Poker For Everyone: Play in Your Preferred Bracket

The concept of buyin brackets for online poker tournament series is not a new one, and GGPoker Ontario will be using it for GG Ontario Festival, separating all the events into three buyin brackets.

The low bracket will feature events between $2.50 and $25, with events like $5 Ontario Mini MILLION$ featured in this bracket and offering guarantees as high as $20k.

The medium bracket will offer events between $25 and $150, with numerous major events in this one, including the $50 Ontario MILLION$ Mini Main, which will feature a $100k guarantee.

Finally, the high buyin bracket will include 215 events with buyins over $150, including the $1,500 GG Ontario Championship that comes with a $200k guarantee and all the prestige and glory of winning the title in an event like this.

GGPoker has prepared something for every poker player in Ontario and will be offering plenty of action throughout the Festival’s duration at each buyin level, allowing you to choose for yourself how high you want to play and which level you are most comfortable competing at.

Massive GG Ontario Festival Highlight Events

In total, the GG Ontario Festival is going to feature 645 separate events, as each of the 215 tournaments will be offered in three versions with three different buyins and guaranteed prize pools.

While the guarantees for many of the smaller events across the Festival will be somewhat limited, a number of major events with massive guarantees will also be offered.

Three of the events will feature a $200,000 guarantee, including the $525 Mega Mystery MILLION$, the $1,500 GG Ontario Championship, and the $210 Ontario MILLION$ Closer, all of which will feature multiple day one flights and final days played towards the end of the series.

In the meantime, there will be plenty of other single-day and multi-day events with significant guaranteed prizes, with some of the following standing out from the rest:

Unique Leaderboards for Each Buyin Bracket

On top of the $5,000,000 in guaranteed prizes that will be distributed over the 645 events of the GG Ontario Festival, the operator will also give away $75,000 in special leaderboard prizes that won’t be coming out of your buyins.

Instead, the leaderboard prizes will be paid to the best performing players in each buyin bracket directly by the operator, adding extra value to the Festival for all the real tournament grinders out there.

If you plan to play a lot of events at the GG Ontario Festival this year, you may be in with a real shot at winning one of the many leaderboard prizes, especially if you stick to one chosen buyin bracket.

The prize distribution of the $75 will be as follows:

  • Low Bracket Leaderboard: $25,000
  • Medium Bracket Leaderboard: $25,000
  • High Bracket Leaderboard: $25,000

In the simplest of terms, players in each buyin bracket of the GG Ontario Festival will have a chance to battle it out for the same amount in extra value added by GGPoker Ontario, making it a great opportunity especially for the players grinding tournaments on the lower end of the buyin spectrum.
