$100,000 Deep Stack - Chicago's Largest Poker Tournament of All Time?

The Main Event Charity Games Deep Stack event, possibly the largest poker tournament in Chicago history, and the main attraction for Season Two of Windy City Poker Championship, kicked off this past Saturday at the Irish American Heritage Center in Chicago. 27 players competed in "Flight 1a", the first of five or more flights over the next four months, leading to Day Two of the Televised Deep Stack, major prize pool event.

Each of the "Day 1 Flights" plays down to 25% of the starting field, with the survivors moving on to "Day 2" which will be held in late November, followed by a "Day 3". Players may compete in any of the Day 1 flights, and players not advancing may re-enter additional Day 1 flights until they advance, if they choose.
