Season 2 Championship Tournament

It's Championship Week, and congratulations to the Top 8 players that will be competing Tuesday: HiRoller88, ravensfutbal, potnets, Biggfella, Arcturus, xICEPICKx. goateedude, and EJ89. Here are the tournament details:

Date: April 7
Time: 9pm EST

Tourney Name: MD DonkFest s2CH

NOTE: Due to the way PokerStars currently runs private tournaments we are unable to disable late registration or limit the players to 8. Because of this, the tournament will start on two tables until the late registration period ends. I tried to get this changed but could not; PokerStars has said they will consider adding this feature in the future.

As mentioned earlier, some changes were made to the Championship format to make it more competitive. There will now be bonus points for the top 3 tournament winners, along with a weighted bounty system.

Bonus points
There will be additional bonus points for finishing in the money in the Championship Tournament, as follows:

Place Bonus
1) 20 pts
2) 10 pts
3) 5 pts

There will be a bounty on everyone in the Championship, but it will be a weighted bounty based on the leaderboard going into the tourney, as follows:

Place Bounty
8 pts
2)ravensfutbal 7 pts
3)potnets 6 pts
4)Biggfella 5 pts
5)Arcturus 4 pts
6)xICEPICKx 3 pts
7)goateedude 2 pts
8)EJ89 1 pt

The tournament winner will keep his own bounty. There are a lot of points up for grabs in this tournament!

The league prize pool for Season 2 is $353. Three places will be paid based on overall league points for the season, as follows:

1st place - $176.50
2nd place - $105.90
3rd place - $70.60

Good luck everyone!

Yo, on top of the points that you mentioned above will there be points made on the actual game itself a la the points accumulated during the regular season?

Yes, points will be earned for the tournament itself just as in the regular season tournaments.
