Only three days remain for poker players to enter the Ongame Network Poker Classic and have a chance at winning their share of more than one million dollars in this innovative tournament with both online and offline finals. 231 players currently have tickets for this $5,000 buy-in no-limit hold’em poker tournament and the prize purse already stands at $1,255,000 including a $100,000 added overlay!
The ONPC Online Final starts on November 4 at 3PM EST and plays until 45 players remain. The tournament then pauses for four weeks and resumes in beautiful Barcelona, Spain on December 2-3. The 45 finalists will begin the Live Final with the same chip stacks they had when the tournament paused.
As well as adding $100,000 to the prize purse, Ongame Network will also pay for flights, hotel and VIP treatment for the 45 finalists. All Live Final champions are guaranteed some part of the prize pool and only need to travel if they do well in the Online Final.
Qualifiers for the ONPC are now running around-the-clock in a wide variety of sit-and-go and scheduled tournament formats. Players can qualify for as little as $1 and proceed up through the four qualifier stages or buy-in at levels from $6 to $870.
Poker players wanting to buy in directly to the Online Final, the highest buy-in event ever available online, can do so now.
