South Point is advertising a $300,000 free roll poker tournament. To qualify you need to play 100 hours of live poker by the end of November.

If there's an average take of about $10 per player per hour your seat in the free roll will cost you about $1000.

Qualifiers get $200 cash which lowers the cost to $800.

First prize is $40,000.

”Take”? Don’t you mean “Rake”?

Regardless, if you normally play 100 hours in two months, but elsewhere of at multiple locations, shifting your action to the SP isn’t a bad idea. Heck, even just for that $200 it’s not a bad deal.

    Yes. Autospell did me in. Rake is the correct word.

    If you're a regular poker player getting the entry to the free roll is a nice perk.

    But I wouldn't play 100 hours to "earn" a seat if I wasn't a regular customer.

    The math I'd use is 1. How many will qualify for the free roll? 2. What is my skill advantage/disadvantage in that field? Using $200 as a reduction of the cost assumes you will never cash in the free roll. If there are 500 players who qualify, an average player gets $600 of value; I'd hope that I was better than average, or I wouldn't be playing in the first place.

    Anybody putting in a hundred hours for a freeroll tournament probably also thinks they are above average. Something like this will actually attract some good low-limit poker players. Unlikely you'll have any touristy fish to feast on.
