Tournament poker is one of the most exciting formats of the game, which is why every online poker site worth their salt has an extensive tournament schedule. Players who frequent the sites on the busy iPoker Network have seen extensive changes to the tournament schedule there, including revamped structures, and new formats.
At least €100,000 is guaranteed across all tournaments every day on the iPoker Network. Sites such as bet365, Betfair, Ladbrokes, and William Hill are already running the new-look multi-table tournaments.
To help promote the new schedule, there is an MTT Missions promotion running on the network, which gives those who play in three tournaments in a week, access to a €500 all-in freeroll, or a €2,500 freeroll depending on the size of the buy-ins for the trio of tournaments.
Although the changes are already in force, full details of those changes are yet to be released, but by heading to the tournament lobby of bet365, you can see an increased number of payout places, more multi-entry tournaments, more knockout tournaments, and fewer freezeouts.
A thread on the Two Plus Two forum bemoans the fact that rebuys, add-ons, and the knockout are all now raked. Raking rebuys is something that PokerStars also does, despite players in the poker tournament community being against it.
The tournament web page on William Hill boasts of “over €5 million in guaranteed prizes every month” although looking at the websites of other iPoker Network sites such as Ladbrokes, a figure of €3 million guaranteed is displayed.
Some of the flagship tournaments can be seen in the tables below.
