There are some great new events on the calendar as the Playground Power Weekend returns from June 15th to 21st. With 5 tournaments on the schedule, there’s something for everyone!
Kicking off the weekend will be the All-Stars for Starlight
event. The event, hosted by hockey legend Larry Robinson, is a $135 + $25 NL Hold'em Re-entry
tournament with a massive $100,000 Guaranteed Prize Pool
! It features 4 starting flights on June 15th, 16th and 17th at 7:00pm plus one additional flight on Friday June 17th at 11:00am.
The $25 tournament fee will be given as a charitable contribution to the Starlight Children's Foundation Canada
. Visit the Power Weekend mini-site for more information.
There are three additional events before (and during) the Power Weekend Main Event.
- Wednesday June 15th at 12:00pm: The ever-popular $70 + $10 NL Hold’em Win the Button.
- Thursday June 16th at 12:00pm: A $90 + $10 + $25 NL Hold’em Bounty.
- Sunday June 19th at 7:30pm: A huge $100 + $20 + $100 NL Hold’em 50/50 Bounty.
The Power Weekend Main Event is a $500 + $50 NL Hold’em Deepstack Re-entry
tournament. There are two starting days: Day 1a on Saturday June 18th at 3:00pm and Day 1b on Sunday June 19th at 11:00am.
This tournament is a little different than our usual next-day re-entry events - players are permitted one entry AND one re-entry per starting day (until the end of level 6). Players who qualify for Day 2 will return on Monday June 20th at 7:00pm and the final Day 3 will begin on June 21st at 7:00pm.
