Poker players across the country can release their inner beast on Global Poker next month. Grizzly Games II will get underway on Feb. 3 and run through Feb. 24.
This year’s series features numerous events with 158 Grizzly Games trophies on the line. Altogether, there are more than $850,000 in Sweeps Cash (SC) and 150 million Gold Coins in guaranteed prize pools.
Grizzly Games II has tournaments for everyone
Global Poker will kick off the events in style with an SC$5,000 freeroll at 2 p.m. on Feb. 3. There are no requirements to get in on the action; simply sign up and play. Then, the following day, the series will begin offering four events on the weekdays and seven events on each day of the weekend.
The Grizzly Games II offers tournaments for every bankroll, with tournaments starting at SC$3.30 and ranging up to SC$110. Each tourney promises huge guarantees, which start at SC$3,000.
Higher rollers can look forward to the Sunday SC$218 tournaments. These events carry massive guarantees of SC$50,000 and feature a deep-stack format.
On Feb. 24, players will have an opportunity to play in three different deep stack main events that offer an opportunity for a huge payday: Low (SC$22, SC$15,000 guaranteed), Medium (SC$110, SC$40,000 guaranteed), and High (SC$218, SC$100,000 guaranteed).
For players looking for something besides no-limit hold’em, there are also pot-limit Omaha and fixed-limit hold’em tournaments to play. For those on a budget, there will also be numerous Gold Coin tournaments throughout the series.
Grizzly Games winners will get more than just cash
Beyond the big guarantees, Global Poker is also adding some extra value to the Grizzly Games events. All winners of the Gold Coin and $weeps (Sweeps) Cash events will receive a Champions Pack.
This package will include a Global Poker T-shirt and cap. Most notably, the Champions Pack will yield a personalized trophy to commemorate the event they won.
Champions also qualify to participate in the site’s “Hometown Heroes” promotion. They can earn extra Sweeps Cash by sharing pictures of themselves in their gear in various places. Prizes for this promotion range from SC$20 to SC$1,000.
Beyond that, Grizzly Games II winners and runners-up also earn free entry into the Tournament of Champions (TOC). This tournament comes with an SC$10,000 guarantee and an SC$5,000 top prize to the winner. In turn, the TOC champion will win the chance to represent Global Poker in a major live poker tournament of his or her choice.
Global Poker is the only major poker site open across the US
Global Poker is the fastest-growing online poker room in the US. Through its unique sweepstakes model, players purchase virtual chips called Gold Coins, which accumulate but aren’t redeemable for real money.
However, each purchase of Gold Coins yields sweepstakes prizes called Sweeps Cash. This virtual currency can be cashed out as real prizes.
At this point, the company’s model is allowing it to survive legal questions in virtually every state. As a result, many players are getting in on the action.
Global Poker has received some buzz in recent months for its unique system, its play on the felt, and its big tournament series. The site has also enjoyed an increase in players streaming their play online through platforms like Twitch.
New players to Global Poker can sign up through the link above and receive 5,000 Gold Coins absolutely free. There are always dozens of tables running on both the Gold Coins and the Sweeps Cash sides of the site.
Grizzly Games II represents a massive opportunity for players who want to try out this new form of poker. There is no better time than the present to make Global Poker a fun part of your life.
