The last weekend of the holiday season is packed full of massive online poker tournaments and opportunities to escape to somewhere warmer.
The period between the 5th and 7th of January is celebrated in different ways depending on where you live. While some countries celebrate Twelfth Night, the Epiphany, Los Reyes, or Kings; others are celebrating Christmas based on the Julian calendar – the calendar that existed at the time Jesus of Nazareth was born. Happy Christmas to you if you live in one of these countries.
Regardless of your location, there is a cracking weekend coming up on the virtual felt due to a couple of big tournament series reaching their climaxes, plus several other sites hosting qualifiers to live poker events in the Caribbean and Central America. So, whatever plans you have for the final weekend of the festive season, make sure they include some time at your favorite online poker site.
PokerStars: Winter Series Reaches its Climax
There is no doubt that PokerStars wins the crown for having the most money up for grabs this weekend. In addition to four Winter Series Main Events with buy-ins ranging from $2.20 to $2,100 and guarantees totaling $3.85 million, this Sunday also sees the conclusion of the four phased tournaments worth another $3.5 million. It´s not too late to qualify for either of these events if you [geolink href=”https://www.pokernewsreport.com/pokerstars”]visit PokerStars today[/geolink].
Party Poker: The Christmas Freeze Comes to an End
Unfortunately for players suffering in sub-zero temperatures, the end of the Winter Freeze is Party Poker´s holiday tournament series reaching its climax rather than warmer weather on the way. The series may not have the big guarantees of PokerStars´ Winter Series, but the higher buy-in events are more accessible for players with limited bankrolls.

Ignition Poker: New Year´s Mini Series Draws to a Close
Players in the US are not devoid of opportunities to bring the festive season to a profitable end, as Sunday sees the conclusion of Ignition Poker´s Festival of Felt. There are four big tournaments scheduled for the final day of the New Year´s Mini Series, with dozens of low buy-in mega-satellites being [geolink href=”https://www.pokernewsreport.com/ignition-poker”]hosted by Ignition Poker[/geolink] to give players the opportunity to win seats for pennies on the dollar.
Intertops Poker: Three Kings on the Beach Event
Although it may be too late to win a package to PokerStars´ Caribbean Adventure, it is not too late to win a trip to a live event later in the year if you [geolink href=”https://www.pokernewsreport.com/intertops-poker”]play at Intertops Poker[/geolink]. This coming Sunday, the site is hosting a “Three Kings on the Beach” event guaranteeing one package to the WSOPC Caribbean in March. The buy-in for the tournament is $110, with satellites feeding into the target event from $2.20.
Americas Cardroom: Another Chance to Qualify for a Live Cage Event
[geolink href=”https://www.pokernewsreport.com/americas-cardroom”]Americas Cardroom[/geolink] has scheduled six Live Cage events in Costa Rica this year, so you don´t necessarily have to take advantage of the next event between January 25th and 28th if you win a package in this Sunday´s $55.00 buy-in qualifier. However, with so much action going on elsewhere in the online poker world, this weekend´s qualifier may represent your best chance to book a seat for later in the year.
Plenty of Opportunities Elsewhere
Although the promotions features above represent the best opportunities to finish the festive season in profit, they are not the only ones. 888Poker´s [geolink href=”https://www.pokernewsreport.com/win-your-share-of-the-800000-winter-bonanza-at-888poker-22978″]$800,000 Winter Bonanza[/geolink] is in full swing, while players at [geolink href=”https://www.pokernewsreport.com/betonline-poker”]BetOnline Poker[/geolink] will qualify for a $10,000 freeroll tournament on Sunday if they made a cryptocurrency deposit in their accounts before midnight on New Year´s Eve.
Wherever you choose to play, we hope you enjoy the very best of luck.
