Right after the end of Boosted Week, poker players from all over the world can look forward to the next tournament promotion on the fastest growing online poker network. High Rollers Week returns to the GGPoker Network and takes place from June 6 to 13.
The schedule of the high stakes competition includes a total of 27 tournaments and $15.3 million in guarantees. Compared to the last extended HRW in November 2020, the average buy-in has been cut into more than half. Eight tournaments will cost $525 to enter whereas another ten have a price tag of $1,050.
Crown jewel of the festival is the Anniversary Edition of the $10,300 Super MILLION$, which took place for the first time in June 2020. Since then, it has been running every Sunday and has become a fixture in the schedule for High Roller regulars from all over the world.
Lets take a closer look at some key details for the latest HRW edition.
- Date: June 6 to 13
- Number of Tournaments: 27
- Total Guarantees: $15,300,000
- Lowest / Highest Buy-In: $535 / $10,300
- Total Buy-Ins: $51,250
- Average Buy-In: $1,898
Only one tournament features a five-figure buy-in and that’s the $10,300 Super MILLION$. It comes with a massive $5 million guarantee and features five starting days in total. The first one takes place right away on June 6 and the last chance to build a stack for Day 2 will be on June 13. All survivors then return on Monday, June 14 to play down to the final table, which will be streamed on the GGPoker.tv Twitch channel on Tuesday, June 15.
Returning events as part of the HRW schedule include the Bounty Hunters Main Event with a $525 price tag and $1 million guarantee. The same prize pool will be up for grabs in the $1,050 GGMasters High Rollers, which also takes place on the opening Sunday.
Eight tournaments will determine a winner throughout two days such as the two Sunday High Rollers Main Events, and daily Main Events including the Super Tuesday, and Thursday Thriller. Satellites for the first tournaments can already be found in the Natural8 tournament lobby, which now includes the dedicated HRW tab.
Three Omaholic Bounty tournaments have also been included in the schedule to attract four-card lovers. Event #4 $2,100 Omaholic Bounty features a $250k guarantee on June 6 followed by Event #19 with the same price tag and a $150k guarantee on June 11. Last but not least, Event #26 $5,250 Omaholic High Roller concludes the series on June 13 with a prize pool of at least $300k.
Both Sundays during the festival will feature three events with a $1 million guarantee and the entire schedule contains special HRW editions of popular High Roller showdowns on the GGPN. For a full overview of all events, check out the promotion page or the Natural8 software client.
During the previous High Rollers Week in November 2020, the 20 events paid out more than $25.5 million in prize money. However, back then the average buy-in was $5,776 and it seems unlikely that the same overall numbers will be reached this time.
