Due to high demand for the first-ever $1,500 Monster Stack event set to begin on Thursday, the World Series of Poker announced that an additional starting flight has been added in order to "accommodate as many people as possible."
According to WSOP VP of Corporate Communications Seth Palansky, the Monster Stack tournament will kick off at 12 p.m. on Thursday as planned, but Day 1 will now last nine levels without a dinner break. The second flight will begin at 5 p.m. and will also play nine levels, also without a scheduled dinner break.
Palansky made it clear that this is not a re-entry event. All players eliminated during the first flight will not be allowed to play in the second flight.
Players that are already registered for the event will remain part of Thursday's noon flight. However, those who wish to switch from the noon flight to the 5 p.m. flight can do so at the WSOP registration cage.
Palansky tweeted on Wednesday that he is expecting more than 4,000 for the first flight of the Monster Stack Event. "Not nearly as many will fit into Flight B," he said.
