Chalk one up for the working class punters! PokerStars announced a new tournament series that is specifically designed for working class poker enthusiasts. Everyday people grinding out a 9-to-5 job do not have to travel far or have to take time off from work to play in the new MEGASTACK series. Check out a post over at PokerStars Blog that explains everything in full detail.
Here's the gist… for only £175, players in the greater London area can get a full-blown high-end poker experience… and they do not have to worry about missing work or calling in sick to play in the MEGASTACK. The MEGASTACK series will be hosted over a weekend at PokerStars LIVE poker room at The Hippodrome Casino in London. The historic gambling location will play host to low-stakes poker lovers with three separate flights and a single re-entry per flight.
The first MEGASTACK will take place on Friday, April 7. The first flight takes place at noon on Friday and the second flight starts at 8pm. The third flight begins at noon on Saturday April 8. The entire tournament will conclude on Sunday. For specific details on the MEGASTACK at The Hippodrome, click here.
There's also other events too that weekend including a MEGASTACK Higher Roller affair for only £300. There's also a £100 buy-in event called the Cheap and Deep. It sounds like a cheesy skin flick from the Boogie Nights era, but it's really a great concept… 25,000 stack for only 100 quid. Not bad, eh?
You can qualify for MEGASTACK events online for a fraction of the buy-in. Check out the lobby on PokerStars and look for MEGASTACK events for satellites.
