The Ultra Rush is here!

After announcing this event during our September Mystery Rush, our brand new format debuted this week smack in the middle of a flurry of events in this area. The $1,100 Ultra Rush structure features 40 minutes of play for each of 13 day 1 levels. Day 2 levels increase to 50 minutes in length. New players, late entry and re-entry receive a full 40K starting stack. Late entry remains open right up until the completion of Day 1C. The prize pool for this event is guaranteed at $200,000!

Day 1A got us started Thursday night. Our only night flight for this event drew 77 entries. 17 Players advanced out of Day 1A, including our top 3 overall stacks. Daniel Kerney leads the event going into Day 2 with 369,000. Right on his tail are both Nicolas Vurgait and Bin Weng with 346,500 each. Friday's Day 1B added 49 players to our field, and 14 advanced to Day 2. Leading the way from Day 1B is Andrew Porter with 270,000.

Through 2 flights our field was at 126 entries and 31 Day 2 players. Day 1C has just kicked off with 52 players and counting in level 2. Registration remains open until about 8:30PM.
