The second premiere event in Seminole Hard Rock May Deep Stack Poker Series is upon us. The first of two starting flights in the $560 buy-in The Deeper Stack will get underway at 11 a.m. EDT on Monday. The only other flight, Day 1b, will kick off at the same time on Tuesday.
Players will start with 40,000 in chips in that tournament and play 40-minute levels through Level 14. Levels 15-26 will last 60 minutes each with Levels 27+ will switch to 90 minutes. Heads-up play will revert to 40-minute levels.
The plan for both Day 1 flights is to play through Level 14. Late registration and unlimited re-entries will be allowed until the start of Day 2. Like the Deep Stack, this is not a best-stack forward event.
The winner of the tournament will also receive an added $1,650 Main Event seat.
Last year, Chanpiseth Keam prevailed over a 432-entry field to win the Deeper Stack for $37,991. The year before that, Jeffrey Trudeau Jr. topped a 434-entry field to win it for $49,148, while Almog Biton topped a 452-entry field to win it in 2016 for $57,746.
PokerNews will begin its live updates from this event upon completion of the $350 Deep Stack finale, which you can follow here.
