$100m up for up grabs as WSOP Winter Online Circuit returns to GGPoker

By Gambling Insider

GGPoker has launched the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Winter Online Circuit, which will run from 12 December through 9 January. The tournament series will contain 18 headline ring events, with players standing to win a WSOP gold ring, as well as cash prizes.

Accompanying these are hundreds of side events and satellite tournaments, with $100m up for grabs across the entire schedule, with 13 of the ring events boasting tournament guarantees of $1m or more.

Kicking off the tournament is the BIG 50 MILLION$. This is scheduled to take place on the first day of the tournament series and requires a $50 buy-in, with $1m in guaranteed prize money.

From there, the cash prizes only get bigger, with the $400 COLOSSUS and $100 MILLION$ Mini Main Event on 19 December and 2 January respectively guaranteeing at least $2m each.

The Circuit will culminate in the Main Event, which will be showcased on GGPoker.TV on Saturday 15 January. After forking out the $525 buy-in fee, players will be in with a chance of winning up to $5m in guaranteed prize money.

GGPoker Global Ambassador Daniel Negreanu said: “WSOP circuit events are great; they give every player the chance to win a big prize and gold ring, while enjoying a taste of the WSOP experience.

“This time around, there’s also the not-insignificant matter of $100m in prizes to enjoy as well; it might be getting cold outside, but the action is just heating up at GGPoker!”

Players will receive leaderboard points each time they take part in a ring event or side event, with the top 100 players sharing $100,000 in prizes at the end of the series.
