Costing $100 to enter and boasting a $78,000 guarantee, the rebuy event will give players a chance to win their way to the CPP.

4th – 8th place wins a $6k lite package. This includes mini main event buy in ($1,100), nine nights at the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar for two people, $600 room credit and $2,000 expenses.

As well as personal gain, those who take part in the MTT will help raise money for the victims of Hurricane Dorian.
