While a most part of the planet is quarantined due to the coronavirus pandemic, in poker rooms begins a great battle for players. That’s why from March 22 to 29, GGPokerOK will host the High Rollers Week, where will be played $ 9,000,000.
The schedule offers series of 96 expensive tournaments with an initial cost of buy-ins of $ 210. The most expensive event will cost players $ 5,000. Tournaments will be held in the format of no-limit Hold’em, Omaha, and there will be several events in a short deck.
Two Phased HR Week events are the biggest tournaments for $ 250 and $ 1,000 – with a guarantee of $ 500,000 for each. GGPokerOK plans to give away more than a thousand tickets daily to various High Rollers Week tournaments.
The High Rollers Week series will be useful not only for high rollers, because all earned money during these series GGPokerOK will give as a charity to organizations that help to struggle against coronavirus in different countries. From the guarantee of each tournament, 0.5% is transferred to the University Health Network Foundation, which is looking for a vaccine from COVID-19. The minimum amount of assistance transferred will be $ 45,000, and the total amount will depend on how much the guarantees of the tournaments will be exceeded.
GG Masters raises warranty again
Lust Sunday was a big day for GGPokerOK because that day Sunday’s GG Masters tournament for the first time beat the claimed guarantee of $ 300,000. In consequence organizers have again increased, as usual, the prize fund to $ 400,000. An updated guarantee will be played already this Sunday, and for sure the tournament will be held again with an overlay.
Together with the increased prize pool, the number of satellites is also going to increase. If earlier there were only 10 of them per day, now there are 20 satellites in the schedule that will be played from 2 to 30 tickets to the key event.
