Joe Hachem Deepstack Series Returns to Crown in March
Posted at 23:21 2011-02-17
Crown’s low buyin big value tournament festival – the Joe Hachem Deepstack Series is set to return to Crown for a sixth edition in March. The Joe Hachem Deepstack series prides itself on being a proving ground for future circuit talent who may not have the bankroll and budget to compete with the best at the big championship events just yet. The formula has proven a roaring success in the past as players have come out in numbers to support the various events on the schedule.
The March series will see a week jam-packed with low buy-in tournament action as nearly every day of the schedule comprises two championship events getting underway. In all there will be twelve championship events and a host of live satellites and cash game action to keep everyone in the game.
Not surprisingly for a novice buyin series, the schedule is dominated by No Limited Hold’em events, but Crown have kept the other game players in mind by scheduling a $320 8-Game tournament and a $240 Pot Limit Omaha tourney that will add a bit of variety to the card. There will also be a mixed Hold’em and Omaha teams event.
Of course those that prefer the two-card game (Hold’em, not Manilla) will be able to get in on a $340 Terminator Event, a $340 Six-Max tournament and a Hold’em Only Teams Event priced at just $200 to enter – among a host of other Hold’em events on the card.
The big attraction will be the Main Event priced at just $550 to enter and boasting a generous 20,000 chip start bank and 40 minute levels providing for plenty of play. This has to be one of the best structures for a tournament of its value anywhere in the world. The Main Event should once again put up a huge prize pool for the buyin size, thanks to the repechage format that will allow players to enter each of the day 1 flights should they be eliminated. There will be three day ones for the Main Event with a 7:10pm start for Day 1A on Thursday March 17, before 12:10pm starts on the Friday and Saturday. All of the Day One survivors will then reconvene on the Sunday to play out Day Two.
Overall the series looks to be an invaluable chance for recreational and low budget players to get some experience playing in championship style events.
