Former WPT Player of the Year Gavin Smith will return to the Sarasota Kennel Club on Nov. 26-29 to play in One-Eyed Jacks’ Pros vs. Joes tournament series. The “Gavin Smith Invitational” will be four no-limit hold’em tournaments, including a main event at 1 p.m. on Nov. 28 that will have a $790 buy-in and $50K guaranteed for first place. Smaller events and satellites will lead up to the main event, plus there will be a $330 second-chance tournament on Nov. 29.
Smith is no stranger to the series as he played in the first-ever Pros vs. Joes event in December 2007.
In each of the four events there will be a knockout bounty on Smith, which has yet to be determined. Only 150 seats will be sold for the 250-player max main event because the other 100 seats will be earned through satellites.
The two tournaments leading up to the main event will be a $250 buy-in on Nov. 26 at 6:30 p.m. ($25K prize pool guaranteed) and a $150 event ($20K prize pool guaranteed) on Thanksgiving at 5 p.m.
Satellites and registration for the tournaments begin Oct. 17. For more information please see One-Eyed Jacks’ ad on the back cover of our November issue.
