Late starter Bloch in the hunt at WPT Festa
For the first time ever, the Bellagio allowed Festa al Lago players to register for the event all the way up until the start of the tournament's ninth 90-minute level - Late on Day 2.
But while critics argue beginning with a 60,000 chip starting stack when the blinds are more than ten times what they were in Level 1 leaves you at a disadvantage, Bloch, who started in the middle of Level 8, sees things a little differently.
"In reality, if everybody was an equal player, then there would be a slight advantage to coming late because you would be slightly closer to making the money," said the Team Freddy Deeb and Matt Stout, still in the hunt.
