The 2018 Playground Winter Festival Is Underway

The Playground Winter Festival is all set to start and the action is heating up for its 2018 Edition. The festival is taking place this year at the Playground Poker Club in Kahnawake; it is just outside of Montreal.  The festival is comprised of 17 events and it will continue for over 18 days, the festival of 2018 is certain to warm things up by offering the winning amount of over $1,000,000. This is the guaranteed prize pool and it is guaranteed between about 14th January to 31st of January.

The kickoff event of the festival – a $135 + $25 NL Hold’em Next-Day Re-entry is now open and boasts an impressive Guarantee of $100,000. The tournament is also a bonus to the community as the fee of $25 “rake” is not a normal one – this amount taken during the tournament will be given to local charitable initiatives as a donation.

The day one of the festival begins with a snowstorm and a record cold snap, however, the kickoff event has done a wonderful job – the festival has succeeded in beating the coldest part of winter away!

The cornerstone event in the winter festival is the playground 1000. On this weekend of the festival we will see the start of the next big event, the now-traditional $250 Frenzy. With a massive $200,000 Guarantee, the NL Hold’em event features 6 Day 1s and is as close as you can get in the world to Big Event Poker for just a $250 buy-in.

During the Winter Festival, the cornerstone event is the Playground 1000. This is an innovative $1,000 + $100 event and it will offer $500,000 Guaranteed prize pool. It features a starting stack of 100K and three Day 1s with one entry. More information about the event is available on the internet; you can find more details about the festival over there.
