Starting chips - 10,000
Blinds up 30 mins per level.

can be consider a turbo structure
level 1 - 100/200
level 2 - 200/400
level 3 - 300/600
level 4 500/1000

Normally phase 1 end should at level 4 or beginning of level 5 leaving 50 players thru phase 2 (semi-f). Fight till last man standing.

New comers or starters should head up to genting to try or experience this poker tournament, reason is simple, buy in is low and come with a free night stay. The negative point, once busted out, you can only go play bacarrat or 21.

Hi - Genting's is definitely a player v player tournament, right?

The pic on their brochure shows the player v house texas holdem bonus game. I don't really know how you would have a tournament like that but they do have baccarat and roulette tournaments there.

Assuming its normal poker, I'll be in.
