Card Player tour stops at Palm Beach Kennel Club

The Card Player Poker Tour began Thursday at the Palm Beach Kennel Club and the big event begins this week.

The final CPPT stop of 2013 will feature nine tournaments, ranging from a $345 no-limit hold’em $100,000 guarantee tournament, a $135 H.O.R.S.E and a $125 no-limit hold’em turbo among others.

The action will wrap up with a $125 no-limit hold’em with bounties tournament Dec. 15, but the focal point of the series will be the $1,120 no-limit hold’em $250,000 guarantee main event. Satellites for the main event will run throughout the series and will feature buy-ins ranging from $65 to $220.

The main event has Day 1A at noon on Friday, Day 1B on Saturday and continues through Monday.

An additional perk offered to players will be the chance to win up to $10,000 in a Player of the Series leaderboard race.

Points will be awarded based on an algorithm that factors in buy-in and field size for all players who play in any of the nine CPPT tournaments and satellites. The second-place finisher will receive $5,000, $3,000 will go to the third-place finisher, and the fourth-place player will take home $2,000. The fifth through tenth-place players will each receive $1,000.

One percent of the total prize pool from each tournament will be held as a contribution to the Player of the Series purse. All players will receive points just for playing in an event and players who finish in the top 10 percent of the field will receive additional points based on final position.
