LONDON, January 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Sky Poker tournament runs every week with guaranteed £1000 pool
As part of their online promotions, Sky Poker offer a weekly poker tournament, popular with the online poker firm's more serious players.
This groundbreaking tournament is confirmed to take place once a week, Sunday through Saturday. The initial buy in is £1, however this amount doubles with each consecutive day of the tournament, so if a player is knocked out, they can buy back in again at the new rate. All buy-ins go towards the final winning pool. To enter the next round, (with the exception of the final round), players must finish within the top 50% to avoid having to buy in again.
A spokesperson for Sky Poker commented: "The Survivor Series tournament is very inclusive. With such a low initial buy in, it allows newer players the chance to play quality tournament poker without breaking the bank. At the same time, it will give veteran players a chance to test their endurance, playing progressively higher stakes in a progressively more competitive environment. The attraction here will be the opportunity to win a £1000 guaranteed pool from an initial £1 buy in - I'm sure that even the most conservative of poker players will want to try their hand in the competition."
