GG Poker: Online WSOP Winter Circuit - $100,000,000 Guaranteed

GGPoker are relentless when it comes to tournament series. Their WSOP Circuit Winter Series is the biggest yet. That is no a typo in the heading, there really is one hundred million dollars in guaranteed prize pools up for grabs.

What GGPoker does well is the qualifiers. They make sure that 1000's of small stakes / amateur players get a shot at the big money. The sheer amount of satellites with 'overlays' (where the ticket value of prizes is way more than the sum of the buy-ins) is incredible.

Dates for your diary are December 12th to January 9th. 

Who knows, you might get the xmas gift of a WSOP Ring and a decent share of that $100 million prize!

America's Cardroom - Online Super Series 18 - $15 Million Guaranteed - Starts Dec 5th

I remember the first time the 'OSS' at the US-friendly America's Cardroom broke $1 million in guaranteed prize pools. These days it looks like a case of 'that escalated quickly' - with $15 million up for grabs this time. Over just a few short years, America's Cardroom has carved a niche as the #1 offshore site for tournaments - and it is not even close.

Back to the current Online Super Series. 

It starts on December 5th, runs through to the 19th, and has an amazing series of tournaments with big guarantees. 

Some of the highlights include:

- Four separate events with $1 million guaranteed
- A $2 million guaranteed main event
- Satellites running around the clock
- Loads of PKO tournaments

Another new feature this time is the introduction of staking. You can hedge your bets, and win money, by staking experienced players.

WPT Online at Party Poker: The Biggest Yet

Party have many tournament events - though this is the only one that crowns the winners as WPT (World Poker Tour) champions. With the amount of satellite qualifiers running already for this event, there is a solid chance that some recreational players will break through. The qualifiers start at just one cent, though you can skip the early rounds and buy-in for bigger amounts too.

This time round, party have added a mini main event as well as the major one. The mini has a $500k guarantee, and a $530 buy-in. The proper Main Event has a $3,200 buy-in main event with a massive $3 million guaranteed prize pool. Add to this WPT500 games, Super50 Knockout games and 'mini' level ($55 etc.) games, and you will see this event is more than just a couple of showcase tournaments. 

Party have an excellent tournament schedule. They have packed it with knockouts, rebuy events and different formats. I'm tipping this site to extend their great run as we see out 2021.

Stay tuned - plenty more events to tell you about in the near future!

Remember to keep an eye on my Poker Satellites main page for the latest live and online events!


Many sites offer regular tournament events these days, often accompanied by their own anagrams and big ‘total guaranteed prizes’ headlines. These are so popular that I decided to create a page covering everything in one place. Here you will find information on what Online Poker events are available, how they work, how you can get the best of out them and links to plenty of other articles for more information on tournament strategy and making the most of the satellite qualifiers.

Poker events are announced all the time, with old ones being changed around and new ideas created. Make sure you bookmark this page now – this will be your reference point for these poker festivals for 2018 and beyond!

What Constitutes An ‘Online Poker Event’ And Which Are The Biggest And Best?

These focus on tournaments and can be anything from 5 to 40 events ranging from a week to a month long. You can expect a ‘main event’ with a big prize pool, and plenty of smaller events, satellites and promotions running alongside. Some include tiered buy-ins, so smaller stakes players can get involved – while others stick to the $100+ entries and run qualifiers to fill up the seats.

PokerStars run the two biggest events of the year:

Pokerstars ‘World Championship Of Online Poker’ (known as the WCOOP). This is the biggest of them all and runs every September, with 60+ events and some of the biggest prize pools you will see in any online tournament… I am talking $5 million guaranteed tournaments with $1 million for the winner here – and up to $40 million in total prizes. As you might imagine, satellite qualifiers to the big events are crazy! Of all the tournament events covered, the WCOOP gives more amateur players life (or at least poker career) changing money than any other! Find out more about the WCOOP and associated satellite qualifiers in this article.

Next in size is the SCOOP, which stands for ‘Spring Championship Of Online Poker’, this one takes place in May and is growing to be almost as big as the World Championship. After a long dark winter there is always an online buzz about this event, which also has 3 tiers of buy-ins and mega prizes for the big events. I should mention the high roller events have eye-watering buy-ins of up to $10,000 and attract big name pros to the tables. For more on the SCOOP and satellites to the events check out this article.

Pokerstars also run 2 more events, the TCOOP (Turbo Championship) and Micro-Millions ( an event especially focused on the smaller buy-ins). I think they have enough coverage on this page already – though of course I will add them to the ‘upcoming events’ list when the next ones are due. For more about Pokerstars in general, you can check out my detailed 2018 Pokerstars review here.

 

Online Poker Tournament Events Elsewhere:

888 Poker Events888 Poker (who are fast developing one of the best poker experienced for recreational and amateur players) have announced their own tourney event. The first 888 Poker Super XL Series will feature $2,000,000 in guaranteed prizes over 87 tournaments. Buy-ins range from $35 up, and there is a big focus on satellites for the events too. Expect the fields to be far softer than equivalent events at the bigger sites! I am tipping this site to be a big success story in 2015 (again!), check out my review here.

Party Poker have only recently jumped on the online poker event train – though they have done an excellent job of it with their PokerFest events. These are shorter events of around 10 days, and feature the higher ($109+) buy-in events, along with a big money main event. There is a big focus on the stage-by-stage qualifiers, which keeps these tournaments very busy. There was $3 million guaranteed at the last running, and I fully expect this to go up next time round after the initial success. What I like about the PokerFest is the large number of extras like special $1 tournaments, leaderboards and jackpots. Party know how to look after their recreational players. Satellites and info can be found on my PokerFest page.

Titan Poker used to run the European Championships, though this has now been replaced with the innovative ‘iPoker Online Poker Series’. This has run twice now, and has a great twist for the main event. Once you get down to the last 27 players, the online tournament stops and the remaining part is played live in a major European city (Barcelona last time). Not only will players be fighting for the best part of the $500k prize pool – there is a chance of some televised fame to go with it. It would be great to see the iPOPs expanding from the current 5 events to include some more games. Keep up with the latest news on my iPOPs page here.

US friendly poker networks are getting to the point where they are big enough to run events of their own. Carbon Poker, on the cool Merge Network, have already run one ‘Poker Maximus’ tournament event, and there are also some one-off specials like the Liberty Tournament which Americas Card room ran to show some defiance on the 1st anniversary of Black Friday. I’ll update the latest list as more events come up, you can also keep an eye on my US friendly poker page for the latest news.

Full Tilt Poker are now back, and with them one of the coolest events around in the form of the 'Full Tilt Online Poker Series' which is usually shortened to FTOPS. This used to happen every few months, and with PokerStars now owning Full Tilt we can expect the gaps between the 'COOP' events to be filled up! There is also a mini-FTOPs which runs separately, this is the same schedule as the bigger events - only with 10% of the buy-ins... as you can imagine the field sizes for the mini-version are huge (and resulting prize pools pretty damn big as well). My review of Full Tilt gives you the low-down on the reincarnation fo this excellent site.

Those are the main events covered, I will add news from other rooms and networks once they get on the online poker events bandwagon!

How Can You Profit From Online Poker Events?

There are three ways you can make money from these events, I will assume that as a SNG Planet reader you are already familiar with the basics of poker tournament strategy… If not then I have a whole section of the site dedicated to exactly that subject here!

Firstly, you should take advantage of the reload bonuses and promotions which usually go along with the events. Pokerstars usually offer a new bonus for each event, and Party are famous for giving their players extra bonuses, and so hardly need the excuse. You should keep some of your poker bankroll in an eWallet such as Skrill (Moneybookers) or Neteller. You can then take advantage of extra bonuses fast.

Second, the satellite qualifiers which go alongside these events are super-soft compared to other games. Many of your opponents will not have a clue about good strategy for the satellite bubble. This should give you a big positive expectation in winning a seat in tournament you might not otherwise have been able to afford. My tip here is to check out the satellites at Titan Poker, those are crazy soft!

Finally, poker tournament events attract 1000’s of amateur and recreational players. If you have read up on your strategy and know a move or two you will be way ahead of the field… all you then need to do is catch a couple of cards to be on your way to what could be the biggest cash of your poker career!
