A typical example is the mix-max event held at the 2012 World Series of Poker, in which the first day of play was nine-handed, the second day six-handed, and the rest of the tournament heads-up. This effectively made it a hybrid freezeout–shootout tournament, with freezeout play at larger tables and shootout play in the heads-up phase. Sometimes the bigger field on the last of the several day 1's is just a matter of the calendar. If day #2 is a Saturday and you're planning to come to Vegas for the weekend, you play day 1 on Friday. Playing day 1 on Thursday requires an extra day on the trip.
