Posted at 08:00 2012-06-28 by Barry Gallagher
Have you got $50 to spare? If you fancy a chance of transforming that into a more sizeable sum The Crown Casino in Melbourne is the place to be this weekend. The Melbourne venue is putting up a $50,000 guarantee for the paltry $50 entrance fee.
The action will kick off Thursday 28 June at 6.10pm. The tournament is interestingly structured with a whopping five Day 1 flights. Players can play any or all of the flights, regardless of whether they bust or not, in a format the Crown calls Repechage Accumulator. If the player busts they can start over in the next available starting day. However, players can play again even if they make it through a previous flight and attempt to accumulate even more chips for Day 2.
The five starting flights will play out on Thursday evening, two on Friday with Flights 4 and 5 taking place on Saturday; giving plenty options for those on any schedule. Day 2 will be played on Sunday and begin at the crack of dawn for a poker player at 10.10am. But with such big money on the line it’s unlikely too many will sleep it out. A winner will be declared at the end of what is sure to be a long day at the tables.
Players will each receive a starting chip stack of 5,000 for their initial $50 investment; players also have the option to purchase one add-on of 10,000 chips for an additional $50 up until the first break. With the add-on included the poker will be deep-stacked and provides brilliant value for money. The blinds will begin at 25/50 and there will be 20 minute levels for the first six levels and then 30 minute levels after that.
Players will play 13-levels on each starting flight before bagging up their chips for Day 2. With the Friday and Saturday flights starting at 12.10pm the action in The Crown Poker Room will heat up early. Expect the legendary cash games at the casino to be in full flight this weekend with the tournament attracting a big crowd to the tables.
If you have been enviously following all the action in Las Vegas wishing you were part of the action get yourself down to the Crown this weekend for the big tournament atmosphere at an affordable price.
