Day 1 starts at noon and the players will be playing eleven one-hour levels. After the sixth level there will be a 90-minute dinner break. The first five levels will be without an ante but starting with level six every player will have to contribute every hand if they want to receive cards. As per usual during the series, players will start with three times the amount of the buy-in as the starting stack: 3,000.
