Everything is a little crazier in Florida. That includes poker.
For the second-to-last stop of Season XII of the World Poker Tour, the WPT returns to the scene of last year’s insane 10 million guarantee to put on, what is likely to be, another massive tournament.
This time the guarantee is cut in half, $5 million, but there’s some extra incentive to #RunItUp. In a Bay 101 style twist, both the chip leader and 2nd in chips on each of the three starting days will win a nice cash bonus ($5k for chipleader, $2.5k for the guy/girl right behind him).
Florida has a booming poker business and with re-entries being permitted for this event and a (relatively) manageable $3500 buy-in the action is likely to be fast and loose. There are three starting days with re-entry and the Final Table will be played out on Wednesday March 16.
Day 1a gets underway at 12:00 noon EST and live updates will, of course, be available from the World Poker Tour website.
