    How long will the Big One II last folks?


    I am thinking start to finish.....8 hours?




    Have the rounds been extended like they were in the original Big One?

    Win4win,

    The schedule says todays special event structure #7 has 20 minute rounds. Twice what we have on our regular tournaments.

    :lol: :mrgreen: :roll: :lol: :shifty: :chuckle:

    Good luck,
    I hope you get second.

      Let me just say this. I went out and bought a six pack to see me through the event. Then I realized that would never be enough so I went back and bought a case of 24. It might be a long night for me as the start time here will be 9.00pm

        Should've gotten a keg, I think.

        I'm figuring on being up until midnight here (EST).

          A case of 24 is a pretty good start. :chuckle:

          That's only half the receipe for a shooter. :roll:

          You need about 3 liters of a good Scotman's brew to wash down the bitters.

          Scotman's brew also makes a good mouth wash when you get a case of cotton mouth. :shifty:

          Chivas Regal is my fav but I stored up some Cutty Sark for the long tournament.

            Hi all: Will there be any breaks or besides all the beer, vodka & orange juice, snacks etc. do I have to go & buy some Depends?

            Please advise.

            Thanks for all your help & good luck to all.

              You can rent real nice comfy potty chair, with side tray and everything you need to eat, drink, and ops: whatever else you have to do, at a very reasonable price for a day. Sure saves getting up and avoids diaper rash too I might add.
              Good Luck

                  i been trying to work out the times and my best guess is that
                  it starts at 8 pm (gmt)
                  by 3 30 am there will be 100 players left
                  i'll be in bed around 4 am(want to beat last years result)

                  the final 2 tables should break down too 1 table at around 7am
                  and the final table will last about 2 hours

                  so anyone in europe/UK hoping to make final table can order breakfast BEFORE bed now.

                    Babe: Thank you for your help. I've called all over town, all have said they are all out. Do you think everyone is going to be playing in the Big One.
