Two levels in, the tables are filling up nicely, and we’re actually starting to worry a bit about capacity in the venue for tomorrow, what with Day 1b traditionally hosting a higher proportion of locals and online qualifiers than Day 1a – not to mention the effects of the unlimited rebuy format throughout the two start days. We’re sure we’ll find room for them all, somehow. First world problems.
Despite the numbers looking extremely good at the moment, familiar faces are as yet a bit thin on the ground for Day 1a. However, they’re still streaming in as we type, and we are looking forward to the preliminary player list, which we have been promised will appear during the first break in around 45 minutes’ time.
