Default $60 million dollar winner take all tourney

link

uhm...wow...I wonder how they're funding this? Who gets in? Just a 1 day tourney...that's going to make it either a very quickly escalating structure, or not too much play.

discuss...

I doubt that it's even money that this happens.

The MANSIONPOKER.NET POKERDOME SERIES is slated to debut on Sunday, May 15, 2006 (11:00 PM-1:00AM local) on FSN owned-and-affiliated regional sports networks, and continues for 43 consecutive weeks. The series' multi-faceted tournaments originate inside a remarkable, high-tech soon-to-be-built arena called the "Pokerdome."

Awesome.

I say they do a freezeout format, 5/10 blinds. That will be quite a test of skill. Too bad it would take months.

edit: but just imagine those stacks of red!!!! holy cow!

Ivey is confirmed to play and they are trying to get Hachem (numbers are in Australian dollars). That could seriously dent the bankroll if sponsors aren't paying a lot of it.

How much could a sponsor seriously pay? You would think they would be better off spending less $$ for a super bowl commercial.

With a AUD $13.3m entry fee, that's the equivalent of over USD $10m.

As far as I know, to date the largest entry fee for a tournament was $400K in the first series of Poker Superstars.

This seems awfully pricey, even for sponsors.
