(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Card Player Poker Tour has announced a second Florida stop for the second season of the tour, this time hitting Palm Beach Kennel Club Poker Room in West Palm Beach, Florida Dec. 5-16.
The nine-tournament series will be highlighted by the $1,100 no-limit hold’em main event to be held Dec. 13-16. The series will begin with a $345 no-limit hold’em $100,000 guarantee tournament Dec. 5 and conclude with a $125 no-limit hold’em with bounties tournament Dec. 15. Satellites to the main event will also be offered with buy-ins ranging from $65 to $220.
The Palm Beach Kennel Club will offer players additional incentives to play in the nine-tournament series in the form of a Player of the Series leaderboard. The top 10 players will split $26,000 upon the completion of the series with $10,000 going to the first place finisher.
Points will be awarded based on an algorithm that factors in buy-in and field size for all players who play in any of the nine CPPT tournaments and satellites. The second-place finisher will receive $5,000, $3,000 will go to the third-place finisher and the fourth-place player will take home $2,000. The fifth- through 10th-place players will each receive $1,000.
One percent of the total prizepool from each tournament will be held as a contribution to the Player of the Series. All players will receive points for playing in any event and players who finish in the top 10 percent of the field will receive additional points based on final position.
After Palm Beach Kennel Club, located in West Palm Beach, Florida, the tour will stop at Foxwoods Resort Casino & MGM Grand at Foxwoods in Mashantucket, Connecticut and Atlantis Casino Resort & Spa in Reno, Nevada. The tour will return to Florida in May 2014 for a stop at Jacksonville Greyhound Racing Park and Bestbet Poker Room in Jacksonville.
