Out of a field brimming with 6,023 players, only 761 secured their places for Day 2. The remaining nine contenders are gearing up for an intense showdown tonight. With each hoping to secure at least $250,000, the ultimate victor will be taking home an incredible $2,783,432.
Rewinding to 2020, GGPoker had already made waves in the online poker community. They hosted a tournament that etched their name in the Guinness World Records with a prize pool of $27,559,500. But as they say, records are meant to be surpassed. GGPoker did exactly that, by breaking their own benchmark.
Yesterday’s $5,000 WSOP Online MAIN EVENT was not just another tournament. Attracting players from all corners, it created an unprecedented prize pool of $28,609,250. This achievement didn’t just set a new record, but also sent a clear message to the poker community about GGPoker’s unmatched commitment.
In comparison, PokerStars had previously held the record with an $18.6M offering during their 14th Anniversary Sunday Millions. While impressive, GGPoker has undeniably raised the bar, reinforcing its position as a hub for online poker enthusiasts.
