The opening day of the GG Spring Festival kicks off with a bang as it features tournaments with guarantees of more than $15 million. Slated to award the biggest slice of that is Event H-06: $25,500 Sunday Five Million, which is the joint-biggest tournament on the entire schedule.
In total, nine $25,500 High Rollers take place including three Sunday Five Million editions. As the name might suggest, the tournament comes with a massive guarantee of $5 million. The biggest names in the world of online poker are expected to take part and the early list of entries.
Some 90 minutes prior to the start, the early entrants include the GGPoker ambassadors Fedor Holz and Anatoly Filatov, Koray Aldemir, Wiktor Malinowski, Patrick Leonard, Bruno Volkmann, Aleksejs Ponakovs, Juan Pardo Dominguez, Yuri Dzivielevski, David Yan, Pablo Brito Silva, David Peters, Benjamin Rolle, and Timothy Adams to name all but a few.
They all start with 100,000 in chips and the levels last 15 minutes each for the entire duration of the day. The tournament is played in an eight-handed format and unlimited re-entries are available during the registration period. According to the GGPoker lobby, that is the case for six hours in total.
The action gets underway at 8.05 p.m. GMT and Day 1 will conclude once the nine-handed final table has been determined. All survivors then return the following day at 7.05 p.m. GMT to play down to a champion. Stay tuned for the high-stakes action as the PokerNews live reporting team will provide as many key hands as possible.
