Poker action is plentiful in Las Vegas during the summer months. Players have access to the World Series of Poker at the Rio as well as quality poker tournaments at the ARIA. The Venetian has now announced their poker room is preparing for the DeepStack Extravaganza III. From May to July, the Venetian Poker Room will be home to nonstop gaming action, with 150 events taking place with $31 million in total prize money up for grabs.
The DeepStack Extravaganza III will take place from May 14th until July 29th, offering players 40 more events than the 2017 edition and an amazing $10 million more in prize money. The series will see the first few days of tournaments taking place at the Venetian and then events moving on to the Sands Hall G Convention Center. Events before May 26th will take place at the Venetian and after that date, events will be held at the convention area.
With so much total prize money up for grabs, there are events on the schedule that offer crazy value. On June 7th, players can begin to compete in the $400 NightStack which includes eight starting flights and offers $1 million in prize money.
On June 18th, players will be able to compete in the $1,600 Mid-States Poker Tour as part of the Extravaganza. The guarantee of this event is a whopping $3 million! Additional big-money events on the schedule includes the $1,100 Summer Saver I & II which has a $1 million guarantee as well as the $5,000 Card Player Poker Tour Event that features a $2 million guaranteed prize pool.
The schedule also includes satellites, so players can vie for seating in events for a much lower buy-in. The full schedule of events including satellites can be found at the Venetian website. The buy-in, prize pool and tournament structure info are included.
