Bovada Poker runs several tournament series with big money prize pools, not least being the $100K guaranteed event that takes place every Sunday afternoon at the site at 4:00 pm ET. Best of all, qualifiers into this event start at only $1 to enter.
The qualifying schedule for the weekly $100k GTD starts with cheap seats for just a $1 + $0 buy-in. For every $17 collected in the prize pool at each of these events, 1 player will advance to one of the $100k Semi Final events of the player’s choice. These take place three times a day, Mondays through Sundays.
Semi Finals take place throughout the week for a range of buy-ins between $7 + $0.70 and $35 + $3.50.
There are also special 30-seat and 50-seat qualifiers, both with $18 + $1.80 buy-ins, each awarding to that many top players seats in the $100k guaranteed main event. Players can also enter the 50 seat special qualifier with Bovada Poker points by using the PTS to TT converter tool the site provides. In that case, the buy-in would be 1,750 points.
And then there are Last Chance Tournaments with buy-ins ranging from $4 + $0.40 to $30 + $3 awarding seats in the $100k GTD for every $162 in the prize pool.
The partial payout structure listed for Bovada Poker’s weekly $100,000 guaranteed tournament is a minimum of $20k for first place, a minimum of $13k for second place and a minimum of $10k for third place.
