The first-ever Crypto Series of Poker, Coin Poker’s clever cryptocurrency take on the big series’ events, is all set to launch this Sunday, May 27th – 10,000,000 CHP up for grabs (that’s roughly $1million at the going rate)  as well as a WSOP package for the lucky ultimate leaderboard winner, and 250,000 CHP to be won in the opening event alone, which is free to enter for new players.

With 17 tournaments spread across a full week from May 27th to June 3rd, there’s two events per day to have a go at, including the chance to take the head of Antanas ‘Tony G’ Guoga in the Main Event – a bounty of 200,000 CHP for whoever takes the legendary pro down.

Head of Poker Operations at CoinPoker, Paulius Mikaliunas, was naturally enthusiastic on the eve of the CSOP, stating:

“The Crypto Series of Poker is the first event of its kind, and as a cryptocurrency powered poker room we are exciting to match and exceed prize pools offered by mainstream poker events."


Just days after the launch of CoinPoker’s mobile app for Android, thousands have downloaded it in anticipation of the CSOP, and here’s a rundown of what’s on offer during the series:


Schedule

Sunday, May 27th, sees it all begin with an unlimited rebuy Turbo event with, as mentioned, free entry worth 250 CHP for newcomers to the site.

A mixture of Knockout, Re-buy, Deepstack and a ‘No-mercy bounty event make up the majority of the series – so something for everyone with buy-ins ranging from 250 CHP to 5000 CHP for the Main Event.


The Main Event

The flagship tournament on June 3rd features a 5k CHP buy-in with a staggering 2.5million CHP prizefund guaranteed, as well as the bounty for taking out Tony G as mentioned. If that doesn’t suit your bankroll, there’s a mini-version available…


Mini-Main Event

Not only is this one half the price to enter and taking place just hours before the biggie, there will be satellites running all day to give you a chance to win a share of the 1million CHP on offer, for just a fraction of the outlay.


The CSOP leaderboard 

As with all great series’, a leaderboard with a huge prize up top is a must, and CoinPoker’s version will see one lucky person grab the first of three WSOP Main Event packages on offer.

The top 50 in the series will be whittled down to just one, and they’ll be off to Vegas to mix it with the best of the rest at the Rio – a chance at glory awaiting.


Coin Poker’s CHP Currency

For those new to the burgeoning crypto-poker market, sites use their own coin token for playing with in tournaments and cash games, and CHP is the CoinPoker token, the site recently releasing an app that will ‘allow users to transfer and exchange Ethereum, one of the most popular cryptocurrencies on the market, for CHP tokens’.

The CoinPoker CSOP starts Sunday, May 27 at 16:00 EEST and to make sure you get in on the action visit the site here.
