BLADE: GG Network series for high-rollers
The Eurasian network GG announced BLADE this year: a tournament series focused on high-rollers having largest buy-ins and big prize pools. The minimum buy-in we have spotted in a BLADE tournament is $250 and the highest one $10,000; almost all events are over $1,000 buy-in. Let's remind that GG doesn't allow any support software, however, playing BLADE is the closest thing to living a high-roller experience in a real casino.
Since January 2019, GG Network has hosted 23 weekly events with buy-ins up to $10,000, and GTD prizes up to $200,000, becoming another success of the network in its expansion plan which includes Europe and Latin-America.
$11,5MUSD guaranteed from April 14th to April 21st
This month GG Network decided to raise the bar, hosting in just one week over 100 events with $11,5MUSD GTD. The buy-ins range from $200 up to $10,000 and the BLADE Series Main Event features a massive $500,000 GTD prize pool and a $500 buy-in.
The regular BLADE schedule (9 daily events and 14 tournaments on Sunday) will be played along with the high-roller series, raising the weekly GTD prize pool to over $14MUSD. The Big Ones or main events of the series have a buy-in range from $200 up to $2,500:
|The Big Ones|
|Blade Series[#001] $200||2019-04-14 11:00||$200||$200,000|
|Blade Series[#003] $500||2019-04-14 12:30||$500||$200,000|
|Blade Series[#005] $1K||2019-04-14 14:00||$1,000||$150,000|
|Blade Series[#029] $500||2019-04-16 12:30||$500||$150,000|
|Blade Series Main Event $500||2019-04-21 12:30||$500||$500,000|
|Blade Series[#096] $1K||2019-04-21 14:00||$1,000||$200,000|
|Blade Series[#097] $2.5K||2019-04-21 14:30||$2,500||$250,000|
In total 13 daily events from 00:00 (UTC-05:00) and then every hour or half hour from 11:00 up to 22:00 when the last event starts. Looking at the schedule, we can say that the BLADE series action will run 24/7 and players across different time zones can take part in many events.
The BLADE tournaments rake is about 3-6%, for example, the Main Event has a $470 + $30 buy-in (6,4%rake) and Blade series #011 features a $9,700 + $300 (3,1% rake).
GG Network is guaranteeing 800 tickets to BLADE Series tournaments. For example, one Main Event satellite guarantees three tickets with a $45,5 + $4,5 buy-in, and players can qualify for events with buy-ins from $200 up to $1k.
