The 2013 Fall Poker Classic will run from October 5 through October 20 in Shakopee, MN. Canterbury Park hosts this annual classic tournament series and there will be plenty of action for players at a variety of buy-in amounts. They have recently released the full schedule for the event.
Back is the $550 HORSE tournament. But, other than two straight up Omaha Hi-Lo (OH8) tournaments (one at a $230 buy-in and the other at $120) gone are all other tournaments that aren’t No-Limit Hold ’em. There’ll be no Stud, no straight Limit and no OH8/Limit combo tourneys that have been offered in recent years. You will get about 2 dozen NLHE choices ranging from $120 to the Main Event buy-in of $1100 and the three non-NLHE events listed above. Oh, for variety you do have a 6-Max NLHE tourney on 10/20.
There is also a Senior’s Event and a Ladies Event. For the latter, Canterbury has taken a page from the WSOP’s Ladies Event. For this event the buy-in is $120 for women, but men wanting to play will need to pony up a Main Event equivalent of $1100.
You can find the full schedule (and structure sheets once they’re available) here. You should find Karaoke Phil at the 10/09, Noon and 10/13, 6:30 pm OH8 tourneys – and, at the 10/13 HORSE tournament if he’s willing to pony up the $550 for it.
