PartyPoker Weekly: Winter Million, Rake Free Tournaments, Tony G Suggests Phil Hellmuths Retires and More!
PartyPoker Winter Million
One of the biggest online tournaments of 2012 will be the Winter Million as PartyPoker is set to guarantee $1 million this February!
This is a big chance for players to start their year in style. The million dollar prize pool is offering life-changing prizes and is one event which should not be missed.
The buy-in for the Winter Million is $600+$40 and PartyPoker has given players plenty of time to qualify for the event.
The tournament will take place on Feb. 5 and will be played in a championship format and really is going to be one of the best tournaments of the year.
PartyPoker wants as many of their players as possible to take part in the $1 million event and have begun offering qualifiers from as little as $1. Imagine turning $1 into a share of a $1 million.
The new year is almost upon us but it is not too early to start thinking about taking part in the Winter Million and we can't think of any better way to start a year then with a share of a gigantic prize pool.
Head to the Aussie Millions
There is only one tournament on the minds of poker players all around the world and that is the upcoming Aussie Millions in Melbourne, Australia.
The Main Event costs $10,600 to enter and will take place from Jan. 22 to Jan. 28, 2012 and the best place to pick up a $16,000 tournament package is at PartyPoker.
Qualifiers start from as little as $2 and it has never been easier to be making your way down under to take part in the premier tournament series of the southern hemisphere.
$16,000 Aussie Millions Package
- $11,400 Aussie Millions Main Event buy-in
- Eight nights accommodation at the Crown Promenade Hotel, which is right next to the Crown Casino where the Aussie Millions is taking place
- $2,500 spending money
No More Rake
Thanks to PartyPoker, from Jan. 1 to Jan. 31 you will not have to pay any rake across the whole multi-table tournament schedule.
The above is not a typo as players at PartyPoker will spend January saving thousands of dollars in tournament fees.
To add to the huge value of this coming January, players will also have the opportunity to cash in on a generous reload bonus and a $50,000 freeroll.
To receive a reload bonus of 100% up to $100, existing PartyPoker players must deposit at least $50 using the bonus code "RAKEFREE" during January.
If you make this minimum reload deposit using the bonus code above, you will also be eligible to take part in the $50,000 Depositors' Freeroll. The huge value freeroll will take place on Feb. 5 at 1100 ET and as it is so easy to qualify, there are simply no excuses for missing this event.
Merry Christmas From Tony G
In his latest blog, Tony G tells us that "Christmas is coming to the G household". At least that's what he told us before he began needling Phil Hellmuth as Tony G offered the poker brat what he called a "spiritual video".
"At this time of year it is only right that you think about others in need and have a deep and meaningful with yourself about life, love and the cosmos. It is with this in mind that I channeled all my positive energy into this spiritual video message to Phil Hellmuth. The change from 2011 to 2012 is very significant for you I know Phil."
The very humorous video message to Phil Hellmuth went on to suggest that Hellmuth's time is up in the poker world and that he should consider retirement.
The very humorous video can be viewed on Tony G's blog .
