Event #61: $600 Deep Stack Championship No-Limit Hold’em is the second edition of the $600 deep stack bracelet events, which first came onto the WSOP schedule in 2019. Play will start today at 11 a.m. at The Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino.
The 2019 WSOP saw Joe Foresman come out on top in a field of 6,410 entrants to beat Will Givens heads up to take home his first WSOP bracelet and a prize of $397,903.
It is unsure as to how many players will participate in this edition of the event, but a big field is expected, given the accessibility to all players and the fact a WSOP bracelet is up for grabs.
Players will have a starting stack of 30,000 and blinds will begin at 100/100 with a 100 big blind ante. Day 1 is scheduled to play out 17 40-minute levels, with a 20-minute break taking place every three levels. A 75-minute dinner break is scheduled after level 9 and late registration for the tournament will be open until players return from dinner (approx. 6:55 p.m.). Players are permitted one re-entry for this tournament.
