be determined so you should start practicing your poker at the top sportsbooks
now and perhaps you can win some satellite tournaments to qualify for this
massive Montreal event.
Let’s break down the principal events a bit
The WPTDeepStacks Opener is a $500 + $50 with
seven starting flights. As mentioned above, the total prize money is a massive half-million dollars and with unlimited
re-entry, those with enough cash to buy back in have extra opportunity to take
home a large chunk of money.
The Playground 200 is a 200 +20, giving it its
name. This is a venue-dedicated event that is surely going to fill up quickly
with players from the WPTDeepStacks’other events because of its $100k in cash
pot. This one is also formatted with unlimited re-entry.
The WPTDeepStacks main Event is a single
re-entry format, so if you get pushed out of the table, you can buy back in
once. Though the $1500 + 500 cost isn’t cheap. However, with a $1 million
dollars up for grabs, this will be the main attraction and top players from the
WPT. That said, there are several satellites that can be bought in for a
fraction of the cost, just $150 + 15. Placing well in these will qualify you
for entrance into the main event without forking over two-large.
The actual tournament starts on April 22nd
with four starting flights live at Playground, and the aforementioned online
poker party being the first flight, on April 12th.
If you’ve got cash, you can join in on the
high-stakes action at the High Roller Tournament. This one is $2,300 + $200,
making for a $2,500.00 buy-in. But if you’ve got skills and can qualify, it is
worth it because this tournament is paying out $200k in cash. That said, it
will be loaded with pros, so even just getting in to test your mettle against
the best of the best could be worth it.
There is a high roller satellite with a buy-in at just 10% of the full
cost, $250 + 425 on April 24th with
unlimited re-entry. However, this particular satellite only has 5 seats
available. The actual WPTDeepStacks High Roller Tourney will be single
