BetOnline Announces $2.5M Online Poker Tour
Online casino operator BetOnline has announced the upcoming launch of a stunning $2.5 million guaranteed online Poker series.
Scheduled to run from September 7 through September 27, the tournament will reportedly feature a phenomenal schedule of 100 events in total. And better still is that according to BetOnline’s online tournament announcement, buy-ins will be starting out from as little as $1.10, and increasing all the way up to $530.
This means that even the most limited of bankrolls are free to join the online Poker competition party once the tournament officially gets underway come September. And it also helps that BetOnline has said that it will be hosting several satellites and tournament qualifiers at discounted prices for those in need of a money leg up.
Something For Everyone
A total of 11 tournaments will be played throughout the course of the competition, ultimately drawing to a close on September 27, which is the day on which the $300,000 guaranteed prize pool, $109 buy-in Monster Main Event will be played.
Several smaller Main Events are also scheduled to be in the mix. These include a $11 buy-in Mini Main Event, as well as a Bounty Main Event, a Bounty Mini Main Event, and a Pot-Limit Omaha Main Event.
And In WSOP News
But there’s been quite a bit of action happening on the online Poker scene in general. For one, Nick Maimone recently won his first-ever World Series of Poker gold bracelet when he played his way all the way to the final table and heads-up in the 2020 WSOP Online $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em “Marathon” event.
Beating a field some 1,428 entries strong, Maimone not only made his way to a coveted WSOP gold bracelet, but also got to bag the incredible first-place prize of $302,472. This adds quite a bit of money to his existing career cash wins and live tournament earnings.
Other big Poker names to have made it into the money circle include Ravid Garbi (26th – place finish, $9,245), Galen Hall (21st – place finish, $9,245), and Tim Reilly (13th – place finish, $17,555).
But it would be Nick Maimone who would, after having reached the final table in a 6th-place chip position, would eventually get to go up against fellow heads-up play opponent Diego Bittar. By then in the chip-lead, it would eventually be the ultimate winner’s king of spades and 8 of hearts to knock his opponent’s Ace of clubs and 5 of diamonds out the big blind park.
