With the Main Event now in full swing at the 2019 PokerStars EPT Prague, it is now time for some of the single-day high rollers to take place. Today will mark the first of two €25,000 Single-Day High Roller with a day off in the middle separating the two.
While some players will be participating in the Main Event on the last starting flight, there is a good chance that all of the usual high-roller players will take at least one shot in this event today. Adrian Mateos, Jean-Noel Thorel, Tsugunari Toma and Stephen Chidwick have been victorious in the high-roller events earlier this week, with Mateos, Thorel, and Toma cashing on multiple occasions.
The cards are scheduled to go in the air at 12:30 p.m. local time, but as with all high-roller events, there is often a slight delay until enough players have been seated. Each player will be given a starting stack of 100,000 chips and the blinds will start at 500/1,000 with a 1,000 big blind ante.
There will be an unlimited re-entry option for the players in this event with late registration staying open until the start of level nine. The levels will be 30-minutes in length, making this somewhat of a turbo format. There will be a 15-minute break after every four levels and a 60-minute dinner break after level 12. As most high-roller tournaments have become accustomed to, this event will run with a 30-second shot clock and each player will start with six 30-second time extensions.
The PokerNews live reporting team will be back to bring you all of the action throughout the day on route to crowning another EPT champion.
