Day 4 Pregame

Craig Cunningham likes to — during the main event particularly — look at data, tabulate it, and occasionally share the results with his fellow poker bloggers. Today he sends along a good quick-list of the blind levels we’ll be seeing today, and some interesting thoughts on picking out the likely chip leaders as we whittle our way down to fewer and fewer tables:

No time for great wisdom today and analysis (maybe tomorrow). I would point you to the table tab which is my favorite to look for. I always total the chips at each table when we get to this stage to see where the big tables are. The big tables often yield chip leaders as we move into Day 4 and beyond. Iggy’s table has the fifth most chips to start with only eight players to begin with, including Jeremiah Smith (2nd in chips at just over a million). Structure below.

SB BB Ante Pot
Level 16 2,500 5,000 500 12,000
Level 17 3,000 6,000 1,000 18,000
Level 18 4,000 8,000 1,000 21,000
Level 19 5,000 10,000 1,000 24,000
Level 20 6,000 12,000 2,000 36,000
Level 21 8,000 16,000 2,000 42,000

Obviously there are only five levels in play today (16-20), but as is the case for the players at the tables, you gotta know what’s coming up (in level 21) to make proper decisions before it.
