Players in Event 16 are now on their third break of the night. There are still 52 of the original 167 in the tournament, but that number figures to decrease at an increasing rate as blinds continue to grow.
Play in Event 16 has reached the middle of level 3 and there are already 146 players in the fray. Plus, there are 30 minutes more of late registration, so that figure should still climb before registration in the tournament is over.
Here are some photos from the early action in the event:
Event 16 of the partypoker.net Playground Poker Spring Classic is the traditional closing event in Playground-hosted events: a bounty tournament. This year’s version is a $200 + $30 + $100 Bounty, meaning that each buy-in contributes $200 to the prize pool and $100 in the form of a $100 bounty chip. The bounty chip is kept by each player along with their chip stack, and when someone is eliminated from the tournament, they must give their bounty chip directly to the player who did the deed.
Late registration is open in this event until the end of the break following level 4, which is to say you can join the event until 9:05pm.
