Double Up Sit-and-Go tournaments are one of the most popular poker formats available today, and they are about to get a lot more popular thanks to the new promotions PokerNews and William Hill are holding together.
The $10,000 Double Up Sit-and-Go Madness promotion will begin on Nov. 30 and run through to Jan. 10, 2013, during which time there will be $10,000 in cash up for grabs. As the name suggests, the promotion revolves around the Double Up Sit-and-Go tournaments that William Hill hosts and will see PokerNews players play for $10,000 in prizes. Play Double Up Sit-and-Gos, earn points depending on your finishing position, win prizes. It is as simple as that.
Double Up Sit-and-Gos are a great way to build a bankroll without exposing your bankroll too much. This is because exactly half of the field receives twice the buy-in back, while the other half receives nothing. In a four-handed game the top two players are paid; in a six-handed game the top three places are paid; and in a ten-handed game, the top five finishers are paid out. Compare this to a standard sit-and-go where generally only a third of players receive prize money and you see why variance is dramatically cut.
The $10,000 Double Up Sit-and-Go Madness promotion is only open to players who sign up to William Hill through PokerNews. This means that the number of competitors will be reduced as you will not be competing against the entire iPoker Network, just your fellow PokerNews players. All Double Up Sit-and-Go tournaments are valid for this promotion that is four-, six- and ten-handed variants. Leaderboard points will be awarded at the following rates.
|No. of players||Finishing Position||Points||No. of players||Finishing Position||Points|
|4 Players||1st||5||10 Players||1st||10|
As you can see, you do not even have to finish in the money to pick up precious leaderboard points, making this promotion even more attractive! As we know, points make prizes, and this is how the $10,000 prize money will be distributed.
The $10,000 Double Up Sit-and-Go Madness promotion could be just what you need to get your poker career off the ground and to start 2013 with a substantial bankroll.
