In addition to individual prizes there are Forum Prizes awarded to the best performing community sites based on their players’ performance. The prize pool put up by Intertops for this series is the largest overall prize pool for any GGE series since it started running its massive added prize pool tournaments over four years ago.

"Our $5000 free roll in October was a fantastic kick-off for our OFC Series at Intertops," said Wolf Rosenberg of GGE which produces the Online Forum Challenge. "Our next buy-in tournament gives players the amazing opportunity to receive $10 simply for playing in a $5 tournament. You’re ahead before the first hand is dealt so you really can't lose, thanks to Intertops."
