Tournament series on GGNetwork and another 20 million from Partypoker
May can without a shadow of a doubt be called the richest in events and series for tournament poker players. Traditional and at the same time record SCOOP-2019 at Pokerstars, completely dedicated to the progressive knockout KO Series from Partypoker; the slightly less impressive XL Inferno series hosted by 888Poker. Now GGNetwork is joining them with their Good Game Series 2.
In addition, Partypoker has finally dispelled all worrisome rumors and loudly announced the holding of his tournament Leviathan, called MILLIONS Online.
Good game series 2
The poker room PokerOK, which represents the GGNetwork, has announced the continuation of the recently thundered Good Game Series. The name of the new series of tournaments does not surprise with its originality, but we value large tournaments not at all for their cool and non-trivial names (otherwise 888Poker with its hellish inclinations would have plugged other rooms in the belt a long time ago). The main criterion for the attractiveness of any major poker tournament series is the size of the guaranteed prize pool. Here he did not disappoint and makes a decent $ 10,000,000. Fewer industry leaders, but more of the same eights.
It should be noted separately that the dates of the event coincide in the most unpredictable way with SCOOP and KO Series: the start is on May 12, and the end is scheduled for May 26. What can persuade players in favor of a less money series, all other things being equal? A weaker field, especially at a time when events are in the spotlight on Pokerstars and Partypoker. An affordable buy-in for a decent number of tournaments for mid-stakes players. Striving to stand out from the poker crowd and be different, at worst. It is also rare to find a poker tournament online with a $ 25,000 buy-in and a $ 750,000 guarantee. Who knows, maybe with such initial data it will be a Sit-n-go tournament, and not a long MTT marathon.
Still, 20 millions!
Partypoker has made poker fans jittery by removing information about its flagship tournament, MILLIONS Online, from its official website. The most ardent enemies of the poker room have already started rubbing their chests and clapping their hands happily. But after waiting for the grandmaster's pause, the party poker nevertheless announced its signature event in December. So far, the 1st day of the last month of 2019 has been set as the start date, but changes in the schedule have become a common thing for the Party. The size of the guaranteed prize fund was also announced: it will be the same $ 20,000,000. True, the buy-in was raised from $ 5,200 to $ 10,300, which somewhat upset many people who could freely afford to play the $ 5,000 tournament, but 10 thousand dollars for them is already Erebor.
For players planning to win on all fronts of absolutely all tournament series and inscribing their name in golden letters on the tablets of poker champions, we recommend getting a skillful assistant to every tournament grinder - a Sharkscope subscription. Sharkscope is the largest and most complete database of tournament results and players participating in them. It is always useful to know who is opposing you at the table: the owner of the Sharkscope diamond star or the minus fish driving the turik in an alcoholic intoxication.
The desire to keep up everywhere is commendable, but playing several expensive online tournaments at the same time in different rooms is still a hassle. In order not to waste time, wasting precious seconds trying to manually switch between not always the most convenient room software, it would be nice to automate all possible processes as much as possible (bet sizes and table placement, hotkeys). For this, the poker program Table Ninja 2 was developed. It will save you from the roughness of interaction between different poker rooms and will allow you to focus on the main thing - your fight for the well-deserved prize money in the largest poker tournaments.
