Introducing, the PokerStars Canada Cup, which is scheduled to run from May 16 to 28, 2014. The Main Event will be a five-day, $3,300 tournament with three starting flights featuring a next-day re-entry format and a huge $2 million guarantee.
In addition to the Main Event, the PokerStars Canada Cup will also include a $10,400 High Roller event and 10 other side events for a total of 12 events over 13 days.
Some of the other events in the PokerStars Canada Cup include the kickoff event, a $150 No-limit Hold’em Re-entry tournament with four entry flights and a $100,000 guaranteed prize pool; a $330 Pot-limit Omaha/No-limit Hold’em mixed event; and a two-day $550 Pot-limit Omaha Three Lives event. Rounding out the series are the ever-popular six-max and eight-max No-limit Hold’em formats plus a $300 Bounty event.
Less than twenty minutes outside of downtown Montreal, Playground Poker Club opened in late 2010 and has been hosting major international events since 2012. It holds the honour of being the largest poker room in Canada and, as such, Playground is well known throughout the poker world for attracting large fields and generating huge prize pools. While poker players always appreciate large prize pools, they also know that every aspect of the experience at Playground Poker is geared towards giving players an exceptional poker experience.
Events in the PokerStars Canada Cup will be held in the immense tournament hall. With a total capacity of over 500 players, the tournament hall features high-quality, newly-felted tables and premium seating to ensure players’ comfort even through the longest of events. Top tournament player Jeff Gross is a fan: “Playground has to be one of my favourite venues in the world to play cards. These guys have the formula down to a T.”
Playground Poker Club also offers players a range of services to keep them fueled while at the tables. Players can order a delicious table-side meal from the Rail Coal Fire Bistro at any time. Massage therapists are also available to help with the discomfort of a long poker session.
Playground Poker Club events are managed by a dedicated team of TDA-certified personnel and some of the industry’s most professional and knowledgeable dealers.
