It’s the most wonderful time of the year. The Winter Series is readying up for an outstanding finale. We have not one, but three Main Events on the cards this weekend, along with the dramatic conclusion of the Winter Series-01 Phase event.
The Phase tournament promises to be one of the richest tournaments of the entire series.
Only those who make it through Phase 1 will gain entry to Phase 2 and, with it, their shot at the $2.5 million guaranteed prize pool.
The clock is ticking. If you haven’t made it to the final phase yet, it’s high time you got involved.
Phase 1 – the path to Winter Series glory
For those who want to join in the action, there are two ways to make it through to Phase 2.
First, you can opt for the $109 Phase 1 SNGs. With a turbo format, this is a fast and furious way to qualify. The winner advances to Phase 2 with a 250k stack. Phase 1 SNGs run continually and start as soon as they fill up.
The second path is to register for scheduled Phase 1 tournaments. Players who are still left standing after 18 blind levels take their remaining chip stack with them to Phase 2. There are eight Phase 1 tournaments running daily, from 11:00 to 01:30 WET.
You can have as many attempts at Phase 1 as you need to secure your place in Phase 2. There’s no need to fret if you don’t make it the first time. Dust yourself off and have another go.
Players who qualify in any Phase 1 game will be automatically registered for the Phase 2 event. That’s when the fun really begins…
Phase 2 – play for a $2.5 million guaranteed
The Winter Series-01 Phase 2 event is shaping up to be one of the most exciting, prolific and insanely valuable tournaments of the series.
Everyone still standing in Phase 2 will have had the grit and determination to make it through, so now is not the time for dossing. Now is the time to step it up a gear and show the poker world what you’re made of.
Phase 2 offers the biggest guaranteed prize pool of the Winter Series outside of the special edition Sunday Million. You really don’t want to miss it, so be sure to earn your place before the final phase begins.
The final phase tournament is scheduled for January 12th at 19:05 WET.
Phase 1 satellites running around the clock
If you’re looking for an even more accessible way to gain entry, satellites for Phase 1 tournaments run daily. Buy-ins range from $5.50 MTTs to $37.50 SNGs. Extra value satellites, with added seats, are available around the clock at $5.50 and $11 buy-ins.
The Winter Series Spin & Gos are still running at $4 buy-ins. Spin & Gos offer a short-handed, hyper-turbo format for super-fast action. Prizes include Phase 1 satellite tickets and Phase 1 tournament entries, as well as tickets to the Main Event.
That’s right. You could be playing for a $2.5 million guarantee for as little as a $5.50 initial investment.
