Before we go over the Main event let’s take a look at some of the highlights from the other 23 events on the Games schedule. It begins with Event 1, the $30,000 Opening Ceremony. It gets started on August 8 at 6 p.m. eastern with an affordable $33 buy-in. Other than the main event and the $55 high roller, that’s the largest buy-in during the Games.
The cheapest buy-ins during the Games start at $2.20. They include Event 3, the $3,000 Triple Jump (Extended R&A) and the $2,000 Swimming (6-Max).
Other poker varieties on the Games schedule include Progressive Knockouts, Deepstacks, and 6-Max No-Limit Hold’em. The buy-ins range from $3.30 to $22 and the guaranteed prize pools range from $3,000 to $15,000.
Now let’s talk about the Main Events. We forgot to mention there are three of them. The first two Main events are scheduled for August 15. First up is the $25,000 Mini Main Event which has a $16.50 buy-in and obviously a $25,000 guaranteed prize pool.
That’s followed by the $10,000 Micro Main Event with a very cheap $5.50 buy-in.
The big one, the Championchip Games Main Event has two days and Day 1 has already begun. You can buy-in to one of multiple Day 1s of the Main Event daily on 888poker from July 18 to August 15. The buy-in is $50, and the guaranteed prize pool for the Main Event is $500,000.
If you can survive Day 1 of the Main Event, you’ll advance to Day 2 on August 16. If you don’t have $50 for the Main Event buy-in, you can win free tickets to use on any Main Event Day 1 through freerolls and satellites running daily on 888poker.
