Game Over In the First Hand

[user38873] • Level 1: 25-25, 0 ante

You pay $1,500 for a tournament, sit down, get {J-}{6-} and flop two pair on {Q-}{J-}{6-}. On the turn another jack pops up and you now have a full house. The only problem is your opponent, who shows up with {Q-}{J-} and has the higher boat. Just seen on table 384 ... exit in the very first hand of play.

Shuffle Up And Deal!

Welcome to Day 1b of the Record-Breaking Millionaire Maker No-Limit Hold'em

Hello and welcome to Day 1b of Event #8: $1,500 Millionaire Maker No-Limit Hold'em, a tournament so large that Day 1a and 1b are running concurrently and completely filling the available space of the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino's three vast tournament rooms.

This tournament has over 6,800 players registered in it and we fully expect a massive crowd to buy into the second and final starting flight. Judging by the queue that stretches from the registration desk to the Poker Kitchen, we could possibly hit 8,000 runners in total, and that is completely nuts when you think about it.

The Day 1b field will not only have plenty of fresh faces, but also anyone who played and busted on Day 1a and fancies exchanging an extra $1,500 for 4,500 tournament chips and the chance to become the latest poker millionaire.

Plan for today is to play nine 60-minute levels with a break at the end of every second level.

Hold onto your hats, ladies and gentlemen, this should be a fast and bumpy ride.
