partypoker is launching a brand new online tournament series next month, boasting giant prize pools with seriously tiny buy-ins. The new 11-day Monster Series runs October 21st to 31st and offers recreational and low- to mid-stakes players the chance to compete for a mammoth $5,000,000 in guaranteed prizes.

Player feedback was instrumental in creating the Monster Series schedule which has been devised by partypoker's Bryan Slick.
The Monster Series is split into two stakes levels - Micro and Mid - each with its own schedule and exciting Main Event. All events carry a prize pool guarantee, ranging from $1,000 up to $1,000,000 for the Mid-Level Main Event. Players will be able to buy in direct to each and every event, or qualify via satellites.

The Micro-Level Main Event, which takes place on Sunday, 29th October, is a $22, single re-entry with a monster guarantee of $300,000.
The Mid schedule will see players competing for a combined monster guaranteed prize pool of $4,000,000, including a $215 buy-in Main Event that takes place on Sunday 29th October and comes with a $1,000,000 guarantee. There are 70 Mid-Level events, with buy-ins ranging from $11 to $215.

Bryan Slick said: "Players have been asking for a mid-stakes series for a very long time, and we're delighted to be able to provide it at partypoker, while also providing a first-ever micro-stakes series for our players. With a total guarantee of $5,000,000, the new series is going to give thousands of players many chances to compete for serious prizes across nearly two weeks of amazing poker!"
partypoker ambassador Natalia Breviglieri said: "The new partypoker Monster Series is a fantastic initiative. Like me, there's a lot of players out there who really enjoy playing low to mid stake Sit and Go's or MTT's and will relish the opportunity to compete in a tournament series tailored just for them. There are some really huge guarantees on offer throughout the Series and it's clear that a lot of thought has gone into designing a schedule that offers a wide range of formats. I'm really excited about this series, it's going to be a fun 11 days and I can't wait to start playing!"
