All poker players know that the major poker sites offer their players large guaranteed tournaments to compete in. this past weekend Absolute Poker’s $100,000 was one of the only tournaments to see an increase in the prize pool. Besides PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker, Absolute Poker had a better turnout than Bodog, Cake Poker, Titan Poker and many of the other online poker sites.
The $100,000 guaranteed tournament has a buy-in of $500 plus 30 but many players can earn their seats via satellites so they don’t have to pay the $530 buy-in to participate. This past weekend 259 players posted the buy-in to create a prize pool of $129,500.

This was an increase of $29,500 for those without a calculator. Twenty seven spots were paid during the tournament and first place would take home just over $33,000. When the competition got down to three way play it would be online players THEBUBBLE1, LOLPWNU and MATTGRAHAM left to fight for the first place prize.
THEBUBBLE1 would make a move but it would be the wrong decision and he would go out in third place. After some time, both LOLPWNU and MATTGRAHAM would go all in on the final hand. The cards would be in MATTGRAHAM’s favor and he would take home the first place prize.

Satellites for the $100k tournament start at just $1 and players can participate daily. So even if it takes a few tries, players who earn their spot via a qualifier can save money in the long run. The satellites run daily and players can find more information such as start times and buy-ins by clicking on the tournament schedule under the $100K guaranteed tournament page.

Final Results:
MATTGRAHAM – $33,670
LOLPWNU – $20,073
