Having a Breakdown

Level 16: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

All of the tables in the main tournament room have been broken, and the Day 2 bags are coming out on the tables.

The remaining Day 1F field is now in the poker room and approaching the money bubble. The final 82 earn a payday, and we’ll have to get down to 34 before we can restart Day 2.

The clock shows 88 remain.

150 Remain

Level 16: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

That’s the number on the clock, and it’s ticking down quickly.

No word yet on the official field size, or how many we’ll play to for this 1F flight.

Remembering Chad Brown

Level 14: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

The poker world is in mourning this week with the news of Chad Brown’s passing.

Chad’s friends and family have organized a tournament in his honor this Sunday at Binion’s. There are several prizes added by PokerStars, and the WPT is going to donate three WPT500 seats, as well.

Really, though, it’s not about the prizes.

Please join us at Binion’s this Sunday for a memorial ceremony (4:00 p.m.) and the first-annual $225 + rebuys charity poker tournament in memory of Chad.

Turbo Tidbits

Level 4: 100-200, 25 ante

Each level is 15 minutes this morning, and the abbreviated schedule sees some levels shrugged off in favor of brevity.

Registration for this event will close promptly at 10:30 a.m.

The plan is to reach the 5% mark before Day 2 begins at 1:00 p.m., and it looks like it’s going to be close.

Alternate calls are certianly coming quicker, as well. Number forty was just called to line up.

Shuffle Up and Deal!

Level 2: 50-100, ante

The cards are in the air, and this Turbo Day 1F is under way!

Note that the blinds are correct, but the level numbers are not necessarily, as this Turbo structure is an abbreviated one.

Blinds are 50/100 for the first level.

“Turbo Time!”

Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

Those are the words of partypoker qualifier Max Droege as he enters the tournament area with sleep in his eyes and a cup of strong coffee in his hand.

Today is the Turbo Day 1F, the last chance to advance to the knockout stages of the partypoker Presents: WPT500 at ARIA Resort & Casino.

We have more than 600 players registered for this flight, and the plan is to reduce that number to 5% of itself before 1:00 p.m.

It’s a turbo flight, so the live updates are going to follow suit. Cards fly in a moment!
