GGPoker´s Good Game Poker Series 2 will run from Sunday May 12th to Sunday May 26th and consist of 157 events guaranteed for a total of over $10 million.
GGPoker is the fastest-growing online poker site in the world; and, if you want an indication of how fast the site is growing, you don´t have to look any further than the prize money being guaranteed for its Good Game Poker Series 2. When the site ran its first Good Game Series last November, the 129 events were guaranteed for a total of $3.5 million. Next month´s series is guaranteed for more than $10 million.
Part of the increase is attributable to an extra 28 tournaments being added to the schedule – many of which are High Roller events with substantial prize pools. However, there are increased prize pool guarantees throughout the schedule for low buy-in events as well, implying that the site anticipates a great turnout for the whole series and not just the feature events.
Highlights of the Good Game Series Schedule
The schedule has many similarities to last November´s series. There are Daily Main events with prize pool guarantees ranging from $30,000 to $200,000, plus High Roller and Super High Roller tournaments with prize pool guarantees up to $750,000. There is also a good range of low buy-in tournaments (between $10 and $50) offering respectable prize money.
However, the pick of the series is the $500,000 Championship Event that will have five opening Day 1s starting on Sunday May 19th and culminate with a Day 2 on Sunday May 26th. This $200 buy-in event will be supported by a comprehensive satellite schedule due to get underway during the first week in May, and the site will be hosting several promotions to help players win seats for free.
What will please many players is that the series comprises of purely NL Texas Hold´em tournaments. Other than a handful of knockout tournaments, the series is free from “novelty events”, giving players who want to test their skills without distractions an opportunity to do so. Unfortunately, some of the tournaments still have long late registration periods, but that´s just the way things are these days.
One final point to note about the Good Game Poker Series 2 is that the tournaments are distributed throughout the day rather than being crushed together in the European evening. Typically, the schedule starts at 1:00pm (GMT) each day with two tournaments getting underway every two hours. The exception is the daily High Roller tournaments at 8:00pm (GMT) and the final day of the series, when the Championship Event and Super High Roller tournaments start at 6:00pm (GMT).
GGPoker Working Hard to Attract New Players
The Good Game Poker Series 2 is just one of a number of efforts being made by the site to attract new players. In addition to a generous first deposit bonus and a special “Honeymoon” promotion for new players, you can take advantage of daily, weekly, and monthly promotions to boost your bankroll or take advantage of the generous “Fish Buffet” rewards program to win cash prizes of up to $1,000.
Details of these promotion and rewards can be found in our GGPoker review, where you will also find important information about the terms and conditions of playing at the site – one of the main reasons why GGPoker is growing so quickly. GGPoker strongly enforces its Security and Ecology Agreement that protects players from unethical play, so you can be assured of a fair experience at the tables.
