Poker Tournament with a €200,000 Prize Pool at Classic Poker

casino_classicLeading European facing poker site Classic Poker, double their Sunday €100,000 guaranteed to an astonishing €200,000 as of January 17, 2010. Today’s news delivered from representatives of Classic Poker to team Riders are rather shocking as the last few weeks have seen overlays of respectively €30,000 and €15,000 in the normal Sunday guaranteed tournaments making this by far the highlight of the period amongst European Poker Rooms.

More than €40.000 for first place

The special Sunday edition to be hosted next year will run as a normal tournament, but besides the more than €40,000 first place and €160,000 to be shared amongst the rest of the poker players ending in the money all players who are kicked out of the tournament will have a bounty on the head of €75.

With a €200,000 guaranteed the Head Hunter Tournament at Classic Poker need 888 players before break even is reached and with an increased buy in from €150 to €320 a fairly big overlay can be anticipated. Out of the €300+€20 buy in, €225 go towards the €200,000 guaranteed price pool and €75 to the bounty prices.

€200,000 divided by the share going towards the guarantee (€225) equals 888 players needed to reach the break even point. It might happen but surely there is a ton of value qualifying to this major event taking place in mid January next year.

The qualifying schedule is already running with €3+€0.3 tournament as the cheapest qualifiers and the daily final costing players €32+€3 to participate in. We will be very surprised if more than 650 players attend this tournament in which case Classic Poker will need to pay players a bit more than €50,000 to meet the guarantee.

With a 200% sign up bonus up to €1000 and player entries into freerolls there has been no better time to join Classic Poker and win a seat to the €200,000 poker tournament.
