What If I Win More Than 1 Seat?
During the first half of the year, players can win two seats in order to use one in each championship. However, players cannot win more than 1 Seat into Each Championship and there is no cash out policy. Each additional seat is an entry or rebuy into the “Masters Tournament” held prior to each championship!
You are also welcome to hold on to your tokens for more online special events like our “High Roller” Events if you do not wish to play for Masters Seats.
The benefits to winning multiple seats are displayed in your profile and also listed below here:
You win your Choice of Championship! Either the $100,000 East Coast Championship or the $200,000 National Championship. Either way you are in once of the Largest Bar Poker Championships in America!
You win a seat into the other championship (that was not your first choice)
3+ SEATS – “MASTER’S TOURNAMENT”
You win a seat into the Master’s Tournament *NEW*.
This incredible tournament will be for a DAY 2 SEAT into the $100,000 East Coast Championship! You will get an average stack of 250,000, be immediately in the money on day 2, and get a bye past 90% of the field to play for the massive $100,000 payout!
Once players have won 3 seats during the time period of May 26 – October 6, 2019, the 3rd seat and beyond are converted into “Masters Tickets”. These masters tickets become buy-ins/rebuys into the Online Masters Tournament on October 13, 2018.
In this event, you will play against a very small field of players who have also achieved 3+ seats for a seat into Day 2 of the East Coast Championship!
