Poker tournament players are spoiled for choice when it comes to major events to play this weekend. There’s the 888poker Sunday Sale, the partypoker MILLIONS Online Main Event, and this trio of tournaments that are crammed full of value.
GGMasters: GGPoker’s Massive Freezeout
Head to GGPoker this weekend if you’re a fan of freezeout tournaments. Freezeouts are something of a rarity in the online poker world these days, so seeing one with a $500,000 guaranteed prize pool is most welcome.
The GGMasters shuffles up and deals at 5:00 p.m. GMT on February 21. Buying in direct costs $150, although there are satellites running around the clock that start at a mere $1.50. Regardless of how you enter, you sit down with 10,000 chips and play to a 12-minute clock where the blinds start at 25/50/5a,
Last weekend’s GGMasters drew in a crowd of 3,794 players who created a $523,572 prize pool, way more than the advertised $500,000 guarantee. The top 611 players cashed and “L1mpFold”, the last player standing, collected a cool $54,631 after a heads-up deal with runner-up “flipdiaz” who scooped $49,720.
Sign Off The Week With The Main Sunday Sweat
Betfair Poker’s Main Sunday Sweat is one of the site’s most popular multi-table tournaments and it’s easy to see why.
This €100 buy-in tournament has €10 satellites feeding into it all weekend, making it accessible to even more Betfair Poker players. For that €100 investment, you receive 10,000 chips and play to blinds starting at 25/50/4a; they increase every 10-minutes.
Unlike the GGMasters tournament mentioned above, you can re-enter the Main Sunday Sweat once during the first 11 levels of play. The rewards for taking this event down are substantial thanks to the €30,000 guarantee Betfair Poker places in the prize pool.
You may want to check out the Rebuy Rumble tournaments while considering playing the Main Sunday Sweat. A handful of these €3 and €5 buy-in rebuy tournaments, which have €1,000 and €1,500 guarantees, are scheduled to run this weekend.
15th Anniversary Sunday Million Mega Satellites
PokerStars recently announced the details for the 15th anniversary edition of the long-running Sunday Million. It is a $215 buy-in event with a staggering $12.5 million guaranteed prize pool, which will award at least two $1 million prizes!
The tournament needs 62,500 entrants to hit the massive guarantee, so it is unsurprising to see scores of satellites feeding into it. There are a few dozen Sunday Million 15th Anniversary Mega Sat tournaments running across the weekend. They come with buy-ins of $11 and $22 and have between two and 10x $215 seats guaranteed.
Brush up on your satellite strategy and see if you can bag yourself a $215 seat to the $12.5 million guaranteed 15th Anniversary edition of the Sunday Million.
