Horseshoe Cincinnati Hosts Inaugural Queen City Classic on March 13

by | Published: Thursday, February 20th, 2014

The Horseshoe Cincinnati casino will host the first annual Queen City Classic (QCC) from March 13-24. The 12-day poker series boasts a $500,000 in added prizes, a $260 buy-in $100,000 first-place guarantee opener, and a $1,500 Main Event.

The self-named Ohio tournament series is the first of its kind in the Buckeye State, so it should see a successful turnout. The series will kick off with a $260 re-entry event featuring a $500,000 guaranteed prize pool and six starting flights—each permitting unlimited re-entry.

Players who advance from the multiple starting flights, or “double qualifiers”, will earn themselves a $2,000 bonus. That means, a player could advance from all six starting flights, with $10,000 worth of bonuses, and still be in the running for the guaranteed six-figure prize.

The $1,500 Main Event will begin on March 21, and as in the re-entry event players are permitted unlimited re-entry.

There will also be a five-tournament bounty series at the QCC. Running nightly at 5 PM from the 18-22, each $200 event awards a $50 bounty bonus each time a player eliminates another opponent. At the end of the series, the top 54 players re-gather to complete in a $25,000 freeroll. These top players include: the five tournament winners, the top five players (excluding the winner) with the most bounty bonuses each night, and the top 24 total bounty leaders.

The final event the QCC will offer is a Turbo Series featuring 10 tournaments running daily at 2 PM from the 13-23. Each tournament is an independent event, but all are inclusive in the 11-tournament Turbo Series and count towards the series leaderboard. After the 11th event, the top ten players earn a share a $30,000 put up by Horseshoe Cincinnati itself. $10,000 of that goes to the top point scorer.
