GGPoker Ready for High Rollers Week November 8-15
Before the coronavirus pandemic, high-stakes poker players often found high-stakes tournaments around the world. Whether in Macau or Las Vegas, at European Poker Tour (EPT) stops or at the Aussie Millions, there were a variety of live options.
Now that the world is in some form of seemingly perpetual lockdown, online poker operators must step up and offer tournaments for high-stakes players. GGPoker has become a player favorite for such events in 2020…and likely going forward.
This week, GGPoker announced its latest iteration of High Rollers Week. From November 8-15, twenty tournaments will guarantee $22 million in prize money.
A Series for Big Bankrolls
High Rollers Week kicks off on Sunday, November 7 on GGPoker. Players with access to GGPoker, from Canada to Mexico and further around the world, will be able to play.
Two events will serve as the highlights of the series, Events 2 and 18. The former is the Super Millions with $3 million guaranteed, and the latter is the Main Event with $5 million guaranteed. Those two events will be livestreamed with commentating by Nanonoko and Rotterdam.

Battle of Malta Already Underway
GGPoker is already full of action, not only from regular traffic but from those flocking to play the Battle of Malta online.
The Battle of Malta has a years-long history of bringing poker players to the Portomaso Casino at this time each year. The Malta Poker Festival is an affordable mid-major series…one of many around the world cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Battle of Malta organizers coordinated with GGPoker to take the series online for broader participation. It kicked off on November 1 and runs through November 22 with 15 primary events and $30 million in guarantees. There is even a leaderboard competition that will award up to 50 Battle of Malta 2021 prize packages for next year’s hopefully-live series.
Players without high-stakes bankrolls may find Battle of Malta tournaments more to their liking. But there are also satellites running around the clock for all of the tournaments, including those on the High Rollers Week schedule.
