May Madness Ends With a Bang at Party Poker
Party Poker are fast emerging as the home of the high rollers. Earlier this year they announced they will be charging a flat $10 rate on their SNGs, meaning that the high stakes grinders will see a much bigger return on their investments, as well as making Fridays the new Sundays with a number of big buy-in guaranteed tournaments. Now the top poker room has announced a $1 million guaranteed tournament for this Saturday.
Party Poker have guaranteed $12 million this month in what they have dubbed 'May Madness', now they are ending the last big month before the World Series with a $600+$40 event with a championship style structure. Blinds start at 25/50 with a 20,000 starting stack and 20 minute levels. 400 big blind stacks are perfect practice for anyone making their way out to Vegas this summer.
$600+$40 puts a dent on the meatiest of bankrolls, which is why you can qualify for as little as $1. There are feeders round the clock at a wide variety of buy-ins including $1, $4, $8, $10, $35 and $70. Not only that, but you can use your Party Points to buy-in, from as little as 250 points (Which is just a day's work for the cash game grinders out there) you can win your seat to the big one.
A PartyPoker.com spokesman said: "There are so many different ways to qualify for the $1 million guaranteed on Saturday. Whether you use PartyPoints, $1, $4, $8, $10, $35, $70 or pay the direct buy-in of $600+$40, the routes in to the finale are endless. There is also country specific freerolls this week that provide the opportunity to win seats."
If the sound of a $600 MTT makes your ears bleed, then Party Poker could have something a little more up your street. The Bankroll Builder is a series of freerolls for new depositors to dip their toes into the water of real money play. For 60 days after your first deposit you can enter exclusive $100 freerolls. The top 50 spots pay out and are also entered into a weekly $2500 freeroll on Saturday. Not only that, but new players are automatically eligible for the $2500 events on Saturday for the first 7 days after their first deposit.
