Five Massive Online Series To Get Your Teeth Into

Which online series should you play if you love poker tournaments? We take a look at five that are running now.

Live poker has fallen victim to the COVID-19 coronavirus just like most sporting events. Casinos around the world have bolted their doors shut and poker players are having to return to the online poker world to get their poker fix.

Online series are nothing new, but the sheer number of online series running right now is. It seems every online poker site worth its salt is running a series of its own. You can’t possibly play them all, but you should be aware of five of the best of them.

Borgata Spring Poker Open Online Series

The Borgata Spring Poker Open is one of the most eagerly anticipated live events on the east coast each year. Cancellation looked most likely when coronavirus hit the United States, but they switched to an online series instead.

Borgata’s own online poker site is running the series. It’s essentially the same software partypoker uses.

A $100,000 guaranteed Main Event is the showpiece tournament of this online series. It costs $400 to enter unless you win your seat via one of the many satellites. Get ready to grind on April 12 if you want to play in the Main Event.

The High Five Online Series

The High Five Online Series is running right now at Black Chip Poker and Americas Cardroom. One-hundred tournaments across 20 days make up the bustling tournament schedule. Combine all the guarantees together and you come to the impressive figure of $10 million.

There’s a $450 buy-in Main Event on three consecutive Sundays, starting April 12. Each Main Event has a massive $840,000 guaranteed prize pool.

This online series is available to customers across the United States. Sign up to either site via uspokersites for a 100% up to $1,000 welcome bonus. Spring Championship

Those of you reading this article from Delaware, Nevada, or New Jersey keep reading because this one’s for you. The Spring Online Championships is an online series with 100 numbered events and more than $4 million guaranteed.

It’s played on the online software across a myriad of buy-ins from $10 to $1,000. The Main Event is this online series tournament that everyone wants to win. It costs $525 to enter but guarantees at least $300,000 in the prize pool.

2020 Irish Open Online

The 2020 Irish Open is the 40th edition of this annual event and its the first time it’s being an online series. This festival looked doomed until partypoker came to the rescue and offered to host it online.

You can’t play this series from the United States, but those of you who regularly travel to Canada to play online poker need to know about this festival.

Twenty-two events with combined guarantees worth in excess of €2.7 million are waiting to be won. The €5,200 High Roller took place yesterday and saw the champion scoop €172,188 ($184,241). Can you afford to miss the Irish Open Online?

PokerStars PASCOOP

PokerStars is wasting no time in brining value to Pennsylvania residents. The world’s biggest online poker site recently received a license in the Keystone State and is throwing out al the stops to make itself a success.

PokerStars Spring Championship Of Online Poker (PASCOOP) started on April 4 and runs until April 20. Fifty events will crown their champions during this time and more than $2 million will be won.

Two main events are scheduled for April 19. A $300 buy-in with $200,000 guarantee and a more affordable $50 event with $50,000 guaranteed await.

$50 Million Gtd GGSeries

Rounding up our round-up is the GGSeries on the GG Network. The GG Network started in Asia and is rapidly expanding throughout Europe. Hopefully, it’ll head into the United States soon and run some if its superb festivals.

This latest incarnation of the GGSeries has $50 million guaranteed. That’s incredible, even if there are more than 1,000 tournaments under the GGSeries banner!
