Excitement Guaranteed in the $2.5M McLaren Turbo Series

27 days ago

McLaren’s driver utilise turbochargers as they race around Grand Prix tracks at breakneck speeds. Therefore, it is fitting that the latest tournament series at partypoker has a turbo theme, bearing McLaren’s world-famous name.

The McLaren Turbo Series takes place online at partypoker from July 22 before taking the chequered flag on August 8. Players from around the world will strap themselves in and hit the partypoker tables for 68 numbered events that have combined guaranteed prize pools worth an impressive $2,500,000. Best of all? It is possible to qualify for all the McLaren Turbo Series events for free!

July 22 is the date partypoker players get their first taste of McLaren Turbo Series action. A special McLaren Turbo Series Opening Freeroll shuffles up and deals at 19:00 BST that has $5,000 worth of McLaren Turbo Series tickets in its prize pool. In addition, the top five finishers get their hands on a McLaren goody bag crammed full of McLaren merchandise! This is your first chance to win your shot at the big time for free. Imagine turning this freeroll entry into an opportunity where you can race off with a massive score.

The first green light of the series shines brightly at 20:00 BST on July 22 with a trio of Opener events. The Opener Low only costs $0.55 to enter yet has $1,500 guaranteed. The Opener Medium has a $15,000 guarantee for a $5.50 buy-in, while the $55 buy-in Opener High boasts of a $100,000 guaranteed prize pool.

The three-tiered buy-in system continues throughout the McLaren Turbo series, making the festival’s tournaments accessible to all. Once you are past the freerolls and centrolls, McLaren Turbo Series events’ buy-ins range from $0.55 and top out at $215, the larger amount being the buy-in of the eagerly anticipated McLaren Turbo Series Main Event.

McLaren Turbo Series Main Events

Your first chance to try and make it onto the podium of the trio of McLaren Turbo Series Main Events is July 24, when Day 1 of the Micro, Mini, and Main Events shuffles up and deals. Additional Day 1s occur on July 31, August 7, and August 8, with the champion crowned on August 8. Spraying champagne is optional if you win.

$3.30 buys you into the Micro Main Event, where you jostle for a share of a guaranteed $10,000, with $22 getting you in on the Mini Main Event action where at least $100,000 is up for grabs. Players in the $215 buy-in McLaren Turbo Series Main Event go head-to-head for a slice of the $300,000 guaranteed prize pool. Each Main Event is played as a progressive knockout tournament. As an added incentive to play the McLaren Turbo Series High Main Event, the winner receives the unbelievable prize of an all-expenses-paid trip for two to the Brazilian Grand Prix this November!

It does not matter which buy-in level you play; the blind structure is exactly the same. Everyone sits down with 150,000 chips and plays to a turbo-charged clock that increases every five minutes, starting at 15/30. Late registration is open until the end of the 12th level, and each Day 1 ends when only 15% of the field remains. Those top 15% progress to Day 2 with their Day 1 stacks having locked in at least a min-cash for their efforts.

The Main Events also operate a “best stack forward” policy, which means you can play in as many Day 1s as you wish even if you progress to Day 2. Only your best stack is in play on Day 2, with any other stacks forfeited.
