Venetian and Caesars Palace Run Deep Stack Tourney Series
Both Run This Month
The latest trend in tournament poker is more starting chips, and two major poker rooms on the Las Vegas Strip are doing just that by running a deep stacked tournament series. At the start of the month, the Venetian began their latest edition of the Deep Stack Extravaganza, and Caesars Palace is running another Mega Stack series that premiered this summer.
The Deep Stack Extravaganza IV will consist of twenty-five no limit hold’em events with buy-ins ranging from $330* to $2,500. Starting chip counts for the $330 events are 12,000 (10,000 + 2,000 for $10 staff bonus) and the $540 and $1,060 events begin with 15,000 (12,500 + 2,500 for $10 staff bonus). Blind levels are 40-minutes long for the $330 buy-ins and one hour for the $540 and $1,060 buy-ins. The $2,500 final event is scheduled for Nov. 23 and features a 20,000 starting chip count (15,000 + 5,000 for $10 staff bonus). Blinds increase every 90 minutes in the main event.
Buy-ins range from $200 to $540, and players begin with lots of chips. For the no-limit hold’em events, the following are starting chip amounts: $225 = 10,000 (7,500 + 2,500 for $10 add-on), $330 = 12,500 (10,000 + 2,500 for $10 add-on), $540 = 15,000 (12,500 + 2,500 for $10 add-on). There is also a $200 buy-in pot-limit Omaha event and an Omaha eight-or-better event. Both start players with 2,500 chips with 2,500 more available for a $10 add-on. Blind levels are 50-minutes long for preliminary events.
The Mega Championship is a $1,060 buy-in event that runs Nov. 18-20. Players get 25,000 starting stacks, and blinds levels are an hour long. All tournaments begin at noon, with the exception of the two Omaha events, which start at 3 p.m.
