Betfair Poker offering GSOP VIII Satellites

The Grand Series of Poker (GSOP) is right around the corner since it starts on February 26th and runs until March 18th. And players can expect tons of prize money in GSOP VIII because $3.85 million is guaranteed across both the main tournaments and GSOP Mini.

Assuming you’re interested in participating in this huge online poker event, Betfair Poker is already running daily GSOP VIII satellites. These satellites are listed in the Befair lobby, and they give you the opportunity to win a seat for any of the main GSOP VIII poker tournaments (no GSOP Mini satellites are offered). As for some of the tourneys that will be offered, here is a quick look at the major ones:

GSOP VIII
Event #1 on Feb. 26th – $500,000 Hold’em Deepstack with a $190 + $10 buy-in
Event #9 on Mar. 3rd – $400,000 Hold’em Deepstack with a $190 + $10 buy-in
Event #17 on Mar. 11th – $500,000 Hold’em with a $500 + $25 buy-in
GSOP Grand Slam Final on Mar. 18th – $500,000 Hold’em with a $4,900 + $100 buy-in

GSOP Mini
Event #1 on Feb. 26th – $50,000 Hold’em Deepstack with a $20 + $2 buy-in
Event #15 on Mar. 9th – $ 30,000 Hold’em One Rebuy & Add-on with a $20 + $2 buy-in
Event #17 on Mar. 11th – $100,000 Hold’em with a $50 + $4 buy-in
Grand Slam Mini on Mar. 18th – $200,000 Hold’em with a $500 + $25 buy-in

Aside from the huge poker tournaments that are running during GSOP VIII, there’ll also be a Grand Slam Leaderboard and $1,000 Highroller Sidebet offered. With the Grand Slam Leaderboard, players earn points based on their finishes within the various GSOP tournaments. The leaderboard winner receives a $5k GSOP Grand Slam Final seat, while the rest of the top 100 players battle for three remaining Grand Slam Final seats in a freeroll.

Moving to the $1,000 Highroller Sidebet, this is truly a promo for high rollers because players have to make a $1,000 side wager on their GSOP performance to participate. Whoever makes this side bet and does the best throughout the tournament series will get the largest share of the prize money along with a $525 Event #17 ticket. Depending on how many players make the side bet, there will be more cash distributed amongst the top players.
