Level 8 (500/1,000/100)
Total Entries: 56
1B Entrants: 40
After only three players advanced from yesterday’s starting flight of 19, the expectation would generally be that a similar percentage will advance from today’s flight. That does not seem to be the case, though, at this point as nearly half of the 40 entrants from 1B remain as Level 8 ticks down.
Without an additional starting flight to fall back on, players who would normally use the spin or bust tactic may instead preserve their stacks and look to climb the leaderboard on Day 2. The shorthanded tables also present a certain dynamic as instead of the standard nine-handed play, tables are now six or seven-handed.
It will be interesting to see how players employ these survival tactics and adjust to their playing environment as the action moves forward on Day 1B of the TRPC Main Event.
