Next month, online poker players will have access to a whole new series of tournaments through 888poker. The ChampionChip Games will take place from August 8 to 16 and will provide access to 25 events. Most of the tournaments are named after sports games, which makes things a bit more interesting.
Each day of the series, a tournament will take place at 6 p.m., 6:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. Buy-ins will start at $ 2.20 and go up to $ 33. This makes the series affordable for all players, regardless of your bankroll size.
Details of the new series
The new ChampionChip Games series will not be a trivial matter. Players will have access to multiple formats, to keep the schedule exciting. Find pot-limit Omaha, rebuys, deep-stack events, progressive knockouts, and more.
The series kicks off with Event # 1, the $ 30,000 Opening Ceremony. The buy-in for this event is only $ 33. If you’re looking for something more affordable, skip to Event # 2, a High Jump (R&A) tournament with a $ 7,500 prize pool and $ 5.50 buy-in.
888poker events are based on exciting sports like taekwondo, fencing, sailing, swimming, skateboarding and rock climbing. Find various sports games in each title as well as variations like PKO, Deepstacks, 6-Max, and 8-Max options.
Main event action
The Championship Games Main Event will be a multi-day tournament and the largest in the program. The prize pool guarantee is $ 500,000 and that’s easily more than all the other events, even combined!
The buy-in is only $ 50, so we should see a huge turnout for the tournament. Main Event Day 1 started on July 18 and will run until August 15. There is ample time for online poker players to earn a place in the competition.
Day 2 will start at 6:00 p.m. BST on August 16. Players have the option to participate in more than Day 1, but only the largest stack will advance to Day 2 if you are able to progress more than once.
