Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the PartyPoker Weekly where you will find details of all the latest promotions taking place on PartyPoker. If you want to know what is going on in the world of PartyPoker you have come to the right place.
Aussie Millions Satellites Must End Soon
The 2013 Aussie Millions main event kicks off on Jan. 27 and you could be playing in it thanks to the superb qualifiers PartyPoker is running. You could even be heading to Australia armed with a $16,000 package to the Aussie Millions main even absolutely free. Are you interested? Of course you are! Then keep on reading to find out more about the Aussie Millions qualifiers.
The Aussie Millions is one of the most eagerly anticipated festivals on the live tournament calendar thanks in part to its stunning location, the hot weather in Australia and the even hotter poker action. Last year’s A$10,000 Aussie Millions main event attracted a crowd of 659 players who created a prize pool of A$6,590,000. The lion’s share of this monster-sized prize pool – A$1,600,000 to be exact — went to Olivier Speidel, the eventual 2012 Aussie Millions main event champion. This year it could be you who PokerNews is writing about!
Aussie Millions qualifiers have been running on PartyPoker since Nov.12 but they will cease to exist at midnight on Jan. 6, 2013. This gives you just under three weeks if you want to bag yourself a fantastic Aussie Millions package worth $16,000! Each package consists of:
- $11,000 Aussie Millions main event buy-in
- Eight nights’ accommodation.
- $2,500 spending money.
As you can see from the graphic below, it is possible to qualify for the 2013 Aussie Millions main event for free, nil, nada, zilch! All you would need to do is win the Aussie Millions Freeroll; then progress through the daily $2 Aussie Millions Sub Qualifier Speed Rebuy; then the daily $74 Aussie Millions Satellite Qualifier and finally the $680 Aussie Millions Satellite that runs every Sunday and guarantees one $16,000 package.
PokerNews' Live Reporting team will be at the Crown Casino, Melbourne for the 2013 Aussie Millions; will you be?
Show Us Your Poker Face!
Lady Gaga sang about one, Phil Ivey has one of the most intimidating and everyone has one. That is correct ladies and gentlemen, we are talking about poker faces!
At the recent World Poker Tour Prague main event (and one instance of WPT Copenhagen thrown into the mix too), the PartyPoker video team asked a number of the competitors to show them their poker faces. Which of these do you think is the best? What does your own poker face look like?

Sundays are traditionally the biggest day of any poker player’s week. Every Sunday, poker sites from around the globe offer their biggest and best tournaments and players flock to them in the hope of winning a life-changing sum of money. PartyPoker is no different, it also runs its flagship tournament on a Sunday, the $200,000 guaranteed!
The PartyPoker $200,000 Guaranteed takes place every Sunday at 13:30ET and costs just $215 to enter, which is not bad considering the huge guarantee PartyPoker place on the event. Of course, PartyPoker realize not everyone has $215 to spend on a tournament entry so they run a plethora of satellites and qualifier tournaments during the week that start as low as just 50 PartyPoints!
For those who prefer to keep their PartyPoints for other purposes there are also a number of low and mid-stakes satellite tournaments available. There are daily tournaments with buy-ins ranging from $3-$58 that award seats to the $215 PartyPoker $200,000 Guaranteed, meaning there is plenty of opportunity to win your way to one of the best online poker tournaments available.
