The second flight of Event #11: $365 PLO GIANT Pot-Limit Omaha is slated to begin tonight at 7 p.m. local time, being held at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. The tournament will be running a total of five starting flights and will be held in the GIANT format that was introduced last year. There will be a flight every Sunday for the next five weeks and all remaining players from those flights will move on to the Day 2, which will be held on the Monday following the last flight played.
Every Day 1 will be playing 21 levels, each 20 minutes in length, and play will end after those levels are completed or if the field has been reduced down to just ten remaining. The players will be given a 20-minute break after every six levels of play and will not be having a dinner break on Day 1. There will be a starting stack of 25,000 and the blinds will begin at 25/50.
The late registration period runs until the end of Level 9 in which players can either enter or reenter if haven already busted. If a player makes it through on any given flight and opts to play another flight, their stack will then be forfeited from the previous flight. Players will play into the money during each flight and the remaining prize pool not awarded will be carried over to Day 2. Players may cash in multiple flights if they reach the top 15% of any flight, yet don’t survive with chips.
