CSOP Mini Details

Blue Information Button

The 40 events in this edition of the CSOP Mini have buyins ranging from ₮0.20 to ₮100 and guarantees of between ₮50 and ₮10,000 apiece. That ₮ symbol refers to the crypto-currency Tether (USDT), which is what all the games are denominated in at CoinPoker, the world's largest crypto-only online poker site. The value of Tether is tied to the U.S. Dollar, so you can benefit from the advantages of crypto, like fast transaction speeds and low fees, with the pricing stability inherent in the most widely used fiat currency.

Though the bulk of the schedule is for the ever-popular No Limit Texas Hold'em, there are two events listed for Pot Limit Omaha and another for 5 Card Pot Limit Omaha. However, there's more diversity in this series than it might first appear because rebuys, progressive knockouts, hypers, and freezeouts are all on the menu.

There are four MTTs each day of the series. They begin at noon, 1 p.m., 2 p.m., and 3 p.m. ET without exception.

The amount of money and number of events in the CSOP Mini are modest when compared to other leading internet poker series, like the Black Diamond Poker Open at Bovada and the Online Super Series at Americas Cardroom. Yet, the advantage of CoinPoker is that field sizes tend to be no more than a few dozen players, leading to tournaments that conclude within a few hours rather than taking all day to play out.

Each Tournament Awards a Ticket to a Larger One

The CSOP Mini is like a junior-sized version of the forthcoming CSOP. The victor in each CSOP Mini tournament will receive free entry into a larger event in the CSOP. In all, 40 tickets will be awarded valued between ₮20 and ₮500.

If you're fortunate enough to win entry in this manner, don't neglect to open the CoinPoker software on the right date and at the correct time to participate in the tournament.

Notable Events

With just 40 tournaments on the roster, it's not too difficult to join in every one if you want. Nevertheless, if you're pressed for time, we've identified several of the most intriguing events on the CSOP Mini schedule:

CSOP Mini Event #6
Saturday, March 18, 1 p.m. ET; ₮5 5PLO Rebuy Turbo; ₮300 Guaranteed

The only PLO5 event in the series, event #6 is also a turbo and a rebuy, so you may have to budget for much more than the initial ₮5 buyin if you want to be in it to win it. This is the perfect, low-cost intro to the 5 Card PLO format if you've been intrigued by it but don't want to commit too much money to trying it out. This tournament awards a ₮20 ticket to CSOP #21.

CSOP Mini Event #36
Saturday, March 25, 3 p.m. ET; ₮20 Mini PKO Saturday Special; ₮1,000 Guaranteed

Costing ₮20 and featuring a prize pool of at least ₮1,000, this is an event for those who want to try to earn bounties as well as money from the normal prize pool. Because it's a PKO event, the bounties on remaining players will tend to increase as the MTT goes on, hopefully leading to some truly enviable bounty cash at the final table. This tourney pays out a ₮75 entry to CSOP #13.

CSOP Event #40
Sunday, March 26, 3 p.m. ET; ₮100 CSOP Mini Main Event; ₮10,000 Guaranteed

The culmination of the 10-day Mini CSOP, the Main Event is also the most expensive item on the menu with a buyin of ₮100. This relatively high price point will keep the riff-raff out as you contend for your share of the ₮10,000 guaranteed. There's one ₮500 ticket for CSOP #26 up for grabs.

Compete in Monthly Tournament Leaderboard

Winners' Podium

While you're participating in the CSOP Mini tourneys, you'll also be earning points toward the Monthly Tournament Leaderboard, which guarantees ₮15,000 in cash and tournament entries to the top finishers. The number of points you receive for each MTT is determined by the buyin level, field size, and your finishing position.

There's no cost to enter the Monthly Tournament Leaderboard, so any prizes you win are truly free. Of course, you might want to expand your tourney schedule beyond just CSOP Mini events if you're really keen to climb the ranks of this monthly contest.
