Troops going out to battle in the Vietnam war had a 50% of coming back and the same odds await the 270 players that are returning for Day 2 of the IPT Main Event. A minimum cash of €1,810 awaits the 135 last standing poker troops, and the bubble should burst at some point during the second half of the day.
The levels will be 60 minutes long from here on in and ten of them are scheduled for today. They’ll be a 75-minute dinner break after eight levels (approx. 9:15pm) and play will end around 12:15 am.
