Are You Ready? It's Main Event Time!

It's he-re! The $600 buy-in $100K GTD Main Event is about to begin. Today is Day 1A. Players begin with 25,000 chips, blinds at 50/100, and 40-minute levels throughout the tournament. There will be a one-hour dinner break at the end of Level 9.

There will be a 15-minute break after every three levels. Registration will close at the end of the day and re-entry is available. 

The plan for today is to either play through the end of Level 14 or until 20 percent of the field remains, whichever comes first. However long we play today will determine how long we play on Day 1B on Saturday.

The board shows 60 entries so far, but there is a lengthy line at the registration desk. Throughout the week, 43 people won seats into the event via satellites, so we expect a good turnout by the time Day 1 registration closes Saturday night.
