September 29 at WilliamHill started Autumn Festival an ambitious tournament series with a total guarantee of more than €400,000.
The last two weeks have been saturated in the tournament series in the largest online poker rooms. In the online series on PokerStars, PartyPoker and 888Poker, more than $100 million was played, and more than $14 million will be played in the recently launched OSS Cub3d series on the Winning Poker Network.
In comparison with these monsters, the guarantee of the Autumn Festival series at WilliamHill of €400,000 looks rather modest. Nevertheless, there are two reasons why poker fans should give this series a chance – weak opponents and a high probability of overlays.
With all due respect to the regular members of the WilliamHill tournaments, you will not find such tough competition on the iPoker Network as on PokerStars, PartyPoker, 888Poker or the Winning Poker Network. In large poker rooms, players registered specifically to play online poker, while for iPoker Network the main areas are bingo and sports betting.
So, for example, while the opportunity to compete for a part of the €10,000 guarantee in the first tournament of the series can persuade many amateur players to spend an extra €10 on poker, it’s unlikely that many of them will have enough skill for getting into money or having enough patience to play in an online tournament for five to six hours.
Satellites to the Autumn Festival already on William Hill
To maximally support his autumn poker festival, William Hill presented a comprehensive schedule of satellites with the drawing of available tickets to all the Autumn Festival tournaments. Nevertheless, the satellites are not yet given due attention for the following reasons:
- Usually players until the last moment are not puzzled by getting into the tournament through the satellite;
- The last week of the Broadway Missions campaign is in progress, and players are still trying to earn tickets to the valuable Sunday All-In Shootout tournament format.
For a few more days in the satellites, special movement is not expected, which provides an opportunity to win tickets to key Autumn Festival tournaments without much effort. And certainly getting to the Autumn Festival via satellites now will be easier than after the start of the series on Friday.
With the schedule of the Autumn Festival and the satellites for this series, as well as more detailed information about the Broadway Missions, you can check out WilliamHill official website.
