Tournament entries start at just $1.10 and range only up to $215, making it truly one of the most egalitarian festivals you can find online.
Variety will also be an essential part of the equation with everything from rebuys and re-entries to Progressive Knockouts to turbos, hyper-turbos, heads-up shootouts, deepstack tournaments and mix-max events to choose from.
Dubbed the "Monster Series," it fits the name with 140 events across the tourney schedule.
