Big Bang January Part 1

By: CannonLee @ 13:37 (EST) / 841 / Comment ( 5 )




Hi everyone,


To kick off a brand new year The Big Bang: Main Event, $5,000 GTD had 682 entrants and exceeded the guarantee by $1,820 for a HUGE total prizepool of $6,820! That's almost double of what the previous Big Bangs were! These numbers alone show how popular the Big Bang has become over the course of the past few months and to make matters that much sweeter there is a new way to qualify for this tournament, there are Daily FPP Satellites into the Monthly Big Bang with daily satellites running at 14:00 and 20:00 ET every day for as little as 70 FPP. Each satellite will guarantee 10 seats to the Main Event. If you are lucky enough to win a seat you will be automatically registered for the next scheduled Big Bang main event. Please note that the satellites are restricted to PSO Member Ticket-holders and you can earn this ticket by passing the Poker Basics Quiz. Players cannot unregister from the Main Event. From what I've seen of these satellites, the amount of entrants is on average 80 particpants, there is a absolutely great value to be made with 10 seats guaranteed for a minimal buy-in of 70FPPs!


This final table had many of our very own PSOer's displaying their skills and the action was intense! Below are the stack sizes going into the final table:
