Annie Duke’s Poker League releases Schedule

So what’s Annie Duke been up to ever since she left UB Poker and their 30% rakeback deals? She’s been busy helping the Federated Sports and Gaming league finalize their poker tournament schedule.

We finally got a glimpse of this schedule yesterday when Federated Sports and Gaming released it. The main points of the schedule is that it will feature four regular season tournaments, a $20,000 buy-in Main Event, none of the tournaments will charge rake, and all of the poker games will take place at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas.

The first tournament will run from August 12th-19th of this year. The event will offer a pro-am tournament, charity tourney and a Main Event from August 16th-19th. All of the other Federated Sports and Gaming events will also offer the same amount of tournaments. Here is a look at the 2011-2012 schedule:

Event #1: pro-am tournament runs from August 12th-15th, charity tournament on August 14th, and the Main Event runs from August 16th-19th.

Event #2: pro-am tournament from September 30th-October 3rd, charity tournament on October 2nd, and the Main Event is held from October 4th-7th.

Event #3: pro-am tournament from December 1st-5th, charity tournament on December 4th, and the Main Event takes place from December 6th-10th.

Event #4: pro-am tournament from January 20th-23rd, charity tournament on January 22nd, and the Main Event runs from January 24th-27th.

$1 Million Championship Freeroll: runs from January 29th-30th, and the top 27 players from the regular season get to play in this free poker tournament.

Annie Duke spoke about the Federated Sports and Gaming tournaments by saying, “Because the Main Events have four or more days to play down to a winner from a start of approximately 200 players, we believe it will offer the best, most friendly structures for the skilled player out there. Great structures, no rake, and generous overlays are integral to our celebration of the best live tournament players in the world.”

Unfortunately, not all poker tournaments are rake-free like the Federated Sports and Gaming league tourneys, so make sure you take advantage of rakeback offers to ensure that you’re paying the lowest amount of rake possible.
