Which Huge Online Poker Tournament Will I Win on Aug. 18?

Online poker tournament action is huge on August 18th, check out some of the biggest events here.

Sundays are the most exciting day of the week for online poker tournament players because prize pools are larger. It may be the Sabbath for millions of people around the world, the “day of rest” but not for poker players.

It is hard to pinpoint when Sundays became so important on the poker calendar, but that is how it is. If you are an online poker tournament grinder, you need to set aside all your plans for a Sunday and hit the tables instead.

This is especially true on Sunday 18th August because two of the best US online poker sites have tournaments with huge guarantees.

Americas Cardroom is one of the fastest growing online poker sites that offers its services to U.S. residents. In business since 2001, Americas Cardroom has dealt millions of hands to Americans and its tournament offering has vastly improved.

$1 Million Guaranteed at Americas Cardroom

The Online Super Series Cub3d, an online poker tournament festival, concludes on Sunday 18th August. More than $13 million will have been awarded by the time the final event crowns its champion. Event #21 is the biggest online poker tournament of the day, at Americas Cardroom at least. Check the schedule and you will find the BOSS – MDS $1,000,000 GTD kicking off at 1:00 p.m.

You are going to need a bankroll that can withstand a $2,100 hit, but if you can afford to buy in, you will be playing for a share of a guaranteed $1 million. A similar tournament earlier this year saw 687 entrants create a $1,207,000 prize pool. Its champion turned their $2,100 investment into more than $258,000.

If $2,100 is out of the constraints of your bankroll, why not take a look at Event #23? BOSS #23 – $250,000 GTD Sunday Special is a more affordable $215, although both events have last-minute satellites available. A top prize of around $50,000 should be up for grabs.

$400,000 Guaranteed in This Ignition Online Poker Tournament

Elsewhere, at the excellent Ignition Casino, another online poker tournament festival comes to a thrilling end. The Super Millions Poker Open has been running since Saturday 20th July, but it is this Sunday that everyone’s focus is on.

At the slightly strange time of 5:19 p.m. Eastern Time, the Super Millions Poker Open Main Event shuffles up and deals. Costing $450 to enter, the tournament boasts of a $400,000 guaranteed prize pool and will attract a mixture of recreational and professional poker players.

Ignition Casino is running a plethora of satellites into the $400,000 guaranteed Main Event. Three $82 buy-in satellites take place on August 17th and another two on August 18th, each guaranteeing one $450 ticket. There are also three $82 turbo satellites running between August 17-18, each with two seats guaranteed.

Those players who prefer sit & go tournaments can enter $82 six-handed SNGs that have a winner-takes-all format. Win one of these sit & go’s and a $450 Main Event seat is all yours.

Like at Americas Cardroom, Ignition Casino is running two smaller online poker tournaments that have substantial guarantees. You may want to set your alarms early on August 18 because at 7:19 a.m. ET there’s an $82 Mini Main Event with $12,000 guaranteed. Later, at 3:19 p.m. ET, you can get involved in a $109 Mini Main Event where $100,000 is guaranteed to be won. Again, satellites are available to both events.
