The Royal Series of Poker (Série Royale de Poker) is back at the Montreal Casino on May 10 and 11. From time-to-time, this series, which ordinarily has a buy-in of $1,100, will have a $2500 buy-in and an estimated prize pool of $230,000 based on a maximum capacity of 100 players. The previous $2,500 event reached a prize pool of $212,000 with $95,000 of that going to the winner.
In addition to the cash prizes for the event, the Montreal Casino will be awarding to WSOP Side Event Packages valued at $3,000 each for the top 2 finishers.
The blind levels will be 45 minutes long and the tournament will allow for alternates.
The casino will be running $350 buy-in super satellites on April 25, May 2 and 9 with the possibility of adding others as well. There may also be the possibility of qualifying online on EspaceJeux.com.
