GGPoker Launches Online Satellites
On October 10, GGPoker announced – and launched on the same day – satellites for the WSOP Europe Main Event. They are taking place on GGPoker and Natural8, both skins on the GGNetwork that share a player pool.
The Road to WSOP Europe starts its satellite program at the €25 level, though players can also buy in to direct satellites at €250. That Main Event seat is worth €10K, and the Main Event itself is guaranteeing €5M in the prize pool.
(It appears that GGPoker is awarding only the Main Event seat, not broader prize packages, to satellite winners. The terms and conditions note that players are responsible for booking their own travel and accommodations.)
The satellite schedule is on a dedicated GGPoker page, showing multiple opportunities to play satellites every day of the week. Each satellite also posts a guarantee.
