GGPoker unveiled today the return of one of their flagship tournament offerings.

The GGMasters Overlay Edition returns for its fourth iteration this month. The first of four Day 1 flights kicks off on Sunday, February 18--with Day 2 slated for February 26th.

As always, the Overlay Edition offers players an inexpensive chance at life-changing money with the buy-in priced at just $150. Plus, there are countless satellite opportunities, starting as low as $0.25, to ensure that players of all bankroll sizes can take a shot at the massive prize pool.

"There’s no other tournament like the GGMasters Overlay Edition - a freezeout with a reasonable buy-in, an enormous guarantee and the possibility of some major value!” said Daniel Negreanu, GGPoker Global Ambassador. “Last year, we saw a $1M overlay; who knows what’s in the cards in 2024?”

“The GGMasters Overlay Edition is a cornerstone in GGPoker’s commitment to giving back to our community,” added Sarne Lightman, Managing Director of GGPoker. “We’re already handing out over $15M in promotions right now through our Lunar New Year Giveaways, and adding the $10M-guaranteed GGMasters Overlay Edition into the mix sweetens the pot even more - February is going to be amazing at GGPoker!”

As mentioned, the 2023 GGMasters Overlay Edition saw a record-breaking field of 64,622 entrants, but lived up to its name by falling short of the guarantee by over $1,000,000. German professional Philipp Gruissem emerged victorious from the massive field and took home $806,385 for his efforts. The win marked the start of Gruissem's return to poker after taking time away from the tables to start a family .
