The highly-anticipated WSOP Millionaire Maker tournament started yesterday with the first flight at 10AM. It continues today with the second and final flight which starts at 10AM PST.
Players who bagged chips from Flight A (Friday), are ineligible to enter Flight B. They will have today (Saturday) off, and will resume play with the survivors of today’s poker play Sunday morning at 11:00 PST.
The Millionaire Maker is a No Limit Hold’em event that debuted in 2013. In 2013 and 2014, it drew the largest number of runners of all the WSOP events, over 6400 and 7900, respectively. This year’s Millionaire Maker is expected to draw a similar amount of participants. Still, it is unlikely that it will draw over 22K entrants that this year’s COLOSSUS event drew. We will have the final tally of entrants at end of day today.
Best of luck to all the poker players chasing a million dollar payout!
