The end of August promises to bring quite a lot of online poker tournament action to the players. In the following article, we will provide you with an overview of the most interesting tournament series on the leading online poker platforms. Read on for more details and full schedules!

Bounty Hunters Poker Series on Chico Network $168,000 GTD

The US-friendly Chico Poker Network has launched a $168,000 guaranteed progressive knockout series. There are 36 tournaments on the calendar, as well as daily $1,000 lottery freerolls for the most active players.

Chico, an American poker network, is creating a new identity for the PKO Series called Bounty Hunters Poker Series. Unlike King of the Ring, this festival is more modest and offers a lower-cost entrance.

Tigergaming, Betonline, and SportsBetting will organize the Bounty Hunters Poker Series, which will guarantee $168,000 across 36 events from August 22 to 28, 2022.

Here are the main features of the series:

  • The average guarantee across the series is $5,666, while the average buy-in is $31. Buy-ins will range from $5.5 to $215
  • The prize pool in serial events has been increased when compared to similar events in the regular schedule. For example, the $11 MTT within a series guarantees anywhere between $2,000 to $4,000, while such a tournament in the standard schedule guarantees only $2,000. 
  • Half of all the tournaments scheduled will be held in a 7-max format. 
  • The $50,000 guaranteed Main Event for a $22 buy-in will need to gather 2,500 entries to cover the guaranteed prize pool. 
  • Late registration will be available for 90 minutes. 

Here is the full Bounty Hunters Poker Series schedule:

Every day, a lottery event with a $1,000 prize pool will be held for the series’ most active participants. The starting stack is determined by the number of Bounty Hunters Series knockouts:

1-5 – 1 chip

6-10 – 3 chips

11-20 – 5 chips

21 knockouts or more – 10 chips

As a result, participants in lower-cost tournaments will be able to earn additional awards since a result of this promotion, as they will have more opportunities to knock out opponents.

iPoker Network Elite Series €300,000 GTD

The Elite Series Midstakes Edition event has been announced by iPoker Network. 66 events will be held over the course of 9 days, with at least €300,000 in prize money. Let’s  look at the series’ features.

Until this year, the iPoker Network sponsored 2-3 series every year, avoiding them throughout the summer. This time, one of the three festivals that have already concluded fell during this time of year, and they announced another event taking place in the last week of August just a few days ago.

All iPoker skins will host the Elite Series Midstakes Edition from August 22 to 30, 2022, with €300,000 guaranteed across 66 events.

In comparison to the Summer Festival, this one is offered as a medium buy-in series with identical characteristics, with the exception of a schedule that is nearly three times smaller.

  • Average buy-in is now €21
  • Average guarantee is  €4,546
  • Minimum buy-in is set at  €3
  • Maximum buy-in is set at €50
  • There are four multi-day events instead of 6
  • There will be 5 Omaha events

For the first three days, participants may only buy tickets to the major events. The PKO format will be used for half of the tournaments, and practically all MTTs will allow up to 5 reentries during the late registration period.
