Dan Bilzerian is a household name in poker circles mainly due to his over-the-top bikini-only pool parties. With Bilzerian being GGPoker’s brand ambassador, it was only a matter of time before a tournament named after him was released.
GGPoker launched the Dan Bilzerian Battle Royale on June 10 available to small-stakes players. The tournament has low buy-in levels as low as $0.25.
The tournament is No-limit Hold’em Progressive Bounty Sit & Go and has 3 levels. In addition, the tournament is designed to auto-start when 100 players buy in.
GGPoker: Tournament format
As mentioned earlier, the tournament has three distinct levels.
Level 1 is known as the rush zone.
It involves rotational play where players are moved to a new table after each hand. Level one continues perpetually until 50 players are eliminated or after the 15-minute limit lapses. If the latter happens, only the top 50 players, based on chip stacks, progress to the next level.
The second level is known as the shoot-out zone.
The fifty players who progress from Level one are divided into groups of five to form ten tables. The players on each table play until only one player is left. Similar to the first level, level two gameplay is timed. However, instead of the top players automatically qualifying to progress to the next level, the tournament gameplay changes to Flipout format after 15 minutes.
Flip out format involves all players moving all in until one player prevails.
The third and final level is known as the Final table.
All the final table participants are guaranteed to finish in the money. However, obviously, the first-place finisher gets the biggest slice of the prize pool. Unlike the former stages, the final table does not have a time limit. Players play to the last elimination where the Battle Royale champion is crowned.
It’s a no-brainer that the 1st place finisher takes the highest prize award. In this GGPoker, BR-themed tournament, first place, and second place finishers get 21.13% and 21.12% respectively.
The mini cash in this format amounts to 2.67% of the prize pool.
It is imperative to note that 5% of the buy-in goes to the rake.
