a classic with a new twist

Join us for the $250,000 Stones Fall Classic—ten days of incredible poker action culminating in a $150,000 main event. This year we’ve upped the action with two new exciting events:

The Chip Amplifier with escalating buy-ins and starting chip stacks, allowing you to enter the tournament at any point during registration as a deep stack. The second new event, The Assassin's Bounty, allows you to trade in your collected bounties for additional tournament chips added to your stack.

Don’t miss the most exciting event in the region.

Assassins Bounty        

The Assassin's bounty is a new type of bounty tournament 

Players can choose to trade in a bounty that has been won (between hands) for 5 big blinds added to your stack or an additional 50% of your stack added to your stack (Max of 10 BB), whichever is more.

The value of the redeemed bounty will be added to the prize pool and distributed according to Stones payout structure. 

Once we are in the money all traded bounties will be added directly to 1st place. 

Bounties must be redeemed before the next hand starts, while a player still has chips. Bounties cannot be traded in once a player is felted.
