The first three opening flights on May 6-8 feature long 60-minute blind levels. The Day 1D field on May 8 will be faster paced with 30-minute blind levels while the final opening flight on May 9 will feature even quicker 20-minute blind levels.

Players will have plenty of opportunities to build a monster stack with unlimited re-entries are permitted until the conclusion of Level 12, which coincides with the fourth blind level of Day 2 on May 9 when blind levels increase to 75-minutes in length.

Those bagging chips on Day 2 will compete for three more days on May 10-12 until a winner is crowned.
