4Poker Updates

Starting Friday 12 May, 4Poker is running 4-Max Happy Hours. Every 4-Max you play at 4Poker between 4pm-5pm UTC will enter you into a draw to win a free buy-in back at that level. 

The 4-Max buy-ins range from $1.10 up to $210 and each 4-Max you play during the hour will give you a shot at winning a buy-in back for that specific level. So if you played one $11 and one $107 you’d get one ‘ticket’ to win each. Cash credits will be made the following day.


It’s not just for branding convenience that 4Poker is now offering 4-handed sit-and-go. They’re a speedy format with 3x buy-in up top and money back for second. 

  • Starting Stack: 5,000 (50bbs)
  • Structure: 3-minute levels 
  • Payouts: 75% to the winner, 25% to runner-up 


At 4Poker, we’re trying hard to be as transparent as possible and we’re also committed to listening to – and reacting to - the playing community. We’d previously announced four guaranteed 4Sunday events: 2 x $500,000, 1 x $250,000, and 1 x $2.75m. We’ve changed the last one.

The $10,300 High Roller event (to be held on 28 May) has now had its guarantee reduced to $1.25m, which we think is still a bold stretch given 4Poker is in its second month of online tournaments. The poker room team had shifted a lot of the daily schedule towards freerolls and feeder tournaments into that High Roller event, but player feedback was telling us they wanted the $11 and $44 daily tourneys back and as a young business that guarantee was a bit too ambitious! We think it’s fair to say there’s still a lot of value with some overlays expected. There are *still* daily freeroll paths into those 4Sundays guaranteed events and we’ve kept the guarantees the same on the other three tournaments, including that very accessible $320 buy-in that we expect we carry a considerable overlay on its $500,000 guarantee.
