This coming weekend is a massive one for online poker tournament specialists who are spoiled for choice when it comes to playing some value-packed events. We’ve chosen a trio of tournaments that are must-play if you love the thrill of tournament poker. Here they are.
$75,000 Guaranteed in the 888Millions Mini Main Event<
888poker’s biggest-ever online poker series is drawing to a close and one of the final events is an absolute cracker. The 888Millions Mini Main Event gets underway at 7:30 p.m. CET on October 11 and is going to be massive.
There’s a juicy $75,000 guarantee on the prize pool despite the buy-in only weighing in at $55.
Second chance rebuys are available for the first 210-minutes, which is when late registration slams shut. Four rebuys are allowed when your chip stack reads a big fat zero.
Everyone starts with 50,000 chips and plays to a 12-minute clock starting at 150/300/40a.
Even though $55 puts this tournament in the affordable category, 888poker is running a whole host of satellite tournaments into it. These start at only $0.50, giving everyone the chance of a shot at the big time.

Turn $200 Into a Share of $150,000 in the GGPoker Sunday Main Event
There are literally dozens of massive tournaments taking place at GGPoker each Sunday but we’ll hand-picked the $200 buy-in Sunday Main Event to feature in the latest Weekend Preview.
Fifteen-percent of the starters will share at least $150,000 in this tournament, which regularly obliterates its guarantee. There’s a 10,000 starting stack, 13-minutes blinds that start at 50/100/15a and unlimited re-entries until the end of the 12th level.
Buy in direct for $200 or perhaps win some tournament dollars in the rake-free T$ Builder satellites. You may also want to consider selling pieces of your action via the in-built staking software. Whatever you do, just make sure you play this tournament because it’s great fun and pays out big.
Last weekend’s Sunday Main Event drew in a crowd of 1,528 which meant a $281,152 prize pool was up for grabs. Online superstar Jans Arends won it for $42,915 in the early hours of Monday morning.

A $1 Million Guaranteed PKO at PokerStars
The Bounty Builder Series kicks off at PokerStars this weekend so there are plenty of big PKO tournaments for you to jump into. They don’t come much bigger than the Bounty Builder Series 006: $530 NLHE [Bounty Builder HR SE], $1M Gtd event.
This two-day event is guaranteed to be gigantic. The $530 buy-in is split in half with 50% going to the main prize pool and the other half going on everyone’s heads. Bust an opponent and you win at least $125 for doing so.
Up to two re-entries are permitted for the first 3.75 hours of Day 1, which start at 7:00 p.m. CET on October 11. The curtain comes down on Day 1 after 7.75 hours of play before resuming at 7:00 p.m. CET on October 12 to crown the champion.
$530 is likely to be outside the constraints of your back but fear not because there are $22 and $55 satellites running right up to the tournament’s start. One, a $55 buy-in at 7:35 p.m. CET on October 10, has 10-seat guaranteed.
