Ever since Americans were effectively cut off from the world’s largest iGaming sites by the events of Black Friday, the Carbon Online Poker Series has become one of the most anticipated internet card gaming events among US players. Beginning February 8, the 15-day online poker festival will feature 76 events, guaranteeing a minimum of $2 million in prize pools throughout.
The Carbon OPS offers a wide range of buy-ins to match all bankroll sizes, scaling from as low as $5.50 up to $530 (fees included). The game variety is as diverse as the price tags, spanning all limits (NL, FL and PL) and every popular poker game of our time, from NLHE and PLO, to NLO H/L and FL HORSE, to Badugi, Stud and Razz. The series will also include an array of tournament styles, like deep stacks, super deep stacks, mega stacks, 6-max and 8-max events.
Even more extraordinary is the range of Main Events scheduled for the upcoming Carbon Online Poker Series. This rendition of the Carbon OPS will feature a total of 5 Main Events, each presenting variable buy-ins. Scheduled as Events #71 through #75, the Online Poker Series Main Events are slated as follows:
Sunday, Feb 22 @ 16:00; OPS Ev#71 – $215 NLHE Main Event – $250k GTD
Sunday, Feb 22 @ 16:00; OPS Ev#72 – $11 NLHE Main Event – $40k GTD
Sunday, Feb 22 @ 16:00; OPS Ev#73 – $33 NLHE Main Event – $50k GTD
Sunday, Feb 22 @ 17:00; OPS Ev#74 – $530 NLHE Main Event – $75k GTD
Sunday, Feb 22 @ 18:00; OPS Ev#75 – $109 NLHE Main Event – $65k GTD
To help encourage early registrations, the operator is promoting a special $100 poker bonus for players of the Event #71 $215 OPS Main Event. Any player who uses cash (as opposed to tournament dollars) to register for the poker tournament, no later than 12:00 (server time) on Sunday, February 22nd, will receive a free $100 bonus. All bonuses will be issued during the first hour of the Main Event.
The $100 OPS bonus comes with standard point collection requirements, of course. Players will have 30 days to earn the bonus by generating 150 points per $1 of the bonus. Clearing the full bonus would necessitate the collection of 15,000 points by March 24th, 2015.
As usual, members of the online poker room can satellite their way into any of the five Carbon OPS Main Events. Daily satellites are already underway for Events #71, #72, #73 and $75, with price tags ranging from $1.10 to $11. Satellites for OPS Main Event #74, (which carries the largest buy-in of $530), will be held every Saturday with a $33 entry fee.
Launched in 2006, Carbon Poker has become the flagship of the Merge Gaming Network, the second most popular online poker network for American players (Bodog/Bovada being #1). One of its key selling points is a distinguished reputation that includes 100% licensing and regulation by the Antigua and Barbuda Director of Offshore Gaming.
New members of the online poker site will find a number of advantages at Carbon Poker. First and foremost, all initial deposits are met with a generous 200% up to $5,000 deposit bonus. In addition, all real-money players are privy to free DragTheBar poker training and a downloadable poker odds calculator designed to work seamlessly with the installed online poker client.
