The first event of the greatly anticipated Winter Super Stack in Calgary is drawing nigh. Event #1: $550 Mega Stack kicks off on Thursday, January 26, at Deerfoot Inn & Casino and will be followed by a packed schedule of 13 total tournaments across 12 days.
While the buy-ins for the events range from an incredibly affordable $220 to a still-reasonable $1,500 for the Main Event, Deerfoot Inn & Casino wants to give everyone a shot at a major tournament for even less financial risk. They are offering satellites all throughout the series.
The action gets off to an official start today, January 25, with two $200 Super Satellites. These award the top finishers tournament dollars rather than specific tournament tickets, so players can decide which events they want to spend their winnings on.
Later in the series, there are also Main Event Super Satellites for $220 which will fill the marquee $1,500 tournament with many more players, making them sure to hit their huge $250,000 guarantee.
Here’s a look at all of the opportunities for players to satellite their way into Winter Super Stack action:
|Jan. 25||2 p.m.||$180+$20||Super Satellite|
|7 p.m.||$180+$20||Super Satellite|
|Jan. 26||7 p.m.||$180+$20||Super Satellite|
|Jan. 30||7 p.m.||$200+$20||Main Event Super Satellite|
|Feb. 1||2 p.m.||$200+$20||Main Event Super Satellite|
|7 p.m.||$200+$20||Main Event Super Satellite|
|Feb. 2||7 p.m.||$200+$20||Main Event Super Satellite|
Players will be doing their best to play every event on offer with the juicy points race put on by the host venue. Deerfoot Inn & Casino will award the best player of the series a 2017 World Series of Poker Main Event seat worth $10,000 USD. Every in-the-money finish will contribute to the leaderboard.
PokerNews Canada will also be on site for Event #1 and the Main Event to live-report all of the action. We’ll see you there!
