Earlier in the month we told you about the upcoming Poker Maximus tournament and the satellites that Lock Poker was holding into that $1.5 million online poker tournament series. But Lock Poker isn’t the only satellite holdind a satellite series qualifying players for the various Poker Maximus events. Carbon Poker is holidng Poker Maximus satellites as well.
The Poker Maximus starts on March 4, 2012 and satellites in No Limit Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha are running now through the end of the 2012 Poker Maximus on March 25. That’s the day of the $10,000 Mini Main Event. There are 67 events in the Poker Maximus in all. Ticket prices range from $11 on up, and players can win coupons worth various ticket amounts at diferent Carbon Poker satellites for buy-ins as small as $1.10. Some qualifiers offer more than one coupon while some are rebuy / add-on events.
Players can use existing tournament tickets in their accounts for Poker Maximus events. However, any tickets specific to the Poker Maximus won in this particular satellite series must be used at the Poker Maximus between March 4 and March 25 or be forfeited.
The kickoff event of the 2012 Poker Maximus is a $7,500 NLH Freezeout on March 4, for an $11 buy-in. That day also sees 3 other Poker Maximus events: #2, a $175,000 NLH freezeout for a $109 buy-in; #3, a $15,000 NLH freezeout for a $33 buy-in; and #4, a $75,000 High Roller event for a $215 buy-in.
Whether you win them at Lock Poker or Carbon Poker, the Poker Maximus is the same.
