Weekend Preview: New Look MILLION, Global MILLION$, and Mini Mega Deep
Table Of Contents
Online poker tournament players are spoiled for choice when it comes to variety right now. Sites have seriously upped their game knowing massive sections of the poker community won’t be heading out to Las Vegas this summer for the postponed 2020 WSOP.
You could, literally, spend all day creating a plan of attack for this weekend’s best tournaments. There’s no need to do this because PokerNews has selected three awesome tournaments, with a variety of buy-ins, that are just waiting for you to take them down.
The New Look partypoker MILLION
partypoker has gone back to basics and revamped its flagship weekly tournament, the $1 million guaranteed partypoker MILLION.
Its $215 buy-in and $1 million guarantee remain the same, but now there are only seven Day 1s running instead of a few dozen. These shuffle up and deal at 7:30 p.m. CET Monday to Sunday.
Another major change is the doubling of the blind levels to 20-minutes. This gives you more bang for your buck and helps ensure the cream rises to the top.
You can play in as many Day 1s as you wish, but only your largest stack can be taken through to Monday’s final day. Buy into any Day 1 for $215, exchange some Tournament Dollars, or win your way into one via the $2.20 and $22 partypoker MILLION satellites.
One last thing, this week’s tournament is almost guaranteed to have a juicy overlay. The MILLION used to regularly overlay when partypoker used this format previously, plus poker players are notorious for being slow to adapt to new tournaments. This makes the partypoker MILLION a must-play event.
$1 Million Guaranteed GGPoker Global MILLION$
Don’t be confused by the name, the MILLION$ tournaments are hosted at GGPoker and not partypoker like the tournament mentioned above.
The MILLION$ series are a new set of weekly tournaments that feature several Day 1s that feed into the Sunday final. The Global MILLION$ is the event highlighted here purely for the fact it gives you the chance to turn $100 into a share of a guaranteed $1 million.
There are more than a dozen $100 buy-in Global MILLION$ Day 1s waiting to be played before the final day on June 14. At the time of writing, 2,187 players have taken a shot at reaching the final day and 303 have been successful. These numbers are obviously set to increase over the coming days.
If $100 is outside the constraints of your bankroll, why not try satellite your way in for only $10? The Global MILLION$ satellites run several times per day and guarantee at least three $100 seats will be won.
Turning $10 into a six-figure prize is the thing of dreams. Only you can make your dreams a reality.
Huge Value in the $22 Mini Mega Deep at 888poker
One of 888poker’s best-value tournaments is the $100,000 Sunday Mega Deep, a $109 buy-in that often struggles to hit its guarantee. The Mega Deep has a cut-price option for you to try, the $20,000 Mini Mega Deep.
This only costs $22 to enter but don’t be fooled by the budget prize because this is a serious tournament. You receive 30,000 chips for your $22 and play to a blind structure that starts at 125/250/30a and increases every 15-minutes. It’s a great structure and one that wouldn’t look out of place in a tournament with a much larger buy-in.
There aren’t any satellites into the Mini Mega Deep but a $22 shot in this Sunday’s tournament probably isn’t going to break the bank. Good luck!
