Michigan online poker players will be fighting for at least $250,000 in prizes on Oct 24 in The Michigan Classic. The pre-Halloween tournament at PokerStars MI runs at 5 pm the Sunday before Halloween, and it looks to be a huge event.
This is the second time The Michigan Classic has run, but this time around, the guarantee is only half the size of the first go. There was a whopping $500,000 guarantee back in April, and while there was around $65,000 worth of overlay last time, the 1,551 entries were a massive turnout.
Given the response from April, it seems very likely this latest running will end up with more than the promised $250,000, and players can get into the game for less than the $300 retail price. Satellites are running in the lobby now starting at $15, but players who want to top up their accounts can get a free shot at a ticket.
Just make a deposit of at least $30 on PokerStars MI before the 24th using the code
CLASSIC21 and you’ll get a ticket to the Depositor Freeroll with 50 tickets to The Michigan Classic guaranteed up top. That game runs Sunday before the main game kicks off, but there are regular satellites running daily as well.
There are lots of ways to get into the game for The Michigan Classic, and at least 250,000 reasons to do it. Check the schedule on PokerStars MI to plan your shot at The Classic.
