It might seem like stating the obvious to say that there’s a lot of poker to look forward to at 32Red, but there is indeed even more juicy stuff than usual to get stuck into thanks to our Escalator tournament series.
Between 9-16 April we’ll be hosting 29(!) special events, with guaranteed prize funds totaling €200,000. There’ll be an assortment of freezeouts and rebuys, full-ring and 6-max tables, with varying buy-ins. The theme of the series is that each successive tournament will have bigger starting stacks and longer blind levels than the previous one – hence the name Escalator – and, as the week progresses, a certain amount of versatility will be needed to navigate your way through the various tournaments.
By the time of the €320 buy-in Main Event – which boasts €75,000 in prize money, a hefty 10,000-chip starting stack and 15-minute blinds – poker fans will have experienced a whole range of tournament dynamics. Too many players underestimate the implications of stack sizes and what is effectively the cadence of the blinds, but the optimal play for the same hand in the same position is heavily influenced by relative stack sizes and the blind structure…
Highlighting the contrast, and getting the series off to a fun start, will be the inclusion of so-called Flip tournaments, where everyone is all-in each hand until a sole winner emerges. After that, events will be decreasingly frenetic until the deeper stacks and longer blind levels test players’ patience and staying power.
It wouldn’t be the same without a bonus to aim for, and the target here is to play 10 or more Escalator events by April 15th, the reward for which is a free ticket (worth €22) for a Main Event Mega Satellite!
$62,000 and rising!

Sunday 24th April at 6pm (UK time)
Our €750,000 Guaranteed Tournament is a 2-day event and runs on a quarterly basis throughout the year, at 6pm (UK time). The tournament is played on the popular game of no-limit Texas Hold’em and offers 10,000 starting chips, 20 minute blind levels, 30 seconds response time and a 120-second time bank for those all important decisions! You can buy in directly to the tournament for €300 + €20 but there are plenty of cheap qualifying tournaments available throughout the month. The game is a ‘Freezeout’ which means that re-buys are not allowed, however late-registrations are allowed during the first two hours.
