GGPoker Announces GGSOP; Play WSOP Classics Without Breaking the Bank!

GG Series Of Poker

The 2020 WSOP Online has only just concluded but GGPoker has wasted no time in announcing its latest foray into the online poker tournament festival world.

GGSOP, or Good Game Series Of Poker to give the series its full title, heads to GGPoker from September 12 and continues through to September 27. Some 54 events are scheduled, just like the 2020 WSOP Online, and these have combined guaranteed prize pools of $6.5 million despite buy-ins ranging from only $2.50 up to a still affordable $50.

Management at GGPoker devised the schedule to recreate the recently finished WSOP. The series is being billed as “the full WSOP experience for all low stakes players” and a festival that gives GGPoker’s customers to chance to “play all your favourite WSOP classics without breaking the bank.”

Strangely, the GGSOP’s biggest events are scheduled for Saturday instead of Sunday, the latter traditionally being the busiest day of the week for online poker sites. It’s an interesting move from the site and one that other operators may replicate if the GGSOP is successful.

Standout GGSOP Events

A handful of GGSOP events stand out from the crowd, including the GGSOP #2: $25 GGMaster [GGSOP Opener]. This event features a $100,000 guaranteed prize pool for a $25 buy-in.

There’s also a $15 MILLIONAIRE Maker Jr with a $150,000 guarantee. You won’t win anywhere near the gargantuan $1,489,289 Daniel Dvoress scooped for his victory in the $1,500 MILLIONAIRE MAKER but the prizes will still be substantial.

Micro stakes players also have the chance for a hefty prize in the series’ 50th event. The BIG 5 boasts of a $100,000 guaranteed prize pool despite the buy-in set at only $5!

The crown jewel of the GGSOP schedule is the No Limit Hold’em Main Event. A $50 buy-in buys you a shot at a prize pool guaranteed to be at least $250,000.
