Get in on the iPOPS II Action with William Hill Poker
The $1 million guaranteed iPoker Online Poker Series (iPOPS) II kicked off – but you can still get in on the action through William Hill Poker, as there are four more events still to play for over the next week.
Event #1, a $100+$9 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em Freezeout was played out yesterday, while event #2 – a $40+$4 buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha Six-Max Rebuy and Add-On tournament – kicks off today at 19:00 BST (British Summer Time), when $50,000 is guaranteed in prize money.
The three other events being run by the iPoker Network will take place on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, ending with a $500,000 guaranteed $125+$10 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em Freezeout – also starting at 19:00 BST.
Barcelona Calling for Event #5 Stars
However, event #5 of this fantastic festival of poker has an added twist with the last 27 players being whisked off to beautiful Barcelona to play out to a winner over three live tables at the Gran Casino de Barcelona from June 1 to 3.
Last December’s iPOPS I Live was staged in Prague and saw Sweden’s Tomas Mitell take home $90,550 from the conclusion to the event after he outlasted the 3,383-player field when ultimately beating Frenchwoman Veronique Gourdon in their heads-up battle at the Czech Republic capital city’s Ambassador Casino.
Satellites to iPOPS are still running right now at William Hill Poker with buy-ins starting from just 10¢+1¢, although you’ll have to be quick off the mark as the qualifiers come to an end on Saturday.
iPOPS Live Main Event Super Satellites
But there won’t just be one event running in Barcelona as the iPOPS Live Main Event, as well as side tournaments, will take place over two days, June 2 to 3, and will feature a €700+€70 buy-in for the No-Limit Hold’em Freezeout – and you can be there if you win one of the many €2,200 prize packages up for grabs at Titan Poker and William Hill Poker through their online Super Satellites.
If you are one of the fortunate iPOPS Live satellite winners, here’s what you can look forward to from your all-inclusive package:
- €770 Main Event buy-in (30,000 starting chips)
- €1,000 for three nights’ stay (June 1 to 4) at The Arts Hotel, Barcelona
- €30 towards handling fees
- €400 towards flights and spending
- Invite to the Players’ Party
You can, of course, also buy straight into the Live Main Event, but where’s the fun it that? Erm, well, if you’ve got the cash, go for it!
Super Satellites Still Running
Anyway, the first Super Satellite was played out at the start of the month, but the final one won’t be staged until Thursday, May 17.
Titan Poker’s three Super Satellites take place on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays – all at 20:00 BST. The Sunday and Thursday events, named iPOPS Live A and C Super Satellite, are €80+€8 buy-in Freezeouts, while each Tuesday’s iPOPS Live B Super Satellite is a €50+€5 Rebuy and Add-on tournament. Win one of these promotions and you’ll be on your way to Catalonia for the Main event.
Additionally, Titan Poker have also been hosting a special Mega Satellite promotion, with 10 iPOPS Live prize packages guaranteed. The last of these satellites take place on Sunday, May 20, at 20:00 BST and will feature a €200+€15 buy-in.
