Betfair launches weekly $100k guaranteed


The pots are getting even bigger at Betfair Poker. The site has added a new $100,000 guaranteed Sunday night tournament that will boost the monthly guarantees up to $4 million.

"We already have some of the biggest cash games available on the Internet, and we want to be able to offer our customers regular higher value and larger buy-in tournaments," said Bruce Stubbs, Betfair's director of poker.

The new $100k guaranteed tournament will be a $555 buy-in, deep-stack tournament. The inaugural tournament will take place Sunday at 6:30 p.m. and play each week on that day and time.

"We are also offering a good range of qualifiers for the $100k, including freerolls, to ensure that everyone on Betfair Poker has a chance of playing," Stubbs said.

Qualifiers have already begun, and there are several ways for players to win their way into the $100K guaranteed event.

Three daily freerolls will run Mondays through Fridays at noon, 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. The top nine players from each daily freeroll will move on to a weekly $1,850 freeroll where they will play for three seats in the weekly guaranteed tournament plus $200 of added cash.

The weekly freeroll final will take place each Saturday at 6 p.m.
