There were some big prizes up for grabs last weekend on Global Poker, with both the Sunday Teaser and Sunday Scrimmage on the tournament schedule.

The SC$110 buy-in Teaser was won by none other than Richard “QuietLion” Brodie, who picked up $5,100 from the SC$25,000 guaranteed prize pool, topping a field of 233 entrants. Brodie, a former programmer for Microsoft, also won the Eagle Cup Tournament of Champions in November.

Over in the SC$218 buy-in Scrimmage, New York player LottoTicks1357911 banked $10,200 by defeating a field of 228 in the SC$50,000 guaranteed event.

Of course, there are more big events that Global Poker has in store for their players. Starting with the Kurt Busch Signature Series.

Global Poker is celebrating their partnership with Chip Ganassi Racing’s no. 1 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, which is driven by 2004 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Champion Kurt Busch.

The upcoming schedule calls for a SC$11 buy-in SC$2,500 guaranteed turbo event on Friday, June 28 at 2 pm ET. The weekend continues with a SC$11 buy-in turbo with SC$3,000 guaranteed on Saturday, June 29 at 2 pm ET. On Sunday, June 30, there are two events. The first is a SC$22 buy-in event with SC$3,000, and the second is a Gold Coin tournament with a 22,000 buy-in, and 2 million guaranteed. Both tournaments begin at 2 pm ET.

Global Poker is kicking in some extras, such as limited-edition prizes, and extra $weeps cash for anyone finishing in the top nine. Additionally, Global Poker is also giving away actual pieces of motorsports history, pieces of the actual no. 1 Chevrolet Camaro driven by Busch himself.

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.
