GG Poker’s The Road to Vegas WSOP Satellite Promotion is Heavily Overlaying 

It’s not often that you associate the world’s biggest online poker site with missed guarantees and overlays. Well, that is unless it is their intention to overlay, as was the case for last month’s GG Masters Overlay edition.

However, GGpoker's Road to Vegas satellite promotion for the WSOP is not intended to overlay, but has been quietly missing guarantees for the last couple of weeks and the amount of overlay that has accumulated in such a short period of time is nothing short of astonishing - giving you an opportunity to benefit.

The Road to Vegas satellites first appeared on GG Poker on March 9th, with the first direct qualifier taking place a day later, on March 10th. The site didn’t really hard launch it at this time, but Daniel Negreanu was quoted as saying that the site was aiming to deliver 1,000 qualifiers for the WSOP main event in 2024. Last year the site sent 774 hopefuls to the world’s biggest and most prestigious poker tournament and this seemed like a natural progression and not one that anyone had any doubt about being achieved. Even with a soft launch (simply scheduling satellites in the client and not really announcing that they had started), the first direct satellite did surprisingly well. It had a 10 package guarantee and it blew that out of the water, producing 23 package winners at a canter.

The qualifying period is just short of four months long and GG Poker is only four weeks into qualifying and already 284 packages have been awarded, with only a handful of duplicate winners. That’s more than a quarter of their 1,000 target in less than a quarter of the time available. With the main event still over three months away, the peak time for interest in qualifying is yet to come, so on the face of it, it’s a pretty good start. 

But behind the facade of the sheer number of qualifiers there is a different story, one of huge missed guarantees and massive value for overlay hunters. If you weren’t aware that these satellites were producing such value that’s not surprising as players participating in overlaying tournaments tend to keep as quiet as possible about it, lest it reduces the value they are eating.   

Our tip then: Go play in the GG Poker Road to Vegas events now!
