Thanks
I believe you will be fine at 10am. But no way for me to know for sure since this is our first time running such event. Hope to see you there.

That is why we scheduled the Big Stax 300 day 1s on Wed Thur Fri. So that you can take one day off work and then if you make it through your day 2 and 3 is on Saturday and Sunday.

We are doing what we can to accommodate the most players possible.

Sorry if this was answered earlier in the thread.

Will re-entries take priority over new entries?

I'm planning on playing Day 1 C, but arriving a bit late. Any chance getting into the tournament around level 4 is going to be a problem?

Re-entries will always get priority because thet are already invested but with 91 tables available I don't expect it to be an issue. I assume by level 4 you will get right in.

300 dollar 30 big stack 150k guarantee
I understand this has 3 starting days wed, tursday friday
Does it conclude on Saturday?
Ty

Ok looked up a few posts and saw there is a day 3 Sunday so Sunday it concludes? I really don't care for multiple day tourneys but will be willing to make exception for this one. Last 150k I played in was Mohegan Sun a 2 day affair I am sure this one will have more then the 150 or so runners mohegan sun had.

All right folks - I'm registered for the big stax 300 event's day 1a; the table/ seat assignment is indeed provided when you register. The process was smooth today; and, not too many people were in line either.

I highly advise others to pre-register if they can.

I dot think anyone could say for sure, but I would think there would be quite the line Fri am at 10:00.... I just preregistered for Friday, I would suggest that as your best chance to be sure to get in. ( although Matt did say they would have 91 tables available, that's over 900 players) save yourself the trouble and register early if you can to avoid the line.

I've seen a lot of people on this forum and others all saying they're playing 1c.. I'm driving up with a buddy Thursday night. Anyone know if registration closes at a certain time or is it open all night? We're prolly not getting into town until after 3am.. Just booked a room at InnPlace, and more rooms were available.. Just mentioned parx and got a room for $69..

Was at Parx earlier......#15 for day 1a at 9pm tonight. I'm guessing 450-550 runners on Weds, 300-324 on thurs and 500-600 on Fri........

They are GTD 150k, expect 250k-300k prize pool I think. Great place to play with very good stuff. Should be a nice time. Have fun everyone.

I wish i could register a few days before but as I am 2 hours away no choice but to come in on day of tourney in this case Friday. Had to juggle schedule just to be able to play Friday 11am game. Will try and leave at 6:30 am so get there well before nine am.

Going to strart making hotel reservations if I don't make it to Sunday will play ring games. Always wanted to play the 2 5 nl with the 1k buy in but am nervous buying in full amount.
