GGPoker Short Deck Series 2021

GGPoker has in recent times had success hosting big tournament series like the Online WSOP or Omaholics Series. They even have a weekly series called MILLION$ with five million dollars in total guaranteed price pool. Now the time has finally come for a 6+ / Short Deck series, which will feature a total guaranteed price pool of one million dollars. It’s not large compared to many other series, but at least they finally host one.

The Short Deck series will run eight days from Saturday 4th of July to Saturday 11th of July. For any experienced player there should be a lot of value in this series, and to help people plan their schedule we will present an overview of the series and it’s structure here with focus on the Main and Mini Main event. You can find a complete overview of the tournament series at the bottom of this article.

Main and Mini Main Event

$525 Unlimited Re-entry Bounty Main Event $100k GTD

$52.50 Unlimited Re-entry Bounty Mini Main $50k GTD

These will be played with a Stage 1 and a Final Stage, where the final will be played on July 11 at 21:30 CET. Each day will have two Stage 1 tournaments starting at 15:30 CET for the early heat and 21:30 for the late heat.

Play in Stage 1 ends at level 14 (total playing time of close to 4 hours) and it’s important to note that if you qualify in multiple Stage 1 tournaments your bounties and stacks will be combined for the Final Stage. You could potentially play all 15 Stage 1 tournaments and acquire a massive stack and bounty.

Since these are all bounty tournaments it’s not recommended to register late if you can avoid it. It’s important to give yourself the best chance at acquiring a large stack in bounty tournaments.

Side Events and Multiple Stacks

Each day will offer smaller Short Deck tournaments, where most have 2- or 3 Stack formats, which might be unfamiliar to many. If a tournament is a 3-Stack format it means that you would have 3x 10.000 chips at your disposal. It’s up to you if you want to take 10.000, 20.000 or 30.000 to the table, which can be done any time until registration ends. Of course you can take 10.000 at a time and you’ll have two more chances if you bust. Our recommendation would be to always try to cover weaker players at your table. It’s also unlimited re-entry, so if you plan to re-entry always try to cover weaker players.

Most side-events will offer Early Bird Bubble Protection, so if you register before the tournament starts you’ll have the added benefit of bubble protection.

Final Day: 11th of July

Featuring $10,300 Super High Roller $200k GTD

Mark this day in your calendar, if you are a fan of the big buy-in Tournaments. On July 11th, not only the two mains (mini and main) will take place, but also a $10,300 Super High Roller with a guaranteed prize pool of $200K USD will run at 09:10 PM CET. Check in a day or two early to possibly find some satellites for it, but as of now, there are none available.

We wish all participants the best of luck and hope you will have plenty of deep runs. 🍀
