The DeepStacks Poker Tour has officially released it’s full Calgary schedule, set to take place at the Grey Eagle Resort & Casino from September 20th-28th with 9 events on the schedule.
Since January, when we first broke the news of DSPT’s Canadian debut stop plans, the decision has been made to DOUBLE the original Main Event guarantee of $100k to $200,000, adding a lot more incentive for players to check out the recently opened hotel and first poker tournament series to be scheduled for the casino’s new state of the art event centre.
Highlights sure to be well received by players include: a unique 50/50 format satellite where half the field will receive entry to a $550 No Limit Hold’em that boasts 25,000 starting chips, a recipe that is sure to give an already popular medium buy-in level opportunity to attract a massive field, a good selection of lower buy-in deep-stacked NLHE and Pot Limit Hold’em events to ensure every bankroll has a chance to participate that include bounty & turbo formats, and finally an $1,100 Main Event with possibly the largest starting stack Canadian players have been offered in recent years, (definitely at the medium limit levels), to go hand in hand with a generous structure that includes the often elusive 250/500 and 2500/5000 levels in it’s 40 minute increments.
Throw in antes, the $200k prize-pool guarantee and GPI points to “keep things real” and this is true to it’s name – some must play, Deep-Stacked poker at an attainable buy-in that no player will want miss.
Commitments have also been given by high stakes cash game TV personality, 4 time WSOP bracelet & NBC Heads Up winner Mike “The Mouth” Matusow to attend, Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi who’s many poker accomplishments have consistent kept him amongst the Top 10 players world wide on the All Time Money list year after year, as well as WSOPE bracelet winner Tristan Wade, considered by many to be one of the best emerging training instructors on the live circuit today, with more than $1.1 million in tournament winnings already.
