The internet calls this “Chicken Dance Day”. We call it Day 2 of SCOOP 2019.
So, while you perform your own rendition of the “Yeltsin Chicken Wing” in the comfort of your own home, allow us to explain how you can turn a few dollars today into a SCOOP fortune… from the comfort of your own home.
There are 14 tournaments on the SCOOP schedule for Tuesday. But if you’re looking for some instant gratification at the affordable end, look no further than this one:
SCOOP 11-L: $5.50 5-Card PLO [6-Max, Progressive KO], $20K Gtd: 16:45
You’ll find SCOOP 11-L has everything.
A buy-in that won’t pummel your bankroll with a heavy stick, and a guaranteed prize pool of $20,000. That means the top finishers could add something like three zeroes to that original five dollars.
It kicks off at 11:45 ET, or 16:45 UK.
That’s give everyone on the Eastern side of the Atlantic enough time to get home from work while late registration stays open.
If you’re on the other side, you’re going to need the afternoon off. Or a manageable dose of that, err… “336-hour virus” that’s been knocking around. Reassure your boss you should be fine about a week on Monday.
So play it, and then let us know on Twitter (@PokerStarsBlog) how you get on. Especially if, having clicked the link above for “how to play 5-Card PLO,” you figured “nah, I’ll figure it out”, and jumped right in.
And something to do while you wait
