Global Poker's Eagle Cup Still Beating Huge Guarantees

$1.25 Million Guaranteed Tournament Series Showing No Signs Of Slowing Down


Despite nearly three weeks of action, the Eagle Cup, a $1.25 million guaranteed tournament series from Global Poker, is showing no signs of slowing down. In fact, every single tournament last week exceeded the guarantee, proving that players keep flocking to Global Poker in droves.

The world’s fastest-growing poker room is now gearing up for the final week of the Eagle Cup, which will feature some of the biggest events on the tournament schedule. Beginning this Sunday, Oct. 22, at 4:15 pm ET, you can take part in the final SC$15,000 guarantee tournament.

The action gets even bigger next week, with an additional SC$10,000 put on the line to increase the overall guarantee to SC$25,000! The Eagle Cup Monster Freeroll is also set to take place that Sunday, Oct. 29, with an additional SC$10,000 tournament just for ring game players who saw 2,000 or more flops over the course of the Eagle Cup series.

The leaderboard is also getting tight, with $15,000 in added cash prizes on the line, as well as an opportunity to represent Global Poker in a live poker tournament. Right now, ‘JJlawlaysAA’ from Georgia is leading the way, but there are many players nipping at his heels.

All players who won a tournament during the Eagle Cup will be given a Global Poker Champions Pack which includes a hat, t-shirt and a massive trophy engraved with the winner’s name and event. Players can then use their Champions Pack to enter themselves in the Hometown Heroes promotion to earn extra @weeps cash!

Join the action in the fastest-growing poker room in the world with Global Poker.

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.
