Three Events to Watch: Stadium Series Grand Final, WPT 8-Max, Sunday Sale

Three Events to Watch

This weekend is huge if you’re an online poker tournament player with huge events taking place on almost every site. There’s so much value floating around that the title of this article could be Two Dozen Events to Watch but, alas, we’re going to touch on just a trio of must-play tournaments.

Stadium Series Reaches Grand Final

The PokerStars Stadium Series has seen some massive prizes awarded but those are set to be blown out of the water when the trio of Grand Finals shuffle up and deal on August 2.

Head to the PokerStars lobby and click the Stadium Series tab to find the remaining scheduled events. The Grand Finals are towards the bottom of the extensive list.

There’s a $55 buy-in Stadium Series Freezeout Grand Final with a cool $1 million guaranteed. You can jump into the $530 buy-in Medium edition and play for a share of a guaranteed $2 million, but the biggest is a $5,200 buy-in version with a gargantuan $5 million guaranteed.

All three Grand Finals take place over the course of three days because the structure is simply that good. For example, the $5,200 $5 million guaranteed Grand Final sees players sit down with 250,000 chips and play to a 20-minute clock (30-minutes after Level 15) that starts at 600/1,200/150a.

All Day 1s shuffle up and deal at 7:05 p.m. CEST on August 2 with Day 2 commencing at the same time on August 3. The third and final day also kicks off at 7:05 p.m. CEST on August 4.

Huge Value Awaits in the Sunday Sale Mega Deep at 888poker

888poker is running its popular Sunday Sale again this weekend meaning a handful of its biggest tournament are available to enter for half their usual prize. This makes the $100,000 Sunday Sale Mega Deep exceptional value because it only costs $55 to enter instead of the usual $109.

The $100,000 Sunday Mega Deep has a habit of overlaying even with its $109 full price so everything points towards 888poker having to make up a shortfall in the guarantee, which is great news for you as a player.

If playing in this tournament for only $55 isn’t good enough for you, what about winning your way into it from as little as $2.20? Check out the $100,000 Sunday Sale Mega Deep’s lobby for all the available satellites.
