Ready for some rings? GGPoker has established itself as a major player in the online poker realm. When the gang at GGPoker partner with the World Series of Poker, it gave them entree to the most prestigious tournament brand in poker. The WSOP and GGPoker will kick off 2021 with an online series that offers $100 million in guaranteed prize pools and they'll dole out 20 coveted WSOP Circuit rings with 18 set aside to tournament champions and another two set aside for cash game gurus. And, yes that's right, you can get a WSOP Circuit ring by playing cash games.
Get ready for a wild rumpus starting May 1 with the WSOP Super Circuit Online Series. The Main Event will be one of those "do not miss by hook or by crook" events.

The WSOP Super Circuit Online Series Main Event winner will become the first member of GGTeam Champions. They'll get a $50,000 contract and all the perks of the GGTeam Champions.
The low-tier buy-ins make the WSOP Super Circuit Online an affordable series for players of all levels and bankrolls. The lowest buy-in is $25 and the highest is only $840. These events will be played out on the weekends and on Tuesday. That means that players with day jobs have a chance to grind most of the events instead of missing out on fun events that run on the weekdays.

"When GGPoker & WSOP partnered in 2020, we broke world records," said GGPoker Head of Poker Operations Steve Preiss. "Our plans for 2021 are to offer even more to our customers. With massive tournaments, WSOP gold bracelets and rings, and a route into the live WSOP Main Event in November, we hope players will love what we have in store for them."
"The bar has been set with last year's record-breaking series, but we're hoping to raise it even higher this year," said Gregory Chochon, Director of the World Series of Poker. "One of our goals is to provide as many people the chance to become champions as possible. However, we know not everyone can or is comfortable traveling yet, so continuing a robust online bracelet offering in 2021 is a must."
Oh, and there's another big online series down the line. GGPoker will host something called the WSOP Winter Online Super Circuit later. But the dates and details have yet to be confirmed. It's coming... later in 2021. Stay tuned for more info.
