The $2.7 million guaranteed Monster Series kicks off at partypoker on Apr. 29 with the first 15 of 123 scheduled tournaments, each costing between $0.44 and $33 to buy into, yet featuring guarantees up to $300,000.

Monster Series is the name given to partypoker’s online poker festival that has low-to-mid stakes tournament players at heart. Despite buy-ins ranging from $0.44 up to $33, partypoker guarantees that at least $2.7 million will be won by the time the curtain comes down on the final event.

This Monster Series, like its bigger brother the $40 million guaranteed POWERFEST, has its tournaments split into different categories based on the event’s buy-in. There are Low, Mid and High buy-ins, although the latter tops out at a still affordable $33.

Each day of the Monster Series sees the tournaments focus on one particular format. Eight-max no-limit hold’em is the game of the opening day, with other days focusing on 6-Max Progressive Knockout (PKO) events, 6-Max PKO, and 6-Max no-limit hold’em.

There are some major tournaments every single day during Monster Series, but three in particular catch the eye. Those of you who love looking for value in online poker tournaments need to look no further than the three events that shuffle up and deal at 18:00 p.m. each day.

Log on at this time and you’ll be able to play for a share of $5,000 guaranteed for only a $1.50 buy-in, $25,000 for a $7.50 buy-in and an incredible $100,000 for a $33 buy-in.

  • $33 buy-in with $100,000 guaranteed
  • $7.50 buy-in with $25,000 guaranteed
  • $1.50 buy-in with $5,000 guaranteed

Sunday is the day that has the some of the biggest Monster Series tournaments, as you would probably expect. There is a $33 buy-in at 6:00 p.m on Apr. 29 that has $200,000 guaranteed and will see several Team partypoker players compete, including Padraig Parkinson, former boxing champion Carl Froch, and Louise Butler.

$300,000 is guaranteed for a $33 buy-in on May 6 for the Championship Event. Whether partypoker manages to attract 10,000 entries to that tournament is anyone’s guess, although it does seem a tad ambitious, but that is good news for the players.
