Two weeks of valuable poker tournaments get underway on Sunday when the cards go into the air for the $2 million guaranteed Carbon Online Poker Series.
A truly spectacular festival of online poker tournaments gets underway this coming Sunday at 2.55pm, when the cards go into the air for the first of seventy-six events in the $2 million guaranteed Carbon Online Poker Series (OPS).
Over the next fourteen days, thousands of players will battle in out on the virtual baize in a wide variety of poker formats and disciplines, with the ultimate aim of bagging a major prize in one of the five Carbon OPS Main Events.
Everybody is welcome to participate in the Carbon OPS, with buy-ins for the tournaments ranging from $11.00 to $530.00, and a comprehensive satellite schedule starting at freeroll level for qualifying players.
A Wide Variety of Formats and Disciplines
The schedule for the Carbon OPS reveals a wide variety of formats and disciplines. NL Texas Hold´em Poker tournaments will be hosted in deep, super-deep, mega-stack and mega-ante formats, played on 6-Max, 8-Max and full tables, at regular or Turbo speeds and include events with re-buys, mega add-ons and bounties on other players´ heads.
Players who favor disciplines other than NL Texas Hold´em Poker will not be disappointed with the range of Omaha tournaments – including NL Omaha, PL Omaha, NL Omaha Hi/Lo and PL Omaha Hi/Lo – and there are no fewer than five HORSE mixed-game poker tournaments scheduled within the two weeks of action.
Five Main Events Headline the Series
The Carbon OPS is unique inasmuch as it headlines with five Main Events. All five Main Events will be played on Sunday 22 February, with three starting at 4.00pm and the other two at hourly intervals. The purpose of having five Main Events is so that players of all bankrolls can get involved in the headline tournaments, so each has its own buy-in and guarantee:
- 4.00pm – OPS #71 – Buy-in $215.00 – Guarantee $250,000
- 4.00pm – OPS #72 – Buy-in $11.00 – Guarantee $10,000
- 4.00pm – OPS #73 – Buy-in $33.00 – Guarantee $50,000
- 5.00pm – OPS #74 – Buy-in $530.00 – Guarantee $75,000
- 6.00pm – OPS #75 – Buy-in $109.00 – Guarantee $65,000
Main Event Freeroll Giveaway
Even though players can get involved in a Main Event for as little as $11.00, Carbon Poker is hosting a Main Event Freeroll on February 21 – the day before the Main Events – at 4.00pm. The top fifty players in the freeroll tournament will be awarded seats in the $250,000 guaranteed Main Event (OPS #71) with a chance of picking up a minimum of $50,000 for winning the event.
To qualify for the Main Event Freeroll Giveaway, players have to earn 100 Player Points before 3.55pm on the day of the freeroll tournament – Player Points being awarded at the rate of 15 per dollar raked at cash game tables or paid in tournament entry fees. It is not a big ask to gain entry to the Main Event Freeroll Giveaway, so expect this to be a very popular tournament considering the valuable prize that is at stake.
Don´t Miss the Saturday Mega-Satellite
Satellites are currently running for all the major events in the Carbon Poker OPS, but one you should definitely mark in your diaries is this Saturday´s mega-satellite into OPS #2. The second event in Carbon Poker´s OPS is a NL Texas Hold´em Poker tournament with a guaranteed prize pool of $150,000. It will be played on Sunday 8 February at 4.00pm and has a buy-in of $215.00. However, if you finish in one of the top 40 places in Saturday´s mega-satellite, you will have won your seat for just $11.00!
A full list of qualifiers into the Carbon OPS events can be found under the satellite tab in the Carbon Poker client – some having valuable overlays!
