The Golden Nugget Casino in Las Vegas is preparing to host the 8th edition of the Grand Poker Series which is scheduled to start on the 27th of May and finish on the 3rd of July. The Grand Poker Series will run parallel to the 2015 World Series Of Poker (WSOP) which will take place at the Rio in Las Vegas.
The Grand Poker Series is expected to draw hundreds of poker players from all over the country as well as international poker players who are attending the 2015 WSOP. The Grand Poker Series has a guaranteed prize pool of $1,600,000 and will feature a number of exciting events. The tournament is known for staging exciting events that have low buy-ins to enable more poker players to take part and test their skills.
It also gives unknown poker players a perfect opportunity to make a name for themselves and walk away with considerable sums of cash. The 2015 Grand Poker Series will feature a total of 56 events with the minimum buy-in starting at $100 and the highest buy-in capped at $560.
The $560 buy-in is for the Main Event which features a guaranteed prize pool of $500,000. There are also eleven separate $100,000 guaranteed tournaments that come with a $350 buy-in.
