|Online poker operator MANSION.COM has burst into the New Year in good form as the first of its month long series of ‘$100K A DAY’ Guaranteed Poker Tournaments kicked off in the early hours of this morning.|
The tournament began at 03:00GMT this morning, attracting 498 players and delivered an impressive $52,690 prize pool overlay. MANSION member ‘kuj0’ was the inaugural $100K A Day event winner, parlaying a $100 investment into an impressive $24,000 payday for his efforts up against the modest field, pocketing the winner’s cheque in less than five hours of online play.
“The response to the first of our $100,000 Guaranteed Tournaments has been fantastic, but those that participate early stand to benefit the most from the offer,” said MANSION Communications Manager, Kathryn Farrell. “We expect the momentum will build and tournament numbers to swell throughout January, as more players recognise that there is real value to be found at MANSION Poker.”
54 players shared in the $100,000 prize pool, with second placed player rkuok receiving $15,000, third placed dlperrio $10,800, with fourth and fifth place sharing nearly $14,000 between them.
Players can enter the $100,000 Guaranteed daily events at MANSION, through a direct buy-in for US$100, or via the low limit buy-in satellites. More details can be found at MANSION.COM.
