The GG Spring Festival enters the second week and one of the flagship tournaments has already kicked off. Day 1a of the GGSF Super MILLION$ ME-H: $10,300 took place two days ago and the second starting day will get underway shortly at 6.05 p.m. GMT.
The first of five starting days attracted a total of 329 entries, of which 41 players advanced. Day 1b is expected to draw a smaller audience but some of the biggest names in the world of poker are nonetheless expected to take a shot at running up a stack for Day 2.
Around half an hour prior to start, there are already 36 players registered including Wiktor Malinowski, Joseph Cheong, David Yan, Andras Nemeth, Daniyar Aubakirov, Pedro Garagnani, Pascal Hartmann, and Peter Turmezey to name all but a few. With the $25,500 Single-Day High Roller taking place concurrently, many others will follow to enter the fray.
All players start with 100,000 in chips, which represents 200 big blinds in the first level at 250-500 and a running ante of 60. All levels last 20 minutes each and a total of 22 levels are scheduled for each starting day. The late registration is open until 0.05 am GMT and that should be level 17 at blinds of 3,500-7,000 and a running ante of 850.
During the registration period, unlimited re-entries are allowed for all those who wish to take another shot at the $10 million guaranteed prize pool. Stay tuned to follow all the action right here on PokerNews.
