Kicking of the Capital Region Classic

The inaugural Capital Region Classic $100,000 Guaranteed tournament is set to kick off here at Rivers Casino and Resort in the Event Center. The players have taken their seats and the cards are just about to go in the air.

It is a $260 buy-in event and the players will receive 25,000 in tournament chips. There will be a total of eight starting flights and registration, late entry and re-entry (unlimited re-entries) will remain open until the start of level 15. Day 1 levels 1-12 will be 30 minutes each and Day levels 13+ will be 40 minutes each. Players will still be able to buy in on Day 2 for the first two levels but if they wish to do that the buy in will be $1,100 and they will receive a starting stack of 100,000 tournament chips.

Any Day 1 flight will come to and end immediately after level 12 or if 12% of the field is reached. Breaks of 10 minutes will be after levels 3,6 and 9. All late entries and re-entries will receive a full chip stack and this is a best stack forward event. We should be in for an action packed day and night of poker and we will bring you all of the live updates throughout here on the Rivers Casino and Resort poker blog.
