The results of last night’s online Day 1 are in, and while play gets started in the Live portion of the event, it’s worth noting that there is a new chip leader in the event. Through the 18 levels of last night’s Day 1, Adam Carlton managed to accumulate 1,466,840 in chips – putting him well in the lead so far.
With just 3 online Day 1s left, already 101 players have qualified for Day 2 in the event. Tomorrow – Sunday August 13th – also marks the beginning of the Live Day 1 flights, which will see a whole host of additional Day 2 qualifiers being added throughout next week.
54 of the online qualifiers are scheduled to play in the online Day 2, which gives them the chance to win a Golden Chip! Golden Chip winners – players who make Day 3 in the event through the online Day 2 – will have the chance to win a Caribbean Poker Party package worth $10K if they make it to the final table. That’s definitely a prize worth playing for – but there are just 3 more chances to play in online Day 1s – tonight at 7:00pm, and tomorrow at 5:00pm and 7:00pm. The online Day 2 runs at 9:00pm Sunday.
The full Day 1 results will be kept up-to-date – so you can keep tabs on your results compared with the rest of the field throughout the week.
Online Day 1s in the Grand Prix Canada have been running since mid-July, including every day this week, and so far – before a single live card has been pitched – there are already 90 players qualified for one of the two Day 2s in the event! Just this week, 21 new Day 2 entries have been booked, and Online Day 1s continue every night until Sunday, when the final two online Day 1s will run.
Online players will be very happy to note that both the desktop and mobile partypoker client software has been updated in the past few days. The lobby and game play interfaces have both been improved in this first round of updates – making it more of a pleasure than ever to play on partypoker!
Sunday will also mark another shift in the event as attention turns to Live Day 1s here at Playground Poker Club. There will be a total of 17 Live Day 1s in the event, giving players plenty of opportunity to qualify for Day 2 – and to do so with as large a stack as possible! Before you play, you may want to check the published results so far to see the players you’re competing with. The chip leader to date, Mike Holdsworth, has amassed a monster stack of 1,168,000 chips that will return to play in the Live Day 2 on Sunday August 20th at 1:00pm.
Remember, if you qualify for Day 3 via the online Day 2 in this event you’ll win a Golden Chip – and then if you make the final table, you’ll win an amazing Caribbean Poker Party package worth $10,000! There are 5 more online Day 1s through which you may qualify for the Online Day 2 – plenty of time to book your way thought to the latter stages of this tournament. Good luck!
