During the month of February, Foxwoods changed their tournament format to accomodate: Triple Play Tourneys. Here's what the flyer I got said:
The Triple Pay Poker Tournaments are a series of 3 separate bi-weekly events. However, if you win all 3 Triple Plays in the same week, you will recieve a paid buy-in and entry fee into the 2004 World Poker Finals $10,000 WPT No-Limit Championship event (scheduled for Nov. 2004). Foxwoods is also adding $1,000 to the prize pool of each Triple Play event. Seating is limited.
So, instead of the normal weekly tournaments at 7pm, they have been replaced with a $235 buy-in ($200 to pool, $35 entry fee) bi-weekly tourneys at 10am! Again if you win all three in one week, then you get a $10,000 seat at the World Poker Finals! All for an initial investment of $705. The catch? You have to win three straight tourneys in one week.
Mondays: Limit Hold'em
Tuesdays: No-Limit Hold'em
Wednesdays: 7-card Stud
That seems almost impossible... and maybe that's why Foxwoods is holding this event. I will not be trying to win that seat because I'd rather save my money for the Act I, II, or III satellites later this summer. But it's tempting to sit in on one of the No-Limit Hold'em events!!
They will be holding the Triple Plays on Feb. 9, 10, 11 and 23, 24, 25.
