The 2017 World Series of Poker introduces a new event today. Event #23: THE MARATHON - $2,620 No-Limit Hold'em is next up featuring a 26,200-chip starting stack — a nod to the 26.2-mile course of a marathon — with long 100-minute blind levels and five days of play.
Play starts at 11 a.m. today, with late registration lasting until the start of Day 2 tomorrow (at 12 noon). There will be a 15-minute break after every level and a 90-minute dinner break at the end of Level 4.
With the extended 100-minute levels of play, players will get full value for their money. This is expected to be a long, grueling grind that only the toughest will survive.
