The $50,000 Donkament’s Have Kicked Off at Absolute Poker

Share this
Have you ever felt like every tournament you play in is a Donkament? If you do, now you can play in a real Donkament on Absolute Poker!

The barn door is waiting to be propped open so the donkeys can run out to play in Absolute Poker’s new Donkament tournament! On the second Sunday of every month the donkeys will be kicking at the barn door to get out and play at 14:30 ET when the Donkament starts. And with a $50,000 prize pool, this tournament is something to bray about - even if you aren’t a donkey!

But the Donkament isn’t open to everyone, you have to be a donkey with very long ears and a fat player point account because you can only buy-in with your AbsolutePoints! With $50k up for grabs every month, the only donkeys that can play are those that kick in 10,000 AbsolutePoints as their buy-in. Don’t have that many AbsolutePoints? Don’t start kicking and braying because Absolute Poker is offering Points Satellites to the Donkament for buy-ins as low as 200 AbsolutePoints!

Joining the other donkeys in the satellite qualifiers is easy too because the satellites run every day from 12:30 PM - 22:45 PM ET. That means no matter what time of day you break out of the barn, you can find a points qualifier to play in! Then just out donk the other donkeys and you can be on your way to the feeding trough and your share of $50k which buys a lot of hay!

Don't have enough points for the satellite qualifiers? Then gallop over to Absolute Poker by Downloading here on PokerWorks and get a first deposit bonus of 200% up to $500! Then get ready to meet your fellow donkeys in your favorite game and start earning those AbsolutePoints!

See for yourself how easy it is to accumulate player points (AbsolutePoints) which you earn with every hand you participate in. And no, you don’t have to even play the hand; you just have to be at the table and not sitting out in the field grazing. Points are awarded depending on what stakes/table limit you play, for example if you play a 2/4 limit game, you earn two points per hand! So you only need to play 100 hands at this limit to buy-in to the Donkament qualifier with your AbsolutePoints!

To keep track of how many points you earn as you play, the points you earn are clearly displayed right at the table! Every time you earn a point, a notice will flash in the chat screen that only you can see. The total points you earn for that game is also displayed on the bottom right of the table screen, right above the action buttons. You can also check your point status anytime by clicking on the ‘My Account” tab in the lobby then clicking “Fame Benefits” and “my Fame Status Details.”

And just what is FAME? Not only will you earn AbsolutePoints by playing in cash games and tournaments, but you will also accumulate FAME status points.  FAME is Absolute Poker's VIP rewards program where your rewards get bigger as you climb up the FAME ladder. The more FAME points you earn the higher VIP level you attain from Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum up to Diamond Elite. The higher your FAME VIP level, the better rewards you can buy with your AbsolutePoints, like trading your points for cash if you are a Gold or higher member.

Don’t stand in the pasture all by yourself – there are $50,000 reasons to play at Absolute Poker, when you join the other donkeys in the Donkaments!
