CPPT Main Event (Flight B)Level 10 (400/800/100)
Total Entrants: 94
Players Remaining: 52
Just over 50 players have returned from the post-Level 9 break and will play three more levels to end Flight B of this $300,000 GTD Card Player Poker Tour Main Event.
That last time we had a two starting flight formatted event we broke down some numbers as to how many players would advance from the second flight based on the numbers from the first, and while we are getting a little late in the day, we figured why not do it again...
64 players advanced from Flight A from an original player pool of 188 players, yielding a "survival" rate of 34%.
Using that same formula to determine how many will survive from this flight, we will take the total player pool of Flight B, 94 players, and multiply that by 34% leading to a estimated "survival" number of 32 players.
That means that we should have close to 20 more players sent to the rail before the day is over and while math usually wins out in the long run, this blogger believes that we could see that number drop below 30 players as there is just close to two hours of poker left to be played.
We'll find out shortly and the Foxwoods Poker blog will be bringing you all the action as we continue to play through Flight B and head towards tomorrow's Day 2 session.
