Just in time for the WSOP Online events, GG Poker will allow poker fans and players to purchase a portion of a player’s action on Day 2. This means that as players advance in the tournament, staking opportunities will still be allowed GG Poker ambassador Daniel Negreanu says that the new platform can be used for “intelligent investing.”
