HPO Satellite Tournaments

The HPO regional tournament is this month. Phone calls have started pouring in. People are signing up. It sounds like I might be a bit busy that weekend.

Still, the powers that be have decided to start running satellites for two of the events that weekend.

We will be running $45 satellites to get people into Saturday's $20k guarantee. For each satellite, payouts will be:
1st: $225 tournament entry
2nd: $85
3rd: $40

We will also be running $60 satellites to get people into Sunday's $40k guarantee. For each satellite, payouts will be:
1st: $335 tournament entry
2nd: $110
3rd: $60

Satellites will be held every day starting at noon and 8:00pm. At each start time, we will continue to run single table satellites until there are no more players.


Every Sunday, we plan to hold a mega-satellite also. They are unsure whether or not we will hold one this Sunday, but definitely on the 13th and 20th. Start time is uncertain as of this moment as well, but it will either be noon or 4:00pm.

Entry for the mega-satellites will be $75. For every 5 entries we get, we will award one entry to the $40k event on Sunday, the 25th.


For any of you interested in the $999 package deal - entry into all 3 tournaments, 2 nights at the hotel, $100 food credit - if you win one of the early tournaments, and thus win a seat into the next event, you will get cash value for the seat since you have already purchased a seat into all of the events.


  1. I was very interested in the $999 deal, but I won't be able to make it this year. A long trip from home, and I need to conserve what I have to be able to pay the democrats' new taxes. Maybe next year. Please keep posting poker room stories; they are very enjoyable. Any more thoughts about collecting all of these into a book?
