Players looking to play in a major online poker tournament should look no further than the $1 million guaranteed Big Game taking place at partypoker on May 5.

The Big Game has run twice previously and each time seen the champion walk away with a six-figure prize. Canada’s “TIMEXCNT” took down the inaugural Big Game, turning a $5,200 investment into a $195,788 prize after a heads-up deal with “iluvia71” who banked $184,511.

Another Canadian in “RPILON” triumphed in the most recent Big Game, outlasting 195-opponents to get their hands on $203,900.

A similar prize should be on the cards for this latest incarnation of the $1 million guaranteed Big Game. The buy-in remains the same $5,200 although partypoker has made this particular event a phased tournament.

Phased tournaments are similar to live events where there are several starting flights. In this case, partypoker runs numerous $530 buy-in Phase 1s where players sit down with 50,000-chips and play to six-minute blinds. Anyone with chips in front of them when the 24th level ends progresses to the Big Game Final Phase.

The $530 Phase 1s have one re-entry permitted, but the Final Phase is strictly a freezeout. Players can buy into as many Phase 1s as they wish, although they can only take their largest stack through with them to the final should they progress more than once.

It is also possible to buy into the Final Phase, on May 5, direct for $5,200. Doing this awards a starting stack of 500,000-chips.

Of course, the $530 Phase 1 and $5,200 Final Phase buy-ins are quite expensive and out of the constraints of most poker players’ bankrolls so partypoker has created satellites starting from only $1.10.

Feeder tournaments cost $1.10 to enter and award $5.50 tickets. These $5.50 tickets can then be used to play in The Big Game Sub Feeders where $55 tickets are awarded. The Big Game Feeder costs $55 and pays out $530 tickets which can then be used to play in Big Game Phase 1 tournaments.
