The Playground Poker Spring Classic is back for 2017 and it’s bigger and better than ever with two new major events presented under the partypoker LIVE banner including the partypoker Million North America - which boasts the largest prize pool guarantee in Canadian poker history!
The first partypoker LIVE event in North America is the Spring Classic kickoff tournament: the $200 + $20 Grand Prix Canada. With a $500,000 guaranteed prize pool, it’s by far the largest Event #1 in Playground Poker festival history, and with a $220 total buy-in, it offers players an incredible value.
The best part? Players don’t have to wait for the Spring Classic to play - the Grand Prix Canada has already begun! So far there are seven online Day 1s on the books with 27 players qualified for Day 2. There’s still plenty of time to join the event, though; there are another 10 scheduled Day 1s on partypoker plus 11 scheduled Live Day 1s beginning on April 25!
The second partypoker LIVE event in this year’s Spring Classic is the $5,000 + $300 partypoker Million North America with a massive $5,000,000 prize pool guarantee and a $1,000,000 guaranteed first-place payout!
Players may join the Million North America in one of three ways: directly buying in, winning a “traditional” satellite ticket, or winning a seat via a Phase 1 tournament. The Phase 1 system is an important poker tournament innovation.
Players who win a Phase 1 tournament not only qualify to play in Day 1 of the Million North America, they carry their finishing stack with them. Most players will tend toward the chip average at the end of a Phase 1 - 1M tournament chips - but players may end up with less - or a lot more!
Phase 1s (and a full range of feeder tournaments) are running now live and on partypoker. Satellites into Day 1 are also running weekly on partypoker every Sunday. Direct buy-in is available now on partypoker and at the cashier at Playground Poker Club.
In addition to the partypoker LIVE events, the Playground Poker Spring Classic consists of seven other side events, including a $2,300 + $200 Two-Day Second Chance event and the return of the massive $500 + $100 + $500 50/50 Bounty tournament. Every event in the Spring Classic has a prize pool guarantee.
