The other trophy events players should watch out for include the $320 buy-in, $20K GTD Progressive KO (September 14), $535 buy-in, $25K GTD No-Limit Hold’em (September 18), $535 buy-in, $20K GTD Pot Limit Omaha (September 20), $535 buy-in, $30K GTD No-Limit Hold’em (September 22), and $215 buy-in, $15K GTD Final 7-Max No-Limit Hold’em.
Rake Refund for Early Birds
Registering early for any event on the schedule comes with extra perks, with early birds getting the chance to have their rakes refunded. To be eligible for the rebate, players must already be registered for the event when it begins. In doing so, the rake they paid upon registering will be returned to them. The refund will be reflected in their balance.
So if you are able to register early for all 14 trophy events, you’ll be competing rake-free. But be reminded that the early bird rebate only applies to cash registrations. That means those using tournament tickets or tournament dollars when entering events won’t qualify for the rebate.
