OSS Series Running at WPN From Oct. 3 - 14: $3.5M+ Guaranteed

WPN Logo

The longstanding Online Super Series (OSS) is back at Americas Cardroom for its 14th installment from Oct. 3 to 14, 2018. This is a normal OSS rather than a jumbo-sized OSS Cub3d, which consists of three series in one, so the prize money up for grabs is a bit smaller than usual with $3.5 million+ guaranteed across 82 events. Still, there are plenty of reasons to hop on to the Winning Poker Network site of your choice and try to score your share of the cash.

OSS Details

Magnifying Lens

Among the dozens of events on the roster are No Limit Hold'em, Pot Limit Omaha, and Pot Limit Omaha/8 games along with several other varieties of poker. Buyins range from $0.50 + $0.05 to $500 + $40, so the lineup definitely caters to players of varying bankroll levels.

New 6+ Hold'em Coming

6+ Hold'em

Of especial note are the presence of several 6+ Hold'em tournaments. This format is new to the WPN, having only been introduced in cash game form in late August. The upcoming OSS will mark the first time the network is offering this game in tourneys.

6+ Holdem uses a stripped deck from which all 2s, 3s, 4s, and 5s have been removed. Because of the changed frequency with which different hands appear, flushes become more valuable than full houses, and sets are more powerful than straights. All other rules for 6+ are the same as in regular Texas Hold'em. To learn more about how 6+ Hold'em works, watch the video below:

Notable OSS Events


Even the most diehard poker aficionado likely won't have the time or inclination to participate in every single OSS event. Therefore, we've presented below some of the most interesting of them so that you can jump straight to the highlights.

Event #27, Sun. Oct. 7, 3:00 p.m. ET
$500 + $40, $500,000 Gtd
A standard No Limit Texas Hold'em MTT, what's noteworthy about this one is the large prize pool of a half million dollars. You can think of this as a kind of warm up for the OSS Main Event with the same buyin but half the prize money.

Event #35, Mon. Oct 8, 4:15 p.m. ET
$40 + $4, Final Table Experience, $5,000 Gtd
If you want to engage in some deep-stacked play, then this is the event for you. You'll start off with a cool 1 million chips and blinds at 1,000/2,000. It won't just be bet, bet, all-in over three streets because you'll have 500bb to play with.

Event #59, Fri. Oct. 12, 3:30 p.m. ET
$100 + $9, 8-Max PLO8, $40,000 Gtd
The biggest four-card poker guarantee in the OSS roster, this instance of split-pot poker promises to be fun and possibly profitable. The $100 + $9 cost of entry is pretty reasonable: about half the cost of the weekly Sunday Special PLO while guaranteeing a little bit more in payouts.

Event #70, Sat. Oct. 13, 8:00 p.m. ET
$0.50 + $0.05 6+ 6-Max, $500 Gtd
Eager to check out the new 6+ Hold'em game? Well, here's your chance to do so for a trivial investment. The smallest-buyin entry on the OSS schedule, this tournament will fit within your bankroll no matter what stakes you normally play. It's a great way to become familiar with 6+ gameplay and find out if you like it.

Event #75, Sun. Oct. 14, 3:00 p.m. ET
$500 + $40 OSS Main Event, $1,000,000 Guaranteed
In line with tradition at Americas Cardroom and the Winning Poker Network, a Million Dollar Sunday event will take place on the last day of the series. The WPN is the only operator in the U.S. market with the wherewithal to host such large guaranteed prizes, and it does so several times per year. Don't miss your opportunity to scoop up a big tourney payday.
