OSS Cub3d Series Back at WPN: $13M+ GTD, July 21 - Aug. 18

Winning Poker Network Logo

The Winning Poker Network, including America’s Cardroom and Black Chip Poker, is running its eighth OSS Cub3d tournament series, beginning toward the end of July. There is a total of $13 million in guaranteed prizes across more than 160 events; however, $5 million of that amount is not exactly part of the Cub3d series proper. The action will begin on July 21 and run through Aug. 18.

Three Series in One

Numerals: 1,2,3

Given that this series is named “Cub3d,” it should come as no surprise that the poker is really split up into three separate, smaller events.

The first series, referred to as MOSS (Mini Online Super Series), will consist of 48 events and run from July 21 through the 28. Buy-ins for series events range from as little as $0.06 to as large as $109.

The second series, referred to as OSS (Online Super Series), will begin on July 29 and run through Aug. 11. This is the biggest of the three Cub3d series of tournaments and features a total of 96 events with more than $4 million in guaranteed prizes. The buy-ins for the OSS events range from $1.10 to $1,050.

The BOSS (Bigger Online Super Series) is geared specifically to high-rollers and consists of 25 events that will take place from Aug. 12 through 18. There are $3 million in guaranteed prizes that come with the BOSS, the most lucrative of which is the $1,000,000 GTD Main Event on Sunday, Aug. 18. As you might expect, buy-ins are the highest in the BOSS and range from $160 to over $2,000.

Notable Events

Calendar

From the middle of July through the middle of August, players have 169 different MTTs that they can join. This is undoubtedly a large number of events, so we did players the favor of highlighting some of the most notable MTTs across the three different segments of the Cub3d series. You can check those out below:

MOSS Event #32, Fri. July 26, 6:30 p.m. ET
$10 + $1, Seven Card Stud, $2,000 GTD
In terms of tournaments within the U.S. online poker market, it is not common to find many seven-card stud events. This affordable event allows stud die-hards as well as amateur stud enthusiasts the chance to win a decent amount of money.

MOSS Event #42, Sun. July 28, 3:00 p.m. ET
$80 + $8, $300,000 GTD
If you play on the Winning Poker Network with any amount of regularity, you will recognize Event #42 as being similar to the regular, weekly Sunday Special tournament. The only difference is that the guaranteed prize pool has doubled and the tournament entry fee has been more than halved. This may be the perfect way to cash in massive winnings without breaking the bank to enter.

OSS Event #65, Wed. Aug 7, 6:45 p.m. ET
$150 + $150 + $20, SKO 8-Max, $30,000 GTD
It's not just about survival and laddering up the prize distribution in this Super Knock Out tournament. A full half of each buy-in is committed to the purpose of putting a bounty on the head of every participant. Play to eliminate your adversaries, and you may wind up with some nice prize payments even if you don't last long enough to make it into the money.

OSS Event #91, Sun Aug. 11, 3:00 p.m. ET
$500 + $40, Million Dollar Sunday, $1M GTD
America’s Cardroom was one of the only places you could find a $1 million guaranteed tournament every week, but after the Million Dollar Sunday was taken down, players have been at a bit of a loss. Luckily, this OSS event gives everyone a chance to see what all the buzz is about and potentially strike a nice payday in the process. The buy-in may be a bit higher than it used to be, but it is still more than worth it for an event of this magnitude.

BOSS Event #21, Sun. Aug. 18, 1:00 p.m. ET
$2,000 + $100, Million Dollar Sunday, $1M Guaranteed
This event is nearly identical as the one that exists within the OSS, only the buy-in is larger, and thus, the playing field will be smaller. If you can afford the buy-in there is no reason why you shouldn’t take your shot at the potential to walk away a big, big winner. In fact, if you can afford to spend a little more than $2,600 on buy-ins, you can enter both $1M Guaranteed events and double your chances of winning huge.

BOSS Event #22, Sun. Aug. 18, 1:00 p.m. ET
$200 + $15, Sunday Special PLO, $60,000 Guaranteed
Winning Poker Network’s regular Sunday Special PLO is all fine and good, but this event within the BOSS gives you the chance to compete for double the guaranteed prize pool that you would find on any other Sunday. With that said, the $215 buy-in is no different than it would be on any other Sunday, meaning you have a shot at twice the winnings for the same exact price. What is there not to love?

$5 Million GTD Venom Tournament

Before the OSS Cub3d Series officially kicks off on July 21, the $5 Million GTD Venom tournament will first take place. Though the Cub3d tournament series is said to have $13 million+ in guaranteed prizes, $5 million of that is strictly part of the Venom tournament, which has three starting dates. Day 1A will kick off on July 14 at 1:00 p.m. ET, Day 1B will begin on July 16 at 1:00 p.m., and Day 1C will start on July 21 at 1:00 p.m.

The buy-in to the Venom is $2,650; however, there are daily satellites that can earn you direct entry into the Main Event. These satellites range in price from $150 up to $630 and are available virtually every day of the week leading up to the tournament’s three starting days. There's also a series of step SNGs that you can try if you want to compete against small fields as you endeavor to score your Venom ticket.

The winner of the Venom will become the recipient of $1,000,000, so it goes without saying that this event has the potential to change quite a few peoples’ lives for the better. With all of that said, Americas Cardroom and other Winning Poker Network skins have been struggling to maintain a high volume of consistent traffic recently, especially with the introduction of their new software client, so there is some concern with regard to whether or not these lofty guarantees can be met.

Satellites for Most Events

Satellite Structure

Apart from satellites for the $5 Million Venom, there also exist satellite tournaments for regular OSS Cub3d Series events. Unlike the Venom’s satellites, the Cub3d series events can be bought into for just a few dollars more often than not. With buy-ins starting at just a little over $1, there are virtually no financial barriers to entering this series.
