It’s time for Day 1 of the €10,300 EPT High Roller.
Earlier editions of No Limit Hold’em High Roller events throughout last week and a half have been claimed by the likes of Jean-Noel Thorel, Adrian Mateos, and Sam Greenwood, and the three of them are just a few of the players expected to turn up at the final High Roller event of the 2019 PokerStars EPT Prague festival.
Cards are set to get in the air at 12:30 p.m. local time with players receiving 50,000 in chips to start the day. Blinds will begin at 100/200 with an ante of 100 and hour-long levels. The second level of the day will also be 100/200 and will see a big-blind ante come into play at that point and remain a fixture for the duration of the tournament.
Day 1 will see 10 levels played to their completion with 20-minute breaks at the end of every two levels and a 75-minute dinner break at the end of Level 6. There will be a 30-second shot clock in play from the beginning of the event with six extensions granted to each player, and one reentry is available for anybody who is eliminated from the tournament. Registration will remain open all day long and will close at the start of Day 2.
The PokerNews team will be on the floor bringing you all the action as it unfolds, so make sure to stick around.
