Carbon Poker Increases Sunday Guaranteed From $50K to $100K!

Written by Sadonna | Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

Carbon Poker has seen a large increase in traffic since Black Friday when Full Tilt Poker, Absolute Poker and PokerStars were shut down in the United States. After Black Friday, players were not able to log on to their accounts at the shut down poker rooms so they started joining poker rooms still available to US players such as Carbon Poker.

Since the online poker room has seen such an increase in online poker players they are now going to increase the guaranteed prize pool for the weekly Sunday Guaranteed tournament. The tournament currently has a buy-in of $109 and featured prizepool of $50,000 guaranteed.

However, as of earlier this week, the site announced it will be upping its $50K guarantee and is doubling it to make it $100K in guaranteed cash for their most popular MTT!

The poker room is offering players a chance to win their seat to the tournament by participating in the 100 Seats to the $100k Freeroll. Players simply earn 250 VIP points from the start of Sunday until the free roll starts on the Saturday before the tournament at 3 PM est. Once the VIP points have been earned players can visit the Player Admin and select the “100 Seats to 100K” option. Players can then register for the tournament and hopefully win a seat to the big Sunday$100K.

Because Carbon Poker has seen such an increase in poker traffic – around 23% since Black Friday – they have been able to increase the guarantees on dozens of different tournaments similar to this one, especially at mid-stakes levels. ¬†We’re looking forward to what else Carbon has in store for players, especially since they have become on of the “go to” websites for online poker players here in the USA as well.
