The world’s fast-growing online poker site – GGPoker continues to raise the bar. After roping in poker pro Bertrand Grospellier aka ‘ElkY’ and Tennis legend Boris Becker as its brand ambassadors, the site is in the news for joining hands with WSOP to host the World Series of Poker Super Circuit Online Circuit Series. Running from May 3 to May 31, the series boasts a record-breaking $100 million in guarantees across 595 events, making it the biggest online poker festival in the world.
Talking about the upcoming series, Ty Stewart, the Executive Director of World Series of Poker, said,“GGPoker just seriously raised the bar,” he said in a statement. “We’re tremendously proud to see that GGPoker’s first international WSOP-C series will sit amongst the biggest online events of all time.”
Head of Poker for GG, Jean-Christophe Antoine, said,“GGPoker is the first and only poker room to guarantee at least $100,000,000 in cash prizes in a single tournament series — our WSOP Super Circuit Online Series is a game-changer in the world of poker. There’s so much to play for at GGPoker this May: oodles of big prizes, 18 WSOP Circuit gold rings and a whole lot of tournament glory.”
There are 18 Super Circuit WSOP Ring events on the schedule, with buy-ins ranging from $50 to $25,000. The first ring event is the $1,111 Covid Charity Event, which will raise money for COVID-19. In this event, each player’s $111 buy-in will be donated to the Nevada COVID-19 Task Force.
The biggest guaranteed event of the series is the High Roller Championship offering $10 million at a massive $25,000 buy-in. The 17th ring event of the series is the $1,000-entry Main Event, which takes place between May 10 -31. That event offers a $5 million guarantee and has multiple starting days.
That is not all, there are two invitations up for grabs to $1,000,000 freeroll WSOP Global Casino Championship, one to the Main Event winner and one to the overall Ring Event Leaderboard winner.
