The players get very excited here when we have a major event. It creates a lot of buzz and we run tons of satellites. Our players want to be a part of the global poker market and they like the feeling that the town of Jacksonville in north Florida is now among the global poker market by having the Card Player Poker Tour and other major events.
The series will feature fourteen tournaments and the main event will be the $1,500 no-limit hold’em tournament that comes with a $300,000 guarantee. The main event is scheduled to take place on the 6th of September at 12 noon and will run on a daily basis, giving players the opportunity to book at seat at the table at a much lower buy in price.
There are also a number of satellite main events that have a buy in price of $185 and will be available till the 6th of September. Some of the other popular tournaments include H.O.R.S.E., no-limit hold’em turbo, Omaha eight or better and bounty tournaments.
The tour will also feature 2 tournaments are scheduled to take place after the main event is completed. The first is a innovative $240 no-limit hold’em all in or fold with $50 bounties that takes place on the 7th of September at 3 pm and a $240 no-limit hold’em which comes with $50 bounties and will take place on the 8th of September at 3 pm.
Hollander went on to say that
Day 1 of any multi-day event is always the least attended. People always go for the last day so we have a promotion to encourage people to play day 1a. We will have a drawing for one of every ten people in the field. We have event number one with a $100,000 guarantee and we hope to double it. We also hope to double the main event guarantee and get about 500 plus players in total. That would make it more than a $500,000 prize pool.
