It may suck to miss out on playing the 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event, but the one benefit of not being in Las Vegas this time of year is that the online games are usually better. If you want proof, look no further than what PokerNews has on offer this weekend – over $50,000 guaranteed for $13.
This weekend we are hosting two major low-stakes tournaments with massive prize pools, certain overlays, and tiny buy-ins. And the best part is, they are open to everyone.
The PokerNews GIANT
Taking place Friday at 1900 GMT, the PokerNews GIANT on Poker770 could have the best overlay of the year. It has a $30,000 guarantee but is just a $2.20 rebuy tournament, which means there needs to be the equivalent of 15,000 rebuys, otherwise it is an overlay. Many of the players in this tournament won seats for free, so we are expecting a low number of rebuys.
To play, all you need is a Poker770 account. New players make sure you use our links and bonus code "PKRNEWSEN" when signing up to ensure eligibility in future PokerNews promotions and a 200% up to €1,400 bonus.
The PokerNews Main Event
Over on PokerStars this Sunday at 1400 EDT (2100 GMT), The PokerNews Main Event is an $11 freeze-out with $20,000 added to the prize pool. Not only is this one of the biggest added money tournaments you are likely to find, it is one of the deepest, with a 30,000 starting stack and blinds beginning at 50/100.
This tournament is open to all PokerStars players, no matter whether they signed up through PokerNews or not. The only way to play in this tournament is with the password, which will be released randomly during our World Series of Poker Main Event Live Reporting.
If you do not have a PokerStars account, make sure you do sign up through PokerNews and use marketing code “POKERNEWS.COM”. This will ensure your eligibility in any future PokerNews exclusive promotions, as well as getting you a 100% up to $600 deposit bonus.
