The Card Player Poker Tour (CPPT) is going to make a return appearance at the Seneca Niagara Casino this fall. It is returning to the casino for its third consecutive year in November to offer the annual Fall Poker Classic, an eight-event series that has at least $370,000 in guarantees up for grabs.
The action kicks off on Friday, November 9, with a $300 buy-in NLHE tournament. It boasts a $100,000 guarantee and will have four starting flights, at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., on Friday and Saturday. Levels are 30 minutes and players will begin with 20,000 in chips.
As usual, the big attraction of the series will be the Main Event. It will be a $1,000 buy-in tournament with currently a $200,000 guaranteed prize pool ready to be divided. The first starting flight will be held on Thursday, November 15 at 3 p.m., with two more starting flights the following Friday and Saturday at 11 a.m. Those fortunate enough to make it to the final table will take their seats on Monday, November 19. The Main Event winner will not only take home a suitcase full of cash, but will also have his or her picture displayed on a future CPPT Magazine cover.
There will be a number of qualifiers to try and win entry into the Main Event. The $145 satellite tournaments will be held on October 20 and 27, and November 3 at 3 p.m., as well as every night from Sunday, November 11 to Wednesday, November 14. There will also be three more qualifiers on Friday, November 16 and a last-chance opportunity on Saturday, November 17.
If someone still needs a lower-priced option, there are some of those, as well. On October 19, 20, 26 and 27 and November 2 and 3 at 8 p.m., there will be $45 satellites with five guaranteed seats each of those nights.
There are several 120 NLHE tournaments on tap, all with guarantees of $10,000. If Omaha is the game of preference, a Pot-limit Omaha tournament with a $300 buy-in and a $15,000 guarantee is also thrown into the mix, scheduled for November 15. The series will be closed out by a $300 NLHE tourney with a guaranteed prize pool of $15,000.
