Tournament Spotlight

Those who are looking to play the WSOP Online Main Event on GGPoker are quickly running out of time to make the tournament's Day 2. Following the completion of Tuesday's Day 1e, just three starting flights remain which play out over today, Saturday and Sunday.

The tournament has a $5,000 buy-in and comes with a huge $20 million guarantee. However players can qualify from as little as $5 or get in on the cheap with GGPoker's new and exciting Express Satellites.

How to Enter $20M GTD WSOP Online Main Event

Head over to the GGPoker Client and click the WSOP tab to easily find the WSOP Online Main Event Day 1 flights.

Whether you pay the $5,000 buy-in or satellite your way into the Main Event, each player receives a 60,000 starting stack, which is good for 300 big blinds. Entrants must then navigate fifteen 30-minute levels to make it through to Day 2. Re-entry is not permitted, however players may enter as many Day 1 flights as they like but only their largest stack will be carried forward to Day 2.

Day 2 will wrap up when the nine-handed final table is determined. Day 3 of the Main Event will also be broadcasted, with cards up coverage available at GGPoker.TV.

On Tuesday, Day 1e of the Main Event wrapped up which saw another 356 players take to the virtual felt. After nearly nine hours of play, just 53 of those entries managed to advance to the second stage. As it stands, 2,885 entries have already taken their shot at WSOP glory with only 437 players making over the first hurdle. There is the possibility that the tournament may have an overlay, as currently $13,703,750 of $20 million guarantee has been collected.

More of poker's elite were unable to pilot over a stack from Day 1e and that group of players included the likes of Chris Hunichen, Wiktor Malinowski, Andras Nemeth and Artur Martirosian.

However, online crushers such as Linus Loeliger (501,413), Ioannis Konstas (251,882) and Sergi Reixach (576,582) were able to bag and tag a stack for Day 2.

India's Pulkit Goyal (1,165,881) finished on top of the Day 1e chip counts, with "Leopard Z" (1,117,543) and "xADA" (1,003,060) being the only other players to finish with a seven-figure stack.

Boris Angelov (873,235), Christian Rudolph (816,154), Danilo "Senhor" Demetrio (601,723) and 2019 EPT Barcelona €1,100 National winner Markku Koplimaa (597,012) all finished inside the top ten chip counts.
