The SIGA Poker Championship is back at Dakota Dunes Casino this October. Just outside of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority host their largest annual tournament.
The tournament room will start getting busy on the last day of September with the Satellite Frenzy where there will be $70 single-table satellites all evening.
The $660 Main Event will get underway at noon on October 1 and players will receive 30,000 chips and play through 30-minute levels. There will be reentry and late registration for two hours and play will continue until the end of Level 24 or at a final table of nine players on Day 1 before pausing for the night. Day 2 will resume at 4 p.m. on October 2 and play until the event concludes.
The winner of the Main Event will also receive a $10,000 seat to the 2017 World Series of Poker Main Event.
There will also be a $330 turbo event on October 2 that will begin at noon. With 20,000 starting chips and 15-minute levels, the tournament will conclude on the same day.
Last year’s SIGA Poker Champion was Mark Burke who came out above 393 opponents to collect $37,026 as well as the SIGA Champion’s bracelet.
PokerNews Canada will also be on site live reporting both days of the Main Event, keeping players and readers up to date on all of the big hands, tallest stacks, notable players, and photos from the tournament floor.
