How can I enter?
1. Direct buy-in for $200* 2. Qualify online in many of our satellites, starting at only $1! 3. Qualify online in a free-to-enter satellite! 4. Qualify online in a massive 100-Seat Guaranteed Mega-Satellite (more details on PartyPoker's website)
*Players who buy-in direct for $200 will also get a $500 bonus on top of any winnings. The bonus will be paid on 12th May. Bonuses will be released at a rate of $50 for every 250 points earned. Bonuses will have 30 days to be released.
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.
Ever taken a shot at the big money in some of the big online tournaments on Sundays (PokerStars Sunday Million, Full Tilt's $750,000 guarantee etc)? If you have, did you ever manage to make it deep in any of these tournaments and win some serious cash? Whatever your story might be, you will be impressed after reading about Jordan "Jymaster11" Young and his results at Full Tilt last Sunday.
4,401 players took part in the $750,000 guarantee tournament last Sunday at Full Tilt poker. The total prize pool landed on $880,000 and the winner was going to take home not less than $155,434. After about 11 hours of poker there were only 2 players left, "KtownCicero" and "HITTHEPANDA". Of these 2 it came to be the American,"KtownCicero" who grabbed the 1st place and the first prize of $155,434. "HITTHEPANDA" received $94,093 for his second place.
