How to Win

Survive Day 1 and Get Paid!

All Day 1 Survivors receive a $600 cash payout (“Bag Bonus”) when play concludes for the day.

Survive Multiple Day 1’s and Get P-P-P-PAID!!!

Players will receive a $2,000 cash payout (“Multi-Bag Bonus”) for EACH additional Day 1 Survival, after their first Day 1 Survival.

Play in One or Multiple Day 1 Flights!

Each of the four Day 1 flights will conclude when 15% of the field remains. At that point, everyone will receive a $600 Bag Bonus (or $2,000 Multi-Bag Bonus), and advanced to Day 2. Players with multiple Day 1 finishes will carry their largest stack forward into Day 2. Day 2 will resume at the same Level/Time as the EARLIEST of all four Day 1 finishing times, and will play down to the winner.

Here’s an Example of How the Bag Bonuses and Day 2 Chip Stacks Work:

You play Day 1A and survive the day with 30,000 in chips. You will then receive a Bag Bonus of $600 in cash, and you are qualified for Day 2 with a 30,000 starting stack.

You can either come back on Day 2 and continue playing with 30,000 chips, OR you can play any additional subsequent Day 1 Flights in an attempt to earn additional $2,000 Multi-Bag Bonuses, AND have a larger Day 2 starting chip stack.

You decide to play in Day 1C, and once again you survive the day with 150,000 in chips. At the end of Day 1C, you get a $2,000 Multi-Bag Bonus, and your Day 2 starting stack has now increased to 150,000 (instead of 30,000)….and you’ve already pocketed $2,600 in prize money.

Again, you can now either come back on Day 2 and continue the tournament with 150,000 chips, or play Day 1D for another shot at a Multi-Bag Bonus and a larger Day 2 starting stack.

You play again in Day 1D, and you’re a Rockstar so you survive again, but with 75,000 in chips. At the end of Day 1D, you get ANOTHER $2,000 Multi-Bag Bonus, but your Day 2 starting stack is still 150,000, since that was your largest finishing stack in your multiple Day 1 survivals.

Now you show up for Day 2 with 150,000 chips on the table and $4,600 in winnings in your pocket. All the glory and bragging rights are still ahead, as you compete for a top spot, a huge trophy, and many thousands more in prize money.
