What’s new at hk prize?

Must read

It is pretty much business as usual at hk prize . Nothing major has taken place, but there are a few things to note.
First, in celebration of awarding $5million since the inception of the Battle of the Planet leaderboards began, they are doubling the prize pool for each division from Nov 8 – Nov 21. If you are not familiar, Battle of the Planets is a sit n go leaderboard. It is divided into different “planets” for the different SNG stakes.
In news, PokerStars nabbed the newest (and youngest) WSOP Main Event Champion, 21 year old Joe Cada. PokerStars is huge $$$$ and I am sure their sponsorship deal is so lucrative the champion can’t say no. They are also running a 100k Congrats Joe Cada tournament on November 22.
The PokerStars Sunday Million had its largest prize pool ever. With over 18,000 entrants the prizepool was about $3.65 million. First place was just over $280,000.
The Turbo Takedown, a massive tourney where the buy-in is 3000 FPPs (player points), is set to take place at the end of the month on the 29th. In addition to the $1 million prize pool, there are pro bounties, bonuses for repeat cashes, and the winner receives an Audi TT.
PokerStars currently has tons of PCA satellites going on. They picked up this popular tournament from the WPT and put it on their own LAPT early next year in January. The PCA satellites are sure rival the WSOP satellites in volume. In addition to real money satellites, freerolls to the PCA start every hour at twenty past the hour. You have no excuse not to qualify!
Finally, PokerStars has lowered its minimum electronic check (E-check) deposit to just $10! Turn a little into a lot!
PokerStars continues to kill the market, they have about twice as many players online at any given time compared to Full Tilt. They have the best customer support. Their VIP program is insane when you reach the higher levels. If you are playing higher stakes (especially SNGs), you are burning money by not playing at Stars. The money they make and therefore are able to give away in promotions is unrivaled.

The 2008 World Series of Poker has proven to be the largest series, both in entrants and prize money, in history. Official records were released yesterday evening confirming the achievement. The number of this year’s entrants beat out 2007 WSOP’s by 4,432 entries and the prize pool grew by $20,880,030. The number of countries and territories represented by the players was also at an all-time high.
For 2008, the WSOP had an amazing 58,720 entrants and a whooping prize pool of $180,676,248. It consisted of the largest live tournament field in a non-Main Event, for Event #2, in history. The number of entrants reached 3,929 for the $1,500 no limit Texas Hold’em tournament. Players this year came from 118 different countries and territories as compared to last year’s 87. So far, entrants from over 57 countries have cashed, and a player from each United States state and Canadian province.
It is clear that the WSOP is growing in popularity, recognition, and significance. As World Series of Poker Commissioner Jeffrey Pollack put it, “The results this year demonstrate the increasing global appeal of our events and the universal recognition that winning a World Series of Poker gold bracelet is poker’s ultimate achievement.”
This year’s Main Event comes in at second place in the record books in terms of size and riches. Its 6,844 entrants and $64,333,600 prize pool only fall short to those records set by the 2006 WSOP’s Main Event.
