The second eight-game tournament of the series kicks off this afternoon. This time, instead of a $235 buy-in, it's been upped to $550. And instead of a standard 8-game rotation, this one will be a dealers choice variety.
Everybody in the event will start with 10,000 in tournament chips and there is late registration and re-entry through the first nine levels of play. For the first nine levels of play, levels will be 20 minutes and it will switch to 30-minute levels after that.
Approximiately 16% of the field will cash and this is a one-day event, so the tournament will continue until a winner is crowned later tonight. There are 10-minute breaks after every two hours of play.
