The 2016 DeepStacks Poker Tour Championship Main Event will now have a $1,000,000 GTD prize pool!
This Main Event hosted by Grey Eagle Resort & Casino will be the largest in Alberta’s history.
“This is an elite championship event and it deserved an elite championship guarantee,” said Lee Athias, Grey Eagle Casino Manager. “This guarantee proves to poker players across North America that Grey Eagle Resort & Casino is the premier poker room in all of Western Canada.”
The $2,500 buy-in DSPT Main Event runs from November 26 – December 5. Tournament officials anticipate an even larger turnout than last year’s record-breaking DSPT Championship, which saw 567 entries and a $1.27M prize pool, earning a nomination for GPI’s Event of the Year (buy-in up to $2000).
“Grey Eagle has proven time and again to be great Championship hosts and even better partners,” said DeepStacks President Chris Torina. “We are extremely excited to offer the largest single-event guaranteed prize pool in Alberta history, and we look forward to continuing to make the DSPT Championship one of the best events of the year.”
