GGPoker and the World Series of Poker (WSOP) are teaming up to launch the WSOP Super Circuit Online Series, a three-week online tournament which is due to get underway in May 2020.
What Is The WSOP Super Circuit Online Series?
The WSOP Super Circuit Online Series will consist of “hundreds” of individual poker events and the winner of 18 headline tournaments will receive a World Series Of Poker circuit ring.
The series will also offer two invitations to the $1,000,000 freeroll World Series of Poker Global Casino Championship official bracelet event, with one spot going to the Main Event winner and the other to the overall series points leader.
“I’m thrilled to reveal that GGPoker will be hosting the WSOP Super Circuit Online Series in partnership with World Series of Poker,” said Jean-Christophe Antoine, the head of GGPoker. “A GGPoker and WSOP partnership brings together two like-minded global organisations, and I can’t wait to see GGPoker players competing for WSOP Circuit rings online.
“The move online to GGPoker means that many more players from across the globe will get in on the thrilling WSOP Circuit action, all from the comfort and safety of their own homes. GGPoker players will also be able to qualify for WSOP Super Circuit events via satellite tournaments, ensuring a shot at big prizes and WSOP glory for a potentially low buy-in.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with an operator on the rise who is both aggressive and passionate about growing poker engagement around the world,” World Series of Poker executive director Ty Stewart added. “It was unfortunate that we were forced to cancel so many offline WSOP Circuit events this Spring, but with vast reach GGPoker plans to dwarf the prize pools of the suspended events all at once in one truly Super WSOP Circuit.”
When Will The WSOP Super Circuit Online Series Take Place?
More details will follow in the weeks to come, but GGPoker and WSOP have confirmed that the three-week WSOP Super Circuit Online Series will get underway in May and will run for approximately three weeks.
