During our current climate consisting of self-isolation and social distancing, people are spending more time at home. Because of this, players are turning to varying forms of entertainment at home, including online poker gaming. Since more players are logging on to online poker sites, platforms are offering more variety, including new and exciting poker tournament gaming. The WPT and PokerStars are just two examples of brands offering poker tournament gaming and this week, players can compete in events with $1 million prize pool guarantees!
Let’s start with the WPT. The WPTSuper 50 has already begun, but players still have time to take part in starting flights. There are two scheduled for today and with only a $55 buy-in, it is expected that players will be logging in to compete. The event is taking place via the World Poker Tour and partypoker.
This event is unique as players have the opportunity to compete in as many flights as they like and then take the largest stack to the final, for those who progress from more than one starting flight. The WPTSuper50 Final Table is set for 9 pm on May 20th.
For online poker provider PokerStars, the brand is currently running the Spring Championship of Online Poker or SCOOP. Today, SCOOP will be running the Super Tuesday event, a no-limit hold’em tournament with a $1,050 buy-in and 8-max format. This event also guarantees $1 million in prize money for players who compete in the medium version of the event.
For those who want to compete in this same event on the low or high end, there are also options. The $109 Mini Super Tuesday offers a $400,000 guaranteed prize pool, so it still has value. For players with larger bankrolls, the $10,300 High Roller is also taking place today, offering up another $1 million in prize money.
