On Sunday Microgaming (poker network) throws a tournament with a €750,000 guaranteed prize pool (buy-in €300+€20). It's the old €500,000 tournament that has gotten its prize pool boosted with €250,000 or 50% extra. That Microgaming with such a short notice add so much money to a single tournament doesn't come as a surprise. Just like many other poker sites/networks, Microgaming are now taking up the fight for the tournament players since Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars were forced to reduce the guarantees in their biggest Sunday tournaments.
This might be a golden opportunity for Microgaming, a network that had its peak a few year's ago, to get back tournament players that usually wouldn't even consider playing anywhere else than at the world's 2 largest poker sites. However, many analysis suggest that Full Tilt and PokerStars players are quite loyal, so it will be interesting to whether or not Microgaming can keep the players in the long run.
