The Cage is unlike any cash game in online poker history. Players who register for the $5,000+$100 cash game will enter The Cage with 5,000 in starting chips. Each chip has a real dollar value. Players will fight to stay alive and will emerge from The Cage once the 3-hour clock hits zero or by busting out.
While The Cage is considered a cash game, the structure will be familiar to tournament players. The Cage features 3 levels:
• Hour one with $10/$20 blinds and $2 antes
• Hour two with $25/$50 blinds and $5 antes
• Hour three with $50/$100 blinds and $10 antes
Upon the conclusion of the 3 hours, players will emerge from The Cage and win the value of their chip stack. For example, a player who has 50,000 left in chips when the clock hits 0:00 will win $50,000 as soon as the cash game concludes.
The buy-in for The Cage is $5,000+$100 but qualifiers for the multi-table cash game are available at Americas Cardroom from as low as $1.50. The event is scheduled at 8:00pm EST on October 8th.
