TonyBet Quickly Moves To Sponsor Power Weekend in Montreal from March 9th – 14th



Following hot on the heels of the successful Winter Festival, Tonybet has quickly moved to sponsor a new mini-series at Playground Poker Club, Montreal, running from March 9th – 14th. The Tonybet Power Weekend features a four day one flight re-entry $100,000 guaranteed event and tournaments in Mix Max, Freezeout, Tag Team, Pineapple and 6-Max Bounty formats. 

A Tonybet spokesman said: “All guarantees were hit during the recent Tonybet Winter Festival and we are delighted to sponsor another mini tournament series in just a few weeks. Notice the addition of Pineapple at Playground! In this case it is hold’em but watch this space in the near future for the introduction of Open Face Chinese to Canada’s leading poker room.”

The Tonybet Power Weekend $135+$15 NLH re-entry $100,000 guaranteed NLH Main Event features four day ones. Day 1A is Wednesday March 9th at 7pm EST, with subsequent day ones up until Friday 11th. On Friday 11th as well as a flight at 7pm there is also one earlier at 11am. To make things even more attractive for players, the current Bad Beat Jackpot at Playground Poker Club is over CAD$590,000!

Earlier this month, 28-year-old Jiachen (Jack) Gong made the sure the inaugural C$1,100 Tonybet Winter Festival Main Event title stayed in Montreal by scooping first place and the CAD$100,000 first prize in an event that attracted 520 entries and a total prize pool of CAD $504,400 at Playground Poker Club.
