They say variety is the spice of life, whoever they are, so why not add something different to your multi-table tournament grind this weekend and get involved in this trio of events at partypoker, GGPoker, and Unibet Poker.
$150,000 Guaranteed APAT WCOAP Main Event
The $750,000 guaranteed Amateur Poker Association & Tour (APAT) World Championship Of Online Poker (WCOAP) festival concludes at partypoker this weekend and what better way to wrap things up than with the biggest online tournament APAT has ever run.
The WCOAP Main Event shuffles up and deals at 7:15 p.m. GMT on February 7 at partypoker. It will set you back $109 to enter but for that sum you receive a generous helping of 100,000 tournament chips and get to play for a share of a guaranteed prize pool worth $150,000.
Anyone who has played in the WCOAP events this year will tell you the structures of these tournaments are fantastic; they wouldn’t look out of place in a tournament commanding a buy-in 10-100x the size.
Blinds in the WCOAP Main Event start at 500/1,000/100a and increase every 16 minutes. Late registration is open until the end of the 12th level where the blinds are still only 2,000/4,000/500a!
This is a two-day tournament. Day 1 concludes after the completion of the 23rd level, which makes things should start wrapping up around 2:00 a.m.. Day 2 starts at 7:15 p.m. on February 8 and continues until only one player has all the chips in play.
Satellites from only $1.10 are running right now, giving you the chance to play in this fantastic freezeout event for peanuts.
Kick Your Sunday Off Early At GGPoker
Poker players are known for keeping strange hours, with many being night owls, so to speak. If you’re an early bird, however, we have the perfect tournament for you over at GGPoker.
GGPoker’s Asian Poker League (APL) series is in full swing and one of its 16 APL Trophy events takes place on February 7. You’re going to have to be up nice and early if you want to compete in it because cards are in the air from 8:00 a.m. GMT! This is because the APL events are aimed more at the Asian market.
Kicking off at that unholy time is the APL Trophy #4 – Ho Chi Minh City Championship. Not only is the early start time different, but it could also be the only time you play in a tournament with a 3,300,000 Vietnamese Dong buy-in and one with a 4,000,000,000 Vietnamese Dong guaranteed prize pool. That equated to a US dollar buy-in of around $142 and a guarantee in the region of $172,600.
Satellites costing one-tenth of the Ho Chi Minh City’s buy-in are running around the clock, why not try to win your way into the four-billion Dong guaranteed event via one of these?
Shine Like a Supernova at Unibet Poker
Unibet Poker isn’t necessarily the first online poker site you think about when asked about big Sunday tournaments, but it will be if you manage to win the €20,000 Supernova this weekend.
The cartoon-like graphics make Unibet Poker stand out from the crowd, but there is a serious poker site under all that fun. The Supernova costs €100 to enter (€25 satellites are available) and for that princely sum, you receive 15,000 chips and play to a 12-minute clock where the blinds start at 15/30/4a.
The Supernova is a freezeout event, which is pretty rare these days, so make your first and only bullet count.
