The cards are in the air in Event #41: $2,500 Freezeout No-Limit Hold'em
There won't be any second chances when Day 1 of the Event #41: $2,500 Freezeout No-Limit Hold'em event begins at 11 a.m. today. Players will begin the tournament with a starting stack of 35,000 and only get one shot at winning a World Series of Poker bracelet.
There was a similar $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em event held in 2019 but it wasn't a freezeout meaning you can't reenter, which was won by France's Ivan Deyra for $380,090. That tournament attracted 671 entrants which created a prize pool of $1,811,700 and featured final table appearances from both Patrick Leonard and Andras Nemeth.
The plan for today is to play 17 40-minute levels, with a 20-minute break taking place after every three levels and Days 2-3 having 60-minute levels. There will be a 75-minute dinner break at approximately 5:40 p.m. also, at the conclusion of Level 9 late registration will be closed.
As always, the PokerNews team will be on hand to provide live updates and chip counts throughout the tournament.
