Player Notes

*Main Event tournament guarantee include Main Event entry tickets (for the Final Table players). Places 1-5 will receive entry tickets to the ME Day 1A that will be held in 12th of August 2023 during Merit Retro tournament series.

*All tournaments are held in the unlimited re-entry format and will start as soon as 15 players are registered

*8% inclusive of any taxes and staff funds will be withheld from the entire prize pool of all the re-entry and Bounty tournaments. All Satellite tournaments fees are reduced to 4%

*Day 1A and 1B are independent separate days subject to registration fee. If a player busted during any of these days, he can make unlimited re-entries without paying the fee during the same day only

*For the players who have played several entry days 1A and 1B the biggest stack will be chosen to bring to Day 2

*During the Hand for Hand situation, if enough players bust on the current hand at the different tables to get into the money, the busting players will evenly share the place paid on the current hand. When two players bust at the same time at the same table, the player with more chips gets the higher position

*If two first to be paid ITM players seated at the different tables bust simultaneously, the payout for these two places will be split evenly between them. If such two players bust with an interval of more than 5 seconds, their places will be paid according to the payout structure

*Satellite tickets are non-transferable, and can only be used by the player who won the seat

*Satellite tickets must be used on the day 1A they were issued for, regardless of the player’s tournament status. Unused satellite tickets from day 1A cannot be used to proceed directly into Day 1B or Day 2

*If a player has several satellite tickets to use on the same tournament day, he must use them for re-entry during that day if busted. In case the player is still active in that day with 1 or more unused tickets remaining by the end of the tournament day, the player can use the remaining ticket(s) buy-in amount for any other event of his choice (entry or re-entry). This amount cannot be cashed out. Registration to the tournament must be closed for the player to claim the unused satellite ticket(s) buy-in amount towards another event
