Tournament poker players are spoiled for choice right now with so many massive events taking place each and every day. There’s literally been no better time to specialise in online MTTs, but which tournaments should you play?
PokerNews has run its eye over the upcoming schedules and hand-picked a trio of gargantuan events that have us salivating at the prospect of seeing them play out. Without further ado, here are the latest Three Events to Watch.
WSOPC Ring Event #11: Deepstack Bounty Hunters, $500K Gtd
The 2020 WSOPC continues at GGPoker and our team is reporting on the upcoming WSOPC Ring Event #11: Deepstack Bounty Hunters tournament. This huge PKO event costs $210 to enter and has half a million dollars guaranteed to be won. Oh, and a covered WSOPC ring for the champion.
Play begins on eight-handed tables with play switching to nine-handed once the final table is reached. Everyone sits down with 20,000 chips and plays to blinds starting at 50/100/10a that increase every 12-minutes. Those levels increase to 15-minutes once Level 21 is reached.
More than a dozen $21 buy-in satellites are running between now and the start of the WSOPC Ring Event #11: Deepstack Bounty Hunters at 8:00 p.m. CET on May 19.
GGPoker hosted a similar event on May 12 and it attracted 3,615 players who created a guarantee-busting $723,000 prize pool.
Brazil’s “JoaoValli” was the last standing player and they won $84,706 from the main prize pool and $32,827 worth of bounties for a combined prize worth $117,533 plus a WSOP Circuit ring.
WPT #04 – WPTSuper50: $1M Gtd
The WPTSuper50 looks like one of the best value online poker tournaments of the year. partypoker and the World Poker Tour has guaranteed $1 million will be won for only a $55 buy-in. This means the tournament needs to attract 20,000 entries, but only approximately 7,300 have bought in so far.
Four flights remain, two on May 18 and an additional two on May 19. There’s no way there will be 13,000 fresh faces across those four flights especially as the busiest flight so far only saw 1,036-entrants compete.
WPTSuper50 Remaining Schedule

You can play in as many of the remaining flights as you wish, but you can only take your largest stack through with you if you progress more than once. First-place looks set to be a six-figure prize, imagine turning a mere $55 into six-figures. Only you can make that happen.
SCOOP-79-M: $1,050 NLHE [8-Max, Super Tuesday SE], $1M Gtd
The Super Tuesday on May 19 receives the SCOOP treatment meaning it takes place over the course of two days and has a whopping guarantee weighing in at $1 million.
The Medium version of this superb tournament costs $1,050 to enter. For that, you receive 100,000 chips and play to a 20-minute clock where blinds start at 250/500 with a running ante of 60.
Day 1 starts at 1:00 p.m. ET / 7:00 p.m. CET and continues until eight hours 50-minutes of action have passed by. Day 2 resumes at the same time on May 20 and continues until one man, or woman, is left standing. That lucky player will walk away with a monster-sized addition to their PokerStars bankroll.
The champion will also be crowned under the watchful eye of the PokerNews Live Reporting team as we are bringing you live and exclusive coverage of this $1 million guaranteed tournament.
If the $1,050 buy-in is out of your reach, PokerStars has many satellites running costing $55 and $109, making the SCOOP Super Tuesday more accessible.
Those of you with much larger bankrolls need to be aware that SCOOP Event #79 also has a $10,300 High Roller taking place alongside the Super Tuesday. This event is also being covered by our reporters.
Don’t worry if neither of these SCOOP tournaments are affordable to you because there’s a $109 Mini Super Tuesday also running. This has $600,000 guaranteed and satellites from only $5.50. Good luck!
