ChipMeUp continues to offer poker players and fans alike the chance to take part in some of poker’s best events, at a fraction of the buy-in. Led by a share-purchase listing put up by PokerNews’ own Tony G, ChipMeUp also promises to have auction listings available for many of the big names already slated to take part in this weekend’s $25K Heads-Up World Championship at Full Tilt Poker. The $25K heads-up tourney has quickly established itself as one of the online poker world’s most prestigious events.
This year’s tourney will begin at 3:00 pm ET on Saturday, and feature a likely field of 64 players, though as many as 128 are possible. Byes, distributed at random, may be introduced due to the presence of late satellite qualifiers to the event. Among the 41 entrants already listed as of Friday afternoon are Tony G, Tom “durrrr” Dwan, Justin “Boosted J” Smith, Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond, Jason “pr1nnyraid” Rosenkrantz, Dani “Ansky451” Stern, Aaron “aejones” Jones, Emil “whitelime” Patel, Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies, Luke “__FullFlush1__” Schwartz and a large contingent of the famed Full Tilt “red pros” – Andy Bloch, Brian Townsend, David Benefield, David Pham, David Singer, Erick Lindgren, Gus Hansen, John Juanda, Phil Ivey, Rafe Furst, Scott Montgomery and Toto Leonidas. The field will play down to the semifinals on Saturday, with the final four players returning on Sunday to decide the title and winnings.
Tony G’s new listing at ChipMeUp for the event offers 40 shares of his $25,000 buy-in for a cumulative 20% of his action in the event. Each share is worth 0.5% each of Tony’s performance in the event, and each share is priced at $125. The 40 shares are likely to be snapped up fast, so check their availability and status by clicking here.
