I played in the Monday $240 1 Day Final Event (shorter rounds) the past two years. Last year they had around 300. I'm playing this Sunday in the Final $240 2 Day Event.

I'm playing the Sunday as well. Any guestimites on # of runners? I'm wondering if there is a drop off after the ME runs.

Also is getting there at 9 to register instead of 10 or 11 worth it? I don't really want to wait in line for an hour.

No idea how many runners, getting here by 1030, registering and grabbing breakfast somewhere on property is probably the way to go, though

Went into the FT as chipleader but become short stack 5 handed and abused nlh/plo then won huge razz hands making nuts and 2nd nuts two hands in a row to become chipleader again and never lost it from that point on.

Field was filled with a lot of mixed game sickos and pretty tough for a $560 but ran pretty good the entire time.




I was at your table at start of day 2, seat 6



Thanks, you too. Really grueling FT too.
Congrats! It's great to see a 2+2er ship the MTT. I wish I got to meet more 2+2ers in the 7 game MTT. It seemed like there were a lot of 2+2ers in the field.

Overall, I was impressed with the 7-game MTT and thought the tournament structure was awesome. MTT seemed very well run except for the weird dinner break (forced time at 6:00PM).

The only possible improvement was maybe to play 12 levels instead of 10 on day 1. (It didn't end up mattering for me because i busted last hand in hand-for-hand in level 10 [LHE].) I'm glad to read they decided to play the whole thing out on Monday to avoid conflicts with the HU event.

GL to 2+2ers playing the ME and the rest of the series!

Their standard is to the first break, which I think is every 2 levels in the main (2 hours)

They were saying earlier ITT that there is no late registration. Registration was closed once the line to register is exhausted.
