Satellites, missions, and freerolls

Beyond the major tournaments, players can expect even more. Satellites for all events will run throughout the festival, allowing for players of all bankrolls to get involved.

Those participating in the series can also qualify for three freerolls, each with a €1,000 guarantee. All events are scheduled for Dec. 13 and players gain entry by completing the following missions:

  • Satellite Mission – Play three satellites with a minimum buy-in of €1.
  • Main Event Mission – Participate in three main events.
  • Knock Out Mission – Eliminate at least two players from the PKO events.

‘Best Stack Forward’ makes debut in series

As part of the Winter Festival, iPoker is debuting its “Best Stack Forward” feature throughout the series. iPoker developed this feature after using flighted tournaments for the first time during the May Poker Series.

However, a player who already qualified for Day 2 with a small stack wasn’t able to play another Day 1. That meant a player couldn’t try bringing a bigger stack into the second day of a multi-flight tournament.

This is now possible, so that players can take another shot on qualifying for Day 2 with a bigger stack. Winter promises to heat up for players at iPoker throughout December.
