Coming Very Soon: The 2017 Super Millions Poker Open
Tournament poker is always better when there’s a festival on. Not only do you get more tournaments at a wider range of buy-ins, you also get more opportunities to play different games – with a giant guaranteed prize pool waiting to be won. The next big festival at Bodog Poker is just around the corner: the Super Millions Poker Open (formerly the Summer Millions) starts July 15 and runs all the way through to the Main Event on August 13. This year’s SMPO has $2.5 million guaranteed in prize money, up from $2.3 million last year, and there will be at least $300,000 on the line during the Main Event.
With over 100 tournaments on this year’s Super Millions calendar, there will be something for every poker player out there, no matter your bankroll or level of experience. And you don’t have to wait until July to lock down a seat at the SMPO tables. Qualifiers start this Thursday, June 29, giving you the chance to “satellite” your way into the Super Millions for as little as 55 cents. If you’ve been dreaming about playing the big Main Event, but the $450 buy-in is too rich for your bankroll, play one of these qualifiers and win your seat for a fraction of the cost.
Double Your Treasure
With so many tournaments at your fingertips, you can choose whichever games you like the most – or play them all. Most of these events will be no-limit Hold’em, but you can also play Omaha (both pot-limit and fixed-limit) and Omaha Hi-Lo. On top of all that, you’ll find Knockout tournaments, Turbos, Super Stacks and Mega Stacks, plus the return of our popular “Hundredaire Maker” and “Thousandaire Maker” tourneys.
Don’t be surprised if there ends up being way more than $2.5 million in the prize pool, either. Last year’s SMPO blew out the $2.3-million guarantee by over $500,000, and that festival “only” had 70-plus events on the calendar. Over 42,000 people came to Bodog Poker to play the 2016 SMPO; that was enough volume for 16 of the tournaments to double their prize pools. Some even went 3X and 4X above their guarantees. Want a piece of this action? Start qualifying for the 2017 Super Millions this Thursday at Bodog, and as always, best of luck at the tables.
