$5 Million Guaranteed Monster Series Heads to partypoker

Monster Series

Fresh off the back of a successful Powerfest series, partypoker is launching the Monster Series, a $5 million guaranteed online poker tournament festival aimed at low and mid-stakes players.

Although the $35 million guaranteed Powerfest series had a range of buy-ins to suit all bankroll, the Monster Series has been designed, with the help of tournament schedule guru Bryan Slick, with lower stakes players in mind. The festival runs from Oct. 21-31

Split into Micro-Level and Mid-Level, the $5 million guaranteed Monster Series boasts of 140 events with buy-ins ranging from $1.10 up to $215 for the Mid-Level Main Event and each of those 140 tournaments has a guarantee of between $1,000 and $1,000,000.

The Micro-Level is made up of 70 tournaments with buy-ins from $1.10 up to $5.50 and there are combined guarantees of $1,000,000. This level ends with a $22 buy-in $300,000 guaranteed Main Event on Oct. 29.

For the Mid-Level players, there are also 70 events scheduled with combined guarantees of $4,000,000. Buy-ins for his level start at $11 and increase to $55, with the $215 Main Event, and its $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool, running on Oct. 29.

partypoker ambassador Natalia Breviglieri is delighted with the new scheduled aimed at low to mid-stakes poker tournament players. “The new partypoker Monster Series is a fantastic initiative. Like me, there’s a lot of players out there who really enjoy playing low to mid stake Sit and Go’s or MTT’s and will relish the opportunity to compete in a tournament series tailored just for them. There are some really huge guarantees on offer throughout the Series and it’s clear that a lot of thought has gone into designing a schedule that offers a wide range of formats. I’m really excited about this series, it’s going to be a fun 11 days and I can’t wait to start playing!”

Speaking about the Monster Series schedule, Bryan Slick said: “Players have been asking for a mid-stakes series for a very long time, and we’re delighted to be able to provide it at partypoker, while also providing a first-ever micro-stakes series for our players. With a total guarantee of $5,000,000, the new series is going to give thousands of players many chances to compete for serious prizes across nearly two weeks of amazing poker!”

Monster Series Rake Race

In addition to the $5,000,000 worth of Monster Series tournament guarantees, partypoker is running a Monster Series Rake Race from Oct. 12-21. This rake race focusses on partypoker’s fast-fold variant known as fastforward. Players earn one point per $1 paid in cash game rake and the top 100 points earners – top 50 for the high stakes race – receive a share of more than $100,000 in cash and tournament tickets.

To help keep matters fair, the race is split into three categories based on the stakes played for. Micro Stakes covered $0.02/$0.05 and $0.05/$0.10 blinds, Mid Stakes is dedicated to $0.10/$0.25 and $0.25/$0.50 games and High Stakes, which runs Oct. 21-31, is reserved for $0.50/$1, $1/$2 and $2/$5 blinds.
