The weekend is upon us, and that means many of our readers are planning to hit the tables and get their grind on in some exciting poker tournaments. If that describes you, if you plan to play some online poker events over the weekend, you could do much worse than checking out the following trio of value-packed tournaments.
The $200,000 Guaranteed Boosted Sunday Party
PartyPoker revamped its tournament schedule this month, adding two new Sunday majors. The Sunday Party is one of those newcomers, and this weekend’s edition is extra special.
The Sunday Party costs $109 to enter, and usually features a $150,000 guaranteed prize pool, which makes it the biggest event on PartyPoker’s schedule. However, despite overlaying for the past two weekends, the Sunday Party on February 26 is having its guarantee boosted to $200,000. The Sunday Party is great value in its original form, but more so with an extra $50,000 added to the guarantee.
Satellites from only $0.01 run around the clock and continue to do so right up to the Sunday Party shuffling up and dealing at 7:05 p.m. GMT on February 26. It is the $16.50 buy-in satellites that award the $109 tickets needed to enter the mix and fight for a slice of a guaranteed $200,000.
What PKO Tournaments Can You Play at PartyPoker For Less Than $5?
Whether you buy in for $109 or play your way into the Sunday party via one of the many satellites at your disposal, you’ll receive 100,000 chips, and play to an exception blind structure that starts at 500/1,000/100a. The blinds increase every 12 minutes for the first 18 levels before extending to 15 minutes thereafter. Day 1 concludes when only 16 players remain, with those 16 surviving players returning to the action from 8:05 p.m. GMT on February 27.
Last weekend, 1,358 players bought in, and “NLsoldier” shot them all down. The champion secured the $9,434 top prize plus $6,787 worth of bounties for a total haul worth $16,221. Expect a much larger payday if you triumph in the boosted edition this weekend.
Huge Mystery Bounty Action at 888poker
888poker is where you should head if you are a fan of mystery bounty tournaments because the Mystery Bounty Festival features some awesome events over the weekend. Each of the Mystery Bounty Festival tournaments are worth playing, but two stand out from the crowd this weekend.
MB Festival #14 is a $55 buy-in event features a $50,000 guaranteed prize pool, making it perfect for mid-stakes grinders or lower stakes players wanting to take a shot at the big time. The cards are in the air from 6:30 p.m. GMT on February 26 and continue being dealt across 12 minutes levels until only one player remains.
$25,000 of the guarantee is awarded as mystery bounties. Six of those bounties are worth $500, two weigh in at $1,500, with one lucky 888poker player walking away with $5,000!

The mystery bounties are even larger in the MB Festival #18 – $150,000 Mystery Bounty 8-Max at running across numerous Day 1s from 5:00 p.m. GMT on February 24 through 6:00 p.m. GMT on February 27. $109 buys you into the event, although satellites from only $0.10 are available if you fancy turning a tiny investment into a massive payday.
Nine of the mystery bounties in this tournament tip the scales at four figures or more, with six $1,500 prizes, two $4,500 prizes, and a jackpot mystery bounty worth a cool $15,000!
Earlier in the festival, the similarly-sized $120,000 Opening event saw Brazil’s “Leofoliveira” come out on top of a 1,032-strong crowd and pad their bankroll with $10,811.
