The tournament director has just informed the players of the plan for the day. Day 1 will consist of eight levels with a break after every two levels. That means play will come to a close around 9:10 p.m. local time.
The tournament features unlimited re-entries on Day 1, though players will not be able to re-enter during the last 20 minutes of the night. Late registration and re-entries will then remain open until 15 minutes prior to the start of Day 2 on Saturday.
