Welcome back to Event #5: €1,100 MONSTER STACK No-Limit Hold'em. The Vegas sensation has returned to King's Casino in Rozvadov for a five-day event with three starting flights. Yesterday's first starting day drew 148 entrants, of which 30 made it through. Today at 3 p.m. local time, Day 1B will kick off for another fourteen 40-minute levels.
As the name implies, players receive a whopping 40,000 to work with and a structure that allows room for some deep stacked play. Late registration is possible until the end of the break after Level 12, which will be around 12:25 a.m. Players can only reenter in one of the next flights with a maximum of three entries per player. After every three levels or when color-ups need to take place, a 15-minute break will take place. A 40-minute dinner break is scheduled after Level 6 which will be around 7:20 PM.
