About GGPoker

GGPoker is an online poker room founded in April 2017 and based on the Isle of Man. The online poker room initially focussed heavily on the Asian market and was successful in building a significant player base. Starting 2019 GGPoker experienced a major upswing when Daniel Negreanu was signed up as a brand ambassador. In 2020, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Fedor Holz and Jason Koon followed as well-known GGPoker Pros. Meanwhile the number of players on the site increased significantly.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 saw the first staging of the World Series of Poker Online, with 54 bracelets being played on GGPoker. During this tournament series, the poker room set a new world record for the largest online poker tournament at the Main Event with a prize pool of over $27.5 million, which it still holds to this day.

Fun Facts About GGPoker
Ever wondered what the GG stands for in “GGpoker”? The “Double G’s” has nothing to do with Snoop Dogg, unless you meet him in the world of eSports, where the abbreviation is known as “Good Game”. The term, however, does not always carry this almost obvious meaning but totally the opposite. If you get beaten badly (“pwned hard”) in an online game, term “GG” is also used as a taunt or slander for not giving the opponent hard time enough, or maybe it was just enough to make them sweat. Well, with GGpoker it is always a good game and proof of that is the world’s largest player network where millions of players gather every day to enjoy poker. What do you think, if GGpoker introduced in-game chat for their poker tables, would the table manners turn ugly like in eSports?
