It's just a few short years old, but any time the World Series of Poker fires up — be it in Europe, Las Vegas or anywhere else — The Colossus is certainly one of the most anticipated events on the schedule. There are 10 starting flights this time around and a €2 million guarantee for the €550 buy-in.
One flight is winding down, and it's time for another flight to get rolling as Day 1b is set to kick off as the dying embers of Day 1a flicker out and the chips go in the bags for the players who remain in the event.
Just like Day 1a and all of the rest of the flights for this event, the schedule calls for either 18 levels lasting 30 minutes apiece or play down to wherever Day 1a ends, which appears likely to bag before the scheduled levels. Players get 10,000 chips in their starting stacks and they may reenter once per flight. Breaks will be every four levels and last 20 minutes apiece.
