Discuss the Fire & Ice $50,000 BJT event at Beau Rivage in Biloxi, MS.
I was told this is a one day tournament, on 28th. Play against the dealer ??? If anyone knows for sure, details appreciated.
I went by the host desk at the Beau when in town for the Palace tournament a couple of weeks ago and I was told that it is a one day tournament, heads up/accumulation, but to be sure I called and got the following information. Accordingly, I have made arrangements to play the Hard Rock on Saturday and the Beau on Sunday. Hope to see you there.
If you're not comped, entry (and she said there is a re-buy), are $100, Heads up, 15 Hands, Accumulation.
Registration 2:00 PM until 8:00 PM, Play starts at 3:00 PM
2nd thru 30th- All table play
9th thru 15th-$500
16th thru 30th-$100
How does heads up work?
Hey John. First, I'll say that I wouldn't be playing this heads up event if I wasn't already in Biloxi to play the Hard Rock the day before. I've only played one of these a few years back, at Gold Strike, so I will assume the Beau will be similar. I don't remember exactly what the starting bank is, but I think it was $10 k, possibly it was $25k, but I don't think that's important since all players start with the same. I think max bet was either $500 or $1000.
There was a bank of tables, maybe 6-8 of them. Each player 's round consists of playing the dealer heads up for 15 hands - It's an assembly line process and moves fast. At the end of all tournament play the top 30 players with the most chip value are the winners, counting down from highest.
I'm not sure but I think that if a player re-buys their highest chip value of ONE of the two rounds will be their "entry" into the summation of winners. I could be wrong but I don't think the buy-in & re-buy rounds would be totaled at the end.
I wish I could offer more clarity, but this will hopefully help some. Good luck!
I played this one last year think the rules are the same as the other tournament just short on the number of hands $10,000 max bet ,$20,000on last hand you'll get all the rebuys you want last year I had seven,,7 I say,,, thats $700.00 busted out on 6 think made $40,000 ..on one ,not in the running .will play this one but not all the rebuys
Thanks, I do not think that I will try that.
