Niagara Series of Poker Coming to Fallsview Casino
The WSOP may be entering the home stretch with the Main Event about to begin on Wednesday, but players in Southern Ontario can begin gearing up for the newly announced NSOP – Niagara Series of Poker!
Fallsview Casino will host the new series in the Grand Hall from October 24th to 29th, with satellites and super satellites beginning July 1st at the Casino Niagara poker room.
The NSOP will be comparable in size to the hugely successful WPT Fallsview series, with an $1,100 3-day event, a $1,500 1-day turbo and a $3,000 3-day main event on the schedule, along with 3 $550 1-day turbos.
Single table satellites will be available daily on demand, with super satellites for both the main event and the $1,100 scheduled roughly every couple of weeks on Wednesdays and Fridays throughout the summer.
If the NSOP draws anywhere near as well as it’s annual winter cousin, it will be a must play event. WPT Fallsview is one of the hottest stops on the WPT schedule with players from not just Southern Ontario, but across Canada coming out.
This past February, the $5,000 main event drew a record 602 entrants with Toronto’s Demo Kiriopoulos taking home the $517,424 1st prize. The incredibly popular $1,100 preliminary event garnered a massive $1.4m+ prizepool, with Michael Farrow of Rockwood, ON claiming $243,765 for the win.
With those satellites running for almost 4 months before the event itself, you can expect more huge fields and crazy amounts of money to be paid out.
Further information on structures and FAQ’s for both the tournaments and satellites are available on the Casino Niagara website.
