Can we count on to see extra huge ensures for small buy-ins because the winter nights attract?
In a 12 months of large on-line collection and stay festivals making their debut on the digital felt, PokerStars considerably quietly held The Greatest $55 final month. A Part model of the Huge $55 which had a $1 million assure.
20,551 entries in complete (2,137 making Part 2) created a prize pool of $1,027,550. The eventual winner obtained $150,011.95 for his or her $55 parlay.
They’re doing it once more this month and have actually upped the ante. The Greatest $55 has already began working Part legs for the occasion on December 21 and this time the assure is $2 million. Meaning there must be 40,000 entries within the Part 1s this time round and that would go away one thing within the area of $300,000 to the winner.
Sizzling off the heels of Micro Hundreds of thousands and following a 12 months the place the poker neighborhood might have had their fill of excessive stakes festivals, it seems like we’d see extra giant ensures for comparatively small buy-ins from PokerStars.
One other occasion which considerably went beneath the radar when it comes to huge promotion was final weekend’s Sunday Million, which was not solely a PKO but in addition again on the $215 worth level with a $2.5 million assure, which it simply beat with 12,977 entries. Might this be an everyday factor for the occasion and might we count on to see extra assure will increase from operators generally because the Winter nights attract?
