New Online Series Underway at Jack Poker
As predicted last week by PokerWired, the inaugural Big Bang Sunday on Jack Poker fell well short of its $30,000 guarantee. It needed 1,112 entries to avoid an overlay and fell short by almost 150 buy-ins. The 966 players who took part contributed $26,082 towards the payouts, while Jack Poker footed the bill for the difference, which amounted to an overlay of $3,918. The tournament is to be a monthly event and will take place on the first Sunday of each month. Jack Poker has yet to confirm the exact date of the second running of Big Bang Sunday, but it is expected to have satellites running for it throughout the preceding month.

Nuclear 4s Series Launches

With the first Big Bang Sunday monthly event now completed, attention on Jack Poker has switched to a new low buy-in series of tournaments, Nuclear 4s. It began on 12 February, featuring tournaments with buy-ins ranging from $1 to $44 and runs until 3 March. Each tournament has a guarantee that is between 450-1,000x the buy-in, which is a pretty big deal for Jack Poker, where most regular mtts don’t get over 200 players and overlays abound.

The festival reaches its pinnacle on Sunday 3 March, with a $44,000 guaranteed $44 buy-in main event and an accompanying $4,400 guaranteed $4.40 Mini Main Event. Between now and then there are six Nuclear 4s tournaments per day at the following (UK) times: 12.30am, 5am, 12.30pm, 4pm, 7pm and 9pm. Most of the tournaments are priced at between $3 and $10, however there are some as low as $1 and a few that reach $20.

What's in the Name?

If you’re wondering what the name is all about, it’s a reference to the combined guarantees of the 120 tournaments that make up the series, which in total add up to a four-tabulous $444,000!  So far the festival has started well, with small overlays in some of the events, while others have managed to just surpass their guarantees. All in all its a pretty good offering for a site with tournament liquidity that usually can’t support guarantees of this level and for those of us who love overlays, that $44 main event looks like a tasty morsel!
