Weekend Preview: Check Out This Trio Of Awesome MTTs
Table Of Contents
The online poker tournament scene has been ridiculously busy these past few weeks with festivals taking place seemingly everywhere. Those festivals are now done and dusted, but there is still plenty of value to be had across the board. Here are three tournaments that are definitely worth checking out over the weekend.
$500,000 Gtd GGMasters Freezeout
The GGMasters at GGPoker is one of the best value tournaments online right now. This $150 buy-in tournament features a $500,000 guaranteed prize pool and is something of a rarity in that it’s a freezeout.
The main reason it’s a freezeout is because you receive Player of the Year leaderboard points when you reach the money places. Finish at the top of the leaderboard at the end of 2020 and you’ll become a GG ambassador with a package worth up to $500,000! The rest of the top 10 win tickets to each and every GGMasters tournament taking place in 2021!
Last week’s GGMasters drew in a crowd of 4,262 who created a $588,156 prize pool. It ended in a heads-up chop between China’s “gokchinees!” and “BangBang!” of Ecuador. Gokchinees! walked away with $72,417 while the runner-up collected $70,104.
Win your way into this week’s GGMasters from only $1.50.
Sunday Million Gets Summer Series Treatment; $1.5 Million Gtd PKO
The 2020 SCOOP is over but it’s not taken PokerStars long to create a new festival. Summer Series kicks off on June 7 and one of the highlights of the opening day is the special edition Sunday Million.
It keeps its $109 buy-in but features a $1.5 million guarantee instead of $1 million. Oh, and it is played as a progressive knockout event and takes place over the course of two days. You’ll receive at least $25 for every opponent you bust, although those bounties will grow to epic proportions in the latter stages.
You receive 10,000 chips for your $109 buy-in and play t a 12-minute clock for the first 10 levels before the structure switches to 15-minute blinds thereafter. Late registration is open for the first three-hours and 15-minutes and up to three re-entries are permitted during this time.
Day 1 ends after 8.5 hours and resumes at 7:00 p.m. CET on June 8.
Buy in direct or try winning your way into this $1.5 million guaranteed PKO edition of the Sunday Million from as little as $5.50. Good luck.
$100,000 Guaranteed in the Sunday Mega Deep
888poker has a superb tournament that has come on in leaps and bounds recently. The $100,000 Sunday Mega Deep had previously been struggling to reach its guarantee, but the increased online traffic has seen that six-figure guarantee hit regularly.
Last week’s tournament attracted 1,065-entries who created a $106,500 prize pool shared among the top 99 finishers.
Ukraine’s “For1k” was the last player standing and they turned their $109 into $19,542. They defeated “Utd879908” of the United Kingdom who made the most of his second bullet to bank $13,951.
Perhaps the best thing about the $100,000 Sunday Mega Deep is you can qualify for it from only $0.10! Imagine turning 10-cents into almost $20,000. Now stop day dreaming and start making it happen!
