Today’s Day 1 of the $5K 8-Max Re-entry tournament – the second tournament in this format during the WCC – continues with just about 2 levels left to play on the day and entries and re-entries continuing to jump in the action. Most recently, Samuel Chartier and Thomas Lefort have both re-entered, and Mark Radoja came late but has already entered and re-entered once! Jiachen Gong is also in the event, and as the day winds down in the $2,200 Canadian Poker Championships, it seems that several players who are eliminated relatively late in that event will simply cross the floor to the $5K – or register before play tomorrow.
Regardless of when they get in, the field size is edging up to the number required to meet the $200K guarantee. No matter what happens, it’s clear that there’s going to be a very nice prize for someone when the dust settles tomorrow.
