Day 1a About to Start!
Hello everyone, and welcome to Day 2 of the 2013 World Series of Poker. Yesterday, the $500 Casino Employee’s Event, and the $5,000 Eight Max kicked off, but today, we have our first buy-in for the low stake grinders, the $1,000 buy-in reentry event!
The WSOP introduce the now popular re-entry format last year in a $1,500 buy-in event. That tournament was won by Canadian Ashkan Razavi for a cool $781,398. Despite the fact that there were a staggering 3,404 total entrants, it was still a stacked final table, including well known pros Greg “FBT” Mueller, Brian Rast, and Amanda Musumeci, who finished runner up in the event.
Play is scheduled to get underway at 11 AM local time. Players will start out with 3,000 in chips, the blinds will be 25-25, and we will be playing eight levels without a dinner break today. If a player busts in the first flight, they can come back and reenter at 5 PM for the Day 1b flight.
