Event 2 in the World Cup of Cards was a $200 + $20 Shootout with a 100 player cap. The event sold out before even starting, and ten 10-handed tables were formed. Players needed to win their table to move forward onto the final table, locking in a cash prize in the process.
Once the 10-handed final table was reached, the players decided to modify the payout structure, ensuring themselves a minimum cash of $1,500 each, all the while leaving some interest for the top 3 payouts. The winner was now set to take home $3,900 and the World Cup of Cards Champions Trophy.
