WPN has confirmed its next OSS Cub3d series will take place over four weeks between 5th August and 2nd September. The series will consist of more than 160 tournaments – three of which will have million dollar guarantees – plus an online Cage cash game event with a buy-in of $5,100.
There was some fantastic news for player at Americas Cardroom and Black Chip Poker earlier today when the Winning Poker Network (WPN) released the schedule for its next OSS Cub3d series. The series starts on 5th August with the Mini Online Super Series, and is followed by the Online Super Series (from 12th August) and the Bigger Online Super Series (from 26th August).
As usual there is an excellent range of online poker formats and disciplines to test players´ skills. The schedule consists of many different varieties of NL Hold´em, Omaha and Stud Poker – including Knockout, Hyper-Turbo and Megastack events. Tournament buy-ins start from just $0.06 and there will be a comprehensive satellite schedule to encourage players to qualify for higher buy-in events.
More than $10 Million Guaranteed in Prize Money
Although the series has its usual mixture of mini buy-in and bigger buy-in tournaments, the ones that catch the eye are the three million dollar guaranteed events scheduled for August 26th and September 2nd (two million dollar events scheduled for this day). The buy-ins for the three big tournaments range from $265 to $2,100 and all three will undoubtedly be incredibly well-supported.
In addition to the three eye-catching events, a further twenty-six tournaments have guaranteed six-figure prize pools, starting with the third event of the opening day (buy-in $50) and peppering the schedule throughout the twenty-nine days of action. One special tournament of note during the opening week is the MOSS Main Event which carries a $300,000 guarantee for a buy-in of just $88.
Will You be Brave Enough to Enter the Cage?
One of the most exciting events in the OSS Cub3d schedule is the $5,100 buy-in Cage event. The Cage is a five-hour 6-Max cash game with blinds and antes that increase each hour and from which players cannot leave unless they bust. Players start with a chip stack of 5,000 chips – each one worth $1.00 – and blinds starting at 10/20 (ante 2) rising to 50/100 (ante 10) by the end of the game.
The OSS Cub3d Cage Event takes place on Wednesday August 29th at 7:00pm (ET) and the Network will be supporting the event with several promotions in order to encourage players to take part. As usual, players can try their luck on the “Spin to Get In” game (with stakes starting at one cent), or – more realistically – players can try to win their seat via a mega-satellite on Sunday August 12th at 5:00pm (ET) guaranteeing ten seats in the target event (the buy-in for the mega-satellite is $215).
Alternatively, Win a Package to a Live Cage Event
Over the weekends of 29th/30th September and 1st/2nd December, the Winning Poker Network will be hosting Live Cage events at the Taormina Hotel in Costa Rica. These differ from the online version of the Cage inasmuch as levels last two hours each and just two levels are played each day. Packages can be won to either of the live events in the Network´s Beast/Sit N Crush Sunday tournaments, or by topping one of three leaderboard competitions during the OSS Cub3d series.
The packages are well worth winning as they include not only the buy-ins for the Live Cage events, but also your accommodation at the hotel and $1,000 cash to spend in Costa Rica when you arrive. Naturally, you are going to have to be a darned good player to top one of the three OSS Cub3d leaderboard competitions, but will you be able to translate your skills to a cash game environment? And, if you can, will you be brave enough to enter the Live Cage in Costa Rica?
