Single Day High Roller in Action
The tournament was scheduled to start at 12:30 PM local time and was originally billed at a $100,000 for the Single Day Super High Roller, which was changed, as only two players were registered at the start time. The High rollers had talks between themselves regarding the structure of the tournament and the probable outcome and how it should look like, and finally decided to settle with an agreement. The final buy-in of the tournament got reduced to $50,000 and the duration of the level was shortened to 20 minutes. Instead of unlimited re-entries players were only allowed to do a single re-entry during the first ten levels of play.
Finally at 3:15 PM local time, the tournament was underway consisting of twelve players in their respective seats.
