Ongame's GSOP Rebrands as The GRAND Live

Ongame’s live tournament series, The Grand Series of Poker, is to be rebranded as simply The GRAND Live, network owner Amaya announced Wednesday.

The fourth and final stop in the GSOP begins today in Marbella, Spain, with a €1.1k-buyin NL hold’em tournament that runs until April 20.

The new GRAND Live brand will debut at the start of Season 4 later this year, although plans are are still in development and details have yet to be announced.

Season 3 kicked off in Malta in September 2012, followed by Prague in December and Vienna in February. Locations from previous tours include Riga, Seville, Manchester, Greece, Salzburg and the Dominican Republic.

The tournament series is mostly geared towards Ongame’s online players, with satellites and promotions running across skins on the network.

“[The series] offers players a truly premium experience including first class hotel and casino for an affordable buy-in,” Fredrik Lindberg of Betsson, one of the most recognizable brands on Ongame, is quoted as saying. “The GRAND live is especially well-suited for the large group of recreational players within Betsson.”
