Winning Poker Network Logo  Winning Poker Network is gearing up for another big weekend by offering a Million Dollar Warmup Series to compliment the largest guaranteed tournament available to US-based players as the Main Event, their signature $1,000,000 guaranteed!  All of this great action will take place from July 30th- August 2nd!

Winning Poker Network Million Dollar Sunday

Winning Poker Network, which consists of America’s Cardroom, Black Chip Poker, PokerHost, True Poker and Ya Poker, has continued to tweak and grow the tournaments surrounding their now signature Million Dollar Guaranteed tournament and this latest round of changes seems to have really taken it to the next step.  There is a lot great value for players to take advantage of either through the tournament series, or the Million Dollar Guarantee on Sunday August 2nd at 3PM.

Million Dollar Guarantee

Winning Poker Network is still the only US-facing site to have attempted this large of a tournament, and they are now offering it for a fourth time!  This instance of the tournament is a $540 tournament that will take place on August 2nd at 3PM Eastern Time.  There will be $200,000 guaranteed for first place and there are satellites running around the clock for as little as $2.20.  These great satellites make it so that anyone can get in on this great opportunity.  Below is a more in-depth look at the satellites offered for players to get their chance at the $200,000 first prize!

Sat Schedule Million

The previous three instances of this tournament have been a bit of a mixed bag.  The first attempt back in December of 2014 was cancelled after 5 hours because of DDoS attacks.  This was exceptionally gutting for the company as the tournament was on pace to break the guarantee by 5-10%.  February 2015 was the next attempt and while it did not meet the guarantee it did run to completion with minimal interruptions.  April saw the third installment of this marquee event with no interruptions, but the slightest of overlays.  If this momentum continues, the tournament should run without any problems and should come close to meeting the guarantee.  It’s a great opportunity for players to earn life changing money for a very small buy-in!

Million Dollar Warm Up

Million Warm Up Schedule

Each time a new Million Dollar Guarantee is held there are even more lucrative and expansive tournament series surrounding it.  This go around features a 46 tournament schedule from July 30th through the Main Event on August 2nd.  This tournaments series is much more focused on smaller buy-ins, so that players of all buy-in levels can find something to play.  The desire for Winning Poker Network to do this likely stems from the desire they have to satellite a lot of players into the Million Dollar Guaranteed tournament.  By offering many lower buy-in events, players will have something to play while also participating in the main Event.  The schedule doesn’t just cater to the lower buy-in players though as there are a plethora of medium and higher buy-in tournaments as well.  Regardless of where your playing preferences lie, you will be able to find something to play and reap great value from.
