There may be a writers strike going on in America but that doesn't mean you cant add a little glitz and glamour to your game, courtesy of Hollywood Poker. This is because they have doubled the guarantee on their flagship tournament – the Monthly Grand. Now you will be playing for a minimum of $750,000 in the three day event.
December saw 846 players enter the $1000 buy-in tournament, making a $846,000 prize pool. The deep stack freezeout has a 10,000 starting stack and a 30 minute clock on the last weekend of every month. The three day heat format starts on Friday on two day ones, the survivors of which play the Sunday finale.
There are also plenty of other reasons to play amongst the Stars at Hollywood Poker. Three times a week there is a 'top set pay day' – which means every time you hold pocket aces and spike a third ace you can win up to $100 even if you get sucked out on. If that isn't lucky enough for you, you can win up to $1000 whenever you make quad jacks-aces (this is not including the money you presumably would win anyway in the original pot.)
Four times a week there is a happy hour, whereby you earn poker points at twice the normal rate in order to clear your bonus faster. And talking of bonuses, we have a great one. Sign up to Hollywood Poker using bonus code PN1000 and you can get back up to 1000% and an iPod shuffle.
