The Global Poker Eagle Cup tournament series is back and runs Oct. 20- Nov. 10. This tourney will be the site’s biggest Eagle Cup series to date with a guarantee of over $1.1 million in “sweeps cash” on the line.
Players will want to jump into the action – with numerous “gold coin” events on the line as well. That includes buy-ins for every bankroll. Winners of both gold coin and sweeps cash events win a Global Champion Pack. That includes an exclusive Global Poker T-shirt, hat and the new Eagle Cup trophy.
How does Global Poker work?
Global Poker is a social gaming poker site that offers some action to American and Canadian players. The site features two forms of currency, sweeps cash (SC) and gold coins (GC).
Gold coins are the site’s play money option. By signing up, players automatically earn 5,000 gold coins for free to test their tournament or cash game skills. Gold coins cannot be cashed out but can be used in all Eagle Cup gold coin tournaments.
However, players who purchase more gold coins will receive sweeps cash. This currency can be used in various sweeps cash events. Sweeps cash is redeemable for real cash prizes.
Signing up, withdrawal and purchasing gold coins and sweeps cash is easy.
Here are some nice tournaments in the ‘high’ category
The Eagle Cup offers low, medium and high buy-in events daily that include no limit hold’em, fixed limit hold’em, and pot limit Omaha. Buy-ins range from SC$3 to SC$218.
Global will also offer daily satellites that run for as little as SC$0.55. Here are some of the highlighted “$weeps Sash” events:
Those looking for some fun gold coin events also have plenty to choose from. Here’s a look at a few of those.
