This is the Metro’s second big poker festival of the year with the Main Event prize pool a cool million larger than last time. This only means one thing, big wads of cash to the champion!
The METRO SUMMER EVENT PHP 3 MILLION GUARANTEED is a six-day event running from April 11 – 16, 2018. There are four starting days to choose from which should give everyone enough time and chances to advance to the next round. This is followed by Day 2 then the Final Day.
Buy-in: P6,000 with one re-entry allowed per starting day
Day 1A – Today, April 11
Day 1B – Thursday, April 12
Day 1C – Friday, April 13
Day 1D – Saturday, April 14
Day 2 – Sunday, April 15
Final Day – Monday, April 16
All starting flights will play a total of 15 levels with blinds increasing every 30 minutes. Day 2 and the Final Day will see the blinds increase every 40 minutes. Late registration closes at the start of Level 8. Players may attempt for multiple stacks however only the largest stack will move forward.
Of course players are always on the lookout for cheaper prices so for this event we have one satellite for you scheduled on Friday, April 13 at 8pm. Buy-in is P1,200.
For a quick look back, last year’s Summer Event winner was well-known Filipino player Mark Pagsuyuin. We hope to see him back at the felt defending his title. Another Filipino player we’d also like to see is Rommel Angeles, the recent Metro 2M champion. Angeles is pacing well this year. He already has 7 cashes matching his record high set in 2016.
In addition to the main feature, there are also several side event titles up for grabs. The first one is the Power Button event underway at 8pm tonight. Buy-in is P2,200 with two re-entries allowed.
The subsequent days will see other games on the floor, the NLHE Turbo, Mixed Game NLHE/PLO, Big Bounty, and Deep Stack Turbo 200K Guaranteed. All of these events offer great competitive action and are perfect after a long day’s work. All events take place in the evening.
