If right in the very same moment Ivan "vandir4rek" Soshnikov took down the Spring Championship of Online Poker main event, you thought that it would be kind of nice to participate to something similar but with affordable buy ins – then, boy do we have some good news for you!
On Friday 23.05, partypoker is launching "PokerFest: Micro Turbo Edition", a series of 42 low buy-in events featuring a total guarantee of $115,000.
The series will run until June 1 with a very wide selection of turbo events including Texas hold'em tournaments, PLO8, Omaha, bounty tournaments and many more.
Created to be a sort of heaven-on-earth for recreational players, partypoker's PokerFest: Micro Turbo Edition is a 'replica' of the room's traditional PokerFest series, with a 'low buy in' twist.
To join the action and play for a share of the $115,000 guarantee split over 42 events, players will in fact have to deal with buy ins starting from as little as $1 and going all the way up to $50 for the series' most 'exclusive' tournament.
Among the top events included in the PokerFest: Micro Turbo Edition schedule, a $20 buy in main event with a $25,000 guarantee kicking in on June 1, a $50 'high roller' event featuring a $50,000 guarantee on Sunday, May 25, and a $5 event with a tasty $10,000 guarantee running alongside the main event.
As many of the tournaments included in the series are expected to end with an overlay, my suggestion is to carefully go through the full list of events and make sure you update your personal calendar writing down all the ones you want to play.
How to qualify for free?
If $1 is a buy in you can't afford, or if you simply like competition so much that if you only could you would do satellites to decide pretty much anything in your life - partypoker thought about a nice little thing to keep you entertained.
Together with its 'mini-series', partypoker launched also a brand new mission which gives everyone who completes it a FREE 10T$ to join any of the events in the PokerFest: Micro Turbo Edition schedule.
