Grey Eagle Resort & Casino is cementing its name in the record books with the announcement that the 2016 DeepStacks Poker Tour Championship Main Event will now have a $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool, the largest in Albertaâ€™s history.
Previously, the guarantee was a substantial $500,000, but by doubling it, the casino has moved this event into another stratosphere. â€śThis is an elite championship event and it deserved an elite championship guarantee,â€ť said Lee Athias, Grey Eagle Casino Manager.
â€śThis guarantee proves to poker players across North America that Grey Eagle Resort & Casino is the premier poker room in all of Western Canada.â€ť
The $2,500 buy-in DSPT Main Event runs from November 26 â€“ December 5. Tournament officials anticipate an even larger turnout than last yearâ€™s record-breaking DSPT Championship, which saw 567 entries and a $1.27M prize pool, earning a nomination for GPIâ€™s Event of the Year (buy-in up to $2000).
Adding to the championship festivities, Jason Somerville and his massively popular â€śRun It Upâ€ť livestream will be on site the entire week. Somerville will serve as the DSPT Championship ambassador, hosting the livestream broadcast of the final table exclusively on Runitup.tv, conducting special Q&As, meeting with fans, running on-site promotions, hosting two RIU events and doing his daily livestream on Twitch.tv.
