Merge Gaming Network Sunday Big Ticket Test

The Professional Rakeback US online poker news department would like to report an announcement regarding the Merge Gaming Network's largest weekly multi-table tournament, the "Sunday Big Ticket."  This upcoming Sunday, January 13th, 2013, the Merge Gaming Network has doubled the buy-in for their Sunday major.  The event, normally a $100+9 event, is going to be a $200+15 event.  This is being done as a test based on feedback received from the latest Poker Maximus Online Poker Tournament Series.  Whilie some may balk, remember that the higher buy-in results in a lower percentage of vig!
