If you couldn’t make it south of the border for the 2023 World Series of Poker, then PartyPoker Ontario has you covered. From June 11 to June 26, PartyPoker Ontario is running the inaugural Ontario Micro Series.
The Ontario Micro Series caters to the low- to medium-stakes player who might not have the time or bankroll to fly to Vegas. The schedule is made up of online poker tournaments with buy-ins starting out as low as $0.11* and going up to $265.
There will be 88 events, most of which will be split out into three buy-in levels—Low, Mid, and High. There will also be a small selection of tournaments that will have a “Super High” buy-in level.
All told, the combined guarantees across this series will be $200,000.

Highlights of the Schedule
With 88 events to choose from, there’s something for just about everyone in the Ontario Micro Series schedule. However, players will be most excited about a few major events.
The whole series begins with the PKOpener. A progressive knockout event that starts at 17:05 ET on June 11. Players can choose from three buy-in levels—a $0.55 with a $50 guarantee, $11 with a $1,500 guarantee), and $55 (with a $5,000 guarantee)—or you could play all three.
Later the same day, you can play the $10,000 GTD $109 High Roller 7-Max, and towards the end of June 26, there is a $12,500 GTD $265 Super High Roller 7-Max PKO which will nicely round off the series.
In addition to all the scheduled tournaments, there are also satellites running for most of the larger events. These start out from as little as $0.01, allowing even the most micro-stakes player to take a shot at the big-ish leagues. However, the most important tourneys which no one will want to miss are the two Main Event tournaments.
