This Weekend’s $1million Big Game Tops the partypoker Weekly News
26 Apr

partypoker’s most recent newsletter reveals that there’s some Big Game fun lined up for the site this weekend, with the return of their $1million guaranteed flagship monthly tournament – and there appears to be plenty more going on besides!

$1million Big Game this Sunday 28th April

Starting with the Big Game, the $5200 buy-in online tournament has switched to a Phased format, meaning there are $530 buy-in 'Phase 1' qualifiers available every evening, kicking off at 19:00 and 21:00 BST.

Not that you’ll have to fork out that much to take your seat, with satellite qualifiers running from just $1.10, a full schedule giving you the chance to potentially snare a massive ROI.

You can find out more about how to get yourself a seat in the Big Game here.

$30million GTD KO Series in May

Looking ahead to next month, the ever-popular KO Series returns with a $30million guarantee.

The PKO format used by partypoker has become a massive hit with players, as has the ‘no-rake’ approach to the bounty element - unrivalled value according to the guys and girls at the red diamond HQ.

Provisional dates for your diary are May 12th – 26th and you can check for updates and schedules here over the next week or two.

Bicknell, Sexton and Jouhkimainen put pen to paper

Well, nobody uses these things anymore of course, but the partypoker trio have all started blogging for their fans and followers, and it’s top quality stuff.

Canada’s Kristen Bicknell charts her entry into the highroller tournament scene by dissecting three hand histories, and the insight into how a great player breaks down the play is well worth reading.

Her fellow Team partypoker pro Joni Jouhkimainen has been globetrotting for a while now and has decided to blog in English now rather than his native Finnish – good news for those of us who are ‘kauheaa muilla kielillä’’!

Mike Sexton, the one President whose tweets don’t cause problems, is also getting in on the blogging action – taking us back to 1984 and the introduction of the great game of PLO at the WSOP. Check out Mike’s couldawouldashoulda bad beat tale.

partypoker LIVE news

From the just-finished to the coming-up-soon, partypoker’s LIVE offerings are making the news again.

Irish eyes are smiling

Over in Dublin, it was a Chinese-Irish win at the Irish Open Main Event, with Galway man Weijie ‘Jervi’ Zheng taking down the title and €300,000 at the partypoker-sponsored series.

SPINS your way to Canada

Meanwhile the LIVE crew are gearing up for the MILLIONS North America, which boasts a $5M GTD showpiece Main Event.

Montreal is the destination and you could be part of it by playing the $10 special edition PP LIVE SPINS games. The $10k top prize would be more than enough to find yourself Canada-bound and you can find out more about the SPINS route here.

Take the PP LIVE Dollars approach to German Grand Prix

Next month sees the Grand Prix Germany Main Event take place, and if you’ve bought your way in with partypoker’s unique currency – PP LIVE dollars – you could be the one who walks off with a big bonus -  a free seat at MILLIONS Europe 2019.

Check out partypoker’s promo page here for how it all works.

OK, that’s it from this week’s partypoker newsletter, with plenty to be getting on with whatever your favourite part of our beautiful game of poker is!
