Club Regent Casino Welcomed CA$500K GTD Spring 2019 PlayNow Poker Championship

The thing that attracts players to live poker events is the thrill of facing their rivals and training their poker face in real life conditions. Club Regent Casino ensured that everyone interested had the chance to do so over the last days of April with the help of the Spring 2019 PlayNow Poker Championship that commenced on April 24. Offering an alternative to online gaming, this congregation transformed the poker room in a matter of hours.

Once the coveted CA$600 No-Limit Hold β€˜em event had its Day 2 and reunited all survivors from the first one, April 26 gave a green light to another highly-anticipated poker tournament that featured a mandatory entry fee of CA$300. This is usually a sign of generous cash payouts coming and this time the event did not disappoint. Buy-in structure guaranteed that CA$225 went towards the swelling overall prize pool, CA$50 was reserved for the bounty pool, whereas the registration fee amounted to some CA$25.

PlayNow Offers Live Action

Every player entering the tournament received a chip stack of 7,500 chips providing them with a solid initial push for further poker action. The added bonus of re-entry was up for grabs prior to Level 7 start for up to 270 individuals willing to go above and beyond for the top positions on the official rank list of the event.

This was a single-day event, which offered players a fast-paced gaming action at Club Regent Casino. In addition to this event, the poker festival also offered satellite events for individual tables only, which guaranteed the winner of each table a sport at the upcoming CA $400 tournament, or the CA$1,100 Main Event. Said satellite events had mandatory buy-ins of CA$50 and CA120 and were able to welcome as many as 10 players per table.

Such satellite events allowed participants to get to know their rivals beforehand and be prepared in a way for what is to come at the actual poker event set to take place on the next day. Saturday was a special day, as it greenlighted the riveting CA$1,100 Main Event and the amazing opportunities it offered. Every entry resulted in a starting chip stack of 20,000, as well as a re-entry option.

Poker Festival Spans to April 28

This event’s cap reached 260 individuals ready to showcase their poker faces and go all the way to the top positions on the official leader board. In order to guarantee everyone a fair amount of gaming, it was a two-day event, allowing all survivors having reached Level 15 the chance to continue poker action on April 28, the last day of this festival.

For those who fail to meet the expectations and end up out of the culminating event, there were individual table satellite events for the CA$400 event scheduled for the final day of Spring 2019 PlayNow Poker Championship. The Final Day saw the CA$1,100 Main Event with its Final Table, as well as the last tournament with a mandatory entry fee of CA$400. This was the last chance of winning big for everyone interested.
