Intertops Poker is hosting three feature tournaments over the coming weeks to celebrate events such as the birth of Oscar Wilde and the Rumble in the Jungle.
Intertops Poker has a reputation for putting on tournaments to celebrate notable dates and anniversaries. Already this year the site has run feature events to celebrate St. Patrick´s Day, Labor Day, and Tax Day; and, among the more tenuous excuses to host a game of poker, the site has also run special events to coincide with the birth of Wild Bill Hickok and the fiftieth anniversary of Woodstock.
Over the next couple of weeks, Intertops Poker is hosting three further celebratory tournaments to mark the birth of Oscar Wilde, the anniversary of the Rumble in the Jungle, and Halloween. Each of the tournaments has a guaranteed prize pool and is supported by one or more satellites in order to make the events accessible to players with all levels of bankroll.
The 165th Birthday of Oscar Wilde
Oscar Wilde was an Irish playwright who charmed Victorian theatergoers at the end of the nineteenth century with plays such as Lady Windermere´s Fan, An Ideal Husband, and The Importance of Being Earnest. Today (October 16th) would have been his 165th birthday, and to celebrate the anniversary of Oscar Wilde´s birth, Intertops Poker is hosting a special $500 guaranteed tournament.
The “Wilde Tournament” is scheduled for 6:15 pm tonight (all times ET) and has a buy-in of $5.50. It´s a typical R&A turbo tournament inasmuch as unlimited re-buys are available during the 60 minutes of late registration, after which the opportunity exists to purchase an add-on. An R&A turbo satellite feeding into the Wilde Tournament is scheduled for 1:05 pm this afternoon with a buy-in of $0.55.
The 45th Anniversary of the Rumble in the Jungle
The Rumble in the Jungle in 1974 is considered to be the best boxing match ever. It saw undisputed world heavyweight champion George Foreman suffer his first loss in forty fights to the massive underdog Muhammed Ali and, although most online poker players will be too young to remember watching the event live, Intertops Poker is hosting a special celebratory tournament.
The Rumble in the Jungle tournament takes place on Wednesday, October 30th at 7:05 pm. The $22.00 buy-in tournament has a $2,000 guaranteed prize pool, and $5 from each buy-in will be allocated as a bounty on each player´s head. Low buy-in KO satellites feeding into the target event start the previous Wednesday – each guaranteeing one seat in the final plus whatever $0.50 bounties you win on the way.
Intertops Poker´s Halloween Treat
Considering Intertops Poker celebrates practically every holiday on the calendar, it´s no surprise to find a Halloween Treat in the schedule for October 31st at 7:15 pm. This $19.80 buy-in event carries a prize pool guarantee of $2,000, and like the Oscar Wilde tournament, it has a re-buy and add-on structure with unlimited re-buys available for the sixty minutes of late registration.
From October 28th, Intertops Poker will be running daily Halloween satellites at 4:05 pm with a buy-in of $2.20. These guarantee a minimum of one seat for the target event; and although the timing of the satellites could have been better to get more players involved, it is worth trying to spin a couple of dollars into an end of month payday by supporting the satellites.
