GGPoker has announced yet another online tournament series in what is an already jam-packed November with some big tournament series lined up across global online poker markets.
Starting this Sunday, November 8, the operator’s successful high-stakes series, High Rollers Week, is making a comeback for the third time and for a second this year with a double-size guarantee of $22 million.
The schedule is quite simple and straightforward, with a total of 20 events spanning eight days. This puts the average guarantee per tournament at an astonishing $1 million.
As the name suggests, buy-ins are understandably on the higher side starting at $525 and peaking at $25,000, though a majority of them range between $1050 and $10,300.
Along with the standard affair of No Limit Hold’em tournaments, there are also a couple of Pot Limit Omaha events and a Short Deck event. Formats range from progressive knockouts to Deepstacks.
For instance, the GGMasters High Rollers edition which usually guarantees $1 million for a buy-in of $1050 will guarantee half a million more. The Super MILLION$ costing $10,300 to enter guarantees $3 million. Both the events take place on the opening day.
On Monday, a $*10,300 PLO High Roller promises a $1 million guarantee* followed by the NLHE High Roller with the same buy-in on the following day guaranteeing $1.25 million.
On November 12, the NLHE Super High Roller takes place guaranteeing $2.5 million costing an audacious $25,000 and a $10,300 buy-in Short Deck event runs on November 14.
But the biggest attraction of the series is the Super MILLION$ Main Event, guaranteeing a massive $5 million. It comes for a buy-in of $10,300. The final table of this event will be broadcasted cards up on GGPoker’s Twitch channel on November 17.
In total, there are seven tournaments with a minimum of $1 million guaranteed.
The High Rollers Week will be the network’s third high stakes series in two years. Compared with the previous two editions that ran in March this year and November last year, the total guarantees are more than double despite the number of total events cut by nearly five times.
The series runs alongside the already running Battle of Malta running on GGPoker after the network formed a partnership with the live tour’s organizers to move their tour online. The Battle of Malta online series kicked off on November 1 and runs through November 22 with total guarantees of $30 million.
The series fully overlaps with PokerStars' European Poker Tour (EPT), taking place online for the first time as a replacement for live stops canceled due to COVID. It kicks off on November 8 and runs through November 18 with total guarantees of $20 million.
