Liberally peppered into Aced Poker’s tournament lineup are Guaranteed Tournaments in which the prize pool is guaranteed to be a set amount of money, and in some cases is but the minimum guaranteed amount to be awarded, with portions of players’ tournament buy-ins added to that guaranteed amount to create an even bigger prize pool for players to compete for.
But with a guaranteed tournament, it never matters how many players compete – at least not in so far as affecting the promised guaranteed amount. In other words, if it’s a $1,000 Guaranteed Tournament, then $1,000 (minimum) will be awarded whether 10 players enter or 100 or a 1,000.
Like poker players themselves, guaranteed Tournaments come in all shapes and sizes.
• Some are ongoing, running weekly or monthly (such as the $5,000 Saturday Guaranteed or the Sunday $20,000 Guaranteed)
• Some are one-time events in honor of the holidays or other special occasions (such as the Xmas Forum Bash)
• Some are satellite qualifiers or other promotions for larger special events (the AussieMillions Grand Final – $15,000 Seat Guaranteed)
• Some are high stakes (like the $2,250 Guaranteed Deep Stack) and others are the lowest of low stakes (most notably The Quarterly Quicky, with a buy-in of a quarter + a nickel and a guaranteed prize of $25)
And just as the stakes for the various Aced.com Guaranteed Tournaments vary so widely, so do the buy-ins, ranging from $0.25 + $0.05 to $500 + $50.
Guaranteed tournaments at Aced Poker can be freezeouts, bounty tournaments, rebuys, turbo tournaments,
Guaranteed tournaments are taking place almost all the time at Aced Poker, and Aced.com posts a constantly updated Guaranteed Tournament schedule so you won’t have to miss any of them.
