We are updating this post as Bodog Poker left the USA and was replaced by Bovada Poker. Well, now Bovada Poker was taken over by Ignition Poker. Players were given the opportunity to move their accounts to the new poker room. Ignition Poker is part of the Bodog family and shares players across the network. Visit our Ignition Poker review for more details. The information in this post rings true today as it did when originally posted as Ignition Poker hosts the Sunday $100k! This MTT still remains an outstanding value with large overlays.
In my last article I shared the bankroll management strategy of playing in guaranteed tournaments with overlays. One of the very best values is playing in the weekly 100k guaranteed tournament at Igntion Poker. The 100k is Igntion Poker’s top paying tournament and it has historically had huge overlays. In fact, most weeks may see as much as a $30,000 overlay! There is no other big money poker tournament with this small of a field.
So would you rather play against tens of thousands of other players or would you rather go against 500- 800 players and have a shot at a $25,000 first prize? And… Igntion accepts US players and now Canadian players can play at Igntion too!
To get in on the action of the Igntion 100k you can get in several ways. First off is buyin in direct for $162. Now that might be a little steep for many players (including myself) so Igntion runs a huge amount of satellites to the game. The first level of 100k qualifiers is called the "Cheap Seats". These tournaments only cost 1.10 to play and Igntion adds one seat to the 100k semi-final for every 34 players in the game.
You can also catapult your way into the Igntion 100k from satellites that have low buy ins of $7.70, $17, $22 and 34.00. On game day (Sunday) the lobby is packed with "Last Chance" qualifiers with a new satellite starting about every 2 minutes! Visit the Igntion 100k Qualifier Schedule to see when games start. You can even get a seat in the qualifiers with Igntion Poker Points that you earn from playing poker!
There is another way to get a FREE seat to the 100k! Simply open an account with Igntion Poker here, make your first deposit (you get a 110% match up to $550 FREE) and you will get a seat in six of the $100K New Player Qualifier Freerolls! As I said before, the Igntion 100k is most likely the best value in online poker. If you are not playing this tournament, you are missing out on an incredible value. Sign up with Igntion Poker today and best of luck in the 100k!
