In the middle of July, the new “ChampionChip Games by 888poker” promotion kicked off by offering various starting flights for the $50 buy-in, $500,000 GTD Main Event. Those flights will run through Sunday, August 15.

Day 2 of the Main Event will then play out on Monday, August 16 at 18:00 GMT. The action from Day 2 will be live streamed on 888pokerTV.
