$10,000 Exclusive Bonus Main Event
Another $10k MTT will be played at the same time that the Trick or Treat Missions Main Event. The entry to this tournament can be obtained either by completing a new mission (200 raked hands, 20 MTT's, 25 Windfalls, 100 raked hands (Boost), 25 SNG's), or by accomplishing all weekly tasks.
Players can see the status of the missions in the lobby, visiting the Cashier > Active Contests section.
$250,000 GTD Freebuy Super Series

To amend this situation, WPN announced a $250,000 tournament series for grabs. Six tournaments are scheduled for each day from October 16 to November 3, and GTD prize pools start from $150 up to $20,000 for the Main Event scheduled for Sunday, November 3.

The schedule includes NLH and PLO events both in 6-max and 8-max formats, and although these are freerolls, players will have the possibility to rebuy and make add-ons.
Each player will receive a free 1,000 initial stack, rebuys will give 2,500 chips and add-ons 10,000; some events will also offer free rebuys. Rebuys and add-ons in the Main Event cost $20.
Both promotions held by American poker networks have a common driver: attract more amateur players to the tables;
- Chico Poker is offering $60k to participate in cash games (regular and fast) and SnG tournaments, meaning that new players will join the tables looking for entry to the MTTs only;
- Although Winning Poker is trying to amend the issues related to its software update, surely, amateur players will boost their bankrolls in the Freebuy Series, which will lead to increased traffic.
