Day 1A Entries: 429

Cards are in the air for the eagerly anticipated 2018 Bar Poker Open National Championship!

Players are set and ready to go in the Golden Nugget ballroom from more than 40 poker leagues around the country all aiming to become the next BPO National Champion. We have tournament champions, online qualifiers, and specially invited players that include the top ranked grinders from each league.

Players sat down to 25,000 deep stacks with an option for a $5 dealer add-on for an extra 5,000 chips. The tournament will run 30-minutes levels throughout the event. Late registration is open until the start of Level 5 around 1:15pm but players cannot re-enter today’s flight if they are eliminated, Flight B is open to those eliminated players who wish to take another shot at the National Championship. There is a 45-minute dinner break scheduled at 6:30pm and they will return to play out the day.

Approximately 10% of the starting field will be in the money with a min-cash earning $500. Play will come to an end when 5% of the players remain and they will move to Day 2 on Wednesday. This is a best-stack-forward tournament and players who bag chips in Flight A can return tomorrow for Flight B for a chance to build a bigger bag. If anyone advances two stacks, the biggest stack will be put in play at the start of Day 2 and that player will pick up a Day 2 min-cash for the smaller stack.

We expect a fun, full day of poker, stay tuned for continuing coverage!
