Level 4 (100/200/25)
Total Day 1A Entries: 120
We’ve just moved into Level 4 of the Borgata Poker Player’s Series 500 meaning that we are now halfway through the late registration period as the cage will close after the completion of Level 6.
We’ve seen the number of registrations slow over the last level, but with just over an hour and a half remaining in the late registration period, that number should continue to grow over the next three levels.
It’s also been interesting to see players battle with a “double play” structure strategy as a few players that bought in early in the day are now sitting extremely short and are now forced to try to spin up a stack instead of busting and re-entering like most would in a “regularly” structured tournament.
If those players are unable to turn their stacks around, they’ll have to wait until tomorrow’s Day 1B flight for their chance to make Day 2, as each player is limited to only one entry per starting flight.
Over the next few levels we will continue to update you on the overall tournament size and notable players in the field.
