Every Sunday, PlayNow.com hosts an online poker tournament which promises a $15 000 guarantee. It is one of the most profitable tournaments in the Canadian online poker market, as to prize generally goes for about $5000 or more.
For high-rollers, the buy in is $250, but players who are on a budget can enter the tournament via satellite. These smaller tournaments run throughout the week with a buy-in of just $5.50. There are two $10 sit and go’s and one $30 sit and go. The players who win these tournaments go on to compete in the $15 000 guarantee tournament while 2nd place players get up to $85.
There are 39 levels in the tournament, so players are in for a long ride. However, it is certainly worth the wait for the winning players. These types of tournaments are hard to find in the land-based gambling market in BC, so it is something that Canadian poker fans should try out
