GG Spring Festival Announced for 4-25 April

GGNetwork, the host of GGPoker and Natural8, just announced a tournament series for April with the largest series guarantee ever offered in online poker history. The GG Spring Festival will guarantee that players will win at least $150M from 4 April through 25 April. The full series will host more than 300 tournaments in all.

$150 Million Guaranteed

It is almost unthinkable. A series that will run for just three weeks in April will promise to award at least $150M in tournament prize pool money.

The GGPoker Spring Festival will run 4-25 Apri on GGNetwork sites. There will be 110 events, each with three different buy-in levels – low, medium, and high. This will allow players of all bankrolls to participate throughout the series.

Of the 110 events, thirty-nine of them will offer guarantees of at least $1M. And two of those will offer $10M guarantees each.

Players will also be able to participate in weekly leaderboards, earning points for every tournament they play and every in-the-money finish. Each week, there will be three levels of leaderboards:

  • Week 1: $50K Low Leaderboard, $100K Medium, $150K High
  • Week 2: $50K Low Leaderboard, $100K Medium, $150K High
  • Week 3: $75K Low Leaderboard, $125K Medium, $200K High

Altogether, the leaderboards will award $1M throughout the series.

Players can also follow along with streamed broadcasts of some of the biggest final tables on GGPoker.TV. The ones listed so far are:

  • Event H-5 final table on 6 April: $10,300 NLHE Super Million$ ($3M GTD)
  • Main Event final table on 20 April: $10,300 NLHE Super Million$ ($10M GTD)
  • Event H-108 final table on 27 April: $10,300 NLHE Super Million$ ($3M GTD)

  • Opening Act: $80 NLHE ($1M GTD)
  • Opening Act: $80 PLO-NL ($500K GTD)
