High Five Series Back at Winning Poker Network: $10M GTD

WPN Logo

The High Five tourney series is back at Americas Cardroom with an extended schedule and 100 total events. It will run from Apr. 7 to 26, 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 $5 million $10 million: recently doubled from the initially announced value and more than any previous High Five series has awarded.

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

High Five MTT Series - April 2020



There are five tournaments a day in the High Five series, and they're all in the afternoon and evening, starting between 1:00 p.m. and 9:10 p.m. ET. 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 several 7 Card Stud events. Buyins range from less than a dollar up to $5,000 + $150 while the guaranteed prize pools run from $1,000 up to $840,000.

Main Events

With five MTTs per 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 12, 19, and 26 because these Sundays are when the three High Five Main Events will be taking place at 4:00 p.m. ET.

These Main Events will require $420 + $30 to buy into, and they boast guarantees of $840,000 apiece. Assuming a prize distribution based on enough registrants to exactly hit the guarantee amount, this translates into a first-place payday of $137,340: certainly enough to make you feel high even if you weren't already! Of course, there's every likelihood that these tourneys will attract sufficient participation to comfortably exceed this mark, in which case the top payout will grow even larger.

Satellites Abound


Whereas some of the High Five MTTs cost just a few bucks to enter, there are others that might be too expensive for those with smaller account balances. Yet, you can still get into one of the big events for less by qualifying through satellite tournaments.

Americas Cardroom has indicated that many of these satelliltes will be held in the new Cyclone format. This is a kind of fast-fold Blitz Poker game where you can enter, leave, and re-enter the tournament whenever you choose, preserving your chip stack all the while. When you grow your stack up to a certain level, you will be awarded your ticket. Thus, you'll be granted the opportunity to win your seat for just a few bucks and according to your own preferred schedule.
