On February 28 Las Vegas’ Bellagio will run a $25,000 high-roller tournament that will be done in a single day. It’s the third time this year they have offered the high buy-in turbo with 30 minute levels and 30k starting stack. For those that can afford it, it’s the ultimate get rich quick plan.
In fact in the previous two events, only 11 people have opted in. Sorel Mizzi won over $149k in the first tournament, Cary Katz the took down the second for $176k and former WSOP November Niner Joseph Cheong came runner up in both.
The Bellagio has limited their juice to a mere .015% for each runner (so roughly $375 per entry) and if there is not a game running already, the final table will be held in Bobby’s Room.
