Golden Nugget’s Grand Poker Series Moves To The Fall For 2021


For the first time in its 13-year history, the Grand Poker Series poker tournament festival will be taking place in the Fall. Hosted in thriving Downtown Las Vegas at Golden Nugget, Grand Poker Series has become one of the most popular destinations for players looking for great tournament action. The 2021 Golden Nugget Grand Poker Series features a total of 50 events, spread across 21 days, from Sept. 28 – Oct. 18.

The centerpiece of the festival will be the $500,000 guaranteed $600 buy-in no limit hold’em championship event, which is scheduled Thursday, Oct. 7 through Sunday, Oct. 10. This event has had the prize pool surpass the $1 million mark in recent years. The 2019 running of the championship event attracted a sizable field of 1,313 entries, easily surpassing the guarantee to create a final prize pool of $677,508. Michael Policastro earned $90,630 as the champion.

The championship event features three starting flights this year, each beginning at 11:00 a.m. local time. Players will start with 25,000 in tournament chips, with initial blinds of 100-100 and 40-minute levels which will increase to an hour in length at the final table. The tournament will utilize the big blind ante format. The event is unlimited re-entry. Players may play multiple flights. If a player makes it through more than one starting flight, they will take their largest stack forward to day 2, with their smaller stack(s) removed from play in exchange for a minimum day 2 cash.

The Grand Poker Series features more than $1.2 million in guaranteed prize money across the 50-event schedule. Buy-ins for the series range from as low as $100 all the way up to $600 for the championship event. There will be plenty of formats and games to choose from, including a mixed triple draw lowball event, various pot-limit Omaha and Omaha eight-or-better events, a triple stud event, an eight-game mix event, a H.O.R.S.E. event and a tag-team no-limit hold’em event. There will also be three seniors events, each with a $50,000 guaranteed prize pool.
