All-New Midway Poker Tour Coming To Illinois
Players’ inability to play live in-person Poker on the felt has frustrated the industry and everyone in it no end. Which is why the upcoming launch of a brand-new Poker tour set to offer players endless amounts of Poker action along the way is the best news the industry has received in a very long time. And perhaps best of all – the proceeds of the Midway Poker Tour will be donated to a superb charitable cause.
Scheduled to hit the circuit early next month, the inaugural Midway Poker Tour will be played from 2 – 4 October at the Sheraton Suites Chicago Elk Grove. A phenomenal $100,000 in guaranteed prize money will be up for grabs by those opting in on playing superb quality Poker whilst supporting northern Illinois’ children in need.
About The Tour’s Format
According to the details released by the organisers of the exciting new event, the upcoming Midway Poker Tour will feature a buy-in of $1,100. The tour will include a total of two starting flights – one to be played on October 2, and the other to be played on October 3. Participants will all be awarded 30,000 in starting chips.
Day 1 levels will reportedly span 30 minutes, while Day 2 levels will rotate every 40 minutes. Day 1 will be divided into two separate day-long portions, namely Day 1A and 1B. The action will on both these days progress until such time as Level 20 has been reached. Those players who managed to make it through all of the required levels will be entered into Day 2’s proceedings on the felt, which day will also mark the final day of play, and the day on which the winner of the event will be crowned.
Live-Streamed Poker Action
Super exciting is that all of the Midway Poker Tour action will be live-streamed.
During the run-up to the official tournament starting time, those players arriving early to the proceedings will be at liberty to participate in cash games if they so choose, the organisers have said. And since the pre-registration period is already underway, players interested in participating in the inaugural edition of the tour can already sign up by paying a visit to the official Midway Poker Tour site and clicking on the pre-registration button.
Everyone interested in participating in the competition will be required to wear a face mask for the duration of the tour.
