With 438 entries already through the first two opening flights of the RunGood Poker Series Cleveland $800 Main Event, the tournament has already been a huge success, surpassing its $250,000 guarantee before cards are even in the air for Day 1c.

Saturday’s final flight is expected to be the biggest yet with the number of entrants today alone potentially approaching that number.

Those players will gather in the beautiful Jack Cleveland Casino poker room at 12:15 p.m. local time with hopes of finding a bag to take into Sunday’s Day 2, which takes place at 11:15 a.m.

They’ll be chasing the number put up by Day 1b chip leader Scott Katip, who will bring 568,000 chips into play Sunday, surpassing Day 1a chip leader Anthony Carbone’s total of an even 500,000. So far they are the only players to pass the half-million mark, but that number will certainly be challenged today.

As has been the case for the first two opening flights, play is scheduled for 15 40-minute levels with a 15-minute break after every third level and as was the case Friday, a 60-minute dinner break after Level 9.

Players will start with 30,000 chips at blind levels of 100/200 with a 200 big blind ante. Registration will remain open until the end of that dinner break and players who bust may reenter as many times as they please.

While 15 levels are planned, play in the first two flights wrapped up at the alternate point of when just 15 percent of the field remains. This came in Level 13 in Days 1a and 1b.
