Intertops, Juicy Stakes announce Big Batch tournament
26 January 2018
(PRESS RELEASE) -- While millions watch a groundhog in Pennsylvania crawl out of its hole on Groundhog Day, Intertops and Juicy Stakes
poker players will be playing a Big Batch poker tournament. The $500 GTD Groundhog Day Big Batch on 2 February has a starting stack of 25,000 chips.
"I like starting with a big stack like this," said one player. "You can play more aggressively than usual and try new strategies."
"What the heck is a groundhog anyway!?" laughed Intertops Poker
's manager. "Is this like some kind of burrowing pig? Or what?! Anyway, good excuse for another Friday night guaranteed!"
Groundhog Day, 2 February, is a popular tradition in the U.S. and Canada where warmer spring weather is often greatly anticipated. According to urban legend, if the groundhog known as Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow when he comes out of his burrow on that day, there will be six more weeks of winter. A cloudy day on 2 February means spring is on its way.
To celebrate this tradition, whatever the forecast, a special tournament has been added to the schedule on 2 February (3 February in Australia).
