New Genting Poker Series Bounty Satellites!

By Gary Oakes, posted April 23, 2012

We are delighted to announce some new weekly satellites to the rosta for the Genting Poker Series, and these have ADDED value!

NAME: GPS Bounty Sat

Schedules: Sundays at 6pm until further notice, late reg for first hour

Buy In: £20 + £2 with £10 Rebuys and £10 Add On

Chips: 2000 / 4000 (RB) / 6000 (AO)

Prize Pool: 1 x £430 GPS Main Event Seat token Guaranteed, plus 1 x £430 GPS Main Event Seat token Bounty Added.


Each Sunday a top UK poker pro will play as a bounty in the GPS Bounty Sat.  Knock him/her out and you’ll win their seat to a Genting Poker Series Main Event!  You’ll get to play a GPS Main Event as our sponsored player!

The Satellite pays out 1 x £430 Genting Poker SEries Main Event seat Guaranteed out of the prize pool, paying out another £430 GPS Main Event seat for every £430 collected.  The balance of monies collected but below £430 is paid out normally in cash.  It also has the Bounty Seat ADDED.

Note: The bounty seat you are winning is a sponsored seat, therefore you will play as a sponsored player. 50% of any money you win as a sponsored player in that event will be paid back to your sponsor (Genting), but remember the Bounty seat is ADDED value, it is not being deducted from the Satellite prize pool.

The other seats won in the Satellite (as part of the prize pool) are normal seats, not subject to any deduction.

The pro player will use the Rebuys and will take the Add On.

So take on the pro, take their seat and become a sponsored pro!
