Final Flight in Black Hawk
The fourth and final flight of the $1,100 Main Event at Golden Gates Casino is underway. Today's flight is anticipated to be a big one with 300+ entries a possibility.
The first three flights generated a combined 414 entries with 69 players advancing to Day 2 so far. Though the average stack of those who have found a bag is around 180k, there are a few big stacks that are skewing that average. Denver's David Berger amassed 628,000 chips in Flight B and Jason Sater put 590,000 in the bag yesterday in Flight C.
Today's field will play 15 full 40-minute levels before bagging and tagging for the night. All players who advance from their respective flights return to the felt at 11am tomorrow for Day 2 action. Those remaining players should hit the money portion of the tournament within an hour or two tomorrow and Day 2 will play down to the final nine Sunday before stopping for the evening.
The final nine will take a seat on HPT's nationally televised set Monday at noon to play down to a winner. Monday's final table will be streamed at twitch.tv/hptpoker on a short delay.
