The first-ever open-face Chinese Poker tournament series is coming to your desktop from April 28th - May 8th, 2014, and features 12 different events with as much as €25,000 in guaranteed prize pools — courtesy of TonyBet Poker!!!
"This is what we have been working towards to all this time," TonyBet Poker founder Tony G told PokerNews.com. "We wanted to give players the best online open-face Chinese poker experience and I'm very happy with the result."
A €10 Pineapple tournament will kick off the series on April 28th at 10 PM (UTC+3) and packs a whopping €1,000 guaranteed prize pool which is most assuredly guaranteed to bring the open-face Chinese poker player in you right to the tables.
"I'm positive this is going to be a great series," said Tony G. "There are loads of cash to be won and hopefully a lot of players will come to play. If not, we will have overlays, which is also good for the players. At TonyBet Poker, we want to reward every player and this is a great way to do this."
After the initial event, get ready to play 10 more tournaments that lead to a grand finale — the €25 MAYjor Event! The MAYjor Event is set to put cards in the air on May 8th and promises to be the biggest OFC poker tournament ever held due to the €5,000 guarantee.
"I will be playing most of the tournaments and am very much looking forward to it," Tony G continued. "Maybe I will even put a bounty on my head, who knows. The only way to find out is to play."
Joining Tony G in his excitement and anticipation of the series is Brazil’s Pedro Marte. Marte is the pro and open-face champion at TonyBet Poker and had this to say:
"I'm very excited to start playing OFC poker tournaments for big prizes and the OFC Opener series will be the best opportunity for that," he told PokerNews.com.
"I will try to play all events and see how I do on the rankings and can't wait for the €5K MAYjor Event. I've talked to some OFC players about this event and they are all waiting for it."
The €1,000 guaranteed initial event and the €5,000 guaranteed finale are the bookends of 10 more tournaments in the series of that buy-ins ranging from €10 to €100. May 4th will bring the massive action to the tables that high rollers crave in the form of the €300 High Roller Special that boasts a €3,000 guaranteed prize pool.
"High-stakes players are very much looking forward to playing the biggest tournaments," said Marte. "While the less experienced have the chance to win prizes that can actually turn their OFC careers around. OFC Opener has everything it needs to make history."
