Ignition Poker to Host $250,000 GTD Thanksgiving TournamentPosted on
The season of giving thanks is almost upon us and Ignition Poker is celebrating the holiday by hosting a massive $250,000 guaranteed tournament.
The special event will be held on Sunday, November 25 at 5:00 p.m. ET. That’s the Sunday following Thanksgiving, allowing players plenty of time to spend Thanksgiving Day with family and gorge on turkey, ham, stuffing, potatoes, and pumpkin pie.
Ignition Poker players will also have plenty of time to win a seat to the $250K GTD tourney at a fraction of the $300 + $25 buy-in. The US-friendly poker site has lined up several ways for players to secure a seat starting for as little as $7.70
Ways to Qualify
Of course, a direct buy-in for $325 is always an option. But if that entry fee is a bit too pricey, then choose between any one of three separate paths to win your seat to this must-play $250,000 guaranteed event.
There is a Sit & Go path, a Direct Satellite route, or a Scheduled Tournament path available to players. The Sit & Gos run all day, every day and are priced at $11 for the Quarterfinal and $60 for the Semifinal.
Direct Satellites come in a wide range of buy-ins from $11 to $44 and are held nightly and on weekend afternoons. Check the Ignition Poker tournament lobby for the entry fee and time that best fits your budget and schedule.
The Scheduled Tournament path is the least expensive way to go with $7.70 Cheap Seats held nightly at 19:00 ET. Winners of that event will progress to a $44 Satellite also held nightly, but at 21:00 ET. There is also a “one last chance” Cheap Seat and Satellite in the afternoon of Nov. 25 just prior to the $250K GTD that kicks off at 5:00 p.m.
The qualifiers are going on now so it’s just a matter of selecting the path or route that works for you. Keep in mind that each player can only win one entry.
Ignition Poker Promos
There are several other valuable promotions currently running at Ignition Poker. It’s good to be aware of such promos that can add cash to your bankroll.
For instance, the Bad Beat Bonus can put up to $1,000 in your pockets. If you happen to lose a hand with at least a full house of aces over kings on the Texas Hold’em cash game tables with both of your hole cards in play, you’ll win 100 times the amount of the big blind.
Then there’s the Royal Flush Bonus. Using both your hole cards, connect for a royal flush on the Texas Hold’em cash game tables at Ignition Poker and you’ll win 50 times the big blind up to $200.
For both the Bad Beat Bonus and Royal Flush Bonus, it’s up to you to claim your prize money by submitting the hand and table number to firstname.lastname@example.org. You have 48 hours after the hand occurs in which to send in your claim for the bonus cash.
Players who have yet to play at Ignition Poker can take advantage of a huge bonus as well. The Welcome Bonus is 100% up to $1,000 on the poker side. Those who enjoy online casino action can get another 100% up to $1,000 in the Ignition Casino.
