GGPoker events hold acquiring bigger

The site’s precedent for pushing boundaries began in 2020. With most of the world in lockdown mode due to COVID-19, action moved on the internet and GGPoker seized the chance to start off supplying guarantees in excess of $50 million.

PokerStars responded in type and, prior to long, it guaranteed $100 million for WCOOP 2021. That series went on to pay out $122 million which, despite the fact that impressive, wasn’t sufficient to surpass the $150 million GGPoker paid out in the course of the 2020 WSOP On-line Series.

Nevertheless, even with a precedent set and 4 acquire-in levels, GGPoker meeting its ambitious guarantee is not particular.

Regardless of whether or not or not GGPoker covers its lofty guarantee or not, the announced $150 million prize pool is currently a record-breaker.
