Bet365 have a stated policy of encouraging players into quality, high-strategy
games by offering satellite competitions feeding into their top events. No matter
what the size of your bankroll is, you’ll always have the opportunity on their
site to experience the highest standard of online play, with professional-sized
prizepools and slower structures.
The best example of this is their £200,000 Guaranteed Big Sunday Event: This
tourney can be accessed through a No Limit Hold ‘Em Re-buy satellite that costs
just $25 plus $2.50 to enter, with a minimum of 70 seats at the big table up for
grabs. With a minimum of 71 players, there’s a starting chip count of 3,000 with
add-ons of 5,000 and ten minute levels.
The winners of this satellite go through to the main event, where the No Limit
Hold ‘Em structure remains, but a freezeout policy is used. There’s a minimum
of 150 players, 10,000 starting chips and 15 minute levels – and a buy-in of $200
plus $15, which means the satellite entry will save you over 80% of the cost of
buying your way in.
If you’re an aspiring player looking to gain confidence in tournament play then
Bet 365 is an ideal place to start making inroads into some serious challenges –
and you won’t have to risk a large bankroll to do it, either…
