Global Poker Player Scores Big Win In Sunday Scrimmage

Thomas 'tdubz224' Walters Earns $21,617 For The Victory


Global Poker recently ran their Sunday Scrimmage with double their normal guarantee, awarding players with SC$100,000 instead of the usual SC$50,000.

In the end, the title and the massive $21,617 first-place prize went to Thomas Walters, who plays on the site under the name ‘tdubz224’.

Walters, a California online poker player, topped a field of 578 players, which smashed the guarantee to produce a prize pool of SC$115,600. This was Walters’ third final-table appearance at the Sunday Scrimmage, and his first win.

“Winning this event really has been a dream come true,” said Walters. “I have played poker my whole life and have tried to get more serious at it over the past year. The cash prize could not have come at a better time. I just got married and bought a house in the past six months so this is really helpful for my wife and I. This win has really motivated and invigorated me to keep working harder and longer at my game and to leave nothing on the table. I would love to see just how far my poker journey can go.”

If you’re ready to start winning, don’t wait, sign up for Global Poker today and get started playing.

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, Global Poker has cemented itself among 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. 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 as real cash prizes.
