The summer just got hotter at Ignition Poker as the 2019 Super Millions Poker Open (SMPO) with $4.5 million in guaranteed prizes kicks off this coming weekend.
The online poker festival will run from Saturday, July 20 thru Sunday, August 18 and feature 139 tournaments. Headlining the SMPO is the $400,000 guaranteed Main Event set to take place at 17:19 ET on the last day of the series, the 18th of August.
On the last weekend of the SMPO from Aug. 16-18, prize pools totaling more than $1 million guaranteed will be paid out to winners. That weekend is set to make history as the biggest ever at the Ignition Casino poker room, making it a can’t miss three days of poker action for US players.
Qualifiers Running Now
Players who are fond of winning their seats to huge events via lower buy-in qualifiers are certainly in luck as the Super Millions Poker Open is loaded with ways to grab a seat inexpensively. The qualifiers have already begun and will run thru the final weekend of the SMPO.
Ignition Poker has laid out four different paths to qualify for SMPO events. There is the High Roller’s Path, Grinder’s Path, Sit & Go Path, and via Direct Satellites. Take a look at the image below for more details.
Online poker players on a budget won’t be left out of big guaranteed tournaments during the SMPO as Ignition Poker has taken a page out the book of the World Series of Poker by hosting a Mini Main Event. The buy-in is a more affordable $100 + $9 and the guarantee is still quite large at $100,000. Like the Main Event, the Mini Main Event is also scheduled for Aug. 18.
The summer is a busy time for many with family gatherings to attend and outdoor activities to participate in. Ignition Poker is well aware that players are not always at home and in front of their computers.
That’s not a problem at all at Ignition Poker as the site is equipped for extensive compatibility with mobile devices. Each and every 2019 SMPO tournament, including the Main Event and the Mini Main Event, will be available for play on your cell phone or tablet – which is a huge plus for players on the go.
Another plus is that Ignition Poker has boosted the guarantees on some of its regular weekend MTTs this summer. The guarantee of the weekly High Roller has increased from $75,000 to $125,000, and the $100K GTD Sunday Special has been bumped to $150,000 at the same $150 + $12 entry fee.
