Global Poker Set for RAPIDO Tournament Action
08:27
17 Jun

If you like your poker action fast and furious, then Global Poker’s latest tournament series is right up your street – and the name says it all… RAPIDO!… the US-facing online site promising ‘supersonic action’ with two weeks of turbo and hyper-turbo events among many other speedy formats.

Set to kick-off tomorrow, June 18th, the RAPIDO! Series includes 4- and 6-max tournaments across a range of poker formats, with Crazy Pineapple poker making a first appearance on the legendary Global Poker roster of events which saw the Rattlesnake Open break all sorts of records just last month.

The RAPIDO series boasts SC$160,000 in guarantees, which will almost certainly be easily broken given the popularity of their previous offerings, the Eagle Cup and Grizzly Games to name but two – and the crew at Global Poker will also be adding some new incentives to their ‘off-peak’ hyper-turbos.

What tournaments can I play during RAPIDO?

A look at the RAPIDO $weeps Cash schedule reveals buy-ins ranging from SC$11 all the way up to SC$110 across No Limit Hold’em, Fixed Limit Hold’em, Pot Limit Omaha and now No Limit Crazy Pineapple.

It all kicks off tomorrow evening with event 1, a NLHE $1,500 Guaranteed 4-Max Turbo with 1 rebuy and 1 add-on available – three tournaments every evening ensuring ‘high-octane, high-adrenalin’ action.



The Main Event

As always, the Global Poker tournament series’ culminate in a grand Main Event, and this time it’s a $20k Guaranteed NLHE Turbo 6-max, a $110 buy-in with a chance to become a Global Poker legend. It takes place on Sunday July 1st at 9pm, so be sure stick it in your poker calendar!


What else is on offer?

Alongside the RAPIDO series, Global Poker will be running its daily and weekdays Hyper-Turbo schedule, early mornings and late afternoons taken care of with the Breakfast Epiphanies, Lunch Money and Eyes Wide Shut! tournaments catering for those who just can’t get enough action.

There is also the Gold Coins RAPIDO schedule, allowing you to play tournaments for play money, which you can then convert to $weeps Cash if you fancy a crack at the real action. Two tournaments every evening for the entire length of the series means that nobody misses out.


How does $weeps Cash (SC$) work?

Looking for a way to re-introduce the game to the US market, Global Poker came up with a cunning plan…

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 WorldPay.

Global Poker added WorldPay last month in response to player requests, the world's largest payment platform being listed on the London Stock Exchange earlier this year and processing more than 40 billion transactions annually, utilizing more than 300 different payment types.
