Cheap Stakes BetMGM Poker Michigan December 2021

If ever you’ve felt intimidated by tournament-level poker, BetMGM Poker in Michigan is in the holiday mood to put your mind at (relative) ease with its Cheap Stakes Tournament Series here over the holidays.

BetMGM announced the December poker series this week through its Partypoker US network. It’ll run from Dec. 17-26.

“Cheap Stakes provides low-stakes players a chance at great prizing on the heels of last month’s End Boss series, during which we hosted events with higher stakes across the board,” said Luke Staudenmaier, BetMGM’s director of poker, in a company news release. “We’re thrilled to roll this out for the first time across all of our live markets.”

Here’s more about the holiday series, including dates, events and guarantees.

More on the BetMGM Poker Cheap Stakes series

The first BetMGM Poker Cheap Stakes Tournament Series is a low-stakes tournament series with daily buy-ins of $20 and $50.

It’s as simple as that, for the most part. There will be two events daily, one beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET and the other at 8 p.m. The identities of the events and buy-ins flip between when the $50 and $20 events will be staged, so be mindful of the schedule before you play.

In all, the series offers a more modest total of $102,500 in guarantees.

The tournament schedule is below in full.
