Chad Brown Florida Poker Tournament Starts Friday

The 1st Annual Chad Brown No Limit Texas Hold’em Championship starts on Friday, January 28th at the Orange Park Poker Room in North Florida.

The Poker Room at Orange Park Kennel Club will be hosting the 1st Annual Chad Brown No Limit Texas Hold ‘Em Championship this weekend. The event comes with a guaranteed prize pool of $50,000, making it an attractive option for some of the best players in the world.

Tournament organizers said they expect up to 120 players, two of whom will be Florida residents Chad Brown and his famous poker playing wife, Vanessa Russo.

Twenty-five percent of the field will be made up of the top poker players from around the country, the rest will be Florida residents who paid the $880 entrance fee, and other players who qualified in the satellite tournaments.

Day 1a of the tournament starts on Friday, January 29th at 1pm at Orange Park. Satellites to gain entrance will still be running on Friday at St. John’s for entrance to the Day 1b event, which will start on Saturday.

The tournament is set up to be a deep-stack event. Each player will begin with 20,000 in chips, and blinds will move up every hour. The buy-in is $880 for those who have not qualified through a satellite tournament, no re-buys will be available.

After the first four rounds of the tournament, players will have to ante for each hand. Players will color up after the eighth, fifteenth, and nineteenth rounds. Dinner breaks for players will be at around 5:15PM of each day’s events, and play on the first day will conclude at approximately 9:15PM.

Day Two will begin at 12PM on Sunday, and the final table will be played on Monday, February 1st. Although the guaranteed prize pool is $50,000, organizers are expecting that the final prize fund will grow much higher.
