How Global Poker Heads-Up SnGs Could Mean More Money In Your Pocket

One of the most crucial moments in a poker tournament is the heads-up battle at the end. In that spirit, Global Poker has unveiled a new game variant – Heads-Up Sit N’ Gos, or heads-up SnGs.

The update comes due to the fact that Global Poker has been receiving multiple requests for heads-up poker from its player pool. Heads-up poker exists in a sort of limbo for many tournament players.

On the one hand, tournament players often spend the least amount of time practicing their heads-up poker play. Ironically, however, heads-up play can often generate positive expected value with regard to pay jumps at the end of the tournament. 

So, Global Poker’s addition of heads-up poker play is a welcome addition. It will allow players to develop an often overlooked part of their game.

How to play Global Poker’s Heads-up SnGs

Heads-up SnGs are the purest form of 1-on-1 battles for poker players. Each player begins with the same amount of chips, and play proceeds like a normal tournament.

Blinds increase every few minutes, and the game continues until one player has all the chips in play. Unsurprisingly, the payouts are for the victors only.

So, Global Poker’s Heads-Up Sit N’ Gos afford players the option to learn how to play mano e mano from the comfort of their living rooms. As a result, players can develop the skills to make that big pay day jump and take down the hardware.

Find these new tournaments by visiting Global Poker’s Sit-n-Go tab. A quick search should display all the available game options.

Players can choose from a wide variety of buy-in options. Heads-up battles with buy-ins as high as SC$53.50 are available.

For those who might still feel a bit nervous, Global Poker is also offering heads-up SnGs for Gold Coins players. This second currency costs nothing, but will allow players to test their games in a safe environment. 

Eat a hoagie with me

For the rest of July, I will be testing my own skills in the heads-up arena. Every Wednesday night, I will be streaming heads up battles on Global Poker through my Twitch stream.

Tune in to watch and learn how the site works. Feel free to ask any questions in chat about the site and games.

As a bonus, I will be giving away free $weeps Cash prizes to followers of the channel that are valid for play on Global Poker’s sister site, Chumba Casino.

Or, if you are brazen enough, you can challenge “ EataHoagie “ to an online heads-up match. Of course, I will stream your eventual defeat, too. See you then!

How Global Poker Grand Slam Could Be Your Ticket To The All-Star Game

Baseball is America’s pastime. Global Poker is one of the most widely available online poker sites in the US. So, it makes sense that Global Poker is sending players on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the MLB All-Star Game in the Global Poker Grand Slam Tournament.

The Grand Slam Tournament is a feeder series that will put you in the running for a terrific prize package. The series is winding down, but there is still a full weekend of great opportunities ahead of us.

How to participate in the Global Poker Grand Slam Tournament

Here’s how it works.

Players can compete in one of the tournaments specific to the promotion. For every tournament they enter, Global Poker will award an entry into the Tournament Series draw.

This draw will award 3 prize packages to the 2019 MLB All-Star Game weekend. Each package contains the following:

  • Tickets to the four main events at Progressive Field in Cleveland
    • All-Star Celebrity Softball Game – July 7
    • All-Star Futures Game (minor league players) – July 7
    • Home Run Derby – July 8
    • All-Star Game – July 9
  • Three nights’ accommodation for the nights of July 7 – 9
    • Check-in on July 7
    • Check-out on July 10

Bear in mind, there are numerous other attractions during All-Star weekend. The package will also give winners the ability to take part in concerts, commemorative events, and the interactive experience known as Play Ball Park.

As is often the case with Global Poker, there are opportunities to play using either one of their currencies. There are tournaments for both Gold Coins and $weeps Cash.

At present, there are 11 tournaments remaining to play – 6 for $weeps Cash and 5 for Gold Coins. Each tournament will award an entry to the draw to each participant.

Of course, these tournaments are still bona fide tournaments, too. In fact, each one carries a very tasty guarantee, too.

Here’s the schedule for the remaining tournaments:

$weeps Cash

TournamentDateTime (All times Eastern)Buy-in
Grand Slam 11: NLHE $2,500 Guaranteed [2x-Chance, Turbo, 6-Max]June 209:30 PMSC$5.50

Grand Slam 14: NLHE GC 1,500,000 Guaranteed [1R1A, Turbo]June 239:30 PMGC11,000

Other ways to qualify for the Tournament Series draw

There is also another way to throw one’s hat in the ring for one of the All-Star Game packages. In fact, players just have to play in ring games to earn an entry into the Tournament Series draw.

Players must only play 1,500 hands before the end of the promotion on July 23. Hands in both currencies qualify.

So, if it wasn’t clear before, it is possible to win an entry into the prize drawing for Gold Coins only. Even if a player has lost all their $weeps Cash at one time or another, they can still play for a chance to see the best in Major League Baseball.

In short, for baseball fans, Global Poker is offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It’s not too late to qualify, so don’t miss out this weekend!

Global Poker Rattlesnake Open II Featured A Texas Two-Step

Global Poker recently crowned the winner of its Global Poker Rattlesnake Open II Tournament of Champions. Texas native Fernando Guerra won the tournament in grand style during the first week of June.

Guerra, who goes by the hilarious online moniker “KanyeTrump2020,” took home the grand prize from the tournament series. Namely, Guerra received $5000 that he may use to represent Global Poker in a live tournament of his choice.

Guerra punched his ticket to the Tournament of Champions by winning the very last tournament of the series. He took home the trophy for the $C$4,500 Guaranteed, then set his sights on the big dance.

“It was a fun tournament,” Guerra said, in a press release. “I’ve been playing a lot of tournaments, trying to win one of those trophies, or at least place in the top two. I feel super blessed and lucky!”

He went on to say that things just went his way in the Tournament of Champions.

“I was on fire the whole tournament. I threw in some skill, but you can’t win without luck too.”

Whatever mixture of luck and skill Guerra used, it worked. Guerra plowed through the ToC field in about four hours.

He has not identified which tournament he will use to redeem the prize. However, one would think that Guerra would be a heavy favorite to go deep in that contest, too.

Global Poker one of few options in Texas

The win is a bright spot for Texas poker players. The traditional home of hold’em has surprisingly few stories of homegrown poker success in recent years.

For one thing, there are precious few opportunities for online poker players in the Lone Star State. Guerra spoke highly of Global Poker as one of the few places he can play.

“I just love Global Poker,” he said. “It’s the only place I play right now.”

Texas simply is not friendly to gambling, online or otherwise. Global Poker is about the only safe option instate; the rest are offshore sites that operate in the grey market.

To illustrate, consider the fact that numerous private poker clubs have popped up in Texas. These clubs attempt to contort their business practices in order to stay within the narrow exceptions given in Texas state gambling law.

So far, the Texas attorney general has declined any sort of action on the state level. However, that hasn’t stopped local law enforcement from cracking down.

Just last month, officers shut down two Houston clubs and charged the room owners with money laundering and organized crime – both felonies. So, it’s no surprise that Guerra has stuck to Global Poker.

At this point, it’s really the only safe bet in the great state of Texas.

Global Poker. Caribbean Getaway. Easy To Win. What Else Do You Need?

When money’s tight, vacations can be an unaffordable luxury. Thankfully, Global Poker‘s Ship It series is offering US players a chance at a Caribbean cruise for just $1 in Sweeps Cash (SC).

In its new Ship It series, Global Poker is offering players a chance to win a $4,000 cruise package. Winners will set sail on Royal Caribbean’s Liberty of the Seas for a seven-night bonanza of relaxation.

How to win a Ship It package

Tournaments that award Ship It packages will vary in terms of buy-in and number of packages awarded. However, it is possible to win a package with just SC$1.

Players will be able to qualify for this package beginning March 25. The qualifying rounds will run until April 21.

In addition, Global Poker will host a group of pop-up freerolls on March 23. At random times that day, a notification about a Caribbean Poker Cruise Pop-Up Freeroll will pop up in the lobby. Winners of these tournaments will punch their tickets without any purchase whatsoever.

What’s in the Ship It package?

Each winner will receive a prize package during this event that will have tons of goodies to occupy them. Global Poker has taken care of all the arrangements to make this trip a once-in-a-lifetime vacation.

Each Ship It package includes:

  • A seven-night stay in an ocean-view cabin (with balcony) 
  • Food, beverages and entertainment for two, which includes a cocktail party to welcome onboard players 
  • $500 for travel expenses
  • $490 for onboard tournament buy-ins
  • Poker coaching sessions
  • Poker seminar

Additionally, there are other great amenities on the Liberty of the Seas for poker and non-poker players alike. The cruise offers rock climbing, ice skating, a wave pool and waterslides to get the blood pumping.

Global Poker has teamed up with Card Player Cruises to bring this opportunity to its players. The cruise will depart from Galveston, Texas, on Sunday, May 5, and return Sunday, May 12.

The ship will travel to various destinations throughout the Caribbean Sea. Ports of call include:

  • Cozumel, Mexico
  • George Town, Grand Cayman
  • Kingston, Jamaica

Between those destinations, there will be some terrific on-board poker action. Global Poker will host numerous ring games and tournaments for its attendees, along with events specific to the poker players on the ship.

There are also numerous nighttime onboard activities, from cocktail hours to pool parties. The ship also features performances of Broadway classics, like Cats, Grease and Mamma Mia!

Finally, there are three excellent restaurants from which to choose each meal selection. Chops Grille serves steaks, Giovanni’s Table has excellent Italian fare, and Johnny Rockets is the place to get a burger. There is also a wine bar onboard.

So, there’s really no reason to miss out on the action. With just a bit of rungood, anyone could find themselves sailing the open seas.

Grizzly Games II Is A Great Reason To Try Global Poker

Global Poker will start its February with a roar. The poker site is offering hundreds of thousands in guarantees for its Grizzly Games II tournament series.

Grizzly Games II will begin its run on Feb. 3. The festivities debut with a $5,000 freeroll in Sweeps Cash (SC) that any player, $weeps (Sweeps) Cash or not, may enter.

Beginning the next day, Global Poker will run four events each day of the week and seven on weekend days. Altogether, players will compete for 158 Grizzly Games trophies and SC$850,000 in real-money guarantees.

The series will culminate with a three-tiered main event on Feb. 24. Players can choose from a Low, Middle or High event, which comes with buy-ins of SC$22, SC$110 and SC$218, respectively.

Notably, the High event will carry a guaranteed prize pool of SC$40,000. All events in Grizzly Games II will guarantee at least SC$3,000 up for grabs.

Grizzly Games II perks go beyond mere cash prizes

Most tournament prizes stop after the cash gets awarded. Players compete in the events, win the associated prizes, and that’s it.

Thankfully, Global Poker wants to take care of its competitors in Grizzly Games II. So there will be a whole host of perks, benefits and swag for players who come out on top in an event.

Champions Pack

The first of these benefits is the Grizzly Games Champions Pack. All players who win an event at Grizzly Games II will receive one of these packages.

Inside, they will find an exclusive, personalized trophy commemorating their win. The pack also comes with a Global Poker T-shirt and hat.

Hometown Heroes

Event winners will also gain the ability to participate in Global Poker’s Hometown Heroes promotion. In this promo, players can receive money just for wearing Global Poker gear around town and posting selfies on social media.

Players must complete five tasks assigned by Global Poker. These tasks typically involve wearing Global Poker gear in front of landmarks or at the players’ local cardrooms.

Each task carries a Sweeps Cash prize that the player will win upon completion. Prizes range from SC$20 to SC$1,000.

Tournament of Champions

Finally, players who win or come in second in a Sweeps Cash event will receive tickets to Global Poker’s Tournament of Champions (TOC). The TOC is an exclusive tournament open only to those two groups of people.

However, Global Poker is adding SC$10,000 to the TOC’s prize pool. Each final tablist at the TOC will receive no less than SC$250 in cash.

Most notably, the winner of the event will receive the grand prize. Global Poker will award the TOC champion an SC$5,000 ticket to a live event of his or her choice.

So, at least two players will enter the TOC from an SC$3.30 tournament. There is a possibility that even that tiny buy-in could turn into thousands in cash and tournament tickets.

A quick reminder about the way Global Poker works

Global Poker operates using a sweepstakes model. Players purchase Gold Coins from the site, which bears no monetary value. However, at the time of the sale, Global Poker also awards Sweeps Cash to players equal to the amount of their purchase.

This second currency, Sweeps Cash, is usable for real-money transactions. The model may sound a bit convoluted, but its structure is what allows Global Poker to exist in virtually every US state.

If you’re interested, head on over to Global Poker and get started. New players will receive 5,000 Gold Coins to seed their endeavor.

Remember: The first tournament in Grizzly Games II is a freeroll, and open to everyone. There’s no reason not to check out Global Poker in February.

Eagle Cup Returns To Global Poker In October With SC$750,000 Up For Grabs

Global Poker Eagle Cup

Online poker fans in the U.S. have quite a bit to look forward to as the Global Poker Championships Eagle Cup series returns in October for the second straight year.

The Cup is the inaugural leg of the GPCs, featuring 135 championship events and a guaranteed $750,000 in $weeps Cash prizes. GlobalPoker.com is the fastest growing poker site for American players. For those new to the site, Global Poker offers opportunities at real-money cash and prizes.

Through its sweepstakes model, players use virtual chips (Gold Coins), which they accumulate but cannot redeem for real money. However, when purchasing Gold Coins, players receive sweepstakes prizes called $weeps Cash. This virtual currency can be used for $weeps Cash tournaments and ring games, and can also be won in freerolls.

As a player wins, $weeps Cash can be cashed out as real prizes using Global Poker’s unique sweepstakes model, and many players are getting in on the action. The Eagle Cup offers just one more chance for players to win some real cash in a major online tournament series environment.

Series-opening freeroll

The tournament series kicks off with an Opening Freeroll on Sept. 30 with $5,000 in prizes up for grabs. The first official championship event is set for Oct. 1 and continues for three weeks.

The Global Poker Eagle Cup offers two concurrent schedules, tournaments using Gold Coins and $weeps Cash tournaments with low, medium, and high buy-ins for every bankroll. A highlight is the SC$100,000 guarantee Main Event on Oct. 21.

Prizes will be awarded not only for $weeps events, but also for Gold Coin events. Winners will snag a Champions Pack filled with Global Poker merchandise and gear. Champions also win Eagle Cup Champion trophies engraved with the winner’s name.

The site is also once again offering one player a chance to represent Global Poker at a live tournament. This year, any player finishing first or second in a GPC event receives an invitation to play in the Tournament of Champions. The TOC winner earns a $5,000 package to head off and represent Global Poker in a major live tournament. Additionally, there is $10,000 of added prizes for the TOC.

The GPCs are right around the corner. Sign up for Global Poker and join in on the fun.

Rapido Series Set For $20K GTD Main Event Finale On Global Poker

Global Poker Rapido

Online poker site Global Poker is careening towards the epic conclusion of its first-ever Rapido Series.

The turbo-only Rapido Series was a first for the game-changing Global Poker with over 70 different events and a variety of different buy-in levels.

Global Poker is a social poker site that offers safe and secure cash outs for players in the USA.

The site employs a sweepstakes model, similar to the promotions what you might find at McDonalds or Pepsi, to provide real-money winnings.

Global Poker avoids the deposit structure altogether by offering Gold Coins, which have no cash value. Players do receive a bonus of $weeps Cash for buying Cold Coins, however, and $weeps Cash CAN be converted to real money (it’s 1:1 with USD) or used for tournament buy-ins.

It’s a system that is finally allowing US-based poker players to get back in on the action.

Rapido Poker Series to offer SC$20,000-GTD main event

The Rapido Poker Series began on June 18 with over 70 different events spread across two weeks with buy-ins ranging from SC$11 all the way up to SC$110. The series is mostly No-Limit Hold’em with some PLO sprinkled into the mix. Global Poker also added Crazy Pineapple to the final day of the series, which is a welcome surprise.

This last weekend of the Rapido Poker Series offers the heaviest action yet. The SC$110 buy-in Main Event on July 1 represents one of the biggest tournaments ever offered on Global Poker with an immense SC$20,000 guaranteed prize pool.

Global Poker has also increased the guarantees for its regularly-scheduled daily hyper-turbo tournaments. Lunch Money is now up to SC$400 while Eyes Wide Shut is up to SC$500. All the daily hyper turbos have a buy-in of SC$5.35.

Free-to-play players can take also take advantage of some enormous Gold Coin events with several GC33,000 buy-in tournaments on the weekend that offer a GC3,000,000 guarantee.

Here’s a complete look at all of the events for the final weekend of the Rapido Series on Global Poker:

How to play on Global Poker

Because Global Poker eschews the traditional deposit structure there are plenty of questions about how to get money on the site.

To put it simply: buy Gold Coins (which is the play money on the site) and you will be awarded the equivalent to your purchase in $weeps Cash.

For example, lets say you buy 30,000 Gold Coins for $100 USD. You will then be awarded a bonus $100 in $weeps Cash. $weeps Cash can be used for everything you’d normally use cash for on a poker site including tournaments and cash.

You can cash in your $weeps Cash at any point for USD using a payment processor although there is a SC$50 minimum for cash outs. In addition, your account must be verified, which requires a form of ID and proof of address.

It’s somewhat similar to the system that McDonalds uses in its famous Monopoly promotion where you buy food at the restaurant but also get a chance at winning bonus prizes. The difference is that $weeps Cash is guaranteed.

Buying Gold Coins isn’t the only way to acquire $weeps Cash, however. The site runs a number of promotions where you can win free $weeps Cash in Facebook contests or even a mail-in promotion.

Global Poker’s action-packed roster of games

Global Poker is different than traditional poker sites in more ways than one.

The site emphasis 4-Max and 6-Max tables, which cranks up the action and makes tournaments significantly faster.

Most of the Rapido Series events have clocked in at under two hours making them perfect for recreational players.

The site also includes several variants that you won’t find on many other sites including Big Ante, which includes a massive ante, and Ante Up where the blinds remain the same but the antes get bigger with every level.

As you would expect the majority of games on Global Poker are No-Limit Hold’em but the site also offers Pot-Limit Omaha and Crazy Pineapple, which is very unusual for a mid-size site.

You can register for Global Poker via Facebook and it only takes a few minutes to get playing. That’s more than enough to get in on the Rapido Series, which concludes this weekend.
