High Five Series Back at Winning Poker Network: $6M GTD

WPN Logo

The High Five tourney series is back at Americas Cardroom with 100 total events taking place again. It will run from April 8 to 27, so there will be plenty of opportunities for you to pick the days that you most feel like smoking the competition. The total guaranteed prize money up for grabs is a cool $6 million.

Besides ACR, the series events are accessible from any Winning Poker Network skin, including BlackChip Poker, True Poker, and Ya Poker.

High Five Tournament Series



Every day during the series has at least five High Five MTTs, but a few have one or two more because of multi-flight and multi-day events. They are accessible at different times of the day with each day's events generally starting at 1:00 p.m. In keeping with the “high” theme of the series, there will be a 10-minute break every day at 4:20 p.m. ET.

Most of the events are No Limit Texas Hold'em affairs, but there are a few PLO and PLO8 games sprinkled into the mix along with a 7 Card Stud event. Buyins range from $10 + $1 to $1,000 + $50 while the guaranteed prize pools run from $15,000 up to $1,000,000.

Main Events

With multiple MTTs starting every day, you can pretty much log in any day during the series and find something you're interested in playing. However, you may wish to mark your calendar for April 17 and 25 because these days are when the two High Five Main Events will be taking place.

The first Main Event (event #46 on the schedule) will require $50 + $5 to buy into, and it boasts a guarantee of $420,000. The second day of play begins 5:30 p.m. on April 17, but you can actually enter multiple starting days for this Main Event from April 8 through April 17. Each starting flight consists of 28 levels (4 hours and 40 minutes) of play.

With regard to the second Main Event, this requires $400 + $20 to buy into it, and there is a guarantee of $1,000,000. There are two starting days for this, which will occur on April 23 and 24 at 1:00 p.m. These will both play until the field is in the money and then the remaining contestants will return April 25 at 2:05 p.m. and battle it out until completion.

Of course, there's every likelihood that these Main Events will attract sufficient participation to comfortably exceed the guaranteed marks, in which case the top payouts will grow even larger too.
