Get romantic at Hippodrome's Winter Classic
So, you saw the dates for the PokerStars Live at the Hippodrome Winter Classic and thought, "Damn, I'd love to play a £25,000 guaranteed tournament for only £250, but that's Valentine's Day weekend. I can't leave Jimmy/Helen/Lazarus at home alone that night!"
I hear you. I once bought roses off a guy at a poker game because I was playing on Valentine's Day.
But wait! The people at PokerStars Live get it! They get it so you can get romantic!
How about this? On the Saturday the 14th, play will stop at 6:40pm and won't begin again until 2pm the next day. So, you know, anything you might want to do in those intervening hours that could keep you awake way too late, go at it. Lazarus will thank you.
So, now that we have all that worked out, here are the important details.
Day 1a kicks off on February 13. Day 1b is on February 14. The tourney will finish the next day. For £250, you get 25,000 chips, 30-minute levels, and the opportunity to re-enter once. The tourney guarantees £25,0000 in prize money.
Nothing says romance like bagging up chips! And just think what you can buy your sweetheart if you bink the Winter Classic?
So, make your plans today. And Happy Valentine's Day!
