Online poker highlights at several of the major online poker sites for the weekend of 23-24 March, 2024

Almost every weekend is a busy one in the world of online poker and this one is no exception, with major series taking place at several sites, a rake free mtt promotion and the Sunday Majors. We mark your card for the key events of the weekend and tell you where the biggest overlays are likely to occur in PokerWired’s weekly preview of the weekend’s online poker highlights.

GG Poker

Running until the end of March, the WSOP Super Circuit on GG Poker will soon enter its final week, with 12 of the 18 gold ring events now completed. There have been no ring events in any danger of overlaying, as is expected for one of the most prestigious online tournament series, on the world biggest site. All of the ring events completed so far have comfortably exceeded their guarantees.

While millions of dollars of prize money have already been awarded, the biggest event of the series is yet to come. There are no ring events that start and conclude this weekend, however there are three phase ring events that all have multiple starting days running over the weekend, including the $525 Main Event. Next week there are a further three ring events in addition to the final stages of the remaining phase tournaments.

$1m Mega Bounty Hits


The single biggest winner of the week was FoldFactory007, who may have been both a little shaken and stirred when he scooped the $1m Mega Jackpot bounty during the $25 GG Bounty Hunter tournament this week. 

If you are yet to register, use the GG Poker bonus code WIRED to get started with a 100% deposit match worth up to $600.

WPT Global

There is a promotion running throughout March on WPT Global whereby all mtt rake is being returned to players via three six-figure freerolls. These have $600,000 in prizepool guarantees and players must participate in a minimum number of tournaments during the month to get an invite to participate. WPT Global has been notorious for overlays and this promotion seems to be working in that respect, as there has been a significant lift in participation in key tournaments which has steadily increased as the month has progressed. Some tournaments that were almost always overlaying are now performing much better.

However, there are three tournaments per day (and six on Sundays) which are designed to almost always overlay. These are the ‘Bump it Up’ tournaments, which are subject to an obligatory 10% guarantee increase if they ever hit their guarantee. Last week was one of those weeks when all the guarantees were met in the Sunday Slams and while that may not have provided any overlay value for those who played them, its going to be far more likely that they return to form and overlay again this weekend, with increased targets to hit.

Some tournaments on WPT Global are still struggling, such as satellites to live WPT events, which continue to offer great value to anyone trying to lock up a seat at a WPT event. Tuesday’s $110 satellite to WPT Korea had five main event seats guaranteed (total guarantee of $10,520) yet only 62 players entered, producing an overlay of $4,320. 

The $22 Daily Escalator is the worst performing Bump It Up event, getting nowhere near its guarantees on some days of the week. Thursday’s edition mustered only 222 entries, when it needed 303 to meet the $6,050 guarantee, producing an overlay of $1,880. Sundays are usually busier, but with all three Sunday Slams carrying increased guarantees this week, these are the most overlay prone tournaments taking place on WPT Global on Sunday.

CoinPoker

Coinpoker’s CSOP (Crypto Series of Poker) Mini starts on Friday 22nd March, and runs daily until March 31st. It is essentially a low roller series of poker, with 42 tournaments on its schedule, including No Limit Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha, with buy-ins ranging from ₮1 to ₮100. The majority of the tournaments cost less than ₮10 to enter and ₮50,000 in guarantees across the series. The main event is staged on Sunday March 31st with a ₮100 buy-in and ₮20,000 guaranteed.

There are four mtts per day on the opening weekend of the CSOP Mini Series, with the key events taking place at 7pm (UK) every night: 





Friday 22nd March₮15Big Bang Mini₮1,000
Saturday 23rd March₮20CSOP PKO Saturday Special Mini₮1,250
Sunday 24th March₮20Sunday Special Mini₮5,000

Coinpoker is also adding ₮5,000 to the series, comprising ₮3,000 in ticket raffles and ₮2,000 worth of series tickets via freerolls.

The Coinpoker promo code MAXBET is available for new customers to use to get a  cash match offer of up to USDT 1100.

Unibet Poker

The €100,000 Anniversary phase tournament which ended last Sunday did indeed miss its guarantee, posting an overlay of €5,005. In total there were 10,555 entries across the seven weeks that phase 1s ran. With the Anniversary Series and the €100,000 Anniversary Phase event now over, Unibet Poker returns to its regular weekly offering.

There haven’t been many overlays in the Sunday Specials on Unibet for the last few weeks, however now that the Anniversary celebrations are over, there could potentially be a post-series dip in liquidity, which once again brings overlays back into play at Unibet Poker.

New players registering for Unibet Poker benefit from a no-deposit required bonus valued at €20, which includes €10 in tournament tickets and €10 in cash game tickets. Players who make a real money deposit receive €200 in bonus, which is released gradually when playing requirements are met. New accounts have 60 days from sign up to clear the bonus.

Grosvenor Poker

The Bounty Hunter Series that runs all month continues this weekend on Grosvenor Poker and other iPoker network sites. Tournaments are scheduled with three different tiers for each event: high, medium and low. The biggest events take place at the weekend and this weekend’s highlight is the €100 Sunday Main with a €75,000 guarantee.

Also running daily at Grosvenor Poker are credit satellites to live events at Grosvenor Casinos. Satellites of various buy-ins run throughout the week, which award credit that can be used for the GUKPT, the 25/50 events, the Goliath or any other live event running at Grosvenor casinos. It’s a very flexible qualifying system, which enables players to accumulate credit from multiple satellites and choose when and where to use it.
