The November Power Weekend features seven exciting events with over $190,000 in guaranteed prize pools. In addition to a variety of affordable single-day tournaments, this Power Weekend will be showcasing two value-laden multi-day events; the Playground 500 and the Playground 100. Thanks to starting flights and satellites on partypoker, this Sunday is your first chance to get in on the action.
Players can take part in the $100 + $10 Playground 100 through any one (or more) of its seven starting flights. Thanks to its $50,000 prize pool guarantee, many players are sure to fire multiple bullets to take advantage of the unlimited re-entry format. Players are permitted unlimited re-entries until the end of the late registration period at the beginning of level 7 on each Day 1 and can enter multiple starting flights. Players who qualify more than once for Day 2 will resume play with their largest qualifying stack and receive the associated cash prize for any other stacks, which will be forfeited.
An entry to the Playground 100 could cost as little as $10.50 + $0.50 thanks to partypoker. Starting at 4:00pm on Sunday, November 17, the first direct satellite to the Online Day 1 of the Playground 100 will guarantee 10 seats at a buy-in of only $10.50 + $0.50. Following at 5:00pm, the final satellite to the Playground 100 also guarantees 10 seats, this time at a buy-in of $21 + $1. The Online Day 1 runs at 7:00pm and will continue until 10% of the starting field remains. Any player who survives until that point will be in the money and join the other Day 2 qualifiers at Playground on Sunday, November 24 at 3:00pm to play until there is a winner.
The $500 + $50 Playground 500, the marquee event of this Power Weekend, will also have two direct satellites prior to its Online Day 1 on Sunday. With a guaranteed prize pool of $100,000, expect a big turnout for each of the four starting flights. The Playground 500 will follow the familiar unlimited re-entry format, which allows players unlimited re-entries until the end of the late registration period on each Day 1 at the beginning of level 9. Players can enter multiple Day 1s, but only the largest qualifying stack can be used on Day 2; all others will be forfeited.
Your first chance to get in on the Playground 500 at a big discount arrives on Sunday at 1:00pm, when the first of two direct satellites to the Online Day 1 kicks off on partypoker. For a buy-in of only $52.50 + $2.50, this satellite guarantees at least five seats. At 2:00pm, the final direct satellite gets underway, this time at a buy-in of $104.50 + $4.50 but also with a five-seat guarantee. The online action in the Playground 500 starts at 4:00pm and will play for 14 levels, just like the live flights. Players who survive the Online Day 1 with chips will be merged with the live qualifiers and resume play for Day 2 on Saturday, November 23 at 3:00pm. Day 2 will run for 10 levels, and Day 3 will play until there is a winner.
Thanks to partypoker, you can take advantage of some outstanding value and grind your way to a potentially huge score, all in the comfort of your own home. So whether you want to take a shot at the Playground 100, Playground 500 or both, Sunday is your day to play!
