In the “real” world it’s Canada Day, or maybe moving day for some people – but here at Playground Poker Club, it’s a special day for a very different reason – it’s time for the Tag Team tournament!
Over the years this has proven to be one of the most popular events held at Playground Poker Club – it almost always sells out, and the “team” aspect of the tourney adds a buzz to the room that’s only found during the biggest events we host.
The formula for the Tag Team at Playground Poker Club is simple: players register in teams of 2 players each, but then play the first 6 levels as an individual. After level 6, there is a full seating redraw, and each team takes one seat at their new table, merging the two stacks into one (hopefully larger) stack that will be used to continue the tournament. For the rest of the tournament, teammates alternate, switching at the beginning of each new level.
While one team member is playing, he or she can only consult with a partner during a hand by using a “consultation chip” – and each team only gets three of these to start. Teams can accumulate additional consultation chips by eliminating their competition – one extra chip for each team eliminated.
This is certain to be a blockbuster tournament, and cards will be in the air in about half an hour. Late registration is open until the end of level 6 – exceptionally, NOT until the end of that break.
Good luck to all of the teams today!
