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.
