Playground Poker Spring Classic Survivor Event Awards 16 Winners
Outwit, outplay and outlast: terms synonymous with poker.
While Survivor was airing on network television Wednesday evening, Playground Poker Club had players casting each other off their own island.
Event #4 of the Playground Poker Spring Classic present by partypoker LIVE, the $330 NL Hold’em Survivor, kicked off at 7 p.m. local time in Kahnawake attracting a field of 169 entries.
The structure for the Survivor is simple; outlast 90 percent of the field and you make the money. Once down to 10 percent remaining, the event ends and all the finalists receive an equal share of the prize pool.
Sammy Chao bagged the biggest stack of the 27 players who held chips when the clock was paused. Chao built an impressive stack of 3,149,000 to put himself in fantastic shape going into Day 1, holding almost three times what the average stack will be. Chao also has the biggest stack of any of the Phase 1 qualifiers thus far.
Another headline event gets underway on Thursday as Day 1 of the $10,300 partypoker LIVE High Roller begins at 1 p.m., boasting a guarantee of $500,000. The final live Phase 1 will also take place on Thursday.
PokerNews will provide daily recaps throughout the festival along with live coverage of the High Roller and $5,000,000 guaranteed partypoker LIVE Million North America.
