Day 1a of WSOP $1,700 Main Event Begins at 11 am

After nine prior events, the biggest buy-in of the week kicks off today at 11 am for the WSOPC at Hard Rock Tulsa, Oklahoma. The $1,700 draws in players from far and wide to claim the WSOPC Main Event Title. 

Last March, it was John Lopez who conquered the field of 476 and bested Richard Gebhart heads up to take down a career-best score of $145,876. Time will tell whether or not Lopez will come to defend his title, but many of the WSOPC regulars are hungry to prove themselves on this massive stage and sit among the likes of former WSOPC Tulsa Main Event champions like Will Berry and Arthur Morris. 

This week has seen regulars on the circuit find success. Brent Gregory won the first event for his second WSOPC ring, and found a final table later in the week to add to his successes. Joshua Brower found himself runner up to Timothy “T.J.” Cunningham in Event #3: $400 No-Limit Hold’em, but a few events later found himself beating Joseph “Joey” Gargiulo heads up in Event #7: $400 Mystery Bounty for his first ring. Gargiulo has had a successful week himself after final tabling three WSOPC events. Those are just a few of the many success stories in Tulsa this week and the Main event is bound to bring some more. 

Plenty of notables have made their appearances this week. Players like Daniel Lowery, John Reynolds, Pete Petree, Ari Engel, Ashley “PokerFaceAsh” Frank, Daniel Hughes, and Steven Buckner are just a few names likely to appear throughout the duration of the entry flights. 

Players will begin the tournament with 40,000 in chips with blinds beginning at 100/200 with a 200 big blind ante. The levels will last 40 minutes each, with a 15-minute break occurring at the conclusion of every three levels. A 90-minute dinner break will occur at the conclusion of Level 9, after which players will return and have another three levels to enter the event. After registration closes at the beginning of Level 13, the players will continue to play for another three levels before bagging up for Day 2.
