The highlight of the festival is the five-day $1,650 PokerStars Festival Main Event, which features a huge $500,000 guaranteed prize pool.
The tournament kicks off with two opening days on May 23-24. Players begin with 25,000 opening chips with blinds increasing every 60 minutes. Both the opening days allow for unlimited reentries up until the start of Level 9.
Players bagging chips will resume play from May 25-27 until the first PokerStars Festival Main Event winner in Chile is crowned.
Another big tournament during the festival is the $3,300 High Roller. The tournament begins on May 21 and features a deep structure with players beginning with 50,000 chips and blinds increasing every 60 minutes.
