GGPoker Goes For The Knockout With $40M Bounty Hunter Series

GGPoker's $40M guaranteed Bounty Hunter Series kicks off on October 11th.

GGPoker is ready to take another shot. On the heels of their successful GG Series of Poker, the online site has announced their next major, massive online poker series that takes aim at players who enjoy going for the knockout.

GGPoker’s Bounty Hunter Series will take place from October 11-25 and guarantee $40 million in total prize money. For two weeks, the GGPoker schedule is absolutely packed with non-stop bounty tournament action with 353 official events and more than 500 total tournaments with side events included.

No matter what stakes a player enjoys, there’s a tournament in the schedule with a buy-in (and time) to fit their schedule. The Bounty Hunter Series averages more than 20 tournaments a day with buy-ins that range from at little as $5.25 all the way up to the $10,300 Super MILLION$ Bounty Hunters with $1,000,000 guaranteed, the biggest bounty tournament ever run on the site.

Featured Events

The schedule is so extensive, it may be hard to figure out a plan of attack on finding the best value. For those who are building a bankroll and enjoy playing at the lower and mid-stakes, one of the events to target is the GGMasters Daily $25, a freezeout tournament that runs at the same time every single day of the series and comes with a $50,000 guarantee.

Mid-stakes shot takers have a buffet of $100-$300 tournaments to choose from. One to keep an eye on is the Main Event Special Edition. The tournament, which runs multiple times, comes with a $210 buy-in and a $500,000 guarantee. Additionally, GGPoker’s tentpole tournament, the GGMasters, will run with a $157.50 buy-in and also has a $500,000 guarantee.

Of course, GGPoker has not left out the high-rollers. In addition to the Super MILLION$, which runs three times, there is an abundance of tournaments with a buy-in greater than $1,000. The $3,150 Sunday Bounty King High Roller runs multiple times and features a $300,000 guarantee, one of the biggest guarantees of the series.

Another feature of the series comes in the form of speed of play. For those that just don’t have the time to grind out a standard tournament, the Bounty Hunter Series features “Speed Racer” tournaments at multiple buy-in levels. These hyper-turbo tournaments start players with just 10 big blinds and provide the same knockout action in a fraction of the time.

$100K Leaderboard

While it may be daunting to think about grinding an entire schedule that has hundreds of events, those that do it and do so successfully will be rewarded with a piece of $100,000 in additional prizes.

GGPoker has brought back their $100,000 Leaderboard for the Bounty Hunter Series which will split the six-figure sum between the top 100 performing players. Those looking to battle in the leaderboard best not take their time getting in on the action though as points begin to be earned on day one, October 11, where there are 29 events scheduled.
