First up is the $100,000 Opening Event. It obviously as a $100,000 prize pool and a $55 buy-in. The second event on the Day 1 schedule is for budget conscious players. It’s the $20,000 Mini Opening and it has a $16.50 buy-in. Closing out Day 1 is the $15,000 Late Opening. It has a $33 buy-in.

The XL Winter Series is an all No-Limit Hold’em affair, but there are a variety of different types of tournaments on the schedule. Some of these include PKO 6-Max, Freezeout, Regular PKO, PKO 8-Max, DeepStack, and Knockout tournaments.

If you’re looking for the high roller tournament on the XL Winter Series schedule you should clear Tuesday, January 25 off your calendar. The most expensive tournament of the series begins that day at 6 p.m. eastern, the $50,000 PKO tournament. It has a hefty $320 buy-in.

There are a pair of Main Events on the XL Winter Series schedule and they both begin on Saturday, January 30. The more affordable Main Event is the Mini Main Event. It has a relatively cheap $33 buy-in and a $50,000 guarantee.
