The 105 event series runs from Saturday 15th July until Sunday 13th August and includes a wide range of formats and disciplines to test the poker skills of every online player.
With buy-ins starting from just $5.50, there is something for everyone in the tournament series. Players hoping for a big win for a small investment should check out the satellites that have just started running at Ignition Poker. You could win a seat in the $300,000 guaranteed Super Millions Poker Open Main Event from as little as $1.00.
Series Kicks Off in Style and Just Gets Better
Unlike some online poker series, in which the most valuable events are shuffled to the back of the series, there are tournaments with worthwhile prize money running throughout the four weeks of action. The opening weekend sees nearly $¼ million guaranteed in prize money divided over nine events including a $110,000 guaranteed “SMPO Special”.
The midweek action is not to be sniffed at either. Three events are scheduled for each midweek evening with worthwhile guarantees and plenty of variety on offer. There are knockouts, shootouts and deepstack hyper turbos running almost every night, with a good selection of Omaha tournaments thrown into the mix.
Watch out during the second weekend for the first of a series of “Thousandaire Maker” tournaments. These are relatively new to Ignition Poker and reward players who cash in the events with $1,000 each. There are also “Hundredaire Maker” tournaments with much smaller buy-ins, giving players with smaller bankrolls the chance to experience a unique endgame.
Sunday 13th August is a Day Not to Miss
Undoubtedly the tournament every player will want to cash in is the Super Millions Poker Open Main Event. The feature tournament gets underway at 5:00pm (ET) on Sunday 13th August and has a direct buy-in of $425.00 + $25.00. With the likely first prize in excess of $50,000, and a host of cheap qualifying opportunities, this is going to be a really popular event.
Either side of the Main Event, Ignition Poker has scheduled some tournaments that will definitely keep multitablers occupied. A Mini Main Event with a $75.00 + $7.00 buy-in gets underway two hours before the feature event, followed by another SMPO Special with a $110,000 guarantee one hour before the Main Event starts.
While the Main Event is in progress, three further tournaments get underway – a Second Chance event at 6:00pm (all times ET) for players who get knocked out of the Main Event during the early levels, a $20,000 guarantee knockout event (7:00pm) and a low buy-in “Wrap Up” event at 8:00pm. For sure, Sunday 13th August is a day not to miss at Ignition Poker.
