Fallsview Poker Classic WPT 2020 - Who's In?

Thought I'd start a new thread for those playing in the FPC next week.

I'll start off - I drove to Niagara today to register for Day 1B of the $1,100 tournament (Monday). Went down with my better half to register and have lunch. Played a little craps while there and managed to raise $300 towards my buy-in! Let's hope the luck continues next week.

Just an FYI re the buy-in and rake. The website and brochures all advertise the $1,100 as being $950 + $150, implying $950 goes to the prize pool. Check your tournament buy-in receipt if you register and you'll notice that the buy-in (contribution to prize pool) is actually only $921.50, the administrative fee is $150 and there is a "player fee" of $28.50. In other words the rake is 16.2% of the $1,100, not 13.6% as you might have thought.

Edit: FYI, my registration shows me as "entry number 626", which I presume means there are at least 626 entries so far. Not sure if that means for Day 1B only or both Day 1's.

    Ok... ok..... I don’t want you to be all alone Brian.

    Didn’t really want to play this one but the fear of missing out got to me. Just registered for it. :fish:

    Glad you're going - misery loves company. Let me know what time you plan on going down and maybe we can have a coffee or something before the start. I imagine I'll head down a bit early to make sure I get there on time and find parking.

    It is not the NSOP. That is in October.
    It is the the FPC WPT '20 as stated in the thread title.

    $950 + $150
    $1,100 buy in
    $150 is admin fee.
    3% of the prizepool money is dealer grats. This is pretty much standard in all large tournaments.
    So....$921.50 to the prizepool, $150 admin fee amd $28.50 dealer tips.

    I see what you're saying and it's actually informative that the "dealer tips" are disclosed separately on the buy-in receipt. My point was that in all of the tournament material that I reviewed there was no clear disclosure of how the dealer tips were accounted for other than in one of the tournament FAQs. Now that I think about it I guess Vegas tournaments are no different - the 3% held back for dealer tips is probably withheld from the amount designated for the "prize pool" and not from the tournament admin fee. Good to know.

    Well, since I didn’t get through the satellite last night, I’ll probably be playing this one now.

    Not sure which day 1 at this point, but I’m thinking Sunday so i can rest on Monday if I make day 2.
  • i bought a ticket over the phone and its on my players card, do i need to pick it up at the CAGE first in main casino or can I just go directly to the tournament reg area with just my players card?
