Carbon Poker Announces Poker Maximus III

Carbon Poker Maximus IIIThe popular online poker tournament series on the Merge network is back – only bigger and better than ever before with 35 events and $1.4 million in guarantees!

The schedule for third Poker Maximus series – which will run from November 29th through to December 9th – has just been announced by Carbon Poker, and includes a wider variety of poker disciplines than its predecessors. Having listened to requests from players competing in the first two series, Poker Maximus III will include two Flop Limit Hold´em events, two Stud Poker events and four Pot Limit Omaha events in addition to two HORSE mixed poker tournaments.

The feature tournaments in the schedule are the $109 buy-in Poker Maximus III Main Event which has a $150,000 guaranteed prize pool, and the $530 buy-in Hi-Roller Main Event which carries a guarantee of $200,000. However, there are two other “Main Events” scheduled for the climax of the series – a “micro” buy-in tournament ($11.00) which has a guarantee of $20,000 and a “low” buy-in Main Event ($55.00) which wraps up Poker Maximus III and guarantees a prize fund of $100,000.

Poker Maximus Leaderboard Competition

Running alongside the Poker Maximus poker tournament series will be a leaderboard competition with over $5,000 in addition prizes to be won. Players who perform well in the Poker Maximus tournaments will be awarded points based on the buy-in value of the tournament, the number of players that participate in the tournament and the individual´s finishing position. A bonus multiplier is also applied to players who make the final table of any event.

In addition to the top ten players on the leaderboard winning cash prizes, unique Poker Maximus accolades will be awarded to players finishing in the top 100 leaderboard positions. Accolades appear adjacent to player´s avatars and having one which advertises you performed well in the Poker Maximus III series will strike fear into the hearts of players who join you at the table – well, you might get a little more respect than usual!

Poker Maximus Satellites

No specific Poker Maximus satellites have yet been announced, but players who win tournament tickets or coupons in the tournament satellite games currently available on Carbon Poker will be able to use them to enter Poker Maximus events. Players looking for undersubscribed satellites which offer the best opportunity to qualify for the Poker Maximus III Main Event should investigate some of the $11.00 turbo 1 re-buy tournaments which are hosted around 2.00am GMT (9.00pm server time). In some, as many as five x $109.00 tournament coupons are guaranteed, yet often no more than 30 players take part in the events! You heard it hear first, at!

Poker Maximus III Schedule

The schedule is obviously targeted to attract the maximum number of US poker players. The times quoted below are “server time” which is -5 hours GMT, so a tournament which is advertised to start at 19:00 will be kicking off at 3.00pm in Los Angeles, 6.00pm in New York, midnight in Paris and at 3.45am in Kathmandu (You can hear online Nepalese poker players complaining from here!).
