Federated Sports + Gaming Releases Season One Schedule
February 17, 2022
Federated Sports + Gaming (FS+G), the new professional poker league helmed by industry movers Annie Duke and Jeffrey Pollack, has released more details on its first season, including a complete schedule of events.

This new schedule serves to give a better understanding of how this most recent attempt at a professionals only poker league may work, and interestingly enough, it appears much of its success could be dependent on amateurs.  Each of the four events on the season 1 schedule before the end of the year championship will- along with a charity event- be preceded by a $1,500 buy-in, Pro-Am tournament, rewarding the top nine finishers entry into that week’s main event.

The buy-ins for those nine qualifiers will then be withheld from the main event prize pools, but other than that, no rake will be taken from the 200 elite players invited to compete in these main events.

The end of season championship event, taking place at the end of January 2012, will be a million dollar freeroll open to the elite top 27 performing players of the season.

The complete FS+G Season One schedule is as follows:

Event #1
-Charity Event: August 14
-Pro-Am Tournament: August 12 - 15
-Main Event: August 16 - 19

Event #2
-Charity Event: October 2
-Pro-Am Tournament: September 30 - October 3
-Main Event: October 4 - 7

Event #3
-Charity Event: December 4
-Pro-Am Tournament: December 1- 5
-Main Event: December 6 - 10

Event #4
-Charity Event: January 22
-Pro-Am Tournament: January 20 - 23
-Main Event: January 24 - 27

All Season One FS+G events will be held at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“We are excited to host a series of amazing poker events,” said Palms owner George Maloof.  “No poker organization of its kind can compare to this professional league, and we look forward to celebrating its long term success.”
