Go For Glory in partypoker’s Player-Friendly Grand Prix Summer Edition
As real money online poker operators go, partypoker really lives up to its name - no sooner has one ambitious promotion or series ended, and another begins! The latest is a veritable feast for online poker tournament fans.
The Grand Prix Summer Edition is a great advert for online poker, with an exciting schedule that runs from 29 June until 17 July and which features 12 multi-flight events plus dozens of special side events.
The buy-ins in the numbered events start at just $1.10 and go up to $55 (which is enough to get you a seat in the $150,000 GTD Main Event), but these very affordable buy-ins don’t mean the prize money is modest in the slightest - the $33 buy-in Opener PKO, for example, boasts a $50,000 guarantee.

If you prefer the more traditional satellite set-up, you’re spoilt for choice. Phased satellites start with partypoker’s brilliantly designed $0.01 Centrolls, which serve as feeders for the $0.22 buy-in Phase 1, then $1.10 buy-in Phase 2 and the (no direct buy-in) Finals - held each Saturday - in which $55 Main Event tickets are up for grabs.
You can also play in nightly Main Event satellites, with the chance to turn a $0.33 buy-in into a $3.30 Micro Main Event seat, $1.65 into an $11 Mini Main Event seat or $7.50 into a $55 Main Event seat!
