Global Poker’s streaming community has rocketed just in time for the second edition of the Grizzly Games that kicks off next Monday, February 4th, the year’s craziest hand so far boosting the profile of the tournament series and the site itself…

Before we have a look at the highly-anticipated Grizzly Games II, a reminder of what happened when two of the US-facing site’s TwitchTV stars - ‘DMannPoker’ and ‘The Golden Blazer’ – locked horns last weekend…

Quads over quads and a “rollercoaster of emotion” along the way – just the sort of action poker needs to produce for fans of the game, and the Global Poker 2019 Grizzly Games promises that in spades.


The 20-day online festival boasts a guaranteed $850,000 in $weeps Cash™, as well as 150,000,000 Gold Coins for those who prefer the play-money version, so let’s take a closer look at what’s on offer.


Grizzly Games II Schedule

From Monday February 4th, through until Sunday February 24th, there will be four events daily from Monday to Friday, with a packed weekend schedule of seven apiece on Saturdays and Sundays.


Which games are on offer?

No-Limit Hold’em, Pot-Limit Omaha and Fixed-Limit Hold’em tournaments form the mainstay of the online series, with deepstacks, rebuys and the usual mix of popular Global Poker tournament structures.


What are the buy-ins?

Starting at a lowly SC$3.30 (for the SC$3,000 guaranteed rebuy 4-max, for example) all the way up to SC$218 (for the Sunday SC$50,000 guaranteed deep-stack tournament).

This means that players of every bankroll size can participate, and if things haven’t been going so well, there’s the Gold Coins schedule to keep your competitive hand in while you build it up again.


Last year’s massive payouts

Last year’s Grizzly Games series saw the guarantees almost doubled across the entire schedule, close to SC$2million handed out, with Sandra ‘MommyGingerly’ Lefler taking down two events to finish atop the Grizzly Games leaderboard.

That hot run handed Sandra a $5k live tournament package, and she went on to score over $7k at the Wynn Classic in Las Vegas.



This year’s promises

The second edition promises to be an even bigger hit with the players, and if you register now you’ll receive 5,000 free Gold Coins to see what the big fuss is all about. Just head over to GlobalPoker.com and follow the simple instructions to get your bonus.
