Massive Overlay Expected in MOSS II Main Event
More than $200,000 is guaranteed over the final four days of the mini Online Super Series II with some serious value expected in Sunday´s mOSS II Main Event.
For the past ten days, the 100-event mini Online Super Series II (mOSS II) has been taking place on the Winning Poker Network and enjoying a mixed response. Several of the high buy-in events have far exceeded their guarantees – especially the deepstack tournaments – while many lower buy-in tournaments have cost their hosts a 50% overlay – most recently last night´s $10.00 R/A Event #59 which only attracted 105 entrants, 147 re-buys and 57 add-ons for a $6,000 guaranteed tournament.
MOSS II Main Event Guaranteed for $100,000
However, despite some tournaments seeing more than 700 players – and skins on the Winning Poker Network having an extensive satellite schedule in place – this coming Sunday´s $109.00 buy-in mOSS II Main Event (Event #98) is anticipated to be substantially under-subscribed.
Based on last Sunday´s $75,000 guaranteed Event #28 – which also had a $109.00 buy-in and unlimited re-entries for twelve levels, but only attracted 643 players – there could be as much as $25,000 of value to players who cash in the tournament.
Players whose bankroll does not extend to a $109.00 buy-in – or who wish to get a little extra value – should note that $12.00 satellites to the Main Event run every evening up until Sunday at 18.35pm ET (23.35pm GMT), and the Main Event is scheduled to start on Sunday February 24 at 7.30pm ET (00.30am GMT) with three hours of late registration for those who qualify through a last minute satellite.
Value Available Elsewhere Throughout the Weekend
In addition to the mOSS II Main Event, there are several tournaments over the next few days which catch the eye as potentially offering a massive overlay.
- On Friday there is a $15.00 freezeout with a guaranteed prize pool of $12,000 scheduled at 19.30pm ET (00.30am GMT – Event #78) and a similar tournament last night fell 84 players short of reaching its guarantee, yet still paid out 126 places.
- Saturday night sees the return of the $50.00 buy-in $30,000 guaranteed freezeout (Event #88) for which the cards are in the air at 19.30 ET (00.30am GMT). This tournament may represent value because it is scheduled too early for many American players, too late for those in Europe, has a buy-in which may be beyond many players competing in a “mini” series and which may fall out of the spotlight as the Winning Poker Network use their marketing resources to drive players´ attention towards the (potentially under-subscribed) Main Event. That is the theory anyway. Late registration is available for two hours if players want to wait and see how much value there is before committing to this event.
