Today’s Event #2 in the Playground Winter Festival is a tournament that debuted just a couple of months ago in the 2017 Playground Poker Fall Classic. The nickname for the event is “The Crazy $80” and it’s a $70 + $10 NL Hold’em event. The event features 4 Day 1s – one a day from today until Thursday – and each Day 1 allows unlimited re-entries during the first 4 levels of play. The other interesting feature of this tournament is that instead of playing through a set number of levels, each Day 1 will play until 10% of the field remains.
With a $20,000 prize pool guarantee, this tourney is a considerable upgrade on the usual afternoon tournaments, and with several chances available to qualify for Day 2, it won’t be surprising to see several players qualify multiple times with the goal of taking the best stack to the final day.
Cards will be in the air in about 30 minutes!
