They haven’t wasted time getting started today and we have nearly 200 runners already in the field, with satellites and multiple Day 1s on, the million Euro guarantee seems in jeopardy.
Big names are getting started early, with the likes of Donnacha O’Dea, Andy Black, John Hesp, Dara O’Kearney, Daragh Davey, and Leo Lombardozzi already sat and chip riffling. As ever, Mr Andy Black’s distinct voice periodically fills the entire convention space. And yes, John Hesp is looking rather dapper.
We’re playing ten 1 hour levels today. Starting stacks are 30,000 (starting at big blind 100) and the ante is not being introduced until level 4. This is a championship structure if there ever was one.
