The 6 event “Mini Series” series will have moderate buy-ins with multiple flights. Each flight will be limited to 50 players and you may pre-register at the casino cage for any of the events. The Series kicks off with a $175 Green Chip Bounty on May 22nd and will culminate with a $300 Main Event beginning on May 24th. The Series will also feature an exciting Tag Team Event for a team of two to play. Additionally, added to the schedule is the popular Beat the Bosses tournament and a LIPS Ladies event that will be open to all ages over 21. The casino will be hosting mega satellites for seats two weeks prior to the event series.
“SPT is excited to come to Northern California at the Stars Casino. It’s about time the smaller card rooms take on a major tour series. Even though seating is limited, we know it’s going to be a tough field of players,” said Lupe Soto, SPT CEO. “We’re working on partnering with casinos of all sizes to highlight this segment of the poker world.”
“Also on the schedule are several tour stops with our growing partnership with the PPC Poker Tour. We have stops at PPC Casino Miami Poker Classic that begins June 1, the PPC Tour Dania Casino & Jai-Alai that begins June 4th and the PPC North American Championship SPT event that begins July 17th." Shares Hal Coblentz, SPT Vice President. "Our aggressive growth plan shows the popularity, originality and need of such events in this industry.” He added.
SPT is fresh off of the recent Las Vegas Classic Series that was held at the Stratosphere Casino. “Tommy Quads” Kougias of Las Vegas, NV was crowned the Main Event Champion after several hours of play.
