Day 1 will feature 10 60-minute levels of play and players will have a 20-minute break every two levels. Late registration will be available until the end of Level 8, roughly 9:15 p.m., and players can re-enter as many times as they would like up until the end of late registration. There will be a 75-minute break after the sixth level (≈ 5:40 p.m.).
Numbers have been on the rise this year on the Main Event and this event, in part for a great cause, looks to keep that trend going. The Day 1A attracted 687 entries last year and the number of entries will continue to grow on the two others starting days and as the Main Event loses players.
