The remaining nine starting flights will then be spread out over the course of June and the beginning of July, with the final flight taking place as a turbo on Sunday, July 5 at 8 a.m. local time before Day 2 starts at 1 p.m. Day 3 will be the final table and take place on Monday, July 6.
With 10 starting flights available, players will be allowed one reentry per day, plus the chance to play any and all starting flights. If a player who plays multiple starting flights advances to Day 2 in more than one instance, he or she will be able to carry the largest stack forward to Day 2.
According to the WPT, every starting flight will end in the money with five percent of the field remaining. Last year’s 3,599-entry field was topped by Sean Yu (pictured). He walked away with a whopping $260,000 in prize money, and 432 players cashed altogether. Looking for best online poker game website?
