The Poker Action is Red Hot This Autumn With the PartyPoker Grand Prix
Grab your diaries and make sure your schedules are free from October 6-24 because those are the dates the epic Grand Prix Autumn Edition takes place online at PartyPoker. There are still a couple of weeks of the MILLIONS Online remaining, but it pays to plan ahead and prepare to hit the PartyPoker tables throughout the Grand Prix Autumn Edition.
PartyPoker players competing in the Grand Prix Autumn Edition have 11 action-packed progressive knockout events to choose from, tournaments with buy-ins starting at only $11 and increasing to $320. Of course, it would not be a PartyPoker online festival without our famous satellites running alongside each event. Those satellites mean you could be playing for megabucks for as little as a single cent!
October 6 sees the first Day 1s of four Grand Prix Autumn Edition events shuffle up and deal. Hit the tables nice and early and book your place on Day 2 with at least a min-cash in tow. Getting involved early means you can enter another Day 1 if you failed to progress to Day 2, or play another flight if you are not happy with your Day 2’s stack size. Please note that only your largest stack goes through to Day 2 if you make it through more than once.
The opening day of the Grand Prix Autumn Edition kicks off with the Opener, an 8-Max No-Limit Hold’em PKO event that costs $33 to enter and has a cool $75,000 guaranteed prize pool. Denmark’s Magnus Thomsen triumphed in the Summer Edition of the Opener, outlasting 2,434 opponents to secure a $8,313 payday.
Also taking place on October 6 are the first flights for the $215 buy-in $200,000 guaranteed 6-Max Championship, the $22 buy-in $75,000 guaranteed Mini 6-Max Championship, and the first Day 1 of the massive $500,000 guaranteed Grand Prix Autumn Edition Main Event, which commands a $109 buy-in.

The Summer Edition of the popular Grand Prix was a roaring success, with 5,212 PartyPoker players taking to the tables and creating a guarantee-busting $521,200 prize pool! Seven different countries were represented at the final table, which ended in a Brazilian one-two. Lucas Ferreira Alves defeated fellow countryman Igor Leao Versiani heads-up to bank a $49,693 score, leaving the runner-up to pad their PartyPoker account balance with a still impressive $31,621. Will it be your name that adorns the PartyPoker Blog when the Grand Prix Autumn Edition Main Event crowns its champion? You know you have the skills to make that happen.
It is not only the Main Event that has players tingling with excitement because the Mini Main Event is only mini in name. Play for the largest slice of the $100,000 guaranteed prize pool for only an $11 investment, or perhaps showcase your skills in the $55 buy-in $150,000 guaranteed Super 50.
The High Rollers among you will be delighted to learn there are two high roller events on the schedule. Both cost $320 to enter, with the $250,000 guaranteed 7-Max High Roller commencing on October 8, with the $200,000 guaranteed 6-Max High Roller kicking off on October 17.
