Weekend Preview: The Relative Quiet Before The Storm!
Table Of Contents
There are some massive festivals on the horizon, not least the 2020 WSOP Online at GGPoker, the $100 million WPT Online World Championships at partypoker, and the Stadium Series at PokerStars but until then you can get involved in these awesome tournaments this weekend.
Two-Day Sunday Million at PokerStars
PokerStars’ Sunday Million has had a tweak to its structure this week and will take place across two days instead of the traditional one. The buy-in remains at $109 and the guarantee still weighs in at $1 million, but the event is spread over two days.
Everyone sits down with 10,000 chips and goes into battle on nine-handed tables where the blinds start at 25/50/5a. These blinds increase every 12-minutes for the first 10-levels before increasing to 15-minutes thereafter. You are allowed to re-enter up to three times while late registration is open, which is the case for 3.25 hours.
Day 1 continues for eight-hours and 50-minutes before being paused. Play resumes on Monday 6 July at 7:00 p.m. CET and continues until the champion is crowned.
Don’t worry if the $109 buy-in is to steep for you because there are a plethora of satellites running right up to the 7:00 p.m. CET start time of the Sunday Million. These start at only $1.10 and represent great value.
Keep an eye out for the $11 buy-in mega satellite at 5:05 p.m. CET on July 5 because PokerStars has slapped a 250-seat guarantee on this satellite; it could be your best route into the Sunday Million this week.
Four Hole Cards Are Better Than Two at partypoker
partypoker’s Omaha tournament schedule is superb throughout the week, but its guarantees are even bigger on Sundays. You’ll find PLO and PLO8 multi-table tournaments with buy-ins starting as low as a tiny $0.11 and as high as $2,100!
It’s difficult to pick out the best tournaments because one player’s meat is another’s poison, but we’re particular fans of the PLO Masters and Classics and the Big Bounty Hunter events.
Big Bounty Hunters kick off every two hours from 4:00 p.m. CET and costs between $2.20 and $215 to enter. A $5.50 and $55 buy-in Masters PLO shuffle up and deal at 9:00 p.m. CET and have $1,500 and $5,000 guaranteed.
Those PLO Classics we mentioned start at 11:00 p.m. CET on Sunday, have buy-ins of $3.30, $33, and $320 with guarantees of $300, $1,500, and a cool $10,000.
Turn $10 Into a Share of a Guaranteed $1 Million at GGPoker
The Global MILLION$ at GGPoker has quickly become one of the must-play events on the online tournament calendar. Not only does it have a guaranteed seven-figure prize pool, but you can play in it for only $10.
Global MILLION$ has dozens of Day 1s running throughout the week, each costing $100 to buy into. Nobody likes paying full price for things so GGPoker hosts $10 buy-in satellites several times per day. You can’t buy much with $10 these days, but you can spend $10 to have a shot at a $1 million prize pool.
Last Sunday’s Global MILLION$ saw everyone at the final table win at least $7,511. It paid its champion, “Julia RobBirds” of Canada, a massive $135,217! Imagine winning that from a $10 satellite. It’s the thing dreams are made of!
