"Something to entertain and test our skills during the AFL bye weekend", you say?

"Something different from an everyday Holdem tournament", you say?

Enter...The Speculator!!!

In a first for Crown Poker, players will have the ability to cash multiple times - in the same tournament! Here's how it works:

  • Three Opening Flights: Thursday 31 August @ 610pm; Friday 1 September @ 610pm and Saturday 2 September @ 1210pm.
  • Players may play multiple Flights however can no longer enter once they successfully "bag" chips to Day 2.
  • Each Flight contains individual prizepool, and each Flight will play into the money. Surviving players at close of play can elect to "bag" chips and return Day 2 Sunday 3 September @ 1210pm, or forfeit their stack and receive next available cash payout (as per each individual prizepool).
  • All remaining prizemonies combined in Day 2 prizepool, with all Day 2 survivors receiving at least the same payout as any paid previously in Opening Flights.
  • Day 2 begins at earliest closing blind level of any Opening Flight.

The Speculator is the first Tournament ever offered at Crown Poker that could enable a player to cash multiple times! Imagine reaching the money in the first two Opening Flights, then navigating Flight 3 to eventually win the Event on Day 2!!!

Key information: $300 (250+50) entry, four hours late registration & re-entries to each Flight, 30-minute levels for Opening Flights, 40-minute levels Day 2...multiple ways to win!!!

Add the monthly $1100 Super Sunday Deepstack to the weekend (beginning 510pm), as well as a $250
(1in5) Super Sunday qualifier three hours prior, and there's simply too many reasons to not miss out on a weekend at Crown Poker!

Daily "Speculator" satellites ($75 entry - 1 in 5 win) commence Monday 28 August.
