How Tony G’s Birthday will be Celebrated
The Tony G PLO Birthday Tournament will be one of the biggest pot-limit Omaha events ever held in Europe with a €1,100 buy-in and a massive €200,000 guaranteed prize pool.
The tournament is a deep-stacked affair with players starting off with 50,000 in chips and blinds increasing every 30 minutes. The structure is deeper on the second and final day with blinds increasing every 40 minutes.
Players can re-enter up to two times until Level 13, which is the second level of Day 2.
To add to the fun, there will be a bounty on Tony G. The amount of the bounty will be determined at a later date.
While players can directly buy into the event, they can also opt to enter the tournament with partypoker LIVE dollars. In addition, there are four satellites with 40 seats guaranteed to the PLO Birthday Tournament running at King’s Casino where players can qualify into the event for a fraction of the cost.
