There is a common myth among certain poker players that goes something like this: the more people who buy into a guaranteed tournament, the better. This line of thinking comes about because some players believe a prize pool that goes over the guaranteed amount is great simply due to the fact that there’s more money involved. However, these people couldn’t be more wrong!
The truth is that players should hope for as few people as possible to buy into a guaranteed poker tournament. After all, if there aren’t enough players to cover the entire prize pool then the room itself will have to put up some of the money themselves. And if the room has to cover some of the prize pool, then the players will be getting more value for their buy-ins. And as a player, you have fewer people to beat to make the money. This has been happening quite often with the Bodog Poker $100,000 Guaranteed tournament that takes place every Sunday.
In fact just last Sunday, only 621 people paid the $100 buy-in to enter the $100K Guaranteed meaning that Bodog Poker had to put up $37,900 of the hundred grand themselves. To put this into a larger perspective, this means that players were actually getting the value of a $161 buy-in for the $100 they spent to enter. After everything was settled, about 15% of the people who entered the tournament cashed which is way higher than you’ll see in many other guaranteed tournaments.
If you can’t wait to get into the $100,000 Guaranteed and start taking advantage of these high-valued buy-ins, then sign up for Bodog Poker using the POKERWORKS bonus code.

As far as how the people from last week’s $100,000 Guaranteed did, “nutzkrackr” won the tournament off of a $100 buy-in and made $23,600 for the win. “links1136” was right behind nutzkrackr in second place and cashed out for $13,600. Finishing in third was “ponyneck” and this player was able to make $9,100 for rounding out the top 3. More results from last Sunday’s Bodog $100,000 Guaranteed are below:
