- Starting chips : 20,000
- Blinds: start at 15/30 raise every 5 minutes (we anticipate the tournament will take around 2 hours if you win)
- No rebuys, no add-ons (once you lose, you’re out)
- We'll figure out payouts based on how many people join, but if 6 people join top 2 get paid, if 9 people join top 3 get paid, etc.
Important note: Once you join Poker Stars, you will get 35,000 “free” play-money chips. Every four hours, you can click on “Free Chips” on the top right of your screen for a free 15,000 chips. You can also elect to purchase 1 million fake chips for $2.99 (but this is not necessary to play your first tournament). This is important as you will need to use 20,000 fake chips to enter the tournament. That is the lowest entry fee we can set on Poker Stars.
Please feel free to reach out to myself or any of the other Board Members with any questions about the tournament or how to enter.
