Poker tournaments serve as one of the most exciting formats due to the fact that every player has a very real chance of converting a relatively moderate initial investment into a quite huge cash amount. It is natural that most of gamblers, viewers, and mass media focus on poker tournaments with significant buy-ins, since their prize pools are much higher. However, the poker world is very versatile and is not limited to this kind of events.
The online poker room called PartyPoker launched the Bootcamp Series of daily micro-limit tournaments, whose weekly guaranteed prize pools reached 63,000 dollars, despite the fact that the largest buy-in was only 2.20 dollars.
To correspond the pugilistic theme of the site, the Bootcamp Series on the website PartyPoker includes the following versions of tournaments: Lightweight, Middleweight, Heavyweight, and High Rollers.
The Bootcamp Series offers both No-Limit Hold'em tournaments and Omaha Poker tournaments. Buy-ins in Hold 'em tournaments range from 0.22 dollars to 1.10 dollars, while in Omaha tournaments they vary between 1.10 USD and 2.20 USD. Among the most interesting tournaments, it is important to mention 6-max turbo tournaments with buy-ins of 0.55 dollars, 50USD GPP Tournament, as well as 2 No Limit Hold'em Night Tournaments with buy-ins of 1.10 dollars. Their guaranteed prize pool reaches $1,000. In order to provide players who prefer micro limits with the widest range of poker games and formats of tournaments, organizers have changed the format of Hold'em Reentry and Rebuy tournaments, as well as Omaha and Omaha Hi/Low Bounty and Speed Down tournaments. Such changes imply an increase in time intervals between blinds during making progress in the tournament.
