18 Ring Events, $100M GTD in GGPoker Online Circuit
The schedule has been released for the upcoming World Series of Poker Online Super Circuit at GGPoker, and it features a record-breaking guarantee of $100 million across the entirety of the schedule.
That tops even the $85 million guaranteed in the recently released SCOOP series schedule.
“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,” said Head of GGPoker Jean-Christophe Antoine. “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.”
The 18 WSOPC gold rings will be awarded in numbered events that make up $28 million of the guaranteed prizes. The rest will come from daily guaranteed tournaments across a variety of buy-in levels. In total, there will be 595 tournaments on the schedule, which runs from May 3-31.
Two huge guarantees of $5 million and $10 million offer the biggest prizes.
The former belongs to the $1,000 Main Event, which has 78 starting flights starting May 9 and ending May 31 with regular, turbo and hyperturbo flights.
As for the $10 million, that will be reserved for the deepest-pocketed players, who will get their cracks at a $25,000 High Roller Championship. That's scheduled for May 17.
Also of note is a $1,111 Covid Charity $1,000,000 Guaranteed, the first ring event on the schedule. Each buy-in will see $111 donated to the Nevada COVID-19 Task Force, a private-public partnership overseeing the state's relief efforts.
Finally, the WSOP will be offering its usual two seats to the $1 million guaranteed Global Casino Championship, scheduled for August. Both the Main Event winner and the overall points leader for the Super Circuit will earn seats.
