Ignition Poker Makes Subtle Changes to Monster Stack Events

Posted on by John Lathram

Ignition Poker's Monster StackWith the summer vacation season out of the way, Ignition Poker has made subtle changes to its Monster Stack events and increased many prize pool guarantees.

Ignition Poker´s three-times-daily Monster Stack events are some of the most popular tournaments on the site. The big starting stacks and long levels give players an opportunity to play in a tournament with the sort of structure usually reserved for big Main Events, with enough chips to recover from a bad beat or an error of judgement during the early levels.

Last week, the site made some subtle changes to the Monster Stack events – changing the starting times, the amount of some buy-ins, and a few structures. The site also increased many prize pool guarantees – most noticeably for the 7:20pm ET games (previously 7:00pm ET games) which now have guaranteed prize pools of around $5,000 more than before.

There has also been changes made to the satellites feeding into the Monster Stack events. There are more satellites than before, some with lower buy-ins than before, and most offering a higher number of guaranteed seats into the target event than before. Players have responded well to these changes, with many Monster Stack events smashing their guarantees by up to 66 percent.

The New Monster Stack Schedule

Ignition Poker has said it will maintain the schedule below until Saturday October 12th. This leads me to believe there will be a big tournament series starting soon after into which the Monster Stack events will be incorporated. However, for the next five weeks or so, players will be able to feast themselves on these three-times-daily events:

In all Monster Stack tournaments, players start with 15,000 chips. One re-entry is allowed during late registration except for the two Turbo events on Fridays (4 re-entries allowed) and the 7:40pm events on Saturdays and Sundays (2 re-entries allowed). Late registration in most events lasts for 16 levels – the exceptions being the two Turbo events on Fridays in which late registration is allowed for 135 minutes.

Monster Stack Satellites Starting at Just $2.20

On the Ignition Poker website, it states that you can satellite into Monster Stack events from as little as $3.85, but I found a couple of $2.20 qualifiers for the $27.50 events taking place at 6:41am and 6:21pm. Further satellites for the $27.50 buy-in Monster Stack events take place throughout the day with buy-ins of $3.30, $4.40, and $5.50. You can also play in any of Ignition Poker´s “satellites to any $27.50 event” which guarantee up to four tickets depending on the time of day.

If you win a ticket “to any $27.50 event”, you can use it to enter one of several daily satellites to the $162 buy-in Monster Stack. These again guarantee up to four seats for the target event depending on the time of day; plus there is also a “last chance” qualifier with a $27.50 buy-in at 7:01pm which should finish in time for you to take your seat in the target Monster Stack tournament (assuming you win a ticket) before the close of late registration.

A Great Opportunity to Win Yourself a Monster Stash

As I mentioned earlier, the changes to the Monster Stack tournaments have had a great response and the final prize pools are smashing their guarantees. If you would like to get involved and have the opportunity to win yourself a monster stash, visit Ignition Poker today. If you´re not already playing at the site, you may be entitled to a first deposit bonus of up to $1,000.
