end so far, players kept buying in for the biggest poker tournament of the year throughout the two starting days.
|Starting Day||Entrants in 2017||Entrants in 2018||(Difference)||Survivors in 2018|
Day 1c will be the day Phil Hellmuth makes his entrance. After years of taking it easy with no crazy antics, this year promises to be as exorbitant as in the good old days. Whether you like it or not, Hellmuth always gets the attention when he enters the room. Entering dressed up as Thor or Ironman, as he revealed in his tweets, will sure get some heads turned.
Action gets underway at 11 a.m. and players start with 50,000 in chips. Levels are 120 minutes long throughout the event. After every level, players have a 20-minute break. The dinner break, 60 minutes long, takes place after Level 2 today, which should be around 3:25 p.m.
Late registration for Day 1c of the 2017 WSOP Main Event closes around 6:45 p.m. The day wraps up around 11:00 p.m.
|Level||Duration||Small Blind||Big Blind||Ante|
Players to survive today return to the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino Friday, July 6, 2018, to play another five levels on Day 2c. The full structure for this event can be found here (PDF).
