Summer Slam Series Returning to Seneca Niagara

by | Published: Monday, July 21st, 2014

The annual Summer Slam series returns to Niagara Falls, New York later this week at the Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel. The seven-event series will run for just over one week from July 25 through August 3, with highlight events including a $600 Main Event which features a $100,000 guaranteed prize pool.

The Summer Slam kicks off this Friday with a $200 No-Limit Hold’em Turbo Deepstack at 11 AM. But the flagship event of the 10-day festival would have to be the $600 Main Event running from August 1-3.

Andy Spears took out the top spot in last year’s Summer Slam Main Event worth $23,000. Spears is expected to return to Seneca this year to retain his title along with recent Western New York Poker Challenge champion Nick Walker. Numerous other successful players from the Western New York region are also expected to be in attendance.

Brand new to the Summer Slam series this year is a $125 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em event which comes with a $50,000 prize pool. The tournament will begin with six separate starting flights across three days (July 28-30), with players who advance on Day 1 returning on July 31 to play for the champion title. Players are allowed to enter in more than one flight, with their largest finishing stack being taken forward to Day 2.
