50/50 Series Returns To PokerStars From June 13-30

PokerStars 50/50 Series

The popular 50/50 Series returns to the online poker giant PokerStars from June 13 and runs though to June 30. Featuring 50 tournaments each costing only $50 to enter, the 50/50 Series is everyone's favourite budget online poker festival.

The latest 50/50 Series has events scheduled Monday through Thursday, leaving you with the weekend free from the poker grind, if you wish. Mondays see five events shuffle up and deal, with four 50/50 Series tournaments running Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Tot up all the guaranteed prize pools, and you arrive at a sum in excess of $2.5 million, which is pretty cool considering the tournaments only cost $50 to enter.

Most of the 50/50 Series schedule is made up of No-Limit Hold'em tournaments, although there are some No-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo, Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo, Pot-Limit Omaha, and Pot-Limit 5 Card Omaha events sprinkled in for good measure.

The two biggest events, in terms of guaranteed prize pools, are Event #2 and Event #35, which are both Progressive KO Mini Bounty Builder HR SE with at least $150,000 guaranteed to be won.
