Massive WSOP Super Circuit Series Wraps on GGPoker

Massive WSOP Super Circuit Series Wraps on GGPoker

The numbers are in for one of the largest online poker tournament series in the history of the game. The World Series of Poker wanted to host an online series for its international WSOP Circuit players, and GGPoker wanted to envelop those events into a much larger series. They did it all with a great deal of success.

It was the WSOP Super Circuit Online Series with GGPoker. The two partnered to offer an online version of the international WSOPC events that all had to be cancelled in the past several months due to the coronavirus pandemic. The only alternative was to take it online.

The WSOP and GGPoker originally announced that they would offer 18 WSOPC ring-awarding events. GGPoker then announced its intention to run 595 tournaments in total. From May 3-31, the tournaments would pay out at least $100 million per their guarantees.

All of those numbers changed a bit, but the results still represented a success for all involved.

Final WSOP Super Circuit Numbers

As mentioned, the original plan was to offer 595 tournaments and $100 million in guarantees. Somehow, in the midst of all of the craziness of such a massive schedule, things changed. Many tournaments disappeared from the schedule, though others saw their tournament guarantees boosted.

In the end, the final numbers were as follows:

–Total events: 516 (per GGPoker press release)

–Total number of entries:  485,851

–Total guaranteed prize pools:  $102,365,000

–Total prize pools awarded:  $134,706,274

GGPoker Head of Business Development Jean-Christophe Antoine commented on the numbers. “The GGPoker community fully embraced and supported the WSOP Super Circuit Series. It was thrilling to witness all of the action, and to see every single ring event guarantee exceeded was something all players could be happy about1”

WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart also noted, “The support of the gaming community for WSOPC on GGPoker was insane. No guarantees were too big. Congratulations to all 18 ring event winners.”
