Wsop School of Poker enters into a new and creative collaboration with Helix Poker “The Next Generation of Tournaments”.
Helix Poker brings uniqueness, equity, and MORE to players!
Helix Poker is a San Diego-based promotion and marketing organization specializing in bringing unique and fresh ideas to the sport of poker. With over 35 years of hands-on experience in the gaming of poker landscape, we are introducing a new concept of tournament play into poker rooms worldwide.
Helix Poker was created by players, for players!
Players complain about entering one-day tournaments late or re-entering after elimination and receiving a disproportionate chip stack for the same initial buy-in. Players receiving the same initial chip allotment regardless of entering the 1st or the 8th level creates an inequitable game. Chip Escal8tor presents the a solution for this disparity by designing a system wherein players receive an approximate average chip stack, regardless of what level they enter the tournament.
Escalate your chip stack, and elevate your game!™
Chip Escal8tor allows players of varied bankrolls to enter or re-enter one-day tournaments at different, ever-increasing levels for predetermined increasing entry amounts. The overridingly unique element of Chip Escal8tor is that it allows players to enter a tournament with approximately an average chip stack, on par with other players already on that level.
Helix Poker creates a larger prize pool for a very reasonable buy-in, and accommodates late arrivals and re-entries.
Chipping up is critical to players, and Chip Escal8tor provides this opportunity to them, as they know they will not be short-stacked when beginning play. The effect of Chip Escal8tor increases revenue to the poker room by increasing the field of players, thereby increasing the cash prize pool, and allowing more players to remain in a tournament longer.
Chip Escal8tor takes into consideration important factors for a successful tournament—including potential entries, prize pool, blind structure, and tournament duration. The Chip Escal8tor system is easily customizable to correspond with varying initial buy-in amounts and number of tables in a tournament. Chip escalation is determined by the approximation of a corresponding premium buy-in cost to a relative value of existing chip stacks.
