GG Online Championship with $150M GTD: May 5-31
The GG Online Championship poker tournament series kicked off this weekend over at GGPoker with an outrageous total prize guarantee of $150 million. The new series runs from May 5 to May 31, parallel to the SCOOP on PokerStars. The GG Online Championship includes more than 100 individual events and more than 40 of those events have guaranteed seven-figure prize pools ($1,000,000 or more).
As with SCOOP, the events on GGPoker come in different buy-in tiers. There are four of these levels: low, medium, high and super high. Buy-ins range from $5 to $25,500 and, of course, there are satellites throughout that can be used to qualify for the tournaments for less money.

Daniel Negreanu, GGPoker Brand Ambassador stated: "It's great to introduce a brand new tournament series for all GGPoker players to enjoy and the GG Online Championship is the biggest and best series ever. We're doubling the guarantees that exist elsewhere! "
Negreanu is alluding to PokerStars, where the 2022 SCOOP guarantees around $75 million. Many players will likely be playing on both sites at the same time, but GGPoker has now clearly outdistanced its competitor PokerStars, at least in terms of guarantees.
