Last month, BetMGM became the second online poker operator to launch in Michigan. Now, they’re offering players the opportunity to compete in their first major online tournament series.
The BetMGM MI Inaugural Online Poker Series will run from April 18-25 and features over $300K in guarantees spread over 10 events. PokerNews will be offering daily live updates throughout the series.
The plan is to offer one tournament a day – a total of nine no-limit hold’em tournaments and a single pot-limit Omaha event – culminating with a big day on Sunday, April 25. That is when three tournaments will be held including the $20 buy-in Event #8: $5K GTD 8Max Mini NLH, $109 buy-in Event #9: $20K GTD $109 Sunday 1/2 Price 8-Max, and a $535 buy-in Main Event, technically Event #10: 75K GTD Sunday Special 8-Max.
Prior to the series, BetMGM MI will hold the $109 buy-in, $100K GTD Grand Online Main Event, on Sunday, April 11.
