Big festival for small bankrolls
For the second time in its history, GGNetwork decided to hold an autumn festival for low stakes players and, as often happens, boosted the guaranteed prize pools:
From October 23 to November 7, 2021, GGPoker will host the Good Game Series of Poker with $7,000,000 guaranteed.
Although the number of events remained the same at 54, the total prize pool increased by $500,000 compared to last year's GGSOP. The figure of seven million was most likely not chosen by chance — in 2020, the series raised $7,260,409.
To somehow prevent possible overlays, all big events will feature multiple flights. Also, the organizers made several changes to the schedule.
Full schedule of the Good Game Series of Poker 2021
The following five events stand out:
- $5 The Return: $100k GTD, is the first such tournament in the network's history. It must collect over 25 thousand entries. The final day will be held on October 23, and flights will start on the 16th.
- $25 Flip Ladies Championship: $100k GTD, is the first event for women to be held by Community Partners.
- $50 GGSOP MILLIONS: $1M GTD, the biggest festival tournament; features this time half of the guarantee, although the entry was slashed to the same.
- $15 MILLIONAIRE MAKER Jr: $250k GTD, last year it became the most massive event (22,871 entries); hence, this time, its guaranteed prize pool was boosted by $100,000.
- $50 GGSOP Main Event: $200k GTD. In 2020 the ME was unable to attract the right number of players and was held with a small overlay; therefore, this time, the guarantee was cut by $50k.
Considering the traffic growth on the network over the past year, it's expected the guaranteed prizes to be crushed one after the other. The full schedule of GGSOP 2021 can be seen here.
Satellites would provide even wider access to events of the series — buy-ins are available from a few cents.
$100,000 GGSOP Leaderboard
MTT grinders will also compete for a share of a leaderboard prize pool. One hundred players will score a prize, although the formula will change — there will be no multipliers for a particular position in the tournament:
Leaderboard point = log (Prize pool) / sqrt (Relative Rank).
Relative rank includes the player's final place ratio to the total number of entries in the tournament.
Hence, the prize pool is no longer so important when scoring points for the leaderboard, but the number of participants, which in general should offset the advantage of those players who can play more expensive events.
Most likely, the winner of The Return $100k GTD will catch a very high place on the leaderboard.
