GGPoker hosts the first ever MTT Short Deck series
A few weeks ago we voted Good Game poker network (GGPokerOK, BetKings) as the best for 6+ Holdem. Holding the first ever Short Deck tournament series only confirms the deserved praise. Let's talk about the Short Deck Series today.
The main things about the tournament series
The series is held from 4 to 11 July, that is, you can take part right now. The tournament series has a prize pool of $ 1,000,000. Other information:
- Buy-ins range from $ 30 to $ 10,300;
- The largest guarantees in the "10,300 $ Super Highroller" - $ 200,000 and in the "525 $ Bounty Main Event" - $ 100,000.
- In some tournaments, a new MTT function from GGPoker called "N-Stack" will be available;
- The main event is split over several days.
What is N-Stack?
Success in the form of ahead of PokerStars in terms of the number of players could not but affect GGPoker: they also started experimenting. The new N-Stack tournament feature is one of them. What is its essence:
- In N-Stack tournaments, each player receives a certain number of chip stacks upon registration (this number is also known as “N”). Just before taking his place in the tournament, the player can decide how many of these stacks he will start with and how much to keep in reserve for later use.
- Each stack of chips can be viewed as a "bullet"; players can start a tournament with all available bullets in their starting stack. When a player first starts playing, at least one stack must be used.
- Reserved Stacks can be used at any time until the end of late registration or, alternatively, at a set time (the time at which Reserved Stacks can be used will be indicated in the tournament lobby). If by this moment the player has not used his reserved stacks, they will be automatically added to the player's active stack.
The Short Deck Series schedule at GGPoker includes 2-Stack, 3-Stack tournaments.
Some of them also contain an additional postscript with the number of blinds: 30 or 50. That is, you will have a choice - to start with a stack of 90BB (150BB), or try to double up quickly with a short stack. It is likely that MTT, where there is an indication of the number of stacks, but there is no mark about the blinds, your starting number of chips will be 100BB. A chance to play deep stacks of 200-300 big blinds?
