Sunday to be a Historic Day for Online Poker in the US

Winning Poker Network (WPN)This coming Sunday, there will be more than $3 million dollars up for grabs in prize money and tournament entries at sites on the Winning Poker Network.

This coming Sunday, the Winning Poker Network hosts the climax to its OSS Cub3d tournament series. The day´s events include two $1 million guaranteed tournaments and twelve further feature tournaments with combined guaranteed prize pools in excess of $600,000. In addition to the feature events, the Network´s regular schedule offers hundreds of thousands of dollars in prize money, plus there will be multiple satellite qualifiers paying hundreds of tournament entries.

The total amount paid out during the day´s events will exceed $3 million – amounts not seen by online poker players in the US since Black Friday in 2011. Hopefully, should the ambitious schedule of events be successful, it will not be the last time the Winning Poker Network hosts such a valuable day of tournament action; but whatever happens it will be a historic day for online poker in the US and a very memorable day for winning online poker players.

Two Million Dollar Events within Two Hours

Sunday´s headline-grabbing events will undoubtedly be the two Million Dollar Sunday tournaments starting at 1:00pm and 3:00pm (all times ET). These have buy-ins of $2,100 and $540 respectively and are supported by a huge range of satellites to help players qualify as cheaply as possible. After last week´s record-breaking 4,368 entries for the million dollar guaranteed OSS Main Event, it is possible that both million dollar guarantees will be smashed out of the park.

Surrounding the two headline events, the twelve further feature events in the OSS Cub3d series are sure to be well supported. These range in value from the low buy-in “Big10” events to three tournaments with $215 buy-ins – including a $60,000 guaranteed PL Omaha “special” event – between them adding more than $600,000 to the prize money available on the day. Dozens more tournaments in the Network´s regular Sunday schedule bring the cash value of the day´s action close to $3 million.

Some Big Satellites to Look Out For

Each of the $1 million guaranteed tournaments and the higher buy-in OSS tournaments have multiple satellites feeding into them, but the key ones to look out for on Sunday include the BOSS Main Event Mega-Satellite at 9:30am (feeding into the first Million Dollar Sunday event) and the Million Dollar Mega-Satellite at 11:30am (feeding into the second Million Dollar Sunday event). Between them, the two Mega-Satellites offer more than $120,000 of tournament entry tickets as prizes.

Other satellites to look out for include the “Deadline” and “Hyper” MDS satellites that will be running every fifteen minutes under the end of late registration and – away from the OSS Cub3d events – there are two $55.00 buy-in satellites scheduled for 6:00pm and 8:00pm guaranteeing a minimum of fourteen seats into next Wednesday´s $1,000 buy-in five-hour “Cage” cash game. The total value of the satellites surpasses $150,000, bringing the total amount that can be won on the day to well past $3 million.

The Winning Poker Network is not a US-Exclusive Network

Although next Sunday will be a historic day for online poker in the US, the events taking place across the Winning Poker Network are not exclusive to US players.
