Welcome to the third opening flight of THE GIANT at the 2017 World Series of Poker. This tournament offers players of all buy-in levels a chance at a bracelet with a buy-in of $365, the most affordable live no-limit hold’em event ever offered for a WSOP bracelet.
This is the third of five Friday night flights, with the remainder coming on June 30 and July 7. Day 2 will commence on Saturday, July 8.
Day 1a drew 1,629 entries and Day 1b had 1,230, with Valentin Vornicu bagging the biggest overall stack with 869,500. Chances are, that number won't be topped tonight, but it gives everyone here something to shoot for.
Cards are in the air at 7 p.m. with play scheduled to last eighteen 20-minute levels or down to 10 players, whichever comes first. Late registration is open for eight levels which will be approximately 10 p.m. Play is expected to end at around 2:40 a.m.
Stay tuned for coverage of tonight's flight of THE GIANT!
