Two hours and twenty minutes after the original start time, the cards are in the air in the Amazon Room and the barn for the Heads-Up event. While it was originally rumored that a full field of 512 players had shown up, registration faltered somewhere around the late 400s, and thus more than 150 players will have buys until Round 2 begins, somewhere around the 5:00 p.m. PDT restart.
Among the marquee match-ups:
