The first annual PokerTurn Challenge sponsored by Poker Plex has sold out. Ever mindful of the need for quality over quantity, organisers and sponsors for the tournament took the decision last week to cap attendance at a manageable level.
Commenting on this, manager for Poker Plex, Michael Chambers said “We think it is important to ensure a memorable first event that is about the players. The low buy in of $500 has obviously been a key attraction for players, who are keen to maximise on this heavily overlaid Texas Hold’em competition, and the response has been amazing. We however had to draw the line somewhere. This does not mean though that the opportunity to play is over - for those players who are not able to play in the Tucson event this August, we are offering first refusal to play in the second Poker Plex sponsored PokerTurn Challenge to be held in Winnipeg, Canada in November, details of which can be found on our website.”
At the same time, Poker Plex has also revealed that Global Television is to provide full coverage of the finals table, a step that the online poker operator hopes will generate real returns for the players.
“The coverage will give real attention to real players of talent,” continued Chambers. “While it is always a pleasure to watch a real poker super pro in action, there are a number of exceptionally talented players who do not receive the coverage of their famous counterparts, so we are delighted to be able to give this kind of attention to real everyday players. And who knows – maybe the next star is about to be discovered!”
The sold out event takes place from August 17th to 21st at the Casino Del Sol, Arizona, bringing together over 500 players vying for an estimated prize pool of $400,000.
