What Tournaments Can You Play at GGPoker?
Table Of Contents
Tournament poker online is as good as it has ever been and that’s especially the case over at GGPoker. The flagship site on the GG Network has a bustling multi-table tournament schedule that puts most other online poker sites to shame.
GGPoker offers a massive range of buy-ins starting at a mere $0.20 and increasing up to $5,000. It runs even bigger buy-in tournaments during festivals and special events!
It’s all good and well offering a large number of different buy-ins, but poker sites also need to offer their players a choice of formats and variants. Of course, GGPoker does this. Here are some of the most popular MTTs on offer at GGPoker.
$500,000 Guaranteed GGMasters
The GGMasters shuffles up and deals every Sunday at 6:00 p.m. CET and it is a special tournament. It now features a massive $500,000 guaranteed prize pool for your $150 buy-in. GGPoker has this half-million guarantee despite being a freezeout. You don’t see many freezeout tournaments these days, especially not ones as big as this.
Win your seat in the GGMasters from as little as $1.50 if the $150 is out of your reach. Make sure you bring your A-game to the tables, however, because you earn Player of the Year points whenever you cash in the event.
Be one of the top 10 points earners in 2020 and you’ll bank a cool prize. Those finishing in second-place through 10th win entries to every GGMasters taking place in 2021. Finish on top, however, and you become a GG Ambassador with a package worth up to $500,000!
Daily Guaranteed and Sunday Guaranteed
There are dozens of tournaments coming under the Daily Guarantees banner. Main Events with buy-ins of $22, $33, $55, $88, $125, and $250 run Monday through Saturday and have guarantees ranging from $12,000 to $50,000.
They swell in size on Sunday where the buy-ins remain the same but the guarantees grow from $17,500 to $100,000.
You can also get involved in the Daily Hypers, which has hyper-turbo blind structures. You better hope you win your coin flips if you want to succeed in these events!
Then there are more than a dozen Daily Turbo tournaments, more than a dozen Daily Bigs, and even more Daily Deep Stacks.
GGPoker runs satellites for all their Daily Guarantees tournament. They run 90 and 30 minutes before the target event.
Ten High Rollers tournaments run throughout Monday to Saturday and another 20 of them take place each Sunday. GGPoker classifies its $250 to $5,000 buy-in tournaments as High Rollers.
They’re not for the faint-hearted because they attract a stellar crowd and put a strain on your bankroll, but you can win your way into them for a fraction of their cost. With guarantees starting at $10,000 and increasing to $250,000, the prizes are also huge.
All of the bounty hunter tournaments at GGPoker have a guaranteed prize pool. They’re played as a Progressive Knockout (PKO) meaning the value of your own bounty increases each time you eliminate an opponent, which then makes you a more attractive target for the rest of the players in the tournament.
For example, in a Bounty Hunter where everyone starts with a $10 bounty on their head, you bust an opponent. You win their $10 bounty. $5 of it goes into your GGPoker account, the other $5 goes on your head taking your bounty to $15.
Bounty Hunter buy-ins start at only $2.10 and increase to $105.
The Chinese Zodiac tournaments are a series of special tournaments that are bought into and paid out in the CNY currency. They run at times suitable for the Chinese market (1:00 p.m. CET) and cost ¥388 to enter (approx. $90) and have guarantees of ¥188,000 (approx. $43,500). The guarantees increase to ¥258,000 (approx. $59,700) on Sundays.
At least 16 Omaha tournaments run every day at GGPoker, so if you’re a fan of four hole cards these are the MTTs for you. You’ll find buy-ins from $1 to $22 with some of the Omaholic tournaments being Bounty Hunters for added excitement.
Omaha continues to grow in popularity so expect even more PLO tournaments hitting the schedule.
Rise like a phoenix from the flames with the aptly named Phoenix Rebuy tournaments. These exiting tournaments allow you to build your stack through rebuys if winning them in the traditional manner isn’t going to plan. You have the following options:
- Single Rebuy before late registration closes
- Double Rebuy of three-times the initial starting stack after late registration closes but before the rebuy period ends
- Double-buy Add-On of six-times the amount of the initial starting stack at the end of the rebuy period
Rake-Free T$ Builders
GGPoker runs T$ Builder tournaments every 30-minutes of every day. They have buy-ins of $1, $2, $4, and $8 and a a great way to build a bankroll, especially because they are rake-free and 100% of the buy-in goes into the prize pool.
Payouts are made in T$, or tournament dollars, which can then be used to enter any GGPoker tournament you wish.
