TigerGaming Hosting the GOPS With $500,000 in Guarantees March 11-18
Tournament action is about to get hotter than ever before at TigerGaming. For the first time, TigerGaming is hosting an online poker festival dubbed the Global Online Poker Series (GOPS) featuring 18 action-packed tournaments with more than $500,000 in guaranteed prizes from March 11-18.
The highlight of the inaugural poker festival is the GOPS $200,000 Guaranteed Main Event on March 18 at 7 p.m. ET.
While many players will be ponying up the $250 entry fee for a chance at a huge payday, you can potentially get in for a fraction of the cost or even for free via satellite and feeder tournaments.
Satellite into the Main Event
The free path involves playing in freeroll tournaments at 7 p.m. on Fridays. This tournament will pay out 20 seats to a Step 1 sit and go tournament valued at $3.
From there you need to climb up the ladder. If you win the six-max Step 1 tournament you will earn a $15 ticket to a five-max Step 2 sit and go tournament. Win that tournament and you will earn a Step 3 sit and go ticket valued at $60. From there the stakes get big and if you win this step, you will be awarded a ticket to the GOPS Main Event.
While this is the only chance to get into the Main Event for free, it isn't the only path. You can also play in $22 rebuy satellites running every two hours every day from 2 p.m. ET to 10 p.m. ET. Additionally, you can play in $33 reentry satellites at 8 p.m. daily to win a seat.
There will also be $25 rake-free satellites running from March 12-16 every 15 minutes from 6:45 p.m. ET until 9 p.m. ET.
If you prefer a luck-based chance for a Main Event ticket, TigerGaming is hosting $25 10-max sit and go tournaments and $50 five-max sit and go tournaments where players are all-in every hand until a winner is declared.
