Win Big for Under a Dollar in Common Cents at PokerStars
It seems the entire poker world is focused on the high buy-in events and the big winners playing at the World Series of Poker like they do every summer.
While this is indeed the case, it doesn't mean everyone has forgotten about the "common" player that may not have a huge bankroll and wants a chance to play for huge money without much risk.
Our friends at PokerStars have just what the doctor ordered with the Common Cents festival in full swing from June 24 to July 1.
The festival features 23 action-packed evens with combined guarantees of almost $300,000. The best part is that every single tournament costs less than $1 to enter, hence the series name Common Cents.
The festival kicked off with Ukraine's "denykz" outlasting a massive field of 72,479 entrants to win the Common Cents 01: $0.01 NLHE [Kickoff], $100K Gtd for $5,109. You did the math right, there was almost $100,000 in overlay in this tournament.
Don't worry if you missed some of the opening events. The action heats up over the weekend when the festival wraps up with seven action-packed tournaments, six of which feature five-figure guaranteed prize pools.
Perhaps the tournament with the most value will be the Common Cents 22: $0.99 NLHE [Main Event], $25K Gtd on Sunday, July 1, where for under a dollar you have a chance to grab a big payday with at least $25,000 guaranteed in payouts.
