Limited to 100 players, the $150 buy-in tournament will equal 4,000 starting units. There will be unlimited re-buys ($20 and $40) during the first three betting rounds and single re-buys at or below 2,000 units. There will also be double and single re-buys to players at zero units. After the re-buy period an add-on will be available to all players.

There will also be door prizes from Gulfstream Park, Christine Lee’s and The Village at Gulfstream Park. John Velazquez will also autograph the silks of his Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom.
