Winter OSS Info

Blue Info BTN

The series features 148 wonderful, action-packed events. Confusingly, some of the events are separated into low, medium, and high versions.

For instance, OSS #18L costs $33 to enter while OSS #18M and OSS #18H, which occur on the same day and begin at the same time, are priced at $109 and $215 respectively. Therefore, there are actually more series events than you might think by looking at the numbers attached to these events.

Buyins start at a low-roller-friendly $6.60. Yet more expensive events beckon that cost up to $2,650 + $50 for those with deeper pockets.

A Diverse Schedule and Wide Range of Games


In addition to having a broad menu of buyin levels to choose from, the OSS is also notable for the variety of types of poker offered. Though most of the tourneys are for the ever-present NL Hold'em, there are some PLO and PLO8 contests too. Occasional Hyper and 6-max events provide a break from the routine.

With the number of tournaments on the Winter OSS roster, it's virtually impossible for any single individual to enter them all. Therefore, you will have to look carefully in the poker lobby and select those that interest you the most. Nevertheless, there are a few major events that you may wish to keep your eye on.

5 Card PLO and 5 Card PLO8

One thing new in this Winter OSS is the presence of 5 Card PLO and 5 Card PLO/8, which have never before been seen in a tournament series at the Winning Poker Network.

Three 5 Card PLO/8 events grace the schedule on Dec. 4 at 4:45 p.m. ET. They're priced at $22, $109, and $630 and come with guarantees of $7,500, $30K, and $100K respectively. All three of them are Progressive Knockouts.

Then comes high-only 5 Card PLO on Dec. 7 at 4:30 p.m. The buyins are $22, $!09, $630, and the respective guaranteed prize amounts are $5K, $15K, and $50K. These tourneys are in Progressive Knockout format.

If you would relish the opportunity to try out these new forms of poker without any bounties at stakes, then don't worry. On Dec. 11 at 4:45 p.m., you can pay $22, $109, or $630 to join 5 Card PLO events with guarantees of $10K, $30K, and $100K. For split-pot 5 Card PLO, look to Dec. 14 at 4:30 where there are MTTs with buyins of $22, $109, and $630 and guaranteed prize pools of $5K, $15K, and $50K.

Main Events

The Winter OSS has three separate main events, which each have two starting days and then a second day of play.

The first of these costs $600 + $30 to join, and it guarantees $1,000,000. Day 1A is on Saturday, Dec. 3 and begins at 1:05 p.m. ET. Day 1B starts on Sunday, Dec. 4 at 1:05 p.m. Each of these starting days will see 23 levels of play. Then the tourney continues for Day 2 on Monday, Dec. 5 at 2:05 p.m. This Main Event is OSS #1 on the schedule.

The next Main Event, OSS #68, has Day 1s a week apart, on Dec. 11 and 18, and it costs $215 to enter. It also guarantees $1 million, and Day 2 play will commence on Dec. 19. The final Main Event is the biggest one with a $2 million guarantee and a $2,650 buyin. It is event #70 on the roster, and it takes place on the same days as event #68.

Multi-Flight Tourneys

There are three multi-flight tournaments this time around in the Winter. Each of them features multiple flights from Dec. 4 to 18. They are events #134 L, M, and H on the schedule and they come with buyins of $22, $215, and $630 respectively. The guarantees associated with each of these MTTs are $250,000, $1 million, and $2 million.

Each flight (42 of them for #134H, 58 apiece for the other two) ends play at a certain point. The remaining players then proceed to Day 2, which starts at the same time for all three events: Monday, Dec. 19 at 1:30 p.m. ET.

Satellites Beckon

Satellites Structure

Although the Winter OSS already caters to a wide range of bankrolls with a diversity of buyin levels, there's another way to participate in some big events even if funds are low. A broad array of satellites exist that let you attempt to win your seat for less than the sticker price.

These qualifying tournaments are priced as low as a couple of dollars apiece. Actually, there are quite a few freeroll satellites too although most of them pay out in tickets for more expensive satellites, so it's a multi-step process to qualify for a tournament via these freerolls.
