It depends on the time of year. If it's during a week of a holiday, it fills up fairly quickly(Registration starts at 4 for the 7PM tourney), fill up is usually around 6ish. They do take alternates, but they only take them for the first hour. I'd recommend getting there around 5 to get a seat.
Structure is 25/50 with 3000 starting stack. Blinds go up every 20 minutes, break every 3 rounds. The start with gradual increases, 25/50, 50/100, 75/150, then they do a double.
Most of the times I've played(~5) in this tourney, it's pretty easy to clear past the idiots, many times I've gotten it in with TPTK against TKWK or middle pair. Some of these people are willing to stack off with very little. By the end though, it becomes a shovefest because everyone is stuck around 10BB. From what I've had, a deal usually get's thrown around when there are 20 people or less.
