As if you needed another reason to play as much of the upcoming Summer Super Stack schedule as possible, Deerfoot Inn & Casino just added one you can’t refuse. The player who accumulates the best results across all 14 events will win a High Point Champion prize worth $5,000.
The 12-day series in the Calgary-based casino begins on Thursday, August 8, and runs until Monday, August 22. The 14 events include the $550 Mega Stack, a $330 H.O.S.E., a $250 heads-up tournament, a $220 team event, some Omaha and bounty tournaments, and more. Of course there’s also the headlining $1,500 Main Event with a guaranteed $200,000 prize pool.
Deerfoot will be using its formula to award points to every player in every event that finishes in the money. The player who finishes with the most points at the end of all 14 tournaments will become the High Point Champion and earn a prize package to World Poker Tour’s (WPT) stop in Montreal this coming November.
The package is worth $5,000 and will see the winner headed across the country to beautiful Montreal to play in the partypoker.net WPT Montreal $3,850 event which runs November 11-17, 2016, at the world-renowned Playground Poker Club.
Most importantly, this prize package is entirely donated by Deerfoot Inn & Casino and does not come out of any of the prize pools in the series.
Action kicks off on Thursday with the $550 Mega Stack with three starting flights in the two-day event. PokerNews Canada will be on site live reporting all of the action throughout that event as well as the $1,500 Main Event which runs August 19-22 with three-starting flights and one Day 2.
Head down to one of Calgary’s best poker destinations and play as much of this series as possible to try to become this year’s High Point Champion.
