The late registration is available for the first four hours and 45 minutes, and all High Rollers can fire just one entry in this event. All those that enter the mix right from the start will have 200 big blinds at their disposal at 250/500 with a running ante of 60 as the tournament features a starting stack of 100,000.
The event will play down to a champion throughout the next two days and the blind levels on Day 1 will last 20 minutes each. Once the money bubble has burst, the action will conclude for the night and all survivors return the following day at the same starting time to play down to a winner.
