What's Coming Up: Wednesday, October 16th

Tomorrow is the final day of preliminary event action, as the $1,100 Cardplayer Tour Main Event will be starting up on Thursday. We have a $50,000 Guaranteed Deepstack event tomorrow at 11:30 AM, but as we mentioned in an earlier blog post, we have a change to announce. You are going to get more chips tomorrow, 50,000 instead of the original 30,000, and the structure will stay the exact same. That means more play throughout the tournament for you guys. You can view a photo of the edited structure seat below.

In addition, we are giving you guys a chance to get into the Main Event on a discount, as we have a $350 buy-in satellite starting up at 4 PM. At least ten discounted seats are guaranteed to come out of that event, so be sure to come on down and join us tomorrow for all of the action!

Announcing a Structure Change for Tomorrow's $50,000 Guaranteed Event

After getting some feedback from the players, we have decided to give you guys more chips for tomorrow's $50,000 Guaranteed Event. Originally, players were going to start with 30,000 in chips, but now, we are upping that to a whopping 50,000.

The structure will remain the exact same,  so it will make for much deeper play for players earlier, as well as later on in the tournament.

Additionally, we are rewarding players who arrive early for tomorrow's big event. Not only will players start with 500 big blinds, but if you register in the first two hours of the event, you will get 40 point for our Player of the Series race, as opposed to the usual 20.

It should be a huge event tomorrow, so make sure you don't miss it!
