Lowest Buy-in Events

Let's start off with a couple of appetizers, which turn out to be some of the tastiest slices on the menu. The lowest buy-in events of the schedule offer incredible value compared to their guarantees, making it a must-play for those with deeper as well as shallower poker wallets. Event #40: BIG 50 is the lowest priced event on the calendar, clocking in at a modest $50, but with a lofty $1,000,000 guarantee attached to it it's a can't miss event.

Speaking of can't-miss, Event #1: The Opener will kick things off in high gear right off the bat with a buy-in of $100 and a $2,000,000 guarantee. Event #53: WSOP MILLION$ is another event that'll payout at least $2M among its players while the price of admission remains at a respectable $100.

Biggest Guarantees

The one- and two million dollars in guaranteed prize pools already make the lowest buy-in events stand out, but there are even juicier prize pools out there for those looking for the biggest bang for their buck. Event #32: Mini Main Event, Event #17: MILLIONAIRE MAKER, and Event #52: WSOP Super MILLION$ all start off with at least $5,000,000 in guarantees.

The biggest buy-in event on the calendar, Event #39: NLH POKER PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP puts up a steep $25,000 barrier to access, but offers a mouth-watering $10,000,000 in return. This guarantee is only eclipsed by Event #46: No-Limit Hold'em Main Event, which comes with the biggest-ever guarantee in only poker of $25,000,000 while costing $5,000 to play. Only three buy-ins are allowed per player, levelling the playing field.

Asia Timezone Events

Traditionally, most big online tournaments kick off in the European evening and American afternoon. Unfortunately, this often forces those on the Eastern side of the globe to set their alarms and pour themselves a big mug of coffee in order to compete. GGPoker has that covered as well and offers ten tournaments all conveniently kicking off at noon GMT, making it a perfect early evening starting time for those in Asia and Australia.

To make things even better, GGPoker will also keep tabs on a leaderboard specifically for this time zone, and award a gold Dragon statue to the player that scores the most points across these events.
