Players begin with 25,000 chips and will play 40-minute levels. Registration and re-entries will close at the end of level 14 or at the conclusion of Day 1 whichever comes first. There will be a 15 minutes break at the completion of every two hours and a 60 minutes dinner break at the end of level 9, at around 6.30 p.m. The play will end for the day at the end of Level 14 or when 20% of the field remains, whichever happens first. If you're too late to get in, there's always tomorrow (Day 1b).
Day 2 will resume on Sunday, October 22, 2017 at Noon, combining remaining players from Days 1A and 1B.
