The Global Poker GOAT series returns Aug. 3-23.

The GOAT is back. Global Poker hosts the site’s annual GOAT series from Aug. 3-23 with Sweeps Coins of 1.1 million guaranteed.

The GOAT includes 204 events and will be the biggest Global Poker tournament series to date. The site has experienced massive growth during the Coronavirus pandemic. Global is now hoping to keep a high bar by continuing the major guarantees.

“It is with great pleasure that we are celebrating the second installment of the GOAT,” Global Poker General Manager David Lyons said. “Both experienced and novice poker players have a chance to take home one of our prestigious new trophies, and with our new and unique progressive bounty tournaments being featured, the action will be hotter than ever.”

Global Poker is a unique sweepstakes poker site allowing players to win real cash. The site is legal for players in the US and Canada (excluding Quebec).

Progressive bounty events are part of the fun

Global Poker recently updated the site’s software and now offers progressive bounty tournaments. GOAT II will be the first series for players to challenge each other in an official progressive bounty championship event. 

Progressive bounties are a unique kind of knockout tournament. When a player eliminates another  opponent, the winning player keeps 50% of the “villain’s” bounty.

Those funds go right in the winning player’s own account. The other half goes to the progressive bank. This now increases the bounty on the winning player’s head and every knockout the bounty grows larger.

What is Global Poker and how does it work?

Global Poker is an online social poker room offering free poker games using a virtual currency called Gold Coins. The site runs on a sweepstakes poker model.

When a player purchases Gold Coins (GC), that player also receives bonus Sweeps Coins (SC).

These can be used in separate tournaments and ring games. Sweeps Coins can also be redeemed for cash prizes and gift cards.

Global Poker gives away free SC and GC everyday on the site. Players can play for free on Global Poker or take a shot in some Sweeps Coin event for a chance at some real winnings.

A look at GOAT II schedule and highlights

The 2020 GOAT series includes nightly GC and SC events with low, medium, and high buy-in tournaments. Sweeps Coin buy-ins range from SC5 to SC218.

Besides the progressive bounties, every Sunday features some nice deep stack tournaments. There are also three championship events set for Aug. 23. Some of the highlights from the series include:

  • 8-M – SC110 NLHE (SC25,000 guarantee), Aug. 9
  • 8-L – SC22 NLHE (SC10,000 guarantee), Aug. 9
  • 8-H – SC218 NLHE (SC55,000 guarantee), Aug. 9
  • 17-M – SC110 NLHE (SC25,000 guarantee), Aug. 16
