Combine Poker and Sport With GGPoker’s New Bet & Go Tournaments
The vast majority of poker players tend to also be sports fans, a poker truism that the constantly tuned in GGPoker was well aware of when coming up with their sports-oriented Bet & Go tournaments, which has just been launched to coincide with the football extravaganza that’s kicking off in Qatar.
Bet & Go: How It Works
The concept addresses the passion so many have for both poker and sports by combining action at Real Money Online Poker tables with action at sporting events.
Each Bet & Go tournament is matched to an upcoming sporting event such as a football or tennis match. Two buy-in options are available, with each determined by the pre-match odds assigned to the respective teams or players. This means that by ‘supporting’ Brighton against football giants Barcelona, for example, you will have a bigger discount applied to your buy-in than all those who support the favourites.
A further Bet & Go twist comes when the sporting event ends, with the surviving players who registered in support of the eventual losing team being automatically knocked out of the poker tournament! However, they can then choose to rebuy at a non-discounted buy-in. This is a great mix of fan favourites and an entertaining take on online poker tournaments ...
Get Ready to Bet & Go!
To hit the ground running, the first Bet & Go tournament will take place on Sunday, 20 November at the same time as the Qatar vs Ecuador football match, and additional tournaments are scheduled to coincide with matches over the following weeks.
Daniel Negreanu, GGPoker Global Ambassador, had this to say about the latest addition to the world of Online Poker - “With Bet & Go tournaments, GGPoker players can support their favourite teams or simply take advantage of the biggest discounts and cheer for the underdogs... Watch your team win the event and you’ll be free to continue to play your way into the money; it could be win-win for you!”
