One of the innovative elements in the 2018 MILLIONS Main Event is the partnership with Calgary’s Deerfoot Inn & Casino. Not only did Deerfoot run several satellites for the $5,300 Main Event, they’re also hosting a Day 1 and Day 2 in the tournament.
Day 1 kicked off today at 12:00pm (MDT) and will continue through 8 levels today, just like any other Day 1 in the tournament. Of course all of the rules and structure are identical at Deerfoot to those in place for the rest of the Main Event at Playground, which means that late registration continues throughout Day 1 and will remain open through the first 4 levels of play on Day 2.
So far, there are 20 entries with 19 currently remaining at the tables. Today’s field includes at least 1 Player to Watch – Thomas “Sandy” Taylor. Taylor has been one of the more prolific satellite qualifiers in the event – today he is using the first of 4 seats he has secured to date.
Taylor is a true “pro’s pro” who has 2 WSOP Circuit rings in his trophy case along with results all over the world over the past several years, including a final table at Playground Poker Club in the 2016 WPT Spring Championship.
Here are some photos from the action today.
