Lvl 1 – 25/50 – 6 players
Clock started exactly 1pm with 6 players.
Here we go again folks with redbetLIVE. We play 12 levels of poker in Day 1, with late reg/re-entry for the flight closing after level 9, which is around 18:15.
Flight 1C starts at 19:30, so plenty of opportunities for action today!
Players are slowly dripping in and the photographer has arrived to take some pro quality shots of the players.
Lvl 3 – 75/150 – 9/9 players
Nice friendly game running here, with good tunes and one valet for nine people! Chilled out action for a Saturday afternoon. Come and hang with us!
BREAK – 15 mins
Lvl 4 – 100/200 – 9/9 players
Small pots happening at the moment, with few rivers being seen. There are some good players here today, and decisions are being made fairly quickly.
Two tables with 10 players means that the play is 5 handed, and this allows for more hands to be played as the value of the hand you hold is higher against less people. With deep stacks and a very gentle structure, it’s a good opportunity to hone one’s short handed skills and get involved in more pots.
Lvl 6 – 150/300/25 – 10/11 players
1 re-entry later and we cruise into level 6.
BREAK – 15mins

Through to the last level of entry for Day 1b.
The play is solid and there is only one short stack in the field with 6k currently.
We had a short break from blogging to teach a couple of people how to play poker!
Hendrik Koops showing us how it’s done by late regging lvl 9, playing two hands and doubling up after flopping a set of sevens against James Holah’s pocket Aces. Brutal action!
