Day 1a of the Main Event starts today
In half an hour from now at 6 p.m. local time, the Casino Royale is calling all poker players from Sint Maarten and visitors from near and far for the first starting day of the flagship event of the 2017 TK Poker Tour Caribbean. Day 1a of the $1,150 Main Event kicks off and will play up to 11 levels of 40 minutes each.
A single re-entry is possible and the registration remains open until the cards get back in the air for level 12 on Day 2. There have been two $175 Satellites for this event already, and both of them attracted more than 30 participants, triggering four Main Event tickets each.
Another such Satellite will take place today and tomorrow as of 9 p.m. local time and similar numbers are expected. The Main Event itself boasts a guaranteed prize pool of $75,000, but this number may very well be eclipsed. The full structure sheet can be found here.
