Big Weekend Ahead in partypoker Tournaments

  • partypoker's Jab, Contender, and Uppercut have double guarantees on January 30 as part of Fight Night.

  • $100,000 guaranteed Cobra bounty tournament kicks off at 6:00pm on January 31.

  • Carl Froch and four other stars to play the Cobra MTT with $2,000 bounties on their heads.

Tournament specialists looking for exceptional value need to look no further than partypoker where a quartet of special events are running across the weekend.

Fresh from its Big Freeze promotion, where four of its most popular tournaments changed to freezeouts from re-entry, partypoker is running Fight Night at 7:00 pm GMT on Saturday 30 January. During Fight Night, The Jab, The Contender, and The Uppercut tournaments see their guarantees doubled despite their buy-ins remaining the same as any other day.

TournamentBuy-inUsual GuaranteeFight Night Guarantee
Fight Night: The Jab$5.50$10,000$20,000
Fight Night: The Contender$22$20,000$40,000
Fight Night: The Uppercut$109$50,000$100,000

Buying into all three tournaments, which regularly miss their standard guarantees during the week, would set a player back $136.00 but give them the shot at combined prize pools of at least $160,000.

Players are permitted to make one re-entry per Fight Night tournament

Satellites are running around the clock for all three tournaments via partypoker’s Ticket tournaments, which start as low as $0.01 to enter.

Players can also use their points to purchase tickets via partypoker’s Loyalty Store – players earn two points per $1 paid in cash game rake or tournament fees – with the cost reducing the higher up the loyalty scheme they are.

$100,000 Guaranteed Cobra Tournament Runs Jan. 31

The day after Fight Night sees another huge tournament take place at partypoker’s virtual felt, namely the $100,000 Cobra. This exciting event commences at 6:00 pm GMT on Sunday 31 January and costs $100+$9 to enter.

$82 of each buy-in goes into the prize pool, with each player having the remaining $20 placed on their head in the form of a bounty. To add a little more pizzazz to the $100,000 Cobra, five special guests are playing with a $2,000 bounty up for grabs. They are, complete with partypoker screen names:

  • partypoker ambassador Carl Froch: Carl_Froch
  • Dusk Till Dawn owner Rob Yong: Rob_Yong_
  • The one and only Simon Trumper: Simon_Trumper
  • Sky TV’s Formula 1 lead presenter Simon Lazenby: Lazers75
  • Made in Chelsea TV star Jamie Laing: JamieLaing_UK

Like the Fight Night tournaments, players can qualify for the $100,000 Cobra via the many satellites running around the clock, with players also able to exchange points for a generic $109 tournament ticket via the Loyalty Store.
