SuperStack ramps up schedule for 2018

By Mad Harper

SuperStack® already plans nearly 30 events next year with events right across Spain as well as in Riga, the vibrant capital of Latvia.

 

Following a hugely successful 2017, Super Stack® has introduced the new RED and PLATINUM series of events. All Red Series tournaments have a €190 buy-in with players receiving 30,000 starting stacks and an optional 10,000 in pre-registration bonus chips. There is also an online Day 1 for the first Red Series event in Malaga! There will be 13 Red Series events next year including tournaments in Malaga, in San Roque near Gibraltar and a debut event at Seville next October. In 2017, more than €400,000 was awarded in prize money with 2,500 players taking part overall. The average prize pool was €50,000 – pretty good for a relatively low buy-in event! 

 

SuperStack Partner and Head of Marketing Anna Chachka said: “2017 has been great and tripling the number of events year on year is a good indicator of how we are going. Next year we will be focused on expanding our Costa del Sol locations as well as developing our new Latvian events. The new events offer bigger stacks and even better value with the usual great structures. The great thing about Super Stack events is that players from all over Europe and beyond can satellite in. They can also buy fantastic travel deals – in amazing locations – through Main Event Travel. That’s really what we are all about: super locations, super structures and super value.”

 

For the new Platinum Series events, there will be 15 in all, including events in Riga as well as glamorous Marbella on the Costa del Sol in Spain. Buy-ins for the Platinum Series events are £340 + €40 with players getting a super-generous starting stack of 40,000 chips plus a chunky stack of optional pre-registration bonus chips.

 

There is also a SUPER STACK® 2018 Grand Final which will take place in Marbella in December next year at a buy-in of €510 + €60. 

 

First tourneys of 2018

The very first Super Stack event of 2018 is a Red Series tournament at Casino Torrequebrada near Malaga on January 11-14 and the Platinum Series gets underway with a multi-flight tournament in Riga on January 17-21.

 

There are tons of ways to qualify for Super Stack® tournaments with exclusive partners GGPoker and Sportium (for Spain only) now hosting online satellites. GGPoker enables players in the UK and many other countries to satellite into both Super Stack® Red and Platinum series events. There are daily $1.50 rebuy qualifiers and bi-weekly $18 rebuy super satellite tournaments starting from December 3 onwards. Players who win multiple tickets will be able to ‘cash out’ their extra ones to use at  MainEventTravel, the tour’s Official Travel Partner, to help cover trip expenses.
