Ignition/Bodog/Bovada Hosting $250K Poker Tourney

PWL Network Logo

After holding a similar event in February, the PaiWangLuo Network is running another $250,000 guaranteed tournament on Sunday, April 22 at 5:00 p.m. ET with a buyin of $300 + $25. The $250K Guaranteed can be played from Ignition Casino, Bodog, or Bovada.

Tournament Structure


Players will start with 15,000 chips, and the initial blind level is 10/20. This means that everyone will be 750 bb deep, and these massive stacks will last for a while because the blinds are set to increase only once every 15 minutes.

Late registration will be open until the 15th blind level. There are no rebuys, add-ons, or re-entries allowed.

The payout structure has been altered so that at least 15% of the field will get a prize. In order to avoid an overlay, participation needs to reach 834 players, in which case 126 individuals will finish in the money. If between 841 and 960 people buy in, then 144 will win some cash. In the event that more than 960 but less than 1,201 entrants turn up, 180 will get paid.

Satellites Abound


It's possible to win your seat to the $250K Guaranteed for less if you don't wish to spend the entire $325 required to register directly. Daily satellites begin April 7 at prices between $7 + $0.70 and $40 + $4. Be aware that tickets obtained through these qualifier tournaments must be used in the $250,000 Guaranteed event. They will expire after April 22.

Most of these satties award between 1 and 10 seats each, but there are a couple that are scheduled for just before the big tournament takes place, and they will distribute 30 seats apiece. The 50K Cheap Seats 30 Seats GTD [Turbo] will start up at 12:30 p.m. on April 22, and it costs $7.70 to enter. Your last chance to earn your ticket will be in the $250K Satellite 30 Seats GTD [Turbo], which begins at 2:30 p.m. April 22 for a buyin of $40 + $4.

$250K Guaranteed

Create Your Account If Necessary

You won't be able to play in the $250K Guaranteed unless you have an account at one of the PaiWangLuo Network sites. They are Ignition, Bovada, and Bodog. We recommend Ignition to our Australian and American readers, and you'll get a poker bonus of 100% up to $1,000 on your first deposit along with a matching casino bonus. Read our Ignition Casino Poker review for all the details. Players from the United States have the option to play at Bovada instead as do residents of Mexico. It offers a 100% up to $500 poker bonus, and it has a sportsbook, which Ignition lacks. Check out our Bovada review for further information. Players from Canada and several Latin American countries can participate via Bodog and claim a 100% up to $1,000 poker bonus.
