Dream Team Poker
word type: noun
- A unique poker tournament that pays out prizes based on both individual and team performance. The second annual event was held at Caesars Palace in 2009.
How it Works
To participate in the Dream Team Poker event, you must be part of a three-person team (the entry cost per team in 2009 was $1500+$150).
One portion of the prize pool is awarded in the same manner of a regular poker tournament, paying the highest percentage to the individual who performs the best.
The other portion of the prize pool is awarded to the team that has the lowest point score, which is determined by whichever two team members finish the highest (thus, 3 is the lowest possible team score).
