The Cage


Guard your chips and protect your stack because the blood is about to hit the felt.

We’ll pre-warn you. The Cage isn’t for the faint of heart, nor is it for those who are afraid to sweat. It’s for poker players who are passionate about winning and willing to do damage at the tables in ways most players only dream of.

Our weekly Cage event is BIGGER and BETTER than you ever imagined. So, we’re issuing the challenge to all poker warriors to enter and join the fight!

5 hours to dropkick your way to victory every Wednesday at 7:00pm ET

The Cage is a multi-table time-based cash game with a $1,000+50 buy-in (satellites are available). The tournament ends as soon as the clock hits 5 hours of play, regardless of how many players are left standing.

Your buy-in gets you 1,000 in chips and here’s the deal. Those chips have a real dollar value. At the end of the 5-hour tournament, we’ll convert your chip stack to real cash. So, if you’ve got 5,000 in chips left, we’ll load your account with $5,000 in cash.

The Cage Highlights

  • 5-hour cash game with multi-table tournament format
  • The Cage ends when the time is up, regardless of how many players are left standing
  • 6-max tables
