Welcome to a new Day 1 flight of Event #6: $365 GIANT No-Limit Hold'em. Day 1d had a total of 1,167 entries and 63 players survived the day and ended up bagging.
This is the fifth and final flight of the GIANT. All players that managed to survive the first day are scheduled to return on Saturday, June 30 for Day 2. The champion will be crowned on Day 3 of the tournament, taking place on July 1.
Play will kick-off at 7 p.m and will conclude after twenty-one 20-minute levels or when the field is down to 10 players, whichever comes first. Players will receive 25,000 in chips and can rebuy as often as they like during the open registration period. There will be 20-minute breaks every six levels and late registration is open for nine levels, closing at approximately 10:20 p.m.
The GIANT plays into the money on Day 1, with the top 15 percent of the field getting paid a guaranteed min-cash by the end of the night. The remaining prize money from each flight gets carried over to Day 2, to create the total prize pool the Day 2 players will battle for.
