Twelve Days of Turbos at Ignition Poker

Posted on by Roy Smith

Twelve Days of Turbos at Ignition PokerIgnition Poker is hosting a special fifty-event series of turbo, super-turbo and hyper-turbo tournaments from Saturday 3rd to Wednesday 13th December.

Some people will look at their calendars tomorrow and be either excited or relieved there are only twenty-four shopping days until Christmas. Players at Ignition Poker will look at their calendars tomorrow and think “Great. Just one day left until the start of the Twelve Days of Turbos”. That´s right. Christmas is coming early this year at Ignition Poker (review here), and it promises to be a treat.

The “Twelve Days of Turbos” is a fast-paced tournament series featuring a good mix of festive formats. Players can feast on everything from 6-Max events to Super-Turbo events, and from Heads-Up events to Ante-Up events. There are also Knockout tournaments and Deep Stack tournaments among the stocking fillers, as well as a sprinkling of Pot Limit Omaha events to satisfy NL Hold´em Scrooges.

Generous Guarantees in Each Event

They say that Christmas is the time of giving, and Ignition Poker certainly seems to be in a generous mood this Christmas. The fifty events in the Twelve Days of Turbos are guaranteed in total for more than $1 million, with nearly $100,000 up for grabs over the opening weekend of the series, plus an extra $12,000 added to the guarantees for the site´s weekly feature tournament each Sunday.

As we move into Monday, four events are scheduled for each evening of the week, starting at 8:12pm (ET) and then every hour at twelve minutes past the hour. There is also a “twelve” theme attached to buy-ins for the tournaments – starting at $12.00 + $1.20 – and, in many of the events, players start with 12,000 chips. Also, watch out for Event #12 – a heads-up event – as there is no late registration.

Ignition Poker Serves Up Two Main Events

The second weekend of the series (9th/10th December) is the one that will undoubtedly be the most popular, as there are two Main Events scheduled for Sunday 10th December. The first – an $82.00 buy-in “Mini Main Event” – gets underway at 3:12pm, with the $450.00 buy-in Main Event starting two hours later. The guarantees for the two Main Events are $40,000 and $200,000 respectively.

Unlike most Christmases, the Twelve Days of Turbos goes out with a bang rather than a whimper. The final three days of the series are packed full of valuable events, and although the buy-ins for most of them are a bit pricey, there are some fantastic opportunities to finish the year with a big win – especially as all the events in the series are supported by a comprehensive satellite schedule.

Plenty of Action Going on at Ignition Poker

As well as having the opportunity to qualify in advance for the feature events in the “Twelve Days of Turbo”, if you visit Ignition Poker today you will also be able to try Ignition Poker´s new Jackpot games. The three-handed, hyper-turbo Sit & Go games, in which you can win a prize of up to 1,200x the buy-in, were added to the poker client at the beginning of the month with buy-ins between $3.00 and $30.00.

The Jackpot games have proved particularly popular among regular Sit & Go players as you can play the Jackpot games at the same time as regular Sit & Go games – which are normally limited to four games at a time. This means if you are clearing the Ignition Poker bonus or saving your Player Points to exchange for tournament entry tickets, you will be able to earn points twice as fast – just in time for the Twelve Days of Turbos series.
