partypoker Launches Weekly SIT & GO Leaderboards with $23,500 in Prizes

SIT and Go tournaments on partypoker just got a whole lot more interesting with the announcement that new weekly leaderboard races have been launched, with $23,500 in prizes every week…

By: Andrew Burnett

Split into four buy-in levels, each weekly race will see cash and tournament $ handed out to the best performers (as seen below), the leaderboards running from Monday (00:00 CET) to Sunday (23:59 CET).

  • Low (buy-ins: $1 - $9.99): $1,000 prize pool
  • Mid (buy-ins: $10 - $49.99): $5,000 prize pool
  • High (buy-ins: $50 – 199.99): $10,000 prize pool
  • High Roller (buy-ins: $200+): $7,500 prize pool

partypoker’s Team Online pro Jaime Staples said of the exciting new initiative: “I started my professional career hunting SIT & GO leaderboards. It’s a great way to practice and I love that partypoker is now offering something to shoot for!”

Heads-up and Spins SNGs aren’t included, but everything else is fair game for those who fancy the race to the top and the extras on offer.

Here is the full breakdown of weekly prizes per leaderboard, ranging from from $2 in Tournament Dollars (T$) up to $2,500 cash.

Fellow partypoker pro Steven 'DWstevie' Kok is another fan of the traditional SIT & GO format, explaining: “They are great practice for short-handed and short-stack play, and for learning ICM as you get into those spots way more often than in large field MTTs. They also have lower variance and thus are great to help you build that bankroll!”
