GGPoker has launched a new tournament format that combines sports with poker in a unique twist. The initial raft of Bet & Go tournaments begin shuffling up and dealing on November 20, just in time for a certain football festival taking place in the Middle East!
Each of the Bet & Go tournaments is linked to an upcoming sporting event, and features two buy-ins that are discounted by each team or opponent’s odds of winning. For example, if you pledge your allegiance to the favorites, you will have a smaller discount applied to your buy-in compared to someone supporting the sporting event’s underdogs.
The twist of the new Bet & Go tournaments is that any surviving players in the tournament are eliminated from the tournament if they support the losing team in the real-life sporting event once that game ends!
“With Bet & Go tournaments, GGPoker players can support their favorite teams or simply take advantage of the biggest discounts and cheer for the underdogs,” said GGPoker Global Ambassador Daniel Negreanu. “Watch your team win the event and you’ll be free to continue to play your way into the money; it could be a win-win for you!”
How Bet & Go Tournaments Work
Bet & Go tournaments are already in the GGPoker lobby waiting for you to get involved. The first kicks off at 4:00 p.m. GMT on November 20, and revolves around the football match between Qatar and Ecuador, which literally kicks off at the same time.
The Bet & Go: Qatar vs Ecuador tournament features a $50,000 guarantee for what should be a $10 buy-in. However, at the time of writing, anyone choosing to support Qatar can buy-in for $3.63, and those supporting Ecuador can enter for $5.37. This tournament’s buy-ins will alter as the Qatar vs. Ecuador game progresses.
If your chosen team wins after the 90-minutes of regulation time or the game ends in a draw, you and everyone else continue playing in the tournament as normal. However, should you select the team that loses the real-life fixture, you will be eliminated from the tournament shortly after the Qatar vs. Ecuador game concludes!
