After two opening day flights, the World Series of Poker Bicycle Casino $1,700 Main Event begins the home stretch today.
The 37 players who survived Day 1a will join the 63 players who made it through Day 1b, and the combined field of 100 players will return to the Bicycle Casino in Bell Gardens, California, as the tournament continues toward the money.
Day 2 will begin at noon today, with play resuming at Level 16 with the blinds at 2000/4000/4000. The field is scheduled to play through 10 one-hour levels today, with 10-minute breaks at the end of every two levels, and a 60-minute dinner break after Level 21.
Play will wrap for the night at the end of Level 25, and the players who are still in the tournament at that point will return Wednesday for Day 3, and play down to a winner.
Day 1a end-of-day chip leader Robert Sumpter (445,000) comes back as the overall chip leader, followed by Day 1b chip leader Thomas Emerson (395,000), Andrew Ostapchenko (365,000), Fadi Hamad (361,000) and Peter Chu (347,000).
Other names still in the hunt include Dylan Wilkerson (334,000), Marco Johnson (274,000), Sandeep Pulusani (203,000) and Bill Klein (115,000).
The tournament will continue toward the money bubble and the ultimate prize, which is the WSOP Circuit ring and the right to be called the WSOP Circuit Bicycle Main Event champion.
The final table of the Main Event will be streamed on Live at the Bike, and the eventual winner will also recieve an entry into the WSOP National Championship.
