Welcome to Day 1a of the €5,300 EPT Paris Main Event

It is a brand new day at the PokerStars European Poker Tour Paris, and Day 1a of the €5,300 EPT Paris Main Event is set to begin at 12 p.m. local time, inside the Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile.

Two marquee PokerStars events have already played out this year, with the PCA and PSPC wrapping up just a few weeks ago. Michel Dattani and Aliaksandr Shylko were the victors of those events, and have already tested their skills on the felt in the French Capital. They're just two of the notable names that are expected to make up a star-studded lineup.

Dattani collected $1,316,963 for his PCA Main Event triumph, while Shylko pocketed $3,121,838 for his PSPC victory. Another seven-figure first-place prize is expected this time around as well.

The EPT Paris Main Event comes with a €5,300 buy-in and has two starting flights. Due to French regulations, players are only permitted a maximum of two entries across Day 1a and Day 1b.

The plan for the Day 1s is to play ten 60-minute levels, with late registration closing at the start of Level 11 on Day 2. There will be a 20-minute comfort break every two levels and the 75-minute dinner break is scheduled to take place after Level 6 (approx. 6:40 p.m. local time). All entrants will be given a 30,000 starting stack, which is good for 300 big blinds.

Players should note that there is already a waiting list for Day 1a of the Main Event; however, plenty of seats are available for Day 1b.
