The World Series of Poker is the most prestigious and important set of poker tournaments worldwide. It is made up of hundreds of tournaments that are played among the different poker variants and with different buy-ins -some entries with prices ranging from $1,000 to $50,000-. Examples of these are no limit, fixed limit and pot limit tournaments or events, and Omaha, Texas Hold’em or Stud Poker, among others. In the WSOP, the $10,000 and above events are known as the World Championships, or World Championship. In addition, since 2008 the World Series has introduced the novelty of postponing the Main Event until November when there are only 9 players left in the championship. The aim of this is that the last active players can demonstrate their prowess around the world in No Limit Hold’em, as well as act as ambassadors of poker and even get sponsors.
GGPoker is one of the operators through which it is possible to participate in the WSOP. This year the tournaments are expected to start on May 31 and run until July 19, not counting the Main Event mentioned above, which will be held, as usual, in November. GGPoker offers participation in several of the WSOP events, these are the following:
It is important to make clear that the GGPoker network offers the possibility for its players to participate in satellite tournaments to access the most important WSOP events. The satellite tournaments offer a reduced entry fee to players in order to compete in a series of events that have as a reward the access to the higher buy-in tournaments, without having to pay for them. From GGPoker there is the possibility to reserve a seat for the satellite tournaments of the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, as well as for the World Series of Poker in Europe.
The Winter Online Circuit Series is the last poker tournament series to be held and the last of last year’s season. This one took place from December 12 through January 9, 2022. The GGPoker WSOP event offered a total of $100,000,000 guaranteed and to be split between hundreds of events, plus it featured 18 ring events, which attracted the most players. Rings, like bracelets, are one of the biggest prizes in the prestigious poker tournament series. The 2021 Winter Online Circuit Series (the second to be organized by GGPoker in conjunction with the World Series of Poker) featured an extensive network of satellite tournaments developed by GGPoker to allow the vast majority of players to participate, regardless of bankroll.
With respect to the first edition, the 2020 edition, GGPoker reduced the amount of the Super Million $ High Roller from $3,000,000 to the $2,000,000, so it became a side event. However, the total guarantee remained stable, even though the buy-in was reduced by half. Also, the series had only one Omaha tournament instead of two, but its Main Events were still available with reduced buy-ins and high guaranteed prize pools. The details for the new poker tournament series are still unknown, although important new features are expected. The same happens with the WSOP Online and the Super Circuit Online Series.
