The GGSOP, GGPoker’s affordable online tournament poker series, is coming to a conclusion this weekend with the $50 GGSOP Main Event with $200,000 in guaranteed prizes acting as the Series’ finale.
The Series launched mid-October and promised online tournament grinders a chance to enjoy WSOP-like events in structure and scope, but with significantly lower and more affordable buyins.
With all buyins in the $2.50 to $50 range, and a selection of satellites on offer across the board, there was hardly a player at GGPoker who could not give at least one of the events a real shot.

The biggest events of the GGSOP were the GGSOP Million$, which featured numerous Day 1 flights, three separate $1,000,000 prize pools, and lots of exciting action scheduled to conclude this Sunday.
However, the looming Main Event is the one that everyone has been waiting for, as its structure and similarity to the WSOP Main Event make it a coveted event for low and high rollers alike.
What to Expect from the GGSOP Main Event?
The GGSOP has been going for three weeks now, and is ready to conclude this weekend with a series of exciting events, including the $50 GGSOP Main Event on Saturday.
Kicking off at 6 p.m. CET, the Main Event features a $200,000 guaranteed prize pool, 60,000 starting chips, unlimited re-entries for the first 16 levels, and 10 minute blind levels allowing for plenty of play for many hours, with the tournament starting at 100/200 blinds with a 25 chip ante.
The guarantee will need a total of 4,000 players to be met, and judging by the success that the Series has been thus far, it can be fully expected that the prize pool will be shattered, with more than $200,000 paid out to the winners.
What Else is on the Schedule?
While the GGSOP Main Event may carry the most prestige this weekend, several other GGSOP events are still on the calendar before the Series is finally concluded.
None will be more interesting to watch than the Final Day of the GGSOP Million$, which will bring together players from dozens of separate Day 1 flights to fight it out for the $1,000,000 prize pool.
Along with that one, GGPoker players will also get a chance to compete in the highest buyin tournament of the series, the $150 GGMasters (GGSOP Edition), which comes with a $500,000 guaranteed prize pool and kicks off on Sunday.
Other interesting tournaments include the ¥88 Crazy Eights Event with a ¥500,000 prize pool, the ¥388 No Limit Hold’em Asia Championship with another $500,000 up for grabs, and the $25 GGMasters Bounty Warmup with its $100,000 prize pool.
With some of the biggest events of the GGSOP coming this weekend, there is still time to salvage the Series for those who have had little success thus far. The series will close out on Sunday evening with one final event, the $5 The Closer, a hyper turbo tournament with a $10,000 prize pool and your last chance at a big score for this edition of the GGSOP.
