First up is three days of play for the $1,150 ”Spring Super Stack” at DFIC, with 4 ”feeder” multi-table satellites at 12:00 & 7:00 on Wednesday, April 18th and Thursday the 19th, featuring an affordable $150 buy-in. Plenty of Sit N’ Goes will also be offered, with the cards in the air every time 10 players are ready to go.
The main event gets underway on Friday, April 20th at 12:00 PM, with players sitting down behind heaping 30,000 tournament chip starting stacks. One hour blind levels also give plenty of opportunity to stay in those chairs and pick the best spots. Players will however, still be able to keep their stamina intact, with 10 levels of play scheduled for Friday, 8 levels on Saturday and those fighting it out for the big money returning on Sunday to crown the events inaugural champion.
With plenty of $1/$2 spread, a popular daily $2/$5 and a regularly scheduled $5/$10 on Wednesdays and Fridays, No Limit Hold’em players will have plenty of action to choose from outside the SuperStack and it’a satellites. Dealers Choice and some of the best (and sometimes biggest) Pot Limit Omaha are also popular in Calgary; expect to find it if that’s what you are looking for. An attached hotel with another just across the street also ensures players can keep a wide open schedule to grind and enjoy the casinos night life.
For those not familiar with the venue, the Deerfoot Inn and Casino has played host to a long list of Alberta’s largest prize-pool events and are certainly no strangers to what players are looking for.
