b.c. poker championships (1.25 million prize pool)


Recommended Posts

Just wondering if any Canadians are planning to play in the BC Poker Championships coming up November 17. Last night I won a $270 single table satellite to win my buyin ($2500+$125). The even is going to be held at River Rock Casino, Vancouverr, BC.More info on the tourney:http://www.bclc.com/cm/casino/bcpokerchampionships.htmThe NL event is limited to 500 players, 1st taking $375,000. It's gonna be my first big buyin live tourney and hoping to do well.Good structure, 10,000 starting chips with 25/50 starting blinds. Wondering if any of you are gonna be playing, or know anything about the event?- Jimmy

Was a horriblle structure, 1500 starting chips, after the first hour blinds were 200/400, then 20 mins later 400/800. So you need to move quick, its horrible. Everyone but the guy I beat heads up sucked though. Big time.

Depends where you live & what casino you go to. The NL ones in Victoria run Wednesday & Saturday nights, 7pm. River Rock runs a couple daily, with 2 steps ($113 & $535 i think).Call the casino of your choice for a schedule of satellites though, no info is available online.

Isn't it at Canada Place or plaza of nations or something down there? River rock only has 27 or so tables, not enough for 500 players.
Their gonna have 2 shifts, morning & night, 250 players per shift, finals on sunday.

I've had my level 2 satellite ticket for the Pot limit tourney for more than a month, Im there like every second day. THis is Bullshit as far as im concerned. They dont run level 2 pot limit satellites ever.... And i asked what happens if they dont have one when im there before the event and they said the $ goes towards my buy-in...Guess what? i cant afford the buy-in thats why im playing satellites.. Jesus the rock can piss me off sometimes...PS: Anyone want to buy a level 2 satellite to the pot limit ??? lol

I heard from a dealer that they're going to have more tables in other parts of the casino so it will all be one shift

I had a level 2 satellite ticket to the NLHE event which I wasn't able to use and they just gave me my money back.
