Cage Live - March 16th - 19th Recap
The first ever nosebleed stakes cash game in time-based tournament has drawn to its exciting conclusion and our inaugural Cage Live Event was a huge success.

Congratulations to Stanley Lee who was our big winner, taking home a total of $19,875 for finishing atop of the field.

A special thank-you to our online qualifiers who came to visit us from far and wide after qualifying for their $8,000 package in the Beast and Sit & Crush $55 buy-in Sunday night qualifiers.
Their trip down to our backyard gave us the rare opportunity to showcase our offices during a player tour we gave on Friday, and take them for a night on the town in the Party Bus on Saturday night!
