One of the most popular forms of online poker today is guaranteed tournaments. With this tournament option, players can log on and compete, knowing that a set amount of cash is up for grabs for those who case out. If a guaranteed prize pool is not met, the online poker room will make up the difference. It is this factor that keeps players participating in guaranteed events. For GGPoker, the Sunday GGMasters has been a big hit due to their guaranteed prize pool. In fact, so many players have taken part each week that the brand has decided to up the ante once again and offer $500k in guaranteed prize money for this event.
Each week, the GGMasters has been continually growing. After just one showing offering $400,000 in guaranteed prize money, the number of players caused the poker brand to increase the prize money by yet another $100,000.
Players will now find the Sunday event will offer $500,000 in guaranteed prize money running each week at 1pm Eastern time. The buy-in is just $150, so the value is there. The event takes place in freezeout format with no rebuys or re-entries.
Take Part in Satellites
Like all other online poker rooms, GGPoker is also offering satellites for the GGMasters. Players can take part in step tournaments to win their way into the event. The first satellite has a small buy-in of $1.50, with options to pay more to start at the higher step levels. The satellite tournaments run all week which makes it easy for players to find time to give a shot at earning a seat to the GGMasters.
If you do win a seat, you are automatically registered for the next running of the event. Your seat is secured and all you have to do is show up in time to compete.
GGPoker is a relatively new online poker room and they are gaining ground when it comes to keeping up with competitors. They continue to offer quality gaming options and are showing no sign of slowing down.
On Sundays, players have access to over $2 million in guaranteed prize money, with a wide variety of gaming options on offer. The Sunday schedule includes game types like Omaha, Short Deck and more. Players will find plenty of structures too including bounty events, turbos and deepstacks.
The popularity of GGPoker can easily be seen with the GGMasters event. Having debuted in early January, the event started out with $250,000 in guaranteed prize money. Here we are just three months later and the prize pool has doubled. Players are finding out that the online poker provider offers quality gaming options and they are taking advantage of the Sunday schedule, mainly the GGMasters event.
We will watch and see if the tournament is able to meet the higher guarantee and if perhaps the poker provider pushes the guarantee up yet again due to a solid turnout.
