The World Series of Poker Winter Online Circuit returns to GGPoker this month highlighted by 18 Circuit ring events and at least $100,000,000 in total guaranteed prize money up for grabs across all events.
The series runs from December 12 through January 9 and encompasses hundreds of side events as well as the ring events, 13 of which come with a guarantee of $1 million or more.
“WSOP Circuit events are great, they give every player the chance to win a big prize and a gold ring while enjoying a taste of the WSOP experience,” said GGPoker Global Ambassador Daniel Negreanu. “This time around, there’s also the not-insignificant matter of $100,000,000 in prizes to enjoy as well. It might be getting cold outside but the action is just heating up at GGPoker!”
The series highlights include the BIG 50 MILLION$, a multi-flight $50 buy-in that comes with a $1 million guarantee. The $100 buy-in MILLION$ Mini Main Event with $2 million guaranteed. A special $3 million guaranteed $10,300 Super MILLION$ and a $1,050 GGMasters High Roller with $1.5 million guaranteed.
The series will conclude with the $525 Main Event with a massive $5 million guarantee. Day 1 flights for the Main Event begin on December 27 with plenty of additional opportunities for players to make Day 2, which takes place on January 9.
Satellites for most of the major events are running around the clock in the client and, for some events, start for as little as $0.50.
In total, the 18 ring events account for more than $26 million of the total series guarantee.
In addition to vying for a WSOP Circuit ring, there are plenty of other incentives on the line during the WSOP Winter Online Circuit. Every time a player participates in a ring event or side event (which makes up for the bulk of the schedule) leaderboard points are awarded. The top 100 players on the leaderboard will split $100,000 in added bonus prizes. Additionally, any player who wins a Circuit Event will automatically for the live WSOP Million Dollar Freeroll in Las Vegas (tie and date to be announced).
The WSOP Million Dollar Freeroll is a change of format for the WSOP that, in the past, had awarded seats to the year-end WSOP Tournament of Champions to the top 100 players on the WSOPC yearly leaderboard with two seats at each live stop being awarded to the Player of the Series and the winner of the Main Event of any given Circuit stop. But now, any WSOP Circuit win – including one of the international Online variety – earns a ticket to the year-end event.
Finally, for the fans, two of the 18 ring events will be a part of the GGPoker live stream schedule with Randy ‘Nanonoko’ Lew and Kevin ‘Rotterdam’ van der Kooi calling the action. Tune in on Tuesday, December 21 to catch the high rollers in action for the $3 million GTD Super MILLION$. Then, the final table of the $525 Main Event will play out on Saturday, January 15th.
