Genting Poker Series online starts today

Thursday, 27 September 2012

After four live stops, the Genting Poker Series heads online for a seven event series starting this evening. The main attraction of course is the £400+£30 Main Event which features a guaranteed prize pool of £100,000.

The Main Event gets under way at 5pm on Sunday 30th September with players starting with 25,000 chips with 15 minute blinds. Unlike their live equivalents, the online leg of the Genting Poker Series will be done and dusted in one day rather than the usual three.

The side event action gets under way on Thursday with a £5,000 GTD £50+£50 PLO event. The full line up can be seen below:

Thurs   #1 £50 + £5 PLO Re-Buy £5,000 GTD 19:00 4000 Chips 10 min blinds
Fri     #2 £20 + £2 R/A Sat (NLHE Re-Buy) - 5 Seats GTD 19:00 200 Chips 10 min blinds

 “With a £100,000 in the prize fund guaranteed, Sunday’s Main Event is the biggest tournament currently available on the iPoker network” said Gary Oakes, Poker Manager for Genting. “Around 60 of our regular players have already secured their seats and we have a host of online qualifiers over the next week. As the Series has taken shape, it has become clear that Genting Poker has created a series both appeals to recreational and professional players alike." 

Genting put up £800,000 in guaranteed pots for this series at the start of the year, but each of the four legs to date have smashed the guarantee, ensuring that the GPS has become a £1million series.

Take part in the online leg of the GPS at Genting Poker with a first deposit bonus of up to $2,000.
