$1,100 buy-in event added to PokerStars Canada Cup at Playground Poker Club



With little more than a month remaining until the inaugural PokerStars Canada Cup May 16-28, 2014, Playground Poker Club has announced exciting additions to the schedule that give players even more reason to look forward to PokerStars’ first major live event in Canada!

EVENT 10: $1,000 + $100 NLHE Freezeout Originally a $300 + $30 NLHE Freezeout, Event 10 is now a $1,100 buy-in. Starting at 1 p.m. on Monday, May 26, the three-day event is an option for any player who busts the Main Event before Day 4 and wants a little more action. This addition to the schedule completes a trifecta of tournaments where players have the potential to cash-in big!

–         Event 4: $10,000 + $400 High Roller

–         Event 6: $3,000 + $300 Main Event ($2 million guaranteed prize pool)

–         Event 10: $1,000 + $100 NLHE Freezeout

There are also options for any bankroll with buy-ins starting at $150. The full schedule of events is available at PokerStars.com
