Global Poker Championships Eagle Cup3 years agoSponsored
The eagle has landed for fans of Global Poker – or it very soon will do, at least – with the first leg of The Global Poker Championships spreading its wings from October 2nd to October 30th in the $1.25million guaranteed Eagle Cup.
Global Poker’s unique approach has brought real cash poker back to the USA, their Online World Challenge this summer breaking all sorts of records – almost 150,000 players sharing in the $millions on offer.
What’s the new buzz about?
The Eagle Cup, however, is expected to dwarf all their previous efforts – a 150 tournament series across 4 different categories, with Low, Medium and High stakes $weeps Cash tournaments, as well as Gold Coin tournaments.
The massive series will include multiple variants across both Texas Hold’em and Omaha for players to enjoy. 4-max, 6-max, Full Ring, Deepstack, Turbo, Rebuy, Big Ante, Fixed Limit, Pot Limit and of course No Limit Action are all in there, the Global Poker guys tell me – so there is sure to be something for everyone.
Speaking of which, it opens with a SC$10,000 freeroll which anyone can enter, an introduction to the pokerfest which will follow – including the Main Event with an SC$25,000 Guarantee and one of the OWC’s biggest hits, the $10,000 Monster Challenge freeroll.
What’s so amazing about Global Poker then?
Seriously? Well if the above isn’t enough to go by, and you missed their stunning OWC summer series, here’s a recap of the extremely clever and innovative ideas which the site is built on.
Looking for a way to re-introduce the game to the US market, Global Poker came up with a cunning plan, and…
…here’s how it works:
- You can play with two currencies, Gold Coins and $weeps Cash.
- When you buy Gold Coins we give you bonus $weeps Cash free of charge.
- Gold Coins let you play for fun, but switch to $weeps Cash and you can play for real money.
- Cash out your winnings using PayPal.
That special (winning) feeling
New ideas and ways to make the site special for not only regulars but also the newcomers, Global Poker have used social media, streaming, vlogging, forums, and a host of other concepts to produce a ‘poker clubhouse’ feel – and their latest innovation will see real trophies presented, as well as a ’Global Poker Champions Pack’ mailed direct to your door!
The personalized trophy will feature your name and the tournament you won, and there will be a Global Poker t-shirt and hat to top things off. Not fussed? Well what if I told you they might help you to enter into their ‘Hometown Heroes’ promotion - free $weeps for sharing pictures of yourself in Global Poker gear around town or playing in a local poker tournament. I told you they were clever!
The race to the top!
Even if you don’t win any of the 150 events in the new series, there is a Global Poker Championships Eagle Cup leaderboard to reward consistency.
With a top prize of a $5,000 tournament package (including buy-ins as well as travel and accommodation money) it could be you representing Global Poker on the live felt! Another $10,000 in added value prizes lies in wait for the runners-up and highest finishers, so expect a tough race to the top over the month of October.
The Global Poker Championships schedule has just been released, so the Eagle Cup has well and truly landed! For more info on the fastest-rising poker site on the globe, head to Global Poker Eagle Cup.
