The KSOP GGPoker Special is just around the corner, with satellites to the event continuing to run on the world’s largest poker site. Another satellite to the main event took place on Thursday (30th), and seven other players secured seats for just $55.
The tournament had 3 guaranteed seats and over the guaranteed number of 95 entrants, more players than expected took home the $3,500 buy-in for the KSOP GGPoker Special Program Main Tournament for a total prize pool of $5,000,000.

Prominent individuals who have qualified include Douglas Barbosa from the state of Minas Gerais, holder of a major online poker title. By qualifying for the satellite at the last stage, he demonstrated his experience in this type of competition and also confirmed his presence at Balneário Camboriú.
Another qualifier is Gustavo Biguethi, “cagaum,” who will also cause problems for his opponent in Santa Catarina. The list still has the following nicknames, but not names: “Biglips_BRA,” “MGM_Grand,” “EinsteinPoker,” and the Argentines “bece12” and “potrillo.” The next batch of satellites is expected to be announced later on Friday (31st).
Qualified players received a $3,500 Main Event buy-in, guaranteeing $5,000,000. The KSOP GGPoker Special will be held at the ExpoCentro in Balneário Camboriú from April 20th to 30th. 85 packages and 44 seats have been distributed.
