Table Of Contents
Those of you who tuned into our pages earlier in the week will have seen the Value Town tournament we chose was the $55 buy-in WCOOP Low Main Event at PokerStars.
We decided to keep with the low buy-in tournaments for our Weekend Preview, so keep reading to discover a trio of value-packed low affordable tournaments for you to get your teeth into this weekend.
Turn $25 Into a Share of $100,000 Guaranteed
The GGMasters is one of the most popular tournaments on the GGPoker schedule. It’s $150 buy-in is out of the reach of large numbers of our readers, so we’re delighted to learn there’s a cut price version this weekend.
$25 GGMasters GGSOP Edition shuffles up and deals at 7:00 p.m. CEST on September 19 and has late registration available for three hours. Like it’s $150 big brother, this $25 affair is a freezeout tournament so make sure you choose your spots carefully.
Despite the low buy-in and freezeout format, GGPoker have slapped a $100,000 guarantee on the prize pool! Whether it reaches this lofty sum remains to be seen but there will be some juicy prizes that is certain.
There are plenty of $2.50 buy-in satellites running all weekend if you want to save even more money by winning your $25 GGMaster seat.
Become an 888Millions Champion For Only $22
The 888Millions festival is in full swing and the Mini Mega Deep is just one of many tournaments that caught our eye. This $22 buy-in event is a slimmed-down version of the $215 Sunday Mega Deep, one of the most popular events at 888poker.
Your $22 buys you 30,000 chips and you’ll play to 15-minutes levels starting at 125/250/30a. Should you dust off your stack within the first 200-minutes of the tournament, it’s possible to re-enter up to three times. Hopefully, you’ll go mega deep on your first bullet and get your hands on the lion’s share of the $15,000 that 888poker is guaranteeing to be won.
$50,000 Guaranteed in the WPT 7-Max Weekender
There’s a tournament with a difference taking place at partypoker this weekend, the WPT Micro 7-Max Weekender. Most tournaments play out on six, eight, or nine-handed tables but this one takes place on seven-handed tables!
There are a brace of starting flights for this $11 buy-in $50,000 guaranteed tournament. Both commence at 8:05 p.m. CEST with Day 1A being on September 18 and Day 1B on September 19.
All players sit down with 100,000 chips and play to an impressive blind structure that starts at 500/1,000/100a and increases every 15-minutes. The structure is that good that it wouldn’t look out of place being used for a tournament with a $1,050 entry cost.
Should you make it through either of the Day 1s, you need to be ready to go back into battle on September 20 at 8:05 p.m. CEST because that’s when Day 2 gets underway.
These awesome events show you don’t need to spend a lot to win big when playing online poker.
