BetOnline Poker Launches Shark Week with $10K GTD Main Event

Posted on by Roy Smith

Poker Shark WeekShark Week is always a favorite for Discovery Channel viewers and now it will be a favorite for BetOnline Poker players as well with a $10,000 GTD Main Event.

Poker Shark Week will run from July 21 to August 4 and culminate with a $10K GTD tournament at 2:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, August 4. But there will be plenty of action and excitement leading up to the Main Event throughout Poker Shark Week.

$1 Daily Qualifiers

That’s because there are 10 daily qualifiers that cost only a $1 to buy-in that will award 10 guaranteed seats to the $10,000 GTD Main Event on August 4. Players who fail to qualify can still get in on the action as the Main Event entry fee is just $22.

You can buy-in directly, however, players who do manage to qualify via the 10 daily 10-Seat GTD Qualifiers will achieve “Shark” status. All players labeled as Sharks will get a supersized starting chip stack that’ll be three times larger than direct buy-in participants.

Obviously, it pays to earn your Main Event seat thru the many qualifiers that will be hosted prior to the start of the Poker Shark Week $10K GTD Main Event. It will allow you to take a bite out of your opponents at the table!

Mobile Poker App Benefits

But that’s not all, as BetOnline Poker is throwing more chum in the direction of its mobile players. Exclusive only to players on the Mobile Poker app are daily freerolls where the top 10 finishers will win a ticket to the $1 buy-in daily qualifiers.

In other words, BetOnline Poker’s mobile players can win a seat to the $10K Main Event for free. All that’s required is to finish within the top 10 in one of the daily freerolls and then again in the $1 qualifiers. It may be a tall task, but accomplishing it will certainly separate the sharks from all of the other fish!

Take a look at the Poker Shark Week schedule below that starts on July 21 and runs thru August 4:

Date Time ET Event Buy-In Prize
Daily 8:00-23:00 Shark Week Freerolls Free 10 Seats
Daily 8:00-23:00 Shark Week Qualifiers $1 10 Seats
Aug 4 14:00 Shark Week $10,000 GTD $22 $10,000

Remember that the Freerolls are available only to Mobile Poker app users. If you have yet to check out BetOnline Poker’s mobile app, now may be the time to do so in order to get in on the Freerolls.

It may also be time to open a new account at BetOnline Poker if you haven’t already. The US-friendly site offers a generous Welcome Bonus of 100% up to $1,000, with the minimum required to take advantage of the bonus at only $50.

Players who make that first-time deposit and grab the bonus have a full 30 days to clear the bonus by earning Comp points. Those points are accumulated simply by playing poker at BetOnline.
