These events allow players to re-enter on another Day 1 even if they have finished a previous Day 1 with chips. In the event that a player makes it past more than one Day 1 with chips, the player will start Day 2 with their largest stack while all other chips will be forfeited.

A 3% staff gratuity will be withheld from the prize pool of each of these tournaments.

There are several ways players can qualify for the Main Event:

  • Direct buy-in for $1,100 CDN.
  • Win a direct entry when you are selected to spin the MegaWheel while sitting at a cash table.
  • Win a seat in the $100 + $10 Full Tilt Poker Mega Overlay event (August 22nd – 25th only at Playground Poker Club). This event features three day ones, and in addition to the huge prize pool, Full Tilt Poker is adding 50 seats!
  • Win a seat in one of our weekly satellites. Every Saturday starting in August, up until the Main Event, we will be rotating between a $50 + $10 Rebuy and a $100 + $10 Re-entry. Each of these satellites is guaranteed to have a 5 seat overlay!
  • 5 seats will be awarded through Facebook promotions. Make sure you participate.
