Introducing the Playground Poker Montreal Festival: Over $1M in Guaranteed Prize Pools 0001

Playground Poker Club is celebrating the end of the summer break in style with the Playground Poker Montreal Festival, which will run from August 22 to September 3, 2014. The Main Event is a four-day, $1,100 buy-in event with three starting flights (next-day reentry) and a $1 million guarantee.

In addition to the Main Event, the Playground Poker Montreal Festival will get started with Playground’s trademark kickoff event, a $150 No-Limit Hold’em Reentry event with four starting flights and a $100,000 guarantee.

Other events at the Playground Poker Montreal Festival include a $550 No-Limit Hold’em Deepstack event, which will run over three days, and, to cap off the festivities, a $300 No-Limit Hold’em Bounty event that is sure to pack the tournament hall. The side-event schedule also includes smaller buy-in events during the day and night, so the festival has something for everyone from the first-timer to the hardcore pro.

Something new to Playground Poker is Thursday’s "Satellite Day." On August 28 alone, there will be three satellites in a row: an $80 reentry at noon, a $110 turbo reentry at 4 p.m., and the huge $110 reentry “Eve of the Main Event” satellite at 8 p.m. with a whopping 20 seats guaranteed. All times are local.

Satellites to this event have already been a huge success with approximately 200 seats in the Main Event awarded. With at least 50 seats guaranteed to be awarded between now and Day 1a, the Main Event will fill the equivalent of a good-sized starting flight just with satellite winners.
