888.com subsidiary Pacific Poker has launched a new $100 000 guaranteed poker tournament branded the "$100 000 Deep Stack Challenge" to compete in the tough Sunday tournament field.
The new poker tournament runs every Sunday at 19:00 GMT with a $200+20 buy-in and $100 000 guaranteed prize pool. With a starting stack of 10 000 chips and generous 20 minute blind levels this is a highly competitive deep stack poker event.
With satellites running all week in two strands, there is an entry point to suit most bankroll sizes. The "1 in 3" strand sends 1 player through to the next level for every 3 players in each satellite. The entry points are; $10+1, $27.50+2.50, $75+7.50 and $200+20 Deep Stack Challenge. The "1 in 4" strand sends 1 player through to the next level for every 4 players in each satellite. The entry points are; $4+0.40, $15+1, $55+5 and $200+20 Deep Stack Challenge. Left over money is paid to second place onwards at all levels.
Extra satellites run each Sunday, so players can start at the $4.40 level and qualify all the way through to the $100 000 Deep Stack Challenge on the same day.
Added inducements to participate are offered to every entrant in the shape of a an entry into the company's $10 000 Warm-up Freeroll the following Sunday at 17:00 GMT, in a 'two tournaments for the price' incentive. Registration can be found under the '$100 000' tab in the 888poker lobby.
Gareth Edwards, Poker Marketing Director for 888.com, said "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!"
