$500 GTD Groundhog Day Big Batch with 25,000 Chips

This Friday, February 2nd, is Groundhog Day and many will be watching a groundhog in Pennsylvania crawl out of its hole. But at Intertops and Juicy Stakes,  they'll be playing a Big Batch poker tournament.  The $500 GTD Groundhog Day Big Batch 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.”

Intertops Poker and Juicy Stakes Casino are hosting a $500 GTD Groundhog Day poker tournament on February 2, 2018.

“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, February 2nd, is a popular tradition in the United States 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 February 2nd means spring is on its way.

Whatever the forecast, a special tournament has been added to the schedule on February 2nd (February 3rd in Australia).
