The 2017 Eagle Cup, which was the ambitious first leg of the Global Poker Championships with SC$1.25 million in guarantees, absolutely crushed all expectations by paying out more than SC$1.5 million to fields totaling over 25,000 entrants.

In fact, every single tournament in the series of more than 150 events beat their guarantee, showing just how much the American poker community has embraced Global Poker, the fastest growing poker room in the world.

The SC$25,000 main event took place on Sunday, and a big field ultimately swelled the prize pool to SC$31,300. In the end, the title went to ‘OptimusCreamCake’ who won a tense flip against runner-up ‘gatton2019’ when his pocket fives held against ASpade SuitKSpade Suit on a board of JClub SuitJSpade Suit10Spade Suit9Heart Suit5Diamond Suit to give him the title and the first-place prize.

The top spot on the leaderboard was claimed by ‘Penta’ who won an incredible five tournaments during the Eagle Cup series. ‘Penta’ will now be the first player to represent Global Poker in a live tournament with a $5,000 tournament package that includes flights and accommodations.

If you missed this year’s Eagle Cup, don’t worry. Global Poker has announced that the second leg of the Global Poker Championships will continue in January of 2018.

If you have been around poker players in the United States lately then you have probably heard about Global Poker. The new kid on the block as far as online poker sites go has taken the poker world by storm. After launching recently, Global Poker has cemented itself in the top 10 sites worldwide for player volume and as the fastest growing site for US players.

It doesn’t matter what your stake or preference is, Global Poker has something for you. Using their virtual currency of $weeps Cash players can enjoy both full ring and shorthanded games from stakes of $0.02-$0.04 right up to $10-$20 in both Texas hold’em and Omaha.

You may be asking yourself “what is $weeps Cash and what is it about them that has made Global Poker the most popular new site among US poker players?” The good news is that it is actually a simple process which more and more players are using to play for real cash prizes.

You can jump onto the Global Poker website and purchase a virtual currency called Gold Coins using your PayPal account. You can then use these Gold Coins to enter into ring games, sit n go’s and tournaments. Gold Coins work much the same as play money chips on other poker sites, meaning that you can accumulate them and use them in different games but they can never be redeemed for real money.

As a way to promote the sale of Gold Coins, players are given bonus sweepstakes prizes by way of $weeps Cash with every Gold Coin purchase that they make. The $weeps Cash can be used to buy into the $weeps Cash tournaments and ring games however any of these that are accumulated or won can be cashed out through PayPal as real cash prizes.
