Today’s kickoff event in the 7 Year Anniversary celebrations here at Playground Poker Club is a $90 + $10 NL Hold’em Survivor tournament. It’s a sunny and cold December day in the Montreal area – a perfect day to spend inside at the poker table!
The Survivor format has quickly become a favourite event in Playground Poker Club’s festival schedules. The format is a little bit different than a regular poker tournament: instead of playing down to a single winner, play continues until 10% of the field remains – at which time play is halted and everyone still in the event gets an even share of the prize pool!
In a way, it’s similar to a satellite tourney – except that the prize at the end is cash!
A Survivor event such as this one will give the winners a very nice prize at the end of the night – and because play doesn’t continue through the bubble, the pace of the event – and its finishing time – is sure to be very appealing as well.
Registration today is open until the end of the break following level 4, meaning that you can join the event any time until 1:30pm.
