The Card Player Poker Tour (CPPT) is getting together with Derby Lane’s Pokerfest Series to put on a 10-event extravaganza that will have $320,000 in guaranteed prize money up for grabs.
Things get rolling with a $150 buy-in no-limit hold’em mega stack tournament with a $50,000 guarantee on September 28th. The action winds down on October 7th with a $250 buy-in mega stack event that features a $10,000 guarantee.
The $200,000 guaranteed Main Event will be the highlight of this 10-day event. This no-limit hold’em event with a $1,000 buy-in gets underway on October 4th.
Players will start with 30,000 chips but can opt to buy 20,000 more for just $30. If $1,000 is a little too much for your bankroll then you can also win a seat through single table satellites with a $110 buy-in or $125 buy-in main event satellites.
Players will also be able to compete for a seat at the main event in Derby Lane’s package qualifiers. For a $175 buy-in, players will take their shot at winning a package of event entries which includes the main event, the $350 monster stack, and October 7th’s $250 mega stack.
