The Series Accessible to All
As you can see from the schedule above, there will be plenty of mini-tournaments besides the high roller events. You will be able to participate in these mini editions of the events for only a tenth of the main tournament buy-in. This gives everyone an opportunity to participate in a festival. Here is what Chris Donnachies, partypoker’s Head of Poker Room Management had to say:
“The Christmas and New Year period is always a busy one for us here at partypoker, and the same can be said for our players, so we wanted to give our players a series which allows maximum flexibility during a time where poker doesn’t always take center stage.”
And here are the comments made by team partypoker’s Carl Froch:
“I’m looking forward to playing some poker over Christmas and the Winter Grand Prix is perfect for players of any level. I’m particularly looking forward to the Main Event, and there are plenty of opportunities to qualify for this for much less than $109. I hope to see lots of you at the tables.”
