Ignition Poker Announces Holiday Poker Blowout

Holiday Poker Blowout at IgnitionIgnition Poker has announced a revised tournament schedule for the Christmas and New Year holidays and added an extra $100,000 to the guaranteed prize pools.

´Tis the season to be jolly if you play at Ignition Poker this Christmas and New Year, as the site has announced its revised holiday tournament schedule – and it promises to be a cracker! New “Holiday Doubles” tournaments have been added to the Boxing Day and New Year´s Day schedules, putting more than $100,000 extra on the tables for players over the festive season.

Two of the site´s feature tournaments – the $100,000 guaranteed Main Event and $50,000 guaranteed High Roller Event – have also been moved from their regular Sunday slots (on both Christmas Eve and New Year´s Eve) to the Boxing Day and New Year´s Day schedules, resulting in a total of over $750,000 in prize money across the two days of the Holiday Poker Blowout.

The Holiday Doubles Tournaments

The “Holiday Doubles” tournaments are mirrors of the existing tournament schedule starting eighteen minutes later than the regular events. For example, on Boxing Day and New Year´s Day at 1:00pm (all times ET), a regular $11.00 buy-in tournament with a $2,000 guarantee gets underway. Eighteen minutes later at 1:18pm, a “Holiday Doubles” tournament with an identical buy-in and guarantee will also get underway.

The pattern continues each hour from 1:00pm to 10:00pm on each of the two “Holiday Doubles” days with the exception of 4:00pm and 6:00pm, when the rescheduled Main Event and High Roller Event will take place. Consequently the Holiday Poker Blowout schedules for December 26th and January 1st look like this:
