MPN take it to the next level with Escalator tournament series

ISLE OF MAN – The MPN announces the inaugural Escalator series, with €200,000 guaranteed over eight days of No Limit Hold’em tournaments, starting Sunday 9 April 2017.

Every day throughout the series, the tournaments get deeper and deeper, with the stack sizes and level lengths increasing. The series starts out with a €1 Flip tournament, and builds to a climactic €320 Main Event with 10,000 starting chips, 15 minute levels and €75,000 guaranteed! 

In addition, a bonus promotion rewards players who play at least 10 events with a free ticket worth €22 to the Main Event Mega Satellite on Sunday 16 April 2017.

Escalator is the latest tournament series concept to be launched by the MPN, complementing the existing range which includes The Classic (no frills, back to basics events), Festival of Speed (fast-paced events), Four Card Fright Fest (Omaha events) and the Universal Championship of Poker (the network’s flagship series, with big prizes and unique rewards for player engagement).

“The MPN is focused on growing tournaments in 2017, and building on the success of the thrilling tournament series we ran in 2016. Escalator is the newest addition to our portfolio, and I’m sure that players are going to love the variety and excitement that’s on offer throughout”.
