The Summer Champions Series of Tournaments saw an online poker first; unique starting chip stacks. This is wickedly cool (particularly for Makiman77) for several reasons as it rewards you for your good play and placings in the previous events, and gives you a comparative advantage come the final tournament. The starting stacks have been finalized and range from over 6000 to around 1200
Another wicked cool online poker first that the Tournament of Champions will introduce; an animated flash table. All month long you’ve been playing on the same old sandy beach table, and probably got bored of it. So we locked our designer away in a stingy little cell with only some coolaid and soggy bread for sustenance til he came up with a flash new table. This table will change over the course of the entire game, ending in a completely different final table.
For all of you who made the final 250, your player accounts have been credited with the coupons for the Tournament of Champions, and you can view you starting chip stacks here.
