PNW Poker Players: 2019 WSOP Main Event Day 1C

Day 1C was pretty dramatic, with one player attempting to swipe a stack from the player next to him (arrested), the “unmasked bandit” who shoved blind, exposed his cards, and stood up to pull his pants down and throw a show at the dealer (disqualified after winning the hand and escorted off the property, only to repeat the stunt dancing on an Aria gaming table), and, of course the earthquake that forced an early dinner break.

There were 4,879 entries for Day 1C. 3,664 continue. There have been a total of 8,132 entries so far in this year’s Main Event, entry still open through noon tomorrow for Day 2C.

Today’s 2AB will combine the players from Day 1A and Day 1B. Play on Day 2 starts with an 800 big blind/big blind ante (Level 6); The day will end with the big blind at 2,000 (Level 10). Approximate cost per level in blinds:

  • Level 6 (400/800/800 bba): 13,300 chips
  • Level 7 (500/1,000/1,000 bba): 16,700
  • Level 8 (600/1,200/1,200 bba): 20,000
  • Level 9 (800/1,600/1,600 bba): 26,700
  • Level 10 (1,000/2,000/2,000 bba): 33,300
  • TOTAL FOR DAY 2: 110,000

Day 1C survivors include 27 Oregon players, 56 Washington players, and 5 from Idaho, with Portland’s Steve Harper and his Tiny Nut (all hail Battlebots) on top of the PNW crew.
