Playground Kicks Off 2020 In World Cup Style
2020 has kicked off with a bang and players looking to really get their money’s worth would be well advised not to miss out on Playground Poker’s upcoming World Cup of Cards. The event gets underway on January 19th and will run all the way through February 5. 22 perfectly affordable tournaments with buy-ins positioned in the CA$110- to CA$1,100-range will be made available over the course of the allotted period and we can hardly think of a better launch to Playground’s 2020 tournaments season.

If the World Cup of Cards is a little out of the league of either your pocket or skill set, then be sure to try out Playground’s The Grand Prix Canada instead. This truly is one to beat and amp up any old budget, with buy-ins set at CA$220 a pop and a prize pool CA$500,000 strong. What with there being an additional 5 x online Day 1’s on partypoker thrown into this particular mix, it’s nearly impossible to come up with an excuse to not participate, especially considering that anyone who manages to make it past Day 1 won’t be leaving empty-handed. A total of 15 starting flights pretty much set the deal in gold.
For those looking to play a slightly smaller and perhaps more exclusive field, there’s always the Playground 1,000. The slightly spiked buy-in of CA$1,100 buy in for an event spanning 3 days will attract a more conservative playing field for sure. The guaranteed CA$400,000 prize pool makes this one to be worth every penny spent.
For those preferring to do their getting-in magic online, there will be 6 qualifier satellite events on the go, with the first one kicking off on January 27th. A measly CA$165 gets you in on the qualifier action to help sweeten the deal.
Doing Good Unto Others
Poker’s own are famously known for being big of heart and kind-hearted by nature. Which makes the fact that the World Cup of Cards comes issued standard with an opportunity to play in support of a great cause. Those interested in going all out on a selfless good deed may do so by entering the Strangers In The Night World Cup of Cards fundraiser.
100% of the CA$25 tournament fee collected from each participating player will be donated by Playground to 3 pre-selected charitable causes. They are: Friends for Mental Health, Lymphoma Canada and The Simple Plan Foundation. A buy-in of only CA$150 and the mentioned CA$25 tournament fee gets you in doing your bit for sick children and families in need.
