GGPoker announces online festival that runs against PokerStars SCOOP April 4-25

The battle for online poker market share between the world’s top operators continues in April, with both GGPoker and PokerStars offering massive tournament festivals.

Fresh off the release of the PokerStars SCOOP 2021 schedule, GGPoker announced a competing spring tournament series Monday. The GG Spring Festival (GGSF) plays out April 4-25 at GGPoker, the same exact dates of the PokerStars SCOOP 2021.

The GG Spring Festival includes 110 events, with each offering a low, medium, and high buy-in tier. That three-tier format should look familiar to online players, as it’s the same structure used by PokerStars for all of its Championship of Online Poker series.

Let’s take a glance at what players can look forward to at GGPoker for the GG Spring Series:

GG Spring Series Highlights

The 330 total tournaments across the three-week series offer a combined $150 million in prize money. The GG Spring Series offers a slew of high-stakes events, but plenty of more affordable buy-ins can also be found across the festival schedule.

A pair of $10 million guaranteed events highlight the GG Spring Series slate. The first of those begins April 11, as the GGSF Super MILLION$ ONLINE kicks off with the first of five Day 1 flights.

The $10,300 buy-in event will undoubtedly draw a field of poker’s toughest high rollers, as per usual in the weekly Super MILLION$ High Roller event.

The other $10 million guarantee comes in the GGSF Main Event-H ONLINE (No-Limit Hold’em) event. That tournament offers a $1,500 buy-in and kicks off April 25.

The buy-ins for the GG Spring festival range from the low stakes ($30) to the high rollers ($25,500), with something for just about every bankroll range in between.
