GGNetwork introduces Bubble Protection

Publish: 2019-07-24 15:22:07

All players, who "bubble" a tournament will get their buy-in back if they register before the late reg. period.



GGNetwork adds yet another unique feature to its software in the form of the "Bubble Protection". If a player bubbles a tournament (meaning, busts one place away from the paid places) they will get their buy-in back - but only if, they registered to the tournament before it started.

“Bubble Protection is very popular in Live Poker tournaments and was tried online before but only as a third-party tool, never as an automatized, built-in feature,” said Jean-Christophe Antoine, Head of GGNetwork.

“Moreover, we decided to reward the players who register to tournaments before they start since they are the ones getting the games going. This is our gift to them,” he added.

Back in 2011, a third-party solution, the "Beat The Bubble" service was launched, where players had to pay a certain amount of fee for the same buy-in return guarantee. This service is not available anymore. GGNetwork and doesn't charge a fee for this new feature.

While technically only one player can bubble a tournament, but GGNetwork extended the guarantee for more spots, in case of bigger fields.

In tournaments, under 100 entries, only one player will receive their buy-in back, while they'll return the buy-ins for two players in tournaments with entries between 100 and 500, and three in 500-1000-entry strong fields. The biggest tournaments with over 10,000 entries will get 10 extra bubble spots.

This feature creates a "new bubble", meaning that from now on, the real bubble will be the players, who bust before the Bubble Protection spots.

However, as this is a completely free extra, which means 1%-2% extra in the prize pools this feature offers great extra value for the MTT players.

The Bubble Protection is available at both of our GGNetwork partners, GGPoker and Natural8.
