What To Expect On Day 1A Of The WSOP Main Event At GGPoker
The $10K WSOP Main Event kicks off at 6:00 p.m. GMT. The event costs $10K buy-in to enter, unless you bag yourself an affordable seat from one of the many satellites running around the clock.
Each player will receive 60,000-chips (300 BBs). The blinds start at 100/200, with antes starting during the second level. Each level will last for 30 minutes, making this a great blind structure. Late registration will be open until the end of the 11th level, but don’t enter it too late because it is a freezeout event, meaning if you play 1A and bust, your Main Event dreams are over for another year.
