Ignition Poker has released the schedule for its $2.5 million guaranteed Super Millions Poker Open starting in just over two weeks on Saturday 15th July.
Online poker players who enjoy their tournaments series are going to be spoilt for choice over the next few months. Americas Cardroom has announced there will be another OSS Cub3d series in August and 888Poker is rumoured to be putting together another Summer Championchips series for around the same time.
However, before those two events get underway, Ignition Poker will be running its Super Millions Poker Open – a rehash of last year´s Summer Millions Poker Open, only with more events than last year, more variety in the schedule and more money up for grabs. The series is also a week longer than last year´s equivalent series.
The Super Million Poker Open Highlights
The Super Million Poker Open gets underway on Saturday 13th July with deepstack, superstack and knockout events, warming players up for a superb second day of the series which includes a heads-up event, a “Crazy Eights” event and a $110,000 guaranteed Sunday Special. Overall there is nearly $250,000 in guaranteed prize money up for grabs over the opening weekend.
The variety in the schedule kicks in from Monday, when the first of eighteen PLO or PLO Hi/Lo events takes place (there is also a Fixed Limit Omaha tournament scheduled for later in the series), plus some novelty NLHE events such as a full ring shootout, an ante-up knockout and a 6-Max hyper-turbo in which players start with 50,000 chips.
The highlights of the second weekend include another $110,000 guaranteed Sunday Special and the first of four “Thousandaire Maker” event – tournaments in which the payout structure is changed to reward the highest finishing players with $1,000 dollars each. The first half of the schedule concludes with a further Sunday Special and a $100,000 guaranteed High Rollers event on Sunday July 30th.
Series Headlined with $300,000 Guaranteed Main Event
Compared to some sites that load the majority of their series guarantees into one big-hitting Main Event, the guarantee for the Super Millions Poker Open Main Event is a relatively modest $300,000. The event takes place on Sunday August 13th at 5:03pm (ET) and has a buy-in of $450.00. Either side of the Main Event, Ignition has included some eye-catching tournaments that players will not want to miss:
