On the third day of the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker 2020 (WCOOP), the first of six events with a five-figure buy-in awaits as Day 1 of the WCOOP-10-H: $10,300 NLHE [8-Max, High Roller] kicks off at 1.05 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. The tournament comes with a guarantee of $1,000,000 and will certainly attract some of the biggest names in the world of online poker.
As usual, the flagship events on PokerStars feature a slow structure and the late registration is available for the first 5 hours and 5 minutes of play. During that period, players can re-enter up to two times and the tournament features a starting stack of 250,000.
The first 18 levels are 20-minutes long whereas the duration for the remainder of the event beyond that then increases to 30 minutes each. An initial time bank of 60 seconds is granted and 10 seconds will be added for each hour of play.
This event will play down to a champion throughout two days and Day 1 will wrap up once the money bubble has burst. One day later, all survivors will return at 1.05 p.m. EST to then determine a winner and the final table in this 8-max format will commence when nine players remain. All finalists will receive an additional 90 seconds of time bank.
The PokerNews live reporting team will provide all he action from start to finish, and the final day will also be broadcasted on the PokerStars Twitch channel with cards-up coverage on a delay of at least 20 minutes.
