Move over, World Series of Poker Online Series, there is a new online player in town and its name is The GGPoker Good Game Series of Poker.
Created in the spirit of the WSOP Online Series with a twist and set to take place at the closure of the WSOP Online, the Good Game Series of Poker is the affordable option for poker fans looking to practice their skills. Read on for all the details on the latest GGPoker tournament and its stellar cash prize.
What is the Good Game Series?
The ggpoker.com Good Game Series of Poker is swiftly becoming one of the hottest online tournaments in the poker calendar. Details are kept close to the chest right now, since it’s still early in the year, but if the last two tournaments are anything to go by, it’s going to be bigger and better than ever. That goes for the prizes too.
The GGSOP was designed on the idea that it’s an affordable online poker tournament. The buy-ins are small but the prizes that can be won are potentially huge. The buy-ins start at $2.60 and go no further than $50, and yet the guaranteed prize is $7 million!
The professionals have had their moment in Vegas, the WSOP Online Circuit has wrapped up, and now the casual players, the beginners, and those with the passion to advance will get their moment to shine.
There were 54 events over a matter of 15 days last year, with loads of variants on the game that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. There’s Texas Hold’em, limit or no limit, Omaha and more. Whatever your budget, your experience, your favourite game, you will find something in the schedule.
What are the biggest events?
Last year’s total guaranteed prize came to a whopping $7 million. Considering that was up from $6.5 million the year before, it’s a safe bet to assume that it will be even bigger this year.
There are also a range of special events to get involved with, like the $15 Millionaire Maker Jr, which could see you enter with $15 and leave a millionaire. If that has a nice ring to it, you can join the $50 MILLION$ tournament, which has a prize pool of $1 million. You can head to the $25 FLIP Ladies Event for some fun time with the girls and win a guaranteed prize of $100,000.
Given the popularity of these events, you can expect to see them all again this year, with perhaps a few new events to keep things interesting.
How can I get involved?
Some of those offers look far too good to pass up. For as little as $2.50 you can win thousands!
