At first glance, the Main Event simply looks like another great, but common, tournament with its $25,000 guaranteed prize pool and 30-minute blind levels. But after taking a closer look at this Sunday night tournament, you’ll also notice that the Main Event has a very interesting structure where the action pauses on Monday morning at 1:00 GMT, then resumes again at 19:15 GMT on Monday night.
Most weekly guaranteed tournaments don’t offer a structure like this since, however, the Main Event keeps players’ schedules in mind so those who make deep runs can get some rest, and then return to the tournament refreshed and ready to go.
Besides the interesting schedule, the Main Event costs just $35 to enter, with satellites as cheap as $0.55. One more thing worth noting about the Main Event is that you also get a large starting stack with 10,000 chips. This ensures that you’ll have plenty of time to sit back and make good plays on your way towards lots of cash.
PKR manager Neil Wright believes that the Main Event is a product of player demands as he said, “We dedicate ourselves to meeting player demand and ‘The Main Event’ does just that. We’re pleased to offer an online serious tournament, which turns ambition into an opportunity.”
