JackPoker Weekend Recap 11 February – Big Bang Mania!
Weekend at JackPoker was again filled with amazing tournaments and players for sure had their fill in every buy-in level. Quality over quantity is the name of the game at JackPoker when high attendance was reached in multiple poker tournaments.
This weekend was somewhat extra special because we did not only celebrate the Chinese New Year, the beginning of the Year of the Dragon, but also the debut of the new monthly Sunday Big Bang poker tournament.
Let’s see what went down this weekend!
Sunday Big Bang Delivered the Mania
February 11th was the launch day for a new monthly main event when Sunday Big Bang tournament was played for the first time at JackPoker.
The debut was received by the community with open arms as a total 966 players took up the challenge to win the best prizes from the total guaranteed prize pool of $30 000 dollars!
With constant flow of new promotions and bigger tournaments, JackPoker has reached a new milestone where traffic on their poker room has stabilized to over 2000 players during peak hours. Any time of the day you find over 1000 players enjoying game at JackPoker. If we take this in to consideration, from all the people who were online last night almost 50% registered to play in $30 buy-in Sunday Big Bang tournament.
Buy-in / GTD -ratio truly hit the sweetspot and when all was said and done after 7 hours and 47 minutes it was player “iammorcianvan” who took home the $6600 first prize. Not bad for a $30 buy-in. Money was good for all who managed to play themselves in the final table where all in the top six won all over $1 000.
Sunday Big Bang will be played on the first Sunday in every month, so according to my calendar the next Bang will be played 10th of March.
Sunday High Roller Action
Sunday Big Jack
Hefty prize pools were shared in two JackPoker High Roller tournaments where in both number of participants stayed under 100 players. From High Rollers it was the $200 buy-in Sunday Big Jack that received the most attention. Total 90 players with enough deep pockets participated in this $20 000 GTD HR tournament that lasted little over 4 hours.
Best of the bunch was player maiorWithas who bagged $6 000 dollars after beating Afalastimore in the final table. Second place awarded still a nice payday of $4 000 and third place awarded player aprch with $2 400 dollars.
Big Hunter 400
Big money bounty hunting scalped heads in Jack Hunter Big Hunter 400. This $400 buy-in bounty tournament put a nice prize on every head and a total 57 players took up the challenge. After 3 hours of bounty action it was clear who was the ultimate alpha hunter in Big Hunter 400 even if the tournament was not over yet.
After the showdown, the player who dominated the hunting season was Rebeka50 who managed to win bounties worth $6 480! The first place together with the bounties delivered a total payday $9 672! The second best bounty hunter in Big Hunter 400 was found in the third place where KendoGerplzca managed to win $1 368 dollars as prize money and $1 080 from bounties. Second place in the tournament was PSluckyin with $2 566.40 total money won.
High Volume in Bonus Bonanza and Medium Stakes Tournaments
Like every week, affordable yet high rewarding Bonus Bonanza tournaments had a high volume of players. Even though in these tournaments the prize pool is awarded in InstaCash that only work in cash games, it seems active grinders have become fanboyz and girlz of these tournaments. In three tournaments with entry fees $20, $50 and $100 almost 500 players went after big InstaCash prizes.
Other popular tournaments this weekend were the low and medium stakes Jack Hunters and the $50 Deepstack bounty tournament.
