2011 World Series of Poker: The Main Event Is Here
Thursday, July 07, 2011
by Bodog Poker
Today at noon, the $10,000 buy-in World Series of Poker* Main Event begins with the first of four starting days. Each of the four starting days (shown as Day 1A, 1B, 1C and 1D) features 10 playing hours with two five-hour levels. With a 90-minute dinner break and 20-minute breaks after each level of play, it's a long day — 13 hours of poker from start to finish.
If a player survives today's competition, they'll come back on Monday as part of Day 2A along with the players who made it through Saturday's plays in Day 1C. Days 1 and 2 of the WSOP Main Event will play five two-hour levels. Players can expect to start at 12 noon each day and play until 12:45 am.
ESPN is going to be on hand at this year's event, televising all the major action and showing hole cars on select feature tables in a 30-minute delay.
Bodog Poker has sent 43 players who qualified in our online poker events to this year's event along with our pros Evelyn Ng and Tatjana Pasalic. Of course, if you didn't qualify already, you've still got a chance to show up on Friday or Sunday.
