Win The Button Tourneys At Pokerstars

Kicks off with eleven daily tournaments

PokerStars has introduced "Win The Button" No-Limit Hold'em tournaments, a format that has proven popular at live events and which was played in Event 59 of the World Championship of Online Poker.
"Win The Button" rewards the winner of each hand with the dealer button for the next round, an advantage that provides an added strategic element to each hand. In the case of a split pot, the button moves to the winning player closest to the left of the existing button. The player on the button gets to act last, which is a major benefit at the poker table.
PokerStars will kick-off eleven daily "Win The Button" tournaments with buy-ins ranging from $2.20 to $162. In addition, there will be two weekly 'majors' held on Saturdays; one $55 buy-in with a $25,000 guarantee and the 'Mini Major' with a buy-in of $5.50 with a $5,000 guarantee.
"We are proud to continue to deliver exciting and innovative games, the largest variety of tournaments anywhere in the world and to be the home of online poker," Severin Rasset, director of poker innovation and operations at PokerStars, said.

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
