Get an extra CAD $220 free!

Qualify via any Live or Online Phase 1 before 4th September and get your CAD $220 buy-in back, even if you qualified via satellite! This means that if you progress from a Phase 1 you are effectively freerolling the main event for a share of CAD $2,000,000!

This is added money and is not deducted from the overall prizepool.
