Level 1: 1,000/1,000 (1,000)
Cards are in the air for Day 1b of the PokerListings Championship with a starting field of 43 players. Players have plenty of time to get into the action with late registration open for eight blind levels, during which time players can re-enter one time.
Players start the action with 200,000 in chips with blinds increasing slowly every 30 minutes. This is nearly unheard of for a £120 buy-in event. Players will bag up their stacks once the field is trimmed down to just 15 percent. At this point, all players will be in the money along with yesterday's Day 1a survivors and tomorrow's Day 1c survivors, and will compete for the title on Wednesday, Feb. 15.
Optibet is out in full force with three qualifiers from Latvia in action including Optibet streamer Gatis Reigass, Dmitrijs Meless, and Rinalds Zimka.
Gatis Reigass - 200,000
Dmitrijs Melss - 200,000
Rinalds Zimka - 200,000
