2012 Edmonton Poker Classic Schedule, August 21st to September 2nd

0

The Edmonton Poker Classic is just around the corner at Casino ABS Edmonton (Argyll); once again set to deliver an action packed tournament series from August 21st to September 2nd.

Casino ABS major tournament series typically see $350,000-$400,000+ in combined prize-pools over their 4 events.  Their “Super Satellites” normally easily draw 120-200 players and 200-300 players in the multiple day $550 can be considered a fair estimate.  Expect triple digits (or very near) for the $1,650 Deep Stack; past series have seen the 200 entry mark cracked for Main Events on numerous occasions.

Those looking for some warm-up action this week-end (August 17th-19th) might also want to look to make Day 1b on Saturday at 4:00 PM of their $340 Monthly Double Day Deepstack; featuring 20,000 starting chips and the top 10% of each day advancing to Sunday’s finals.

Getting back to the 2012 Edmonton Poker Classic, as always, things start off with some cheaper avenues for players to participate in the events, beginning with a few days of Super Satellites:

I love the game but am far to social to take it seriously and sometimes give up a little to much information at the table because I enjoy discussing the game, so decided it was safest for my bankroll to take up writing about the game. That way I still get to meet the cool people and opinions on the game, but with a little less risk.
