Features of the series
Two weeks after Vbet Poker (BetConstruct Poker Network) held the first specialized series of turbo MTTs— Shock Turbo Series— another festival in the same format, but with enhanced features, was announced.
From August 28 to September 5, 2021, the AfterShock Series festival will be held in the rooms of the BetConstruct network (Vbet Poker), guaranteeing €150,000 across 63 scheduled events.
The main difference from the "test" version is the increase in the overall guarantee by a third at once, although the number of tournaments has been reduced by almost half! Hence, the average guarantee will be €2,381— this is the highest figure among all series from the BetConstruct network this year. It seems overlays don't concern the network.
A few details of the upcoming festival:
- At least 7 daily tournaments with buy-ins from €1,1 to €55
- Daily headliners with buy-ins from €12 to €33 and guaranteed up to €10,000. The winners of each tournament will get unique cups.
- The main event (€55 buy-in) with a prize pool of €30,000 will need to collect at least 600 entries to cover the guarantee and avoid an overlay.
- The tournaments will start from 16:00 in the European afternoon and until midnight, which will allow players living in different time zones to participate in them.
- A €5,000 leaderboard will reward the best 20 players.
- Step satellites starting from freerolls.
The full AfterShock Series schedule is available here.
The points awarded towards the leaderboard will be tied to the buy-in, and there will be no division into groups. 1 point is given:
- For every €1 paid in buy-ins
- For every €1 re-entry at the Daily Main Events, the Main Event, and the Opener event. In other tournaments, re-entry only gives half a point.
Players will be able to make a separate contribution to the piggy bank of points due to knockouts (almost all series tournaments will be played in PKO format). Additional points will be calculated according to the following formula:
(Number of knockouts (X) Buy-in of the tournament) / 4
But, that's not all. Extra points will be given for reaching ITM and getting into the TOP8.
Such a complex system allows taking into account all the achievements of the player: the number of tournaments played, knockouts, the final place, and the desire to keep playing (re-entry).
Main Event and satellites
You can play the Main Event of the series with a certain tenacity for free. Several step satellites will be held daily in the room:
- Freeroll guaranteeing 8 tickets of €1.1
- €1.1 tournament with 8 tickets of €5.5
- €5.5 tournament with five entries to the ME
All MTT qualifiers are turbo rebuys with a small number of participants. Even in freerolls, the maximum number of players is limited to 100.
For those who don't like playing massive series like WSOP Online, WPT Online, or WCOOP, AfterShock Series is the best choice. Let's recall softer lineups, satellites, and a profitable rakeback deal from WPD.
