$250,000 Guaranteed Monolith Starts Thursday

7 of the 10 largest poker tournaments in northern California history have been our $425 DeepStack. Now this tournament has its own name - the Monolith - and it returns Thursday with the first of four starting flights and an expected starting field of near 1,000 total entries.

15,000 starting stacks, 30-minute levels for the first 20 levels, 40-minutes after that .. 12 percent of the field makes the money and 10 percent of each starting flight advances to Sunday's Day 2.

First Place receives a $1,650 #AnteUpWorlds Main Event seat as part of their prize package.

Players may enter once per flight, and have one available re-entry per flight also. This is a best-stack-forward tournament, so making the top 10 percent in one flight does not prevent you from playing a later flight and trying to end with a better chipstack for Day 2. Make Day 2 from more than 1 flight, and your smallest chipstack is cashed out as a Day 2 mincash.

Thursday's $100 Monolith satellites award seats to 1-in-5 entries at 1pm and 8pm. There is also a $55 1-in-10 satellite at 11am.
