After nine hours of play we are nearing the end of the Day 1F flight.
There are now 49 players left, each with an average stack of 520,000 chips. And while that is a good number to start Day 2 with, some of our former Day 1 finalists have racked up as much as 3,000,000 in their first day, meaning that perhaps the players here should keep grinding just a little longer.
This is not the strategy they appear to be following over at table 56, one of only 5 tables left from our starting group of 255 players. In the last three hands we witnessed, the table simply shipped the blinds to the first player to make a bet.
That kind of play may minimize the risk, but it won’t open up any big possibilities.
Then again, the chatter at the table seems to indicate they’re all experienced players, so maybe they’re all just biding their time, and looking to move in for a kill only when it’s appropriate.
