Hardly had I come to the end of the Blowout Series when the “red lance” added a new tab “50/50 Series” to the lobby – we are sharing the details of new tournaments and analyzing the schedule.
50/50 Series at PokerStars: a new series played on the reservation
The series will run on PokerStars from January 31st to February 8th. There are 50 tournaments with buy-ins of $ 50 each and a total guarantee of $ 6M. In addition to Hold’em, there will be PLO, NLO8, HORSE tournaments and 8 games.
This format of the series seems to be original for PS players. In fact, they managed to skate this structure of the series on the European reservation PS.es, where in October 2020 the 30/30 Series was held with 30 tournaments of € 30 and a total guarantee of € 1.5M.
PokerStars 50/50 Series Highlights Overview: Two Million Tournaments and $ 250K Daily Events
The 50/50 Series focuses on two Sunday events.
January 31st at 21:00 Moscow time starts 50/50 Series 03 Sunday Million SE PKO with a $ 50 buy-in and a $ 1M guarantee. By simple calculations it turns out that the guarantee is calculated for 20,000 registrations. Considering that 20,466 registrations were collected in the last Sunday Milion for $ 109, we can say that the organizers are a little reinsured for the 50/50 Series.
The tournament will again be held in the PKO format. $ 23 from buy-in – reward for knocking out an opponent; $ 22.45 is added to the prize pool and $ 4.55 is added to the rake. The levels are 12 minutes long, the blinds are doubled every 4 levels. During the late registration period, up to 3 re-entries can be made. On the first day, you have to play 9 hours and 30 minutes.
