It is already the third month of the year and as always, everything is beginning to take shape. For gamblers, more so poker players from all around the world, this means that most of the anticipated tournaments are just about to kick off in major ways. It is undeniable that there have already been a number of outstanding events over the past two months but it does not hurt to know that there is still more to come.
Ignition Poker’s Black Diamond Poker Open
The eighth edition of Ignition Poker’s Black Diamond Poker Open kicked off on March 1 and will be up and running until March 31. During that time, there will be a total of $4 million in combined guarantees for all of the 139 action-packed events that the series will feature – the most notable of these events is going to be the $300,000 guaranteed main event that is set for Sunday, March 31.
With a wide range of buy-ins starting from as low as $25+$2.50 to as big as $425+$25, Ignition Poker is welcoming participation from all kinds of grinders. So, whether you are a high roller or you prefer to be a little cautious with your bankroll, you will be able to enjoy a big bunch of the tournament’s variations which are scheduled as bounties, knockouts, six-max, monster stacks, limit hold’em, pot-limit Omaha as well as Omaha eight-or-better among others.
In addition to all the goodies that players will be enjoying throughout the run of the poker series, each of the Sunday’s leading up to the March 31 main event will have the regular $100,00 tournament replaced by a special $108,000 event. This is specifically meant to be for the commemoration of the eighth anniversary of the poker festival.
The 2019 ARIA Poker Classic
As mentioned earlier, this month marks the beginning of a series of great poker events for online poker players from all across the world. This includes the annual poker summer camp in Las Vegas whose schedule was released less than a week ago.
According to the announcement, the first of the 2018 summer poker schedules occurring outside the World Series of Poker (WSOP) will kick off on June 2 and it will end its run on July 14 with most days being slated to involve tournaments running twice a day at 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. The morning events will not only sport a guarantee but also bigger buy-ins – so definitely keep your eyes on these ones if you are a high roller.
Most poker players who are familiar with the tournament series will most likely be more interested in the WPT500, the ARIA’s summer schedule’s flagship event since 2014. This year, the ARIA’s WPT500 will run as from June 21 to June 27 and will feature eight starting flights.
