Multiple re-entry allowed before the close of registration

Best stack forward format:

  • Players that qualify to Day 2 from a previous Day 1 may re-enter a new Starting Day.
  • Players qualifying with multiple stacks to Day 2 will only play their largest stack. Other stacks will be removed from play.
  • Players are allowed to forfeit their stack before close of registration to re-enter.

Shot Clock Events:

  • The Shot Clock will be introduced once the event is down to 6 tables left in play after the close of registration.
  • The Shot Clock will begin with an initial 30-second count down.
  • Once a player exhausts the initial 30-second count down, that player will immediately owe a Time Bank button and will owe another one after each 60-second countdown expires.
  • The Shot Clock will be paused if the Dealer needs to count out a bet of multiple chips that have multiple denominations and stacks.
  • A player's hand will be killed immediately after the time on the Shot Clock has expired and the player is out of Time Bank buttons.

Number of Time Banks per type of Event

  • Main Event and Championships Event = 5 initial + 5 for Final 8 players
  • 2 Day High Rollers Events = 4 initial + 4 for Final 8 players
  • 2 Day and Single Day Events = 3 initial + 3 for Final 8 players
  • Turbos and Hyper Turbo Events = 2 initial + 2 for Final 8 players

* Additional Time Banks for the Final 9 does not apply for events that have 20 or less players.

Event Notes:

  • The "ANTE BB" format utilizes the ante first before big blind in the event the big blind cannot cover the full amount for the ANTE and BB.
  • The "ANTE BB" structure remains the same regardless number of the number of players at a table.
  • Side Events will play to the Final 8 players on Day 1 unless specified.
  • An event designed to finish in 2 days will become a 1 day event if the Final 8 Players are reached by 22:00.
  • The starting level for the Final 8 Players will be at a minimum average stack of 30 times the Big Blind. (not applicable to Turbo events).
