Global Poker Gearing Up For Huge Eagle Cup Climax

Huge Sunday Scheduled With More Than SC$60,000 In Guarantees!


After 28 days of action and more than 150 champions crowned, the Eagle Cup as part of the Global Poker Championships has cemented itself as one of the premier online poker tournament series on the calendar.

The ambitious SC$1.25 million series guarantee has already been nearly doubled, and the best is still yet to come this Sunday – with more than SC$60,000 in guarantees, nine trophies and over 3 million Gold Coins up for grabs. The marquee event on the schedule is the SC$25,000 main event, which starts at 4:15 pm EDT.

Ring game players will also show off on the tournament felt with the SC$10,000 Monster Challenge Freeroll, which is open to anyone who played more than 2,000 ring game hands during the Eagle Cup. Players can still qualify this week until 4:30 pm EDT on Sunday.

Right now, ‘Penta’ from Louisville, Kentucky is atop the Eagle Cup leaderboard, which will award $15,000 in added value to the best players of the series. ‘Penta’ has managed to win an astonishing four tournaments during the Eagle Cup and has the inside track to becoming the first player to ever represent Global Poker in a live tournament. Other players with a good shot at the top spot include ‘Poker12" from Indiana and ’JjlalwaysAA’ from Georgia.

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.
