The GSOP Live series had a very successful debut in its first season, coming back strong for a second season that kicks off with what promises to be a unique event in Manchester. Instead of the usual casino locale the tournament will take place in Old Trafford stadium, home of Manchester United!
GSOP Live Manchester continues the recipe that made for popular events during its first season, with stops at various attractive locales around Europe (plus the Caribbean for the season two finale) and more affordable buy-ins than EPT and WPT events — not to mention much softer fields due to the number of online qualifiers.
PartyPoker and Betfair are our recommendations as far as the best sites to try to win your trip package, as they offer a variety of online satellites and exclusive promos to send players to all GSOP Live stops.
One unique twist are the CoinFlip qualifiers on Ongame sites that send dozens of players to each GSOP Live event; they’re true coinflips with players all-in every hand so the field at GSOP Live Manchester (and all the other stops) will be even softer than normal.
GSOP Live Manchester will also offer side events and should produce a good turnout, with the winner likely in line for a payday of close to $100,000. Season one had good attendance for all the GSOP Live stops, with Betfair, bwin, and other Ongame skins sending a ton of players to boost the overall numbers.
