Limber up, put your gloves on, and prepare to step into the ring where you’ll play for a guaranteed $100,000 in the brand new Cobra tournament.
Taking place at 7:00 p.m CET (1:00 p.m ET) on Sunday 31st January 2016, the $100,000 Cobra tournament is not to be missed mainly because it has some ridiculous value for those of you who love bounty tournaments.
The buy-in for The Cobra is $100+$9 with $82 of the buy-in going towards the prize pool and the other $20 being placed on the head of each player. Knockout an opponent, sending them to the rail, and you’ll win their $20. Bust five foes and you’re essentially freerolling your way towards a slice of the $100,000 guaranteed prize pool!
Winning $20 for each player you eliminate is exciting enough, but what until you hear about the massive bounties on the heads of our celebrity players. Claim the stack of the likes of Dusk Till Dawn owner Rob Yong, Formula 1’s Simon Lazenby, Made in Chelsea’s Jamie Laing, Simon “Aces” Trumper, or our very own ambassador and four-time world champion boxer Carl Froch, and you’ll win a heavyweight bounty of $2,000, how amazing is that?
These special bounty players frequent the partypoker felt under the following aliases, and will have a “B” symbol next to their names in the lobby to help identify them.
- Carl Froch: Carl_Froch
- Rob Yong: Rob_Yong_
- Simon Trumper: Simon_Trumper
- Simon Lazenby: Lazers75
- Jamie Laing: JamieLaing_UK
Win Your Way to The Cobra $100,000
While some of you will fancy ponying up the $109 and buying into the Cobra $100,000 directly, those of you wanting to get in on the action cheaply can do exactly that via Ticket satellites, special daily Mega Sats, or put your points to good use in the Points Store.
Tickets satellites run around the clock with buy-ins starting as low as $0.01. You may think it is a long shot turning $0.01 into a potentially huge prize, but Terry Green recently did this when he turned a $0.01 investment into a victory in the $50,000 Uppercut worth $9,625!
You can see the special daily Mega Sats schedule in the image below; each give you the chance to turn $22 into a $109 ticket that can be used for this spectacular event.
Those of you out there with plenty of points to spare can swap them in the Points Store for a $109 tournament ticket, so long as you’re a Silver VIP or higher.
- Silver: 3,000 points
- Gold: 1,500 points
- Palladium: 1,000 points
Get In Some Bounty Practice
Although Bounty tournaments play to the same rules as a standard tournament, the fact there are bounties present adds a different element to the game. Before you jump into the ring with Froch and Co. on January 31, why not get some practice in by playing some bounty tournament at partypoker? Check out the lobby for tournaments with a target logo next to them, the biggest of these is a $55 buy-in ($26 to the prize pool and $26 per bounty) aptly called The Knockout every Sunday at 7:30 p.m CET (1:30 p.m ET).
