Good morning players! Get ready for what will surely be a packed house at the Metro Card Club with the last starting day of the 2 MILLION Guaranteed Main Event on deck. As it stands, 62 players have already advanced to Day 2. If you aren’t one of them, then head to the felt today. This is your last chance. Cards in the air at 3pm.
As always, the Metro event is suited for any type of bankroll with the buy-in set at a low P3,500+P500 fee. For those that bust out early, you will be allowed an additional two re-entries so time to make it count. However, keep in mind that registration closes at the start of Level 8. Players may also attempt for multiple stacks with only the best stack moving forward.
Important game info: Starting stack is 15,000. Level 1 blinds open at 25-50 with increases every 30 minutes. Players bag and tag at the end of 15 levels. After today’s final heat, Day 2 follows on Sunday, August 26. The Final Day is on Monday August 27. Both Day 2 and the Final Day will see the blinds increase every 40 minutes.
Day 1C recap
Yesterday’s Day 1C flight saw a lighter turnout than the previous days with 136 entries. 23 runners survived with Dominic Vitualla bagging up the largest stack of 242,400.
Impressively, Vitualla was the only player in this heat that amassed a stack in contention with the previous starting day leaders. He is currently ranked second overall with Day 1C leader, Jasper Salonga David way ahead. That may all change though with Day 1D still to go.
Familiar faces follow down the Day 1C chip rung with Benjamin Mangaliman stacking up the second highest of 157,000, and to round out the top three was David Erquiaga with 127,600. Also making it through were Metro multi-winners poker pro Lester Edoc (98,500) and Mark Amparo (101,600).
