Logo of PWL Poker Network

During the upcoming Superbowl weekend, the PaiWangLuo Network will be holding a $250,000 guaranteed tournament with a buyin of $300 + $25. It's set to start on Saturday, Feb. 3 at 5:00 p.m. ET. You can buy in directly or win your seat through qualifiers at Ignition (USA + AUS), Bovada (USA + MEX), or Bodog (Canada and Latin America).

Tournament Structure

Pages of Paper

The competitors will begin with 15,000 chips and blinds at 10/20. The 750bb deep starting stacks mean that there will be a lot of postflop play, so you won't be limited to just shoving and praying. Each blind level is 15 minutes long, and late registration will be open until level 15. There are no rebuys or addons allowed, so your upfront investment is strictly defined and certain. The $250,000 Guaranteed has an altered payout structure whereby at least 15% of the field will collect a prize. If the minimum number of players to avoid an overlay, 834, enter the event, then 126 of them will be winners according to information in the tournament lobby. If the field size passes the 841 threshold, then 144 will be paid, and should 961 - 1,200 players register, then 180 people will take home prizes.

Qualifier Possibilities

Satellite Tournaments

The poker managers at the participating rooms are well aware that $300 + $25 may be too pricey for some folks. Therefore, they have deployed a robust schedule of satellites permitting you to win your entry for less. Every day, starting on Jan. 18, you will have at least three opportunities to claim your $250K Gtd ticket for a trivial investment. At 9:30 a.m., there will be a satty MTT with a $15 + $1.50 buyin, which will distribute tourney seats in accordance to how many people join the satellite. Furthermore, a $7.70 Cheap Seats event will be running nightly at 7:00 p.m. with five seats guaranteed followed by a $20 + $2 at 11:00 p.m. that guarantees one seat.

Mondays - Fridays, there will be an additional chance to pick up your ticket at 6:00 p.m. with the $10 + $1 satellite that guarantees a single seat. On weekends, a nearly identical tournament will run at 3:00 p.m., but it guarantees two seats. Also on Saturdays and Sundays, a three-seat guaranteed event will take place at 6:00 p.m. for $20 + $2.

A series of qualifiers is running every day at 8:30 p.m. until Friday, Feb. 2 with buyins of $40 + $4. Each tournament awards at least one seat, but the closer we get to the date of the $250K Gtd, the more seats will be awarded. For instance, the last of these satellites, running on Feb. 2, will distribute no fewer than 15 entries to the target event.

Finally, if you wait till the last minute and have yet to win your entry, there will be two opportunities to do so on Feb. 3. A $7 + $0.70 feeder tournament is scheduled for 1:00 p.m., and it guarantees 30 seats. A couple hours later at 3:00 p.m., you can pay $40 + $4 to play for one of another 30 guaranteed tickets.
