GGPoker is smashing records in the online poker arena once again with its upcoming GG Spring Festival. The online poker series, which runs from April 4-28, promises at least $150 million in total guaranteed prize money, the highest series guarantee in online poker history.
The festival includes more than 110 events each of which includes tiered buy-ins of Low, Medium, and High. Of the more than 300 tournaments, 39 of them will feature a prize pool guarantee of $1 million or more.
The whole festival kicks off on April 3 when GGPoker partners with Canadian electric music producer and DJ deadmau5 to host an opening night party that includes an exclusive music set streamed on GGPoker.TV and a $100,000 freeroll. The partnership with deadmau5 doesn’t end there as he will also be partaking in the action, along with many of the GGPoker ambassadors, in his own $10K GG Legends Bounty tournament taking place on April 10.
“This is going to be the biggest online poker event of all time and will blow a lot of people’s minds,” said GGPoker ambassador Daniel Negreanu. “From the deadmau5-hosted launch party and other festival elements to the massive headline event guarantees, it’s a true poker party from start to finish, and I can’t wait for it to get underway.”
A trio of headline events includes some of the biggest guarantees of the festival. The Main Event (High) is a $1,500 buy-in tournament with a $10 million guarantee. The high-roller Super MILLION$ Main Event (High) is a $10,300 buy-in event with another $10 million guaranteed. The third GG Spring Festival headliner is a $400 buy-in, guaranteeing $2.5 million.
Leading up to the biggest events of the series, a number of spotlight tournaments are sure to draw large fields. In Week One, dubbed the “Opening Stage”, both the Opening Act-L $80 NLHE with a $1 million guarantee and the Opening Act-L $80 PLO with $500,000 guaranteed will have mid-stakes players ready to boost their bankrolls.
In Week Two (aka Headliner Stage), in addition to two of the largest guaranteed tournaments, there’s also a $400 PLO-NL event with another $1 million on the line.
Finally, in Week Three – dubbed the Main Stage – joining the $1,500 Main Event, is a $1,500 PLO-NL Main Event that carries a $2 million guarantee.
The series will feature plenty of Super High Roller action as well. The schedule includes 10 different $25,500 buy-in events, which, in total, accounts for $34 million of the total guarantees.
Players on the other end of the spectrum are well-catered to as well with more than 100 events carrying a buy-in of less than $100. There are plenty of six-figure guarantees to go along with them including the $25 Mini Main Event, the $25 GGMasters, and the $30 Sunday Marathon all of which will have at least $100K in the prize pool.
GGPoker is incentivizing players to participate with more than just aggressive tournament guarantees. They are putting up $1 million in total leaderboard prizes which can be won over the course of the entire series.
In Weeks 1 and 2, $300,000 will be handed out to players over the three different tiers of Low, Medium, and High. Then, as the festival heads into the home stretch, Week 3 leaders will divvy up $400,000 in prizes.
Of course, GGPoker has plans to showcase some of the biggest events on their broadcast channels with the final tables with all three of the prize-pool-boosted Super MILLION$ taking center stage on GGPoker.TV
