Thanksgiving $250K Guaranteed Tournament at Ignition, Bodog, Bovada

Pai Wang Luo Network

Prepare for big tournament action as Ignition Casino Poker and its PaiWangLuo Network partners are holding a $250,000 Guaranteed event on Sunday, Nov. 25 at 5:00 p.m. ET. The Thanksgiving $250K will cost $300 + $25 to enter and replaces the normal $300 + $25 Sunday $75K Gtd High Roller. However, those with High Roller tickets will be able to use them in the Thanksgiving $250K.

Tournament Structure


With starting stacks at 15,000 and the initial blinds set at just 10 and 20, you can look forward to a lot of play for your money in the Thanksgiving $250K. Each blind level lasts a full 15 minutes, further extending the possibility for deep-stacked gameplay with your 750bb beginning stack.

Late registration will remain open for the first 15 levels of play. There are no rebuys, add-ons, or re-entries permitted.

The payout structure for this special tourney has been adjusted such that at least 20% of the field will take home a prize. In order to avoid an overlay, at least 834 competitors must join. If the field reaches this size, then 171 people will be winners. If the number of participants surpasses 855, then 180 players will cash. The number of payouts increases in this manner as the total count of entrants grows, always rewarding at least 20% of them.

Satellites Abound


Poker room management realizes that $325 isn't exactly chump change, and there are quite a few individuals who cannot devote such a sum to a single poker tournament. Therefore, the site is spreading many satellites to enable poker fans to win their seats to the Thanksgiving $250K for less.

Direct satellites have already begun to appear in the Ignition lobby. You can buy in for $10 + $1, $20 + $2, or $40 + $4 to attempt to win your seat. Another option is the $7 + $0.70 Cheap Seats super-satellite running nightly at 7:00 p.m. ET and on Nov. 25 at 12:30 p.m. The Cheat Seats awards tickets to the $40 + $4 qualifier tournament, so you have to win twice in a row to score your entry via this method.

If you'd prefer to win your way in through sit n' gos, then you can enter the six-player $250K Quarterfinal for $10 + $1. First place gains entry to the $50 + $5 Semifinal, which awards one seat to the Thanksgiving $250K.
