Christmas Freeze Highlights
It is a hard task to choose a handful of Christmas Freeze highlights as there are so many value-packed events available. It is worth mentioning that at 19:00 CET every day during the Christmas Freeze festival, there are five events shuffling up and dealing that have buy-ins of $3.30, $11, $33, $109 and $530 that have guaranteed prize pools many times bigger than their buy-ins.
For example, Christmas Freeze #02-M: $100K Gtd [PKO] has a $100,000 guaranteed prize pool for a buy-in of $33, while its $3.30 buy-in cousin features a whopping $15,000 guaranteed prize pool, which is huge in comparison to the entry cost.
You’ll find three Christmas Freeze events that have $300,000 guaranteed prize pools and a total of 45 events with guarantees of at least $100,000! These will award massive prizes for a $530 buy-in, less if you win your way into them via the many satellites running around the clock.
