Print-icon
 

Caesars entranceThe success of the first installment of the Mega Stack at Caesars Palace this summer has inspired the poker room to run another version of the deep-stack tournament series, and it all kicks off in November.

Satellites begin on the first of the month, and the first of 18 preliminary events starts on Nov. 2. 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.
