Absolute Poker (http://www.AbsolutePoker.com) one of the world’s largest online poker sites, has announced that this Saturday’s $150 entry tournaments will now have a guaranteed prize pool of at lease $100,000. This is the largest tournament that the site has hosted to date, and will award the first place finisher a minimum prize of $25,000. The tournament format is No Limit Texas Holdem, the same game that is played in the annual World Series of Poker.
“We are very excited to be offering this large a prize pool to our members,” said Gian Perroni, poker room manager for Absolute Poker. “We have been adding $10,000 every week to this tournaments’ prize pool, a practice that we will resume in the New Year, and we will soon see this tournament offering more than a quarter of a million dollars. This adds nicely to our current other guaranteed tournaments that total close to a million dollars every month.”
The tournament begins at 4:30 p.m. EST, Saturday, December 17, and Absolute Poker is running satellite tournaments for entry into this event several times every day. Players can win entry into the main, $100,000 event for as little as $3 by placing among the top finishers in these satellites. The main event will be limited to the first 2,000 entrants. The same tournament for a minimum $100,000 will be held on each subsequent Saturday at the same time.
