With online poker players flocking to play online during the Coronavirus climate we now live in, the announcement of a groundbreaking Poker Masters Online Series will come as great news to players around the world.

poker-central-and-partypoker-announce-new-online-series2With over $15 million in guarantees across 30 events, the Online Poker Masters will feature high roller events from start to finish, with buy-ins ranging from $10,300 in most events up to $51,000 in the $2 million guaranteed Main Event, which takes place on Sunday 26th April.

With the series taking place from Sunday 12th April and lasting 15 days from top to tail, there are three very big Sundays to look forward to, with the collaboration between poker brands partypoker and Poker Central one that makes poker history.

The Managing Director of partypoker, Tom Waters put out a statement declaring, “We are pleased to be able to give players the chance to continue doing what they love and play the tournament in online format. The Poker Masters brand carries significant weight in the poker community, and we believe this innovative online format will be appealing for fans and players alike.”

As ever, the winner of the Online Poker Masters Series will receive what all Poker Masters win, the much-coveted Poker Masters purple jacket. It’s clear that partypoker aren’t the only ones looking forward to the Poker Masters moving online. Poker Central’s President, Sam Simmons, said: “We know partypoker is the right landing spot for our tournament brand to evolve into a new format. We value this partnership as a way to bring the poker community together in these uncertain times.”

Much has been made of how there are live events being cancelled, but as Poker Central and partypoker have proved, these events can be run remotely and while some of the surrounding extras that accompany live events will be missed, the art of playing top quality poker and for poker fans, watching it and reading all about the drama the next day cannot be taken away by the isolating nature of life during the health crisis. With previous trips to the Bahamas and central Europe now looking like they might be under threat as live tour stops, any collaboration rather than cancellation must be seen as a good thing.

Here’s the full schedule of events. Are you planning on playing? With million up for grabs, the satellites will be juicier than a basket of nectarines.
