Online poker continues to rival the classic in-person games, and the top online poker sites are creating plenty of opportunities for excitement. BetOnline is the latest operator to make that happen, as the Winter Championship Online Poker Series is now underway.
This event was highly anticipated by players of the site, and it will once again offer more than $3 million in prize money over a span of two weeks. There was an event that took place in the Fall, and it was one that was celebrated as being highly successful.
BetOnline has created a comprehensive list of events during this Championship Online Poker Series (COPS), as there will be nearly 200 different tournaments. Traditional buy-ins are going to start at as low as $11, but there will also be events for high-rollers.
There will also be satellite tournaments as a part of this event, and players can enter those events for just $1. Those tournaments actually started ahead of the January 21st date, and they provided some interesting options for players to get entered into the bigger events.
Losers Get Rewarded
All of the players that enter a tournament at BetOnline are hoping to win, but that just won’t happen for everyone. For those players who find it difficult to win any cash at an event, BetOnline is going to give them a chance at redemption.
Players who go an entire day without winning a cash prize at one of the tournaments will automatically be entered into a free roll spot the following day. That free roll seat will come in a No Limit Hold-em style tournament, and the winners will get a chance to earn an entry into a bigger event.
This should entice players to enter more events throughout the day, as there will always be another chance to win the following day. Satellite tournaments are not going to have massive prize pools, but this is also where more recreational type players are going to be competing.
A Look at the Schedule
There were 10 tournaments that took place on January 21st, and all of the events are numbered based on when they begin. Customers who were checking out the schedule could have also joined a multi-day tournament that started on Sunday and will last until January 28th.
Buy-ins are going to be different for each event on a given day, and they range from $11 to $215 on opening day. One of the biggest highlights of this event is the Omaha Tournament, which is going to take place on January 29th.
In order to qualify for the big Omaha Tournament, players are going to have to enter one of the 11 flights that are available. There is a $55 buy-in for the main Omaha Tournament, but there are other ways to qualify throughout the initial week.
All of the action is going to conclude on February 4th as the $109 buy-in No Limit Hold-em Main Event is going to close out this series.
