partypoker Announces the $2.7 Million Monster Series
partypoker announced today it is to run its popular low-to-mid-stakes online festival Monster Series from Apr. 29 through May 6.
The second edition of Monster Series features a total of 41 numbered events and a total of 123 different tournaments with buy-ins ranging from $0.44 up to $33 and combined guarantees of $2.7 million.
The $2.7 million guaranteed Monster Series has been streamlined from the last time partypoker ran the series so that tournaments are more focused on formats that partypoker’s players find most appealing. Tournaments will be played as no-limit hold’em on six-handed and eight-handed tables and six-handed and eight-handed progressive knockout events will feature a mix of regular, fast and turbo structured blinds.
