The PokerStars sponsored Canada Poker Cup live tournament series kicked off at Playground Poker Club in Kahnawake, just minutes from Montreal.
The first of twelve events is offering up a massive $100,000 guaranteed prize pool for a value $135 buy-in. There are four day 1 sessions with re-entries that are on the agenda Friday and Saturday, meaning if players are eliminated in the early session of each day, they don’t have to wait for the following day to buy back in to the event and this is great news for players.
$100,000 Prize Pool is a lot of money and a nice prequel to all the other events leading up to the $2,000,000 guaranteed prize pool in the $3,300 main event taking place on May 22nd. There are satellites every night to the main event online on PokerStars and live at Playground Poker Club for as little as a $110 buy-in with minimum 2 seats guaranteed to the main event guaranteed up for grabs.
