2012 World Series of Poker

Event 52: $2,500 10-Game Mix - Six-Handed
Tage: 1

Late Restart

Level 8

At the World Series of Poker, events that start at 5 p.m. tend to restart at 2 p.m. the next day. This is because play ends at around 2 a.m., and they want to allow players to have a full 12 hours to rest before play resumes.

A few minutes ago, a tournament director announced that Event 52: $2,500 10-Game Mix - Six-Handed will resume at 3 p.m. tomorrow rather than 2 p.m. We're not sure why, but we're guessing it's because there are still 50 players remaining in Event 50: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em, and $1,000 Ladies No-Limit Hold'em Championship is returning for Day 2 with over 100 players. There is also a $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em event tomorrow at noon that should attract a lot of players.

Regardless of the reason, players have mixed opinions about the restart being pushed back.

"I just want to make Day 2," Jonathan Aguiar told us. "So I can come back at three and be able to sleep in."

At an adjacent table, Raymond Davis, Matt Stout, and Vanessa Selbst are talking about the effects it has on double-dipping.

"You can't late-reg now," Davis announced. "It's too close."

"You can buy in at noon and try to run it up though," Selbst added.
