WSOP Announces Changes to Monster Stack Event

Due to high demand for the first-ever $1,500 Monster Stack event set to begin on Thursday, the World Series of Poker announced that an additional starting flight has been added in order to "accommodate as many people as possible."

According to WSOP VP of Corporate Communications Seth Palansky, the Monster Stack tournament will kick off at 12 p.m. on Thursday as planned, but Day 1 will now last nine levels without a dinner break. The second flight will begin at 5 p.m. and will also play nine levels, also without a scheduled dinner break.

Palansky made it clear that this is not a re-entry event. All players eliminated during the first flight will not be allowed to play in the second flight.

Players that are already registered for the event will remain part of Thursday's noon flight. However, those who wish to switch from the noon flight to the 5 p.m. flight can do so at the WSOP registration cage.

Palansky tweeted on Wednesday that he is expecting more than 4,000 for the first flight of the Monster Stack Event. "Not nearly as many will fit into Flight B," he said.

The Ante-Only Final Table

Simeon Naydenov hunts his second bracelet.

A champion will be crowned in the $1,500 Ante-Only No-Limit Hold'em event sometime today as nine players return to vie for the title.

The final table will kick off this afternoon with two-time 2013 World Series of Poker Europe final table participant Jeremy Joseph in the lead and 2013 WSOP bracelet winner Simeon Naydenov hot on his heels.

Day 1 leader Ryan D'Angelo will be making his third WSOP final table appearance in the quest for his first bracelet, while fellow well known pro Adam Levy is on the big stage for the first time following a few near misses.

Also at the final table is the ironically named amateur Arthur Pro, who came a heartbreaking second in a $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em event in 2013 and Jesse McEuen, making his second WSOP final table appearance,

The rest of the pack includes first time WSOP final table participants Rhys Jones, Herbert Yarbrough and Jonas Lauck.

The cards will hit the air with sizable antes and without blinds at 1 p.m. and the PokerNews Live Reporting Team will be here to provide hand-for-hand coverage until the bracelet and the $212,093 first-place prize that goes with it is handed out.
