Sundays Sizzle with partypoker Tournaments
Sundays have long had a reputation as the busiest tournament days at online poker websites. However, November 25 was a particularly action-filled event for players at partypoker, who enjoyed the end to the massive $10 million guaranteed KO Series with three events offering $300,000 guaranteed prize pools.
That wasn’t all that was on offer for punters at the iconic gaming site. There was also another trio of games that took place on the Sunday in question, boasting prize pools of at least $200,000 for the most skilled of Internet grinders to add to their bankrolls.
$10m Guaranteed in KO Series
The final day kicked off at 5pm CET with the KO Series #37-H: $200K Gtd [Mix-Max] $215 buy-in event. Two hours later was the KO Series #38-HR: $300K Gtd [8-Max] tournament offering a buy-in of $530, as well as the KO Series #38-H: $300K Gtd [8-Max] and KO Series #38-M: $200K Gtd [8-Max] events with buy-in prices of $109 and $33, respectively.
At 9pm, online players who were willing to front $1,050 for entry were treated to a KO Series #39-HR: $300K Gtd [Mix-Mx Fast], as well as a more affordable KO Series #39-H: $200K Gtd [Mix-Max Fast] for $215 per entry.
Sunday the 25th also saw the first starting flight of the $20 Million Guaranteed MILLIONS Online games, which kicked off at 8pm CET. This whopping $5,300 buy-in tournament was set to become the largest ever single online poker event in the industry’s history to date, promising to make its four top finishers instant millionaires. The ultimate winner walked away with a minimum win of $2.5 million – not bad for a day’s work!
$20m MILLIONS Online Events Begin
The schedule began on November 25 at 9pm, as mentioned above, with the MILLIONS Online Day 1A, which was followed by Day 1B on Thursday, 29 November. Next up will be the MILLIONS Online Day 1C on Sunday, 2 November, Day 1D on Monday, 3 December, Day 1E Turbo on 4 December, and the Final Day on the 5th of the month at 8pm.
Of course, $5,300 is a steep buy-in for most regular players, so partypoker was sure to amp up the number of satellites it offered in the run-up to the massive online tournament. Added value satellites will be running every day, in which the brand will add seats and tickets to the prize pool as soon as late registration closes.
Essentially, this means that more seats and more tickets to the events will be won by the site’s players, and the value of these prizes is absolutely huge. This is particularly pertinent on Sundays, when the number of tickets and seats on offer is instantly doubled. Last but not least, November 25 also saw the launch of the MILLIONS Online Mega Satellites, offering over $5 million’s worth of seats for grinders to win at a mere $530 direct buy-in!
