For poker players in Nevada and New Jersey, there has been no lack of gaming options online, in part due to the World Series of Poker. The WSOP offers online poker gaming in both states and has been busy upping the ante so to speak due to players spending more time at home as part of the coronavirus pandemic. We have now just learned that the WSOP has more in store, including another tournament series coming soon, featuring $4 million in guaranteed prize money.
Taking place just after the Spring Online Championships, Money May is a new tournament series set to begin via WSOP.com. Players will be able to compete for big money with the series having kicked off yesterday and lasting for a full three weeks!
The schedule is very similar to the Spring Online Championships, offering 93 events in total. This is just a few short of the Spring series. Buy-ins also start at a much lower price point of $5, going as high as $1,000. The Main Event of the Money May will feature $300,000 in prize money and have an entry fee of $525. This event will take place on the 24th.
While the Main Event is always an anticipated one, the series will also include 12 more events with large six figure guaranteed prize pools. There will be two Player Appreciation events on the schedule, both offering a low buy-in of $100 and a guaranteed prize pool of $100,000.
Each of the Player Appreciation events will offer $5,000 in added cash prizes. At random, six players will be given $500 while four will earn $250. An additional 10 will be given $100 in prize money.
Additional Event Details
On top of all this action, there is so much more to explore during Money May. Players with larger bankrolls can take part in six high roller tournaments. Each of these events has a buy-in of $1,000. Each event guarantees at least $100,000 in guaranteed prize money.
The remaining events on the schedule are a mix of turbos, knockouts, freezeouts and rebuys. The majority of the action is No Limit Hold’em, but players will also find Omaha events including a Pot Limit Omaha 8 tournament on the schedule.
Money May will also include a special series leaderboard competition. Players will earn points towards the leaderboard by competing in tournament events. The leaderboard competition will give away $20,000 in total prize money with 50 players earning a piece of the pie. The winner of the leaderboard will take home $3050.
Players in both Nevada and New Jersey can take part in Money May. We will certainly stay tuned to this event and see just how many players show up to compete and if the $4 million in prize money is surpassed, which there is no doubt it will be as players log on to take part in this new online poker series!
