Registration is now open for the largest event to ever hit Red Shores Racetrack & Casino at Charlottetown Driving Park. The Red Shores ‘Grand’ Poker Event kicks off August 26, 2017, featuring an $1,100 buy-in.
Each player in the ‘Grand’ event will start with 25,000 chips and play 45-minute blind levels. Day 1 will be played starting at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 26, playing 15 levels. The remaining players will return on Sunday, August 27 to play down to a winner.
The estimated prize pool is $100,000, based on a sold-out attendance of 100 entries. In the event the tournament does not sell out, re-entry will be permitted to anyone who busts within the first 13 levels. There will also be a waiting list created if any player not able to register before the event sells out wants to take the next available seat.
The brand new high stakes tournament is a much-needed addition to the maritime poker scene. In fact, Red Shores is the only venue in Atlantic Canada that seems to care about the players and the growing poker community.
Red Shores now has four major events each year while the other competing venues would rather focus on slot machines and table games.
Good luck to all players and especially Red Shores for hosting this great event.
