WPN´s OSS Cub3d Off to a Cracking Start

OSS CUBED at WPNThe Winning Poker Network´s OSS Cub3d series has flown out of the traps – the first twelve events in the series beating their guarantees by more than 70%.

Back in July, the Winning Poker Network announced it would be hosting its most ambitious tournament series yetOSS Cub3d. The series consists of 47 low buy-in tournaments (the “Mini” Online Super Series or “MOSS”), followed by 77 regular buy-in tournaments (the Online Super Series or “OSS”), and concludes with 17 high buy-in tournaments (the “Bigger” Online Super Series or “BOSS”).

In total, the guaranteed prize pools for the 141 tournaments amounts to more than $6.7 million. However, based on the way the first leg of the series has started – with the first twelve events in the Mini Online Super Series smashing their guarantees – the total amount paid in prize money by the end of OSS Cub3d could well exceed $10 million.

What a First Couple of Days for MOSS!

When the first event of the Mini Online Super Series got underway on Sunday, there was little indication of the storm that was to follow. 5,761 players ponied up the $5.50 buy-in for the opening Deepstack NLHE tournament, beating the $20,000 guarantee by $8,805 (44%) – a fairly normal outcome for a Sunday afternoon tournament on the Winning Poker Network.

However, the second event surpassed all expectations. The $55.00 buy-in for the $150,000 guaranteed NLHE tournament was a quarter of that for the Network´s regular “Sunday Special”, yet the tournament smashed its guarantee by $78,500 – and there was more to come. By the end of Sunday night, the seven events played in the Mini Online Super Series had beaten their guarantees by an average of 71%.

Yesterday – rather than the storm of action subsiding – it continued to pour. All five tournaments in yesterday´s schedule beat their guarantees by 50% or more, with Event #9 – a $22.00 buy-in Deepstack NLHE tournament – attracting a staggering 3,166 entries. Not bad for a Monday night! The twelve events played in the Mini Online Super Series to date were guaranteed for $356,000. They paid $611,841.

Expect More of the Same Today

Today´s six-event schedule gives Omaha players their first opportunities to shine. The action in the Mini Online Super Series gets underway at 3:00pm (all times ET) with a $5.50 buy-in PL Omaha tournament guaranteed for $6,000. Then it is the turn of the micro-stakes players with a $0.28 buy-in 4-Max NLHE tournament at 5:00pm, followed by a regular $7.70 buy-in NLHE tournament at 6:30pm.

The feature event of the day is an $11.00 buy-in NLHE tournament guaranteed for $15,000 at 8:00pm, followed by another event with a four-card format – a $1,000 guaranteed No Limit Omaha Hi/Lo 6-Max tournament at 9:00pm. The action in today´s MOSS schedule concludes with a $1.05 buy-in Hyper Megastack NLHE tournament at 10:15pm.

Looking ahead to the rest of the week, a $50,000 guaranteed 8-Max tournament is scheduled for Wednesday, there is a 7 Card Stud tournament scheduled for Friday, and the highlight of the week´s action is the $250,000 guaranteed MOSS Main Event on Sunday. There is also a fully satellite schedule in progress for the Online Super Series which gets underway on Wednesday August 23rd.
