The @AnteUpMagazine NorCal Classic Main Event kicks off at Noon this Friday, the first of two starting flights for this $555 buyin tournament. Day 1B goes at Noon on Saturday.
Players begin with 25,000 stacks and play 30-minute levels through the first day - and through Level 20 on Day 2 - going 40-minute levels after that point.
Late registration is open until the start of Level 9 - 4:25pm - for both starting flights. There is one re-entry per player per flight for the Main Event and this is NOT a Best Stack Forward event.
Day 1 play is scheduled for 17 Levels or when down to 15 percent of the starting field, whatever comes first. Play is set to wrap up Friday and Saturday at 9:20pm (no dinner break for starting flights, a quick day).
Winner of the NorCal Classic Main Event receives as part of the first place prize - an entry in the $1,650 Ante Up World Championships coming BACK to Thunder Valley again for 2017.
