The Predator at partypoker Is a Quality $10,000 Guaranteed Tournament
It’s good being spoilt for choice! Every day, poker fans across the globe can take their pick from the varied delights that the phenomenon that is real money online poker has to offer. It could be argued that those players who while away the hours on Texas Hold'em and Omaha cash tables don’t really have to think much before sitting down to play as they tend to stick at roughly the same stakes of the same format. Sit & Go games, meanwhile, have various but limited formats from which to choose.
Online poker tournaments present a different and potentially more subtle prospect in that, although they might share the same fundamental foundation, there are numerous differences. Blindly diving into play is perhaps what many do, but it’s worth delving a little deeper into the detail so that we invest our time and money in tournaments that best suit us, and which offer the best conditions.
Certainly, the top online poker operators are well aware of why it’s important to find the right balance of the key factors, and the experts at partypoker do exactly that. One such fixture is The Predator which, as online poker tournaments go, is a model upon which other sites would do well to base events.
As partypoker deservedly boasts when introducing The Predator, this $22 buy-in tournament - held every night from Monday to Saturday at 18:05 GMT - ticks the right boxes. Chiefly, these are an affordable buy-in, a five-figure guaranteed prize pool and a player-friendly blind structure that has been devised to allow a finish at a respectable time yet without compromising the average stack size. In fact, due to the 8-minute clock The Predator usually ends at around midnight.
Poker for Everyone
Indeed, as one of partypoker’s most popular mid-stakes tournaments, The Predator fits perfectly into the Daily Legends stable of regulars that forms part of one of the veteran poker room’s various offerings. Note that it’s also totally accessible to all bankroll types, with $0.11 buy-in Feeder qualifiers among the countless Daily Legends satellites that run literally around the clock.
Boasting a $10,000 guaranteed prize pool every time, The Predator tends to pay out around $1,500 to the eventual victor, which is a very decent return on for the modest buy-in level(s). Another very attractive feature that’s perhaps a major draw nowadays is that it is a Bounty tournament - more specifically, a Progressive Knockout (PKO). If at first you don’t succeed, worry not - one re-entry is permitted before the end of the tenth level. Incidentally, here is another example of the planning that has gone into putting together this tournament - allowing just one re-entry makes for a more level playing field because the players with bigger bankrolls cannot buy their way to an advantage. Poker, after all, should provide everyone with the same fair conditions and opportunities...
