2011 Fallsview Poker Classic

The 2011 Fallsview Poker Classic will run January 6-11, 2011 at the Fallsview casino in Niagara Falls Ontario.  Once again there will be 3 events, a $1000 buyin, a $2500, and a $5000 buyin.  The 2010 Fallsview Poker Classic was pretty much dominated by poker pros Gavin Smith and Simon Charette. Satellites will begin October 25, 2010 in the form of winner take all single table sit n goes.  $120 buyin for the $1000 event, $275 for the $2500 event, and a $550 for the $5000 event.  There is also a $70 sub-satellite to qualify for the $550 main event sat.  New for 2011 there will also be super satellites. On January 5 at 4pm there is a super sat for the $1k event, Jan 7 for the $2,500 event, and Jan 9 for the $5,000 event.  Buyin amounts are the same as the single table sats.
