PartyPoker Weekly: Players React to Mike Sexton's Call for a Dress Code, and More!
Welcome to the latest edition of the PartyPoker Weekly, your one-stop shop for all matters that are PartyPoker related. This week we bring you details of a 50-Seat Frenzy tournament that could see you playing in the $300k Guaranteed Sunday tournament for free, poker pros opinions on Mike Sexton's suggestions for a poker dress code, and more besides.
Win 1 of 50 Seats to the Weekly $300k Guaranteed Tournament
PartyPoker's flagship tournament is a $215 buy-in event that boasts a $300,000 guaranteed prize pool. For some players, $215 is far too much to invest in a single poker tournament, but thanks to the 50-Seat Frenzy you could be participating in the $300,000 for free!
Every Saturday at 13:35 ET, there is a special 50 Seat Frenzy tournament that awards the top 50 finishers a seat in the $300,000 guaranteed. Players can buy into the 50-Seat Frenzy directly for just $15 or they can try to qualify in one of the daily country-specific freerolls where the top 10 players win a seat.
There are also daily $1 and $2 50 Seat Frenzy qualifiers running on PartyPoker.
The $300,000 Guaranteed Sunday kicks off at 18:30 every Sunday and pays the eventual winner around $40,000. Can you image winning $40,000 from a freeroll entry? How amazing would that be? Why not attempt to do it? Download PartyPoker today and get involved in the 50 Seat Frenzy.
Pros React to Mike Sexton's Comments on Having a Dress Code for Poker
Poker legend and PartyPoker sponsored pro, Mike Sexton, is not afraid to speak his mind. And why should he be? Sexton has vast experience in poker and has quite literally seen it all. In the past few months, Sexton has asked for a basketball-type shot clock to be introduced to the game, has made some bold predictions for 2013 and even stated that there should be a dress code for poker players.
At the World Poker Tour Prague main event, the PartyPoker video crew questioned a few of the professional players who were competing there what they thought of Sexton's dress code comments.
