Someone help decipher this tournament info for me
From a local casino
$125 + $10 optional
$4,000 OR $6,000 in chips
20 min blinds
1. Is the buy in? I don't get the "$10 optional" though.
2. Means that it is guaranteed to pay $2,500 in prizes
3. Does this mean they decide the day of the tournament? Why?
Lines 4 and 5, I am assuming optional and 20 minute blinds go together but I really do not understand, does that mean there may or may not be blinds?(Which would make no sense) Or the blinds may be 10 minutes instead?
