But wait… there's more!
The PCA just announced they will be hosting a blackjack tournament with a $100,000 guarantee. This special blackjack event has a $500 buy-in and will take place at January 8th at 2pm local time. The tournament field will be capped at 216.
The tournament is a shootout style event. In the opening round, players are seated at 6-handed tables where they are dealt 15 hands. The player with the most chips win the table and advances to the next round. The second round will have six 6-handed tables, and the third and final round is a final table of six players.
This special tournament is a great way to get a cheap seat into the Main Event. It's essentially a satellite for $500, but catering to blackjack enthusiasts.
