After a few days of preliminary play, it's time for the Main Event of PokerStars Festival New Jersey to get underway.
The Main Event of PokerStars' long-awaited return to the live poker scene on U.S. soil is an $1,100 entry freezeout with one-hour levels and a 25,000 starting stack. Blinds begin at 50/100 and progress from there, with 10 levels of play planned on today's Day 1a schedule, ending at blinds of 600/1,200/200. Twenty-minute breaks will be given every two levels.
Some of the players already seen in the venue the first few days whom we expect to see in the tournament include PokerStars Team Pros Jason Mercier, Chris Moneymaker, and Victor Ramdin, as well as Jonathan Little, David Vamplew, and preliminary event winners Je Wook Oh and Michael Gagliano.
Cards are scheduled to fly at 11 a.m. local time here at Resorts Casino Hotel on the Atlantic City boardwalk. Stay tuned here on PokerNews for all of the live updates.
