Who Will Reach the Final Table in the 2020 GGPoker WSOP Winter Online Circuit $1,700 Main Event?

WSOP Winter Online Circuit
WSOP Winter Online Circuit

At the time of writing, the very ambitious eight-figure guarantee of $10 million in the 2020 GGPoker World Series of Poker Winter Online Circuit $1,700 Main Event was surpassed thanks to more than 6,300 total entries. The final two turbo heats with levels of five and four minutes each were yet to conclude their 20 levels and more than 900 players had locked up a seat for the final day.

All those who have chips at their disposal will return to their seats at 6.30 p.m. UTC when the top 10% of the overall field will take home a portion of the huge prize pool. At least six players had been able to turn their 50,000 starting stack into more than 1 million in chips with the Isle of Man's Sjors "Bofral" Tromp leading the pack on 1,325,700. Behind him were Robert Le Roux (1,218,727), the Canadian players "snoozeuloose" (1,206,009) and "topboi" (1,119,155), "Benjicarlos" (1,064,925) and Daniel "GiveUp1905" Saugspier (1,064,925).

Dozens of notables made it through in the hunt for a slice of the eight-figure prize pool including Fabiano "MarkyAurelio" Kovalski, Vlad Martynenko, Mario Mosboeck, Ronny Kaiser, Ami Barer, Hun Wei Lee, Dietrich Fast, Jorma Nuutinen and David Peters to name all but a few with more than half a million in chips at their disposal.

The action will recommence with blinds of 6,000-12,000 and a running ante of 1,500. Each level for today will last 15 minutes each and the goal for tonight is making it through to the nine-handed final table. At that point, the day will conclude and all remaining contenders then return the following Saturday for the live-streamed showdown on the Twitch channel.

Stay tuned to find out who makes the cut, brings home a profit for their investors, and has a shot at the coveted WSOP Circuit ring. The PokerNews live reporting team will aim to provide as many hands as possible en route to crowning a champion.
