An Additional $300,000 in Tickets Must Be Won
The tournament needs 100,000 players to buy in if it is to reach the ambitious $5 million guarantee. Such a large crowd means there will be a lot of entrants going home empty-handed. Except they will not leave with nothing to show for their efforts because anyone who does not cash (using their first bullet) is entered into a prize draw on December 7 where $300,000 worth of Winter Series tickets await!
PokerNews will share more details about the Winter Series soon, so stay tuned.
Do Not Miss The Big 20 Finale
The Big 20 Finale is a must-play for recreational and professional poker players alike. It only costs $55 to enter but comes with a whopping $5 million guaranteed prize pool. That equates to 100,000 entrants required to hit that seven-figure sum.
Buying in sees you sit down with 15,000 chips and play to a 20-minute clock where the blinds start at 35/70/8a. The clock reduces to 14 minutes after the conclusion of the 18th level, which happens to be the end of Day 1.
Day 2 kicks off at 6:10 p.m. GMT on December 6 and ends when only 72 players remain. Those 72 survivors return to the PokerStars virtual felt at 6:05 p.m. GMT on December 7 and play down to a champion. That champion is likely to pick up a score of $300,000 to $400,000!
Late registration is open for 24 hours after the 6:05 p.m. GMT start time on December 5, and you can make unlimited re-entries during that time. With this in mind, it is worth hitting the satellites to try and bank a few bullets for this incredible event.
Satellites from a mere $0.55 are in the PokerStars lobby right now – there are more than 240 satellites showing at the time of writing – so you have plenty of opportunities to lock in some $55 seats.
