All is quiet here in the Event Center as the final adjustments are made in preparation for the Kickoff of the 2018 Winter Poker Open! Registration is open out in the Event Center lobby at the top of the escalators and the doors to the tournament room will open in about 45 minutes.
There are six starting flights in this Kickoff Event, spread out over three days. Today’s first flight will get underway shortly after 11am once the starting announcements are completed.
The next five flights launch as follows:
1B: Today, 5pm
1C: Wednesday, 11am
1D: Wednesday, 5pm
1E: Thursday, 10am
1F: Thursday, 5pm
All players begin with 25,000 chip Deep Stacks and the first 17 levels are 30 minutes long. The plan is to complete all 17 of those levels on Day 1 before the bag & tag. The survivors of all six starting flights will return on Friday at 12 noon for Day 2, followed by the final day on Saturday, also beginning at 12 noon.
