Qualifying for the quarterly casino tournament entry

 

Winners will be traveling to 1 of 3 casinos: The Rivers, Jack or The Meadows.  Tournament Director will pick the best structured payout for the last weekend of April 2019.  First Quarter 2019 points accumulation starts with tournaments on 1-10-19 and will last through March. 

 

The goal of this trip is to get at least one “giant winner”!!! I have faith that the players that play here are the best in our area. The Meadows has been hosting the Heartland Poker Tour- they air all final tables on TV. The Rivers has been getting WPT events with great payouts. Jack Casino has a great month-end tournament with 25k guaranteed deep stack.

 

$5 from every entry into a tournament is put into the prize pool. After the last tournament of the quarter, the Director will decide tournament to be attended. Top 60% of players of final determined number will automatically qualify. 20% will be drawn from tickets that are acquired throughout the quarter. 20% will be awarded from a Sit-n-Go of the next 32 players in points that did not automatically qualify.

 

Example- prize pool is $5040.  Decision is made to play in the Jack month-end tourney that has a $240 buy-in.

$5040 prize pool / $240 = 21 players given free entry

60% to players with top accumulated points =  top 13 players

20% are drawn from the tickets = 4 players

20% are entered from the 32-player Sit-n-Go tournament = 4 players

 

We will meet and travel together by carpool from the Knights of Columbus parking lot. You can opt to drive yourself.

 

This is meant to be a fun, challenging and enjoyable experience. Players that qualify in any way can choose a replacement player. Tournament Director will make final decisions on any unforeseen circumstances that are not listed above.

 

Good luck and as always, God bless.
