written by: Steve under News Comments: Comments Off

We are all familiar with the numerous tournament series that take place on PokerStars –where players can participate in the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP), the Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP), and the newly minted Turbo Championship of Online Poker (TCOOP)—and now the online poker world has the chance to gear-up for a new tournament series, this time on the Merge Gaming Network, called The Poker Maximus.

The Merge Gaming Network is one of the few remaining US-friendly poker networks on the market, which should help attendance in their Poker Maximus tournaments. The Network is made up of dozens of online poker rooms including the very popular Lock Poker and Carbon Poker.

Over the course of the 22-days the tournament series will run, the network will host 70 separate tournaments, ranging in buy-ins from a mere $1 up to over $200 for some of the “High-Roller” tournaments. Over the course of the 70 events the Merge Gaming Network has guaranteed $1.5 million in prize-money.

The Poker Maximus tournament series will begin on March 4th and run through the 25th of the month, when the Main Event will take a place:

Event #67 — Sunday March 25th 15:00: Main Event – $109 Poker Maximus **Main Event** $200,000 Guaranteed and $50,000 Minimum to first place! 7500 Chip Starting Stack and 15 Minute Levels.

On the same day the network will host a second tournament with a $200k guarantee, a $530 buy-in Super-Stack No Limit Holdem tournament. For a look at the complete schedule or for more information on the Merge Gaming Network you can visit the website: www.thePokerMaximus.com
