Ten days of MTT action are scheduled at our iPoker partners, bringing us a total of 111 events with a minimum of €120,000 guaranteed every day!
In Winter, there’s always something special in store at iPoker where we’re once again being treated to another big festival schedule with a special tournament series, delivering a total guaranteed prize pool of €2.5 million.
The iPoker Festival Winter Edition is bringing us 111 unique events from December 3 until December 12, with at least ten tourneys scheduled every day and buy-ins ranging from just €20 for the lowest all the way up to €1,000 for the highest.
As in their May Poker Series run earlier this year, the Winter Festival is coming along with a mix of classic Hold’em, Six Plus and PLO tournaments as well as PKOs and, as another first timer in the iPoker network, the Best Stack Forward feature in the Flighted tournaments of the series.
Best Stack Forward in the iPoker Festival
How massive will your stack be on Day 2?
This feature allows players to play multiple Day 1s even after qualifying for Day 2 of an event with several starting days to increase their chances to bring a bigger stack into the second tournament day, forfeiting any smaller previous stack.
For example, Player XYZ decides to play Day 1A of a given event and qualifies for Day 2 with a stack of 6BB. He then proceeds to give it another shot in Day 1B and is able to progress with a stack of 35BB. Player XYZ will now continue Day 2 of the tournament with that 35BB stack and they 6BB stack of Day 1A will be forfeited.
This feature comes in very handy for the upcoming series as there will be four big flighted events scheduled, coming with a combined prize pool of at least €850,000, including a huge €500,000 Main Event with a total of 13 different starting days, giving player plenty of chance to get that big stack into the all-decisive second tournament day.

With a rich schedule within ten days, including a total of five tournaments with a €100K GTD, naturally the decision in the biggest events of the iPoker Festival Winter is due on the last day of the series.

The missions revolve around the series itself and carry tasks like playing a certain number of iPoker Festival Winters or knocking out players in the PKO events of the series.
