Today the Grand Prix Canada will feature 3 of the final 4 Day 1 flights in the event, Day 1I, Day 1J, and Turbo Day 1K. Considering that it’s a Saturday, these should be the largest starting flights of all by number of entries, and consequently should add a considerable number of new Day 2 qualifiers to the 262 entries that have qualified so far.
Day 1I is the first up, beginning at 12:00pm this afternoon, and as has been the case for the past two days, it will be followed by another “normal” Day 1 at 5:00pm and then a Turbo Day 1 at 10:00pm.
Each Day 1 will start with 100,000 in tournament chips and play through 18 levels, and everyone who still has a stack at the end of their Day 1 will qualify for Day 2. With so many Day 1s already completed, it’s easy to put together targets that players may seek to aim for. The overall chip leader so far, Samuel Roussy-Majeau, will start Day 2 with an amazing 3,150,000 in chips. A more modest target would be 1M in chips – there are 58 players already qualified that will start with that amount or more on Day 2.
Good luck on the Felts today!
