    Default WSOP question

    Generally the Main Event gets about 7000 entrants, and looking at the structure: 3 days before the "bubble" bursts (about 1000 players get money), and 7 to get to a final table. They play 5 blind levels a day, so I'm curious: what day would someone be eliminated in approximately 575th place?

    It's helpful if you define any acronyms. I assume you mean this?: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Series_of_Poker

    Oops! Sorry, yes that's EXACTLY what I mean. A case of "I knew what I meant".

    Thanks. Not sure about the answer to your question, though - I'll leave that to somebody better at math than I ever was.

    Reading the Dope, DeadCat seems like he'd know. If possible, ask him.

    I saw that, thanks.

    BTW: ask if the show/character won award or about its Nielsen ratings.

    Dead Cat sends his regards and asked me to post his answer:

    It's an oddly specific question - I didn't know the answer but I was interested to try and find it. The page below suggests day 4 is the answer, at least for 2017. If you scroll down, at the bottom of the first article on the page it mentions Scotty Nguyen busting in 549th place, which is close enough. Also bear in mind that day 4 is actually the seventh day of poker action, after three day 1s and two day 2s.

    Thanks EH and Cat! Very helpful! (And yeah, oddly specific). I knew there were multiple D1 and D2s
