Event 6 - the $200,000 Guaranteed $425 - drew a record crowd of 929 entries when this was held in January and had a total prize pool of more than $340,000. Today's Day1A field is 39 entries higher than the record-setting tourney's Day 1, so could 1,000 total be a possibility?
Here's what the record-field numbers looked like.
$346,935 - Prize Pool
$63,000 - First Place (Kathy Stahl)
929 - Total Entries
407 - Day 1D Total Entries
212 - Day 1B Total Entries
173 - Day 1C Total Entries
137 - Day 1A Total Entries
96 - Players who advanced to Day 2
Today's Day 1A is already larger than 2 of the 4 starting flights from last January's record-setting field ... Tune in tomorrow and see the numbers grow.
