Table Of Contents
Online poker tournament players are spoiled for choice right now with seemingly every site running massive tournaments that are packed to the rafters with value and added extras. PokerNews has looked through the various lobbies and hand-picked four tournaments you need to get involved with this weekend.
888poker Freezeout Series Main Events
The Freezeout Series concludes at 888poker this weekend with its massive Main Events. Its $200,000 guaranteed Main Event is a multi-day tournament with $109 buy-in Day 1s running three times per day right up to the Day 2 on June 29. You can’t buy into Day 2 direct, you must win your way in from a Day 1.
Two other Freezeout Main Events are scheduled for June 28. There’s a $5.50 buy-in with $10,000 guaranteed. This starts at 8:00 p.m. BST while a $33 buy-in with $40,000 waiting to be won shuffles up and deals an hour earlier at 7:00 p.m. BST.
Both these Main Events have satellites running right up to the target tournament kicking off. These start at a mere $0.50 for the $5.50 buy-in edition and only $3.30 for the $33 buy-in Main Event.
Win a $10,000 PP LIVE Passport
There’s not much live poker going on right now but it’s still worth your time winning a PP LIVE Passport at partypoker.
The weekly final takes place on Sunday at 10:00 p.m. CET and costs $1,050 to enter unless you’ve managed to win your way into it via a $109 PP LIVE Passport Semi Final. Each final guarantees 10x $10,000 WPT World Online Championships packages.
This is where the extra value comes because you can use this $10,000 passport to buy into the $10,300 Main Event and partypoker foots the bill for the $300 tournament fee, meaning you’ll be playing for a share of $10 million rake-free!
You can even win multiple passports and use the $10,000 passport to buy into any of the WPT World Online Championships side events and they’ll also be registration fee-free too!
Turn $100 Into a Share of $1 Million at GGPoker
The Global MILLION$ is a $1 million guaranteed tournament that costs $100 to enter. There are several Day 1s running each day of the week that feed into Sunday’s final where at least $1 million is paid out to those lucky and skilful enough to navigate their way into the money places.
It’s possible to win your $100 Global MILLION$ seat for only a $10 outlay thanks to the many satellites GGPoker runs. You can save even more money by entering T$ Builder tournaments and using your winnings from them to fund your $10 satellite.
If you’re feeling more flush, there’s a High Rollers Super MILLION$ event that will set you back $500 but has a whopping $2 million guaranteed to be won. Again, you can qualify for the $500 Day1s in satellites costing a 10th of the target tournament.
Last week’s champion was “MickeyM” of the United kingdom who padded their bankroll with $285,986.
Potentially Earn $9K Per Hour in the Sunday Supersonic
Poker players often discuss their hourly rate when it comes to talking about their winnings. One way to give your hourly rate a significant boost it to take down the PokerStars Sunday Supersonic.
This $215 buy-in event is played on six-handed tables and to a hyper-turbo blind structure that increases every three minutes. The tournament is played at a frantic pace, one that saw last week’s champion crowned in only two hours 24-minutes despite there being 636 entrants!
Parker “tonkaaaa” Talbot was that champion, the Canadian streamer padding his bankroll with $22,699. Talbot’s hourly rate for this tournament was in excess of $9,000, which isn’t bad work if you can get it!
Win your way into the $215 Sunday Supersonic via a $27 satellite if the buy-in is outside the constraints of your bankroll.
