Phased Tournaments

The Canadian Grand Prix is played in a phased format which offers multiple options of how and when to play.

What is a Phased tournament?

A phased tournament is a tournament which has multiple Day 1s or ‘phases’ where players can join in a selection of tournaments which vary in start time. A specific number of blind levels will be played in each Phase 1 tournament after which all remaining players will carry their stack forward to the Final Phase.

Players can enter as many Phase 1 tournaments as they like. Their biggest stack of all their Phase 1 tournaments played will be carried forward to the ‘Final Phase’ or ‘Day 2’.
