Canada is hosting the GG Masters event. Someone is going to become rich. The winner gets a $400,000 bounty.
GG Poker, the brainchild of Daniel Negreanu, promises an exciting tournament. Low-buys-ins ($150) make and multiple chances for the big win are pulling players in.
It is no surprise that the online poker scene is more than making up for any shortfall in poker events due to the coronavirus pandemic killing live playing. This one could well go viral.
The GG Masters event is a “regular, no-non sense freezeout.” You buy in, play, lose and are out. Besides the big bonanza is a sponsorship package worth up to half a million dollars.
Of note, GG Poker will donate 0.5% of the High Roller Week’s prize pools to charity.
On the table in a variety of High Roller venues is as much as $9 million over the next week. As many as 96 events are scheduled with various buy-ins and guarantees.
Everyone will be online to witness the tournaments and profit taking. Among the sponsored players are Negreanu, All-Time Money List leader, Bryn Kenney, and Brazilian poker powerhouse, Felipe Ramos, wearing the GG patch.
