We are happy to announce that after careful review of the overall player appreciation of the big blind ante during the WPT Montreal, Playground has decided to adopt it for all Playground daily tournaments and mini-series.
As a reminder, the big blind ante is a consolidated ante just like the button ante, except that it is asked from the player in the big blind position. For more information on the history and application of the big blind ante throughout the world, read The big blind ante makes its way to Playground!, a news piece that was published just before the WPT Montreal, announcing the application of this new rule during the festival.
Moving forward, the big blind ante will be in use in all of our tournaments. It will be halved in 2 cases only:
- For the whole duration of all 6-Max tournaments.
- When the field of any tournament drops to 6 players (or less) on the final table.
As always, please share your comments with your dealer or floor person. Player comments are what ensures that Playground delivers what players want.
Enjoy the tournaments!
