Event 67: $3,500 No-Limit Hold’em $3,000,000 Guarantee
Total Entrants: 964
Players Remaining: 232
Almost 1,000 players entered over the course of the three starting flights for Event 67 of DSE III. Nearly one-quarter of those entries return for the start of Day 2 with more set to join them. In one of the toughest fields assembled inside of The Venetian this summer, we are set to play into the money and beyond.
As with all of the Day 1s, levels will be 60-minutes with breaks after every second level. There are 10 levels scheduled to be played before all remaining players bag up and return for Day 3. Entry is available through the end of Level 14 (approximately 4:30 pm) and all players who register during that time will come into play with the starting stack of 20,000.
Georgios Karakousis starts the day in front and is the only player over 300,000 chips. Karakousis is in charge for now but there are many players returning for Day 2 with over 100 big blinds including Eric Baldwin, John Moore, and Nick Petrangelo. All signs point to a loaded final table and the next step toward then is ready to get started. The Venetian Poker Room blog will have updates for all of Day 2 & 3 as the first part of the over $3,000,000 prize pool gets set to be handed out.
