Can we count on to see extra large ensures for small buy-ins because the winter nights attract?
In a yr of huge on-line sequence and reside festivals making their debut on the digital felt, PokerStars considerably quietly held The Biggest $55 final month. A Phase model of the Big $55 which had a $1 million assure.
20,551 entries in whole (2,137 making Phase 2) created a prize pool of $1,027,550. The eventual winner obtained $150,011.95 for his or her $55 parlay.
They are doing it once more this month and have actually upped the ante. The Biggest $55 has already began operating Phase legs for the occasion on December 21 and this time the assure is $2 million. That means there must be 40,000 entries within the Phase 1s this time round and that would depart one thing within the area of $300,000 to the winner.
Hot off the heels of Micro Millions and following a yr the place the poker group might have had their fill of excessive stakes festivals, it appears to be like like we would see extra giant ensures for comparatively small buy-ins from PokerStars.
Another occasion which considerably went below the radar by way of large 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. Could this be an everyday factor for the occasion and may we count on to see extra assure will increase from operators on the whole because the Winter nights attract?
