Final Starting Flight of the 2022 WSOP Main Event Kicks Off at 11 a.m.

The fourth and final starting flight of Event #70: $10,000 World Series of Poker Main Event is slated to kick off beginning at 11 a.m. local time on Wednesday.

Many have predicted this year's tournament to surpass the previous record of 8,773 entrants set back in the 2006 Main Event. Day 1c added 1,800 entrants to the field, bringing the running total up to 3,580 players. With the largest flight yet to come and late registration still open, there's no telling how big this field will become.

Patrick Clarke (397,200) leads the way of all remaining players after a spectacular performance on Day 1c. He surpassed both the Day 1a leader, Cedrric Trevino (317,800) and the Day 1b leader, Patrick Hagenlocher. The top five after three flights is rounded out by Day 1c's Marcus Stein (336,800) and David Eldridge (308,000).

Some other big names to bag stacks in Day 1c included 2015 champion Joe McKeehen (95,000), Rafael Moraes (172,800), Maria Ho (116,700), Brian Hastings (136,900), and JJ Liu (131,500).

Each player will sit down with 60,000 chips. Play today will consist of five 120-minute levels, with a 20-minute break following levels 1, 2, and 4. A 75-minute dinner break will follow Level 3.

This is the fourth and final starting flight for Event #70: $10,000 WSOP Main Event 53rd No-Limit Hold'em Championship. Late registration will remain open through seven levels, meaning players are able to late register through the first two levels of either Day 2. Players who survive today in Day 1d will return on Friday, July 8 for Day 2d. (View the complete structure sheet here.)

Recently, WSOP organizers opted to move Day 1c survivors to the first Day 2 as they anticipate a huge crowd to turn up for Day 1d, giving today's survivors their own Day 2. WSOP Officials, in anticipation of a massive Day 1d field, have warned players to be prepared for 10-handed play and long lines for alternate seating
