Level 1: 100/100
The pre-game ceremonies are now underway with 33 players on the list waiting for cards to go in the air. The action begins with blinds at 100/100 with no ante, and the big blond ante will kick in starting with Level 2.
Among the players in the game today is Dario Barone, winner of this event in the spring of this year and he’ll no doubt be looking for another deep run here in the fall. Other players in the action to start Day 1a include Ori Hassan, Maria Katsourides, Giuseppe Grimaldi, and Antoine Bayard.
