Pokerstars $20,000 HORSE Tournament
>>>Click Here To Signup at Pokerstars Now!<<<
Players start with 3000 chips and the blinds go up every 12 minutes. With 12 minute blinds, this means each HORSE round takes a complete hour. When the second hour starts, the blinds are still just 100/200 with a 16 chip ante. This is slow enough to allow good players to rise to the top.
While the $20K HORSE tournament has a healthy buy-in of $215, you can play in satellite tournaments for as little as $30+2. This satellite is a single table, 8 player sit-n-go where the winner receives a seat into the event. The second place finisher gets $25 in cash. Players start with 1500 chips, and the blinds go up every 10 minutes.
PokerStars.com Multi-table Tournament Options
If you prefer multi-table tournaments, Pokerstars offers a $36+3 satellite as well. In this satellite players start with 2000 chips and the blinds go up every 3 minutes. However, this is not an ultra-turbo event like it appears. The blinds & antes go up in tiny increments. For example, after 20 blind levels (60 minutes), the blinds are 160/320 with a 32 chip ante. This blind structure is a little faster than a regular speed tournament, and a little slower than a typical turbo. One player for every $215 in the prize pool wins a seat into the $20,000 HORSE event. Additional money in the prize pool is given back to players in the form of $39 rebates.
For those who have more money than time, there is a hyper-turbo, multi-table satellite available for $55+1. Players start with just 500 chips, and the blinds go up every 3 minutes. Not only that, but the very first blind level is 100/200. By the time you get to the first Stud round (only 10 minutes in), the blinds are already 300/600. If you’re an action junkie, this is your game. If you prefer to take your time and have the ability to use some skill, play in the other satellites instead.
