The crown jewel of the 2022 World Series of Poker International Circuit Caribbean is off to a great start thanks to a total of 118 entries in the $1,700 Main Event, putting the tournament on track to nearly meet the $200,000 guarantee in the first flight already. An even bigger field is expected for Day 1b, which is slated to kick off at 6pm local time on Saturday, April 2, 2022, at the Casino Royale on Sint Maarten.
La Sengphet sits at the top of the leaderboard with 205,000 in chips and continues her excellent form during the series so far. Only two days ago, Sengphet won her sixth WSOPC title in Ring Event #8 $400 Black Chip Bounty, securing the top prize of $15.000 and she topped 49 survivors on Day 1a after leaping into the top spot after the dinner break and remaining there throughout the night.
All those wishing to take a shot at the coveted gold ring and entry into the $1 million guaranteed Tournament of Champions during the 2022 WSOP in Las Vegas can enter all day long and in the first two levels of Day 2. A total of ten levels of 40 minutes each are scheduled and one re-entry can be purchased per day for a maximum of four entries total in the flagship tournament.
At 7.45pm local time, there will be a 75-minute dinner break and the action then resumes at 9pm local time. Bagging and tagging for the night is expected to take place around 2.30 am local time.
Main Event Day 1 Level Structure:
|Level||Duration||Small Blind||Big Blind||Big Blind Ante|
Another WSOPC Ring Event awaits as of 6pm local time at the Casino Royale as well. Event #11 $300 NLHE Turbo features levels of 20 minutes and will rung alongside the Main Event to play down to a winner. Gaetan Balleur emerged victorious in the only one-day Turbo tournament of the series so far but will likely focus on the Main Event instead after he was eliminated on Day 1a.
All updates today will focus on the $1,700 marquee event.
