maybe you're an A-type personality that's always got ten things going on at once, maybe you're a habitual multitasker and binging Breaking Bad while running a live Twitch stream and playing a poker tournament while making dinner. Then this special series is just for you.
Maye you have a short attention span or can't sit still for more than an hour without going mental. Then the Turbo Series is up your alley.
Perhaps it's just a life situation and if you do not have the luxury of sitting around for a full day and night and into the wee hours grinding away because of your hectic home life (kids, nagging parents, attention-starved pets, co-dependent SOs), then the Turbo Series is catered for your tight schedule.
For three Sundays in a row, there will be some fun Turbo Series action. It begins on February 21 and ends on March 7. Along the way there will be 134 events with multiple tiers of buy-ins for each tournament. The lowest price point is a mere $11 and there's a High Roller with a $5K price tag. There's no shortage of PKO events, but there's also NL Omaha 8, 5-Card PLO, HORSE, 8-Game, Limit Omaha 8, PLO 8 and one old-school limit hold'em event.
The big one and anchor event will be the Turbo Series Main Event starting on March 7. It's a single-day affair, so don't worry. There's two different buy-in levels with a 'Low' and 'High' option. The High Main Event has a $1,050 price tag and a $2 million prize pool. The Low Main Event costs only $55 and has a $1 million guarantee.
Overall, there will be $25 million in guarantees. The other big guarantee occurs on February 28. Event #128 $1,050 8-Max PKO has a $1 million guarantee. Event #3 $5,200 NL on the opening day has a $750,000 guarantee. Event #126 $5,200 8-Max PKO also has a $750K guarantee.
And for you true degens and PLO-freaks, there's five turbo PLO events ranging from $55 to $530. On the opening day, don't miss Event #5 $109 PLO 6-Max for some gamboooool.
