New Year’s Eve Sunday Special could spell big overlay
This weekend is pretty historic. No, we don’t have anything new on the schedule, but it marks the last Sunday in which the biggest guaranteed tourney on the schedule is six figures.
That’s because starting January 7th, we’re introducing a weekly $1,000,001 guaranteed tournament to our weekend schedule. That’s in addition to our $150,000 GTD Sunday Special, so if you prefer to play for less prize money, that tourney is still in play.
So why are we mentioning this weekend’s $150,000 tournament when there’s a way bigger one around the corner? Well, it’s because this Sunday is New Year’s Eve and when a major holiday falls on a Sunday, overlays are in the picture.
Take a look at last Sunday’s $150,000 guaranteed, which fell on Christmas Eve. We had a massive overlay in that one. We’re talking $45,000. For real. Last Sunday, we only had enough players to fuel the prize pool to $105,000, so we had to reach into our own pockets and top up the tourney.
This Sunday could offer very much of the same, which means that if you play in it and the prize pool is significantly smaller than what’s guaranteed, you’ve got yourself one of the best valued tourneys on the planet.
