This Event Guarantees $500K for a $55 Buy-in at PokerStars
Table Of Contents
If you are a low or mid-stakes player looking for big value this week, look no further than the $55 Mini Bounty Builder HR Progressive KO at PokerStars.
The reason these tournaments, which for the most part are sneaking under the radar, are even better to play this week as PokerStars has applied a "Guarantee Boost!" tag to this daily event between now and Sunday, Jan. 31.
The guarantees start at $150,000 on Jan. 26-27, which means they need at least 3,000 runners to meet the guarantee.
You shouldn't necessarily expect overlay in these two events, but just tremendous value as the event on Jan. 25 attracted $4,295 entrants to generate a $214,750 prize pool. United Kingdom's Dan "NukeTheFish!" Wilson took the most advantage as he shipped the event for $10,118 in prize money and $9,134 in bounties for a total haul of $19,252.
The guarantees only increase from there with Jan. 28 and Jan. 29 featuring a $175,000 guarantee and Jan. 30 featuring a $200,000 guarantee. You should go into these expecting these to be smashed as well.
PokerStars outdid themselves for the final $55 Mini Bounty Builder HR Progressive KO as on Sunday, Jan. 31, this tournament boasts a massive $500,000 prize pool. While we have certainly witnessed these big guarantees for reasonably small buy-ins, they are usually reserved for big festivals and not as a one off like this one.
Qualify for Just $5.50!
While many players will be paying the full $55 to enter these events, you don't have to.
PokerStars is running satellites with $5.50 and $11 buy-into these events so you can potentially play for just a fraction of the cost in what are the can't miss daily events of the week.
