Over $1M Guaranteed During the Inaugural PokerNews Online Championship by 888poker

PokerNews and 888poker have come together to bring you the first-ever PokerNews Online Championship, a week-long poker tournament festival boasting combined guaranteed prize pool in excess of $1 million.

The inaugural festival between two of poker's most recognizable brands runs from February 25 through March 5, during which time more than 40 888poker players will become champions of this incredible game.

Much thought has gone into devising the PokerNews Online Championship schedule, ensuring there is a wide range of buy-ins, chunky guarantees, and a variety of formats to put every player to the test.

Buy-ins start at $5.50, increase to $525, and have everything else between those two extremes. Each and every one of the 43 numbered events' prize pool is guaranteed, with those guarantees ranging from $2,000 up to a whopping $300,000.

PokerNews Online Championship players will go to battle in mystery bounties, PKO, Deep Stacks, short-handed tournaments, and some other novel events. For example, there is a Pot-Limit Omaha (PLO) Mystery Bounty for players to get their teeth into, a SNAP PKO event, and the tournament billed as "Cut to the Chase," where the blind levels start as a turbo and gradually slow down as the tournament reaches its business end, which is when most players want more breathing room!

Two Massive PokerNews Online Championship Main Events

While all 43 scheduled events have poker players tingling with anticipation, two PokerNews Online Championship tournaments stand head and shoulders above the rest: the Main Events.

Both PokerNews Online Championship Main Events have multiple Day 1s from February 25 up to and including March 4, when Day 2 takes place. Both are played as a mystery bounty format. The Mystery Bounty Mini Main Event comes with an affordable $25 buy-in yet boasts a $50,000 guaranteed prize pool. The Mystery Bounty Main Event commands a $215 buy-in, unless you win your way in via the plethora of satellites, and guarantees to pay out not a cent less than $300,000!

Adding more prestige to the $215 buy-in, $300,000 guaranteed Mystery Bounty Main Event is the fact PokerNews' live reporting team will be on hand and providing updates from Day 2 and the final table, while 888poker's excellent Twitch team will stream the final table and provide cards-up coverage.

The worthy champion of the $300,000 Mystery Bounty Main Event will not only win a bankroll-boosting cash prize and forever be known as our first true champion but will also walk away with a commemorative winner's trophy.
