We receive numerous inquiries from players about our weekly Private Tournaments at GGPoker. The relevant information can be found on our site, but here’s an article that should also help explain the mechanics of our weekly YPD tournaments.
Which YPD tournaments are there?
There is our weekly $1,000 tournament and, on the last Saturday of every month, our $3,000 tournament. Additionally, for all new players and first time depositors, we have a special C$2,000 GGPoker Welcome Freeroll.
Note that, as an extra incentive, with our $1,000 and $3,000 tournaments you always collect points for our $20,000 YPD MTT Masters Leaderboard.
What do I have to do to take part in the weekly $1,000 tournament (602010)?
Attention: Only those players with a GG player account that is linked to YPD as an affiliate are allowed to participate in our exclusive tournaments and promotions. If you have an existing player account that was not created with our link and bonus code, YPD, then – unfortunately – we are unable to do anything – We can’t retag existing player accounts!
It does not help just to register at YourPokerDream and include there your GGPoker Email of your existing account!
A player must earn a minimum of $2 Netrake every week, from Friday to Thursday, which corresponds to two YPD points. Maintaining this (easy) tally is the only way to receive a ticket! Don’t forget that even if you have already earned 100 YPD points during the previous week you still need to earn two points in the next… The calculation period is always from Friday to Thursday.
Your Netrake (not the standard rake!) is important. We know that this calculation is not optimal, but with GG there is, unfortunately, no other option because we only get the Netrake displayed and we don’t see your usual rake at all. It’s well worth familiarizing yourself with the calculation of Netrake in order to avoid misunderstandings.
What do I have to do to participate in the monthly $3,000 tournament (602010H)?
In this tournament your YPD points earned up to two days before the start of the tournament are key. You need a minimum of $15 Netrake/15 YPD points to receive a tournament ticket.
How do I qualify for a $20,000 YPD Masters Promotion prize?
In order to receive a prize in our $17,500 YPD MTT Masters Leaderboard you must have accumulated at least 150 YPD points from October 1st to December 31st, 2021. Players with fewer points will not be eligible to receive a prize from the Leaderboard, but will receive a ticket to our $2,500 Second Chance Freeroll! You can see your monthly YPD points status in your YPD account under Overview.
The top 25 players who collect enough YPD points during the relevant three months will each receive a cash prize based on their Leaderboard ranking. Those who place outside the top 25 will receive a ticket to our exclusive $2,500 Second Chance Freeroll, which is open only to players who have not received a prize from the Leaderboard and who have earned at least 1 point on our YPD Masters Leaderboard.
How do I get a ticket for the $2,000 Welcome tournament?
This tournament is exclusive to players who register for the first time via YourPokerDream and make a first deposit of at least $50.
We will endeavor to continuously update this article and keep you informed about any developments.
