The Cage is a time based poker tournament where players play for an allotted amount of time and at the finishing players leave with what they have at the time instead of a tournament where players cash at a certain point. The Structure for The Live Cage is:
Players start with 5,000 in tournament chips.
3 hours Blind Levels.
30 minute break every level.
No late registration.
No Re-entry allowed.
Day 1 -> 2 Levels
Day 2 -> 2 Levels
Level 1 with $10 / $20 blinds and $5 ante
Level 2 with $25 / $50 blinds and $5 ante
Level 3 with $40 / $80 blinds and $10 ante
Level 4 with $50 / $100 blinds and $10 ante
Players’ antes are paid by the button player. This format speeds up the overall play.
There will also be a double buy option where prize pools increase substantially. Before the tournament starts, a player can buy an extra entry for $5250 and have more chips to redeem if necessary. If it’s not used throughout the tournament, it gets refunded.
