As the Main Event was going on, a bit of remodelling was done for the new show of PokerStars called Shark Stage. It will showcase a winner-take-all format and will have a 30-second shot clock. The stage will have a real cage. This is where the victim of the river bluff will stand forcing them to miss an orbit. The first round of players had an online qualifier, Lex Veldhuis, Tony Dunst, Jason Alexander and Phil Laak.
When the closing levels were happening, a second flight started. This featured Jennifer Tilly, Philipp Gruissem, Faraz Jaka and Theo Jorgensen.
Day 2 will be starting at noon and will have another 8 levels of play.
