Best Stack Forward

Players can play multiple flights if they so desire. If a player bags multiple times, they will take their biggest chip stack forward into Sunday; the smaller chip stacks are forfeited. If a player gets multiple stacks thru, their smaller stacks will be exchanged for an entry into a future $150 Double Stack event of their choice. This bonus entry does not come out of the prize pool!
