there's really not alot of information yet,
they didnt mention if the format is NLHE or not.
no blinds structure nor no. of starting chips.
seems interesting though.

blinds structured i can't remember but 15mins level
but bear in mind the winnings is non-negotiable warrant..
meaning u can't convert to cash...but to casino chips where u can use it for casino table games...

then remember you are guaranteed at least 96.6% of the winnings if you spread your bets on roulette to convert to cash.
