Following the conclusion of Level 19, play was momentarily suspended for tournament staff to address the players. According to the staff, they had crunched the numbers and because of the size of this tournament, it will likely play well into the early hours of the morning on Day 3. According to the math done by the tournament staff, the event should finish around 6 a.m. The tournament staff then informed the players that they would need to end around 2 a.m.
In order to combat this, the staff announced that they needed to take action.
Tournament staff gave the players the options of either extending Day 2 play by one level or two, or decreasing the length of the levels on Day 3. Each player had their own opinion on the matter, so this obviously turned into a somewhat lengthy process.
In the end, it was decided that one extra level would be played tonight and the levels on Day 3 would decrease from the standard 60 minutes to 55 minutes.
