Common Cents returns this Sunday. $100K Gtd for opener. Buy-in for a penny

Even the greats started somewhere.

All those musicians, artists, athletes. Even the TV chefs had to start small.

It's the same in poker.

It might be around a kitchen table, or even online, but poker starts with pennies. And scooping a win that jingles can feel just as great as the type that folds.

Even the greats started somewhere...

Common Cents has the jingling buy-ins, just not the jingling prize pools. Take Event 01 for instance.

It starts at 14:05 ET this Sunday, and has a buy in of just one cent.

What do you get for that penny? A shot at a Guaranteed prize pool of $100,000.

Turns out that kitchen table game with Grandma was all the experience you needed to win thousands of dollars.

Every one of the 23 Common Cents tournaments cost less than a dollar to play.

Those are buy-ins you'd find down the back of the sofa, in the glove compartment, in your old jeans, and that draw in the kitchen where everything seems to end up.

In fact, you can play the entire series for $12.77.

That makes it a great place to turn a few cents into a bankroll.

Here's the full schedule.
