The month of February has come, and with it, the start of the KSOP GGPoker season 2023 draws closer. Next week, Rio de Janeiro will host the first stage of the most popular national circuit, which promises to be even better thanks to this year’s new collaborations. And immediately, five million Brazilian reals will be at risk in the Marvelous City.
This month’s KSOP GGPoker RJ is scheduled to take place at the Sheraton Grand Rio Hotel & Resort between the 8th and 14th. The tournament schedule has undergone modifications and additions that promise to make the competition even more wild, in addition to providing participants with several opportunities to pay.
Seven reasons why Rio de Janeiro will be a must-see next week according to the KSOP GGPoker
The official sponsor of the KSOP is GGPoker. Create an account, compete for event tickets through satellites, and use the grid on the website.
Although the usual Main Event (R$1,500,000) and High Roller (R$1,000,000) will have the largest prize pools (R$1.5 million and R$1 million, respectively), several additional events will also have enormous prize pools. The Mystery Bounty format will include not one, but two events, enhancing the excitement and the opportunity for participants to win large rewards even if they do not bust.
Below is a rundown of the most important tournaments of the KSOP GGPoker RJ:
Main Event – $1,500,000
The format of the main event of the first stage of the KSOP GGPoker RJ remained the same as in previous years. The R$1.5 million Main Event will last four days. The event will feature a buy-in of R$2,500 and six qualifying days beginning on the 9th and ending on the 12th. The second day will also begin on the 12th, but the blinds will be increased to 60 minutes to enhance the players’ performance. Day 3 occurs on February 13, and the Last Day occurs on the final day of the stage on February 14.

Rio’s High Roller event, one of the most coveted by players, will also include a guaranteed millionaire. The tournament, known for drawing the top players on the scene, will include a new element. The buy-in has raised from R$6,000 to R$7,000, and the rewards are now at R$1 million. Registration is available until Day 2 of the three-day competition, which starts on Day 12 with Day 1.
