Black Chip Poker has changed two of its major weekend tournaments to offer players thirty-two more opportunities to qualify for its Winning Millions Event.
Black Chip Poker´s “Winning Millions” event is just around the corner and, in order to allow more players to get a little extra value in the $1 million guaranteed tournament, the site is changing two of its major weekend tournaments to award thirty-two extra seats each week into the target event.
From this weekend, instead of offering seats into live event qualifiers such as the Punta Cana Classic and Latin Poker Series, the weekly “Beast” and “Sit n Crush” tournaments will be offering a minimum of thirty-two seats into the Winning Millions tournament on Sunday 14th December – each worth a colossal $540.00!
About Black Chip Poker´s Winning Millions
Black Chip Poker´s Winning Millions is the first online poker tournament since Black Friday in 2011 to offer a seven-figure guaranteed prize pool, and consequently it has attracted significant interest from players from all over the world. Already more than 150 players have qualified for the tournament through Black Chip Poker´s extensive satellite schedule, and with seven weeks to go before the cards are in the air, the event could see a total entry in excess of a thousand players.
The tournament itself starts at 15:00 ET (20:00 GMT) and has late registration for five hours, during which time players have the opportunity to re-enter and receive a fresh starting stack of 10,000 chips if they have the misfortune to be knocked out during the early stages. A gentle blind structure means that players taking advantage of the full late registration period will be playing with ten big blinds (level 20 blinds are 500/1,000 – ante 100) and a lot of late registrations are anticipated.
Even so, there is the potential for the Making Millions tournament to have a huge overlay – offering exceptional value to players who cash in the event, and even more value to players who qualify through the weekly “Beast” and “Sit n Crush” tournaments that are now offering extra seats to the target event.
Qualifying Through the Beast and Sit n Crush Tournaments
Tickets to the “Beast” and “Sit n Crush” tournaments are awarded to players who finish at the top of the weekly “Beast” rake race or “Sit n Crush” leaderboard in addition to the valuable cash prizes. However, each tournament can be bought into directly with cash or by using Black Chip Poker Benefit Points – ensuring that there is a sizeable field in each event.
The “Beast” tournament is often the more popular of the two – having a lower buy-in of $27.50 – and from this Sunday (@ 6.00pm ET) the tournament will be guaranteeing a minimum of twenty-five seats into the Winning Millions event. Players who miss the opportunity of competing in the “Beast” tournament – or those who prefer smaller fields – can opt to play in the “Sit n Crush” tournament (Sundays @ 8.30pm ET) which has a direct buy-in of $55.00 and which guarantees a minimum of seven seats into the target event.
Alternative Routes into the Winning Millions Event
There are also many alternative routes into Black Chip Poker´s Winning Millions tournament – including a freeroll route. Winning Millions freeroll tournaments are scheduled on Black Chip Poker at 10:00am and at 13:30pm. Each guarantees three seats into the daily $22.00 sub-satellite at 5.45pm, which guarantees a minimum of two seats into the nightly $109.00 satellite at 8.30pm (which guarantees one seat into the Winning Millions tournament).
Other routes to the $22.00 sub-satellite include a $3.30 hyper tournament played every thirty minutes between 12.40pm and 5.40pm and a $0.28 qualifier played every hour between 10.40am and 4.40pm. Multiple routes exist to the nightly $109.00 satellite, including re-buy and add-on tournaments hosted on Black Chip Poker throughout the day with buy-ins of $0.55, $1.10, and $6.60.
There are also Sit n Go routes to the nightly $109.00 satellite, and a $5.50 buy-in “On Demand” Sit n Go satellite which guarantees the winner a seat at the Winning Millions table. The “On Demand” Sit n Go satellite starts when just eighteen players have registered and, although the tournament has an hour of late registration and re-entry, the lucky winner is practically assured of a massive overlay.
