888.com (also known as Pacific Poker), has announced a new $100,000 guaranteed poker tournament dubbed the ‘$100,000 Deep Stack Challenge’ to be competitive in the Sunday tournament market. The new tournament will run every Sunday at 19:00 GMT with a $200+20 buy in and $100,000 guaranteed prize pool. This will be a highly competitive event with a starting stack of 10,000 chips and 20 minute blind levels.
“The new $100 000 Deep Stack Challenge is an exciting event for 888poker. Deep stack poker is gaining a lot of popularity in offline poker clubs and casinos, so we decided to bring the format online. More chips, more playtime, less bad luck – a poker players dream!”, said Gareth Edwards, Poker Marketing Director for 888.com.
No matter the size of your bankroll, there are satellites running all week in two strands, giving everyone the chance to play. The entry points are: $10+1, $27.50+2.50, $75+7.50 and $200+20. The ‘1 in 4’ strand sends 1 player through to the next level for every 4 players in each satellite.
Additional satellites run each Sunday, so players can start at the $4.40 level and qualify and play the $100,000 Deep Stack Challenge on the same day. To further lure players to participate is an entry into the $10,000 Warm up Freeroll the following Sunday at 17:00 GMT, giving you two tournaments for the price of one. Registration can be found under the ‘$100,000’ tab in the 888.com poker lobby. Expect some HUGE OVERLAYS on this one!
