Dan Bilzerian's Battle Royale Becomes Latest GGPoker Poker Format

Dan Bilzerian's Battle Royale on GGPoker

GGPoker has created a brand new poker tournament format, one that combines poker with a battle royale, the ever-popular video game genre. Who better to front this new action-packed format than the gun-toting Dan Bilzerian.

Dan Bilzerian's Battle Royale launches today, June 10, and is available across three affordable buy-in levels: $0.25, $1, $3, and $10. Each No-Limit Hold'em Progressive Bounty Sit & Go tournament begins when 100 players have bought in, and each features three distinct levels.

How Does Dan Bilzerian's Battle Royale Work?

The new tournament format is action-packed throughout and is divided up into three levels.

The Rush Zone

Level 1 is known as the Rush Zone and is one of the most exciting sections of each Battle Royale. The action is non-stop thanks to this section being played as a Rush Tournament where players move to a new table with fresh hole cards after every hand.

Rush Zone ends when only 50 players remain or the 15-minute time limit is up, the latter being strikingly similar to the circle closing in on player in video games' Battle Royales such as Warzone and Apex Legends. The top 50 players, based on chip stacks, kills, and most hands played, progress to the second level.

The Shootout Zone

Survive the madness of the Rush Zone and you reach Level 2: the Shootout Zone. Here, the 50 players who survived the first stage lock horns on ten five-handed tables until only one player remains on each table.

Again, there is a time limit in play to reduce each table to a solitary player. If 15-minutes passes and tables have two or more players seated at them, the Battle Royale tournament changes to a Flipout format where everyone is automatically set all-in until only one survivor remains on each table!

It pays to try and win your table as fast as possible because those who go through from the second stage faster are given seat selection advantages at the final table!

The Final Table

Level 3 is the Final Table section where the game reverts to a standard tournament. All ten players lock up a slice of the prize pool, but only one person can call themselves the Battle Royale champion! There is no time limit imposed during the Final Table section, but PokerNews expects the action to be fast and furious regardless!

Dan Bilzerian's Battle Royale Final Table Payouts

The payouts at the final table are the same for all buy-ins, with the champion taking home 21.13% of the main prize pool. Do not forget that these tournaments involve a progressive bounty, so you win even more money for eliminating opponents on your way to glory.


5% of the buy-in goes to the rake.
$0.25 of the buy-in is subject to 4% of the rake.

$15,000 Battle Royale Leaderboard

To make matters even more exciting, GGPoker has created a weekly Battle Royale leaderboard with $15,000 worth of prizes up for grabs. The leaderboards run from June 10-30 and the more games you play, the more points you earn. Hundreds of Battle Royale players will pad their bankrolls with a leaderboard prize each week, giving you more reasons to try this new, revolutionary format.

Furthermore, points are earned at 1.5x their normal rate between 10:00 p.m. and midnight UTC every day during GGPoker's Happy Hour!
