The second of three Day 1 flights of the RunGood Showbound Main Event at Downstream is off and running. Players aiming for the top of the leaderboard have their work cut out for them as Craig Dick (pictured) bagged up the chip lead in Flight A with an impressive 309,000 chips. A total of 83 entries were notched in the first flight, with twelve players making it through to Day 2.
A third Day 1 flight is scheduled for 7 p.m. tonight. For a chance to win your Main Event seat at a discount, a $145 turbo satellite with a 5-seat guarantee will begin at 4 p.m.
Players entering the $575 buy-in Main Event will start with 20,000 chips and must survive twelve 30-minute levels to reach Sunday's Day 2. Late registration and unlimited re-entry are available until the start of Level 9 (approximately 4:30 pm). A full structure sheet can be found here.
Aside from the cash and glory, the players who reach the final table of the Main Event will receive a reserved seat in a freeroll satellite at the Hard Rock Tulsa for two $5,000 Sit & Go seats and the high roller experience of a lifetime at the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas.
