The PokerGuru Tour (PGT) will return for its penultimate edition of Season 2 from 25-28 October onboard the floating Casino Royale card room. Moving away from its previous formats, PGT October will allow re-entries in its INR 5,000. Day 2 will see a lowered buy-in of INR 7,000 for the bounty event followed by an slightly increased buy-in of INR 30,000 for the Main Event. The weekend ends with Sunday Night's Highroller, a 6-max tournament with buy-in of INR 66,000 (as compared to INR 50,000 from previous editions). The PGT events, will as usual be completely rake free giving out at least 100 percent payouts along with guarantees for all events as well as silver trophies to all winners and a special prize to the Highroller champion.
Despite being against the re-entry format, PokerGuru director Aditya Agarwal believes the higher turnouts in the 5k event justify the proposed change which will provide even more value to players, making for bigger prizepools and therefore better ROI once re-entries are incorporated. The increase in buy-ins for the Main Event and Highroller is keeping in mind what they want to eventually offer to the Indian tournament crowd, said Agarwal.
Here's the schedule for the upcoming edition:-
|Oct. 25||9:00pm||5k Re-Entry|
|Oct. 25||9:00pm||7k Bounty|
|Oct. 25||9:00pm||30k Main Event|
