Global Poker Presents The PokerNews Cup

Series Runs June 17-30

You may not be in Las Vegas this summer, but that doesn’t mean you have to sit on the sidelines.

This June, poker players from all over will log in to Global Poker to compete in the PokerNews Cup, three weeks of non-stop poker tournament action with massive prize pools up for grabs.

“I am so proud that the PokerNews Cup is becoming a big highlight of the Global Poker tournament calendar,” said Global Poker General Manager David Lyons. “Bringing the two great communities together for some of the best poker of the year, and the chance not just to win prizes but to get your hands on our most exclusive (and heaviest!) trophy. I’ve already put the events in my calendar and bookmarked the streams to ensure I don’t miss a minute of it.”

The series officially kicks off June 17, with two tournaments scheduled per day until the main events on Sunday, June 30. The schedule then wraps up with a week of freeroll qualifiers and the finales.

The no-limit hold’em festival features 14 Gold Coin and 14 Sweeps Coin events, along with a variety of tournament formats including deep stacks, turbos, bounties, progressive bounties, and even mystery bounties!

There is a total of GC 100,000,000 and SC 100,000 guaranteed. Buy-ins range from just GC 11,000 to GC 55,000 and SC 11 to SC 55.

The highlight of the series are the GC 20,000,000 and SC 50,000 main events, which have a super deepstack structure.

As always, Global Poker is juicing the pot with colossal prize packs, including trophies for winners, as well as custom site avatars and series swag.

And new for this series, Global Poker is giving back to the players in a big way with two Freeroll Finales on Sunday, July 7. The top 45 qualifying Sweeps Coin players will compete for SC 100,000, with another 45 players qualifying for the Gold Coin finale and GC 30,000,000.

To earn one of the 45 spots in the finale, you need to win any one of the 14 GC and SC PokerNews Cup events. Additionally, anyone who makes a series final table will be entered into a separate qualifier where the final nine players will advance to their respective finales. And finally, anyone who even competes in any series event will get entry into another qualifier that will award nine more finale spots.

(Additional ways to qualify will be released via the Global Poker Twitch channel.)

There’s Always More At Global Poker

Of course, this is just a tiny fraction of what Global Poker has to offer. The free-to-play, online social poker room has more than one million registered players and is dedicated to its loyal and growing community of players. Their mission is to bring a greater variety of games, a larger range of bigger prize pools, and more tournaments and championships.

Everyday across the United States, Global Poker players enjoy reliable, fun, and rewarding online social poker. Not only is it entirely free to set up an account — and to play — you’ll also find poker rules and hand rankings, as well as poker strategy tips and helpful how-to guides to enhance your poker skills.

You can get more from your play by “unlocking The Vault” with Global Poker’s 30 percent ring game giveback promotion. The Vault, as it is known, is a feature that awards a bonus to ring game players every time they play a qualifying hand.

There are no hoops to jump through. You don’t have to do anything to qualify other than play your favorite games. The site will automatically assign the accrued bonus to your personal online Vault during play.

While ring game players are certainly appreciating The Vault, Global Poker hasn’t forgotten about tournament players and continues to offer some of the best online event series available, including The Eagle Cup, The GOAT, The Grizzly Games, and The Rattlesnake Open, among others.

Play Gold Coin poker games for fun or play Sweeps Coins games for a chance to win. There’s no better place to learn and play poker online. Global Poker is where poker champions are born, and you could be next. ♠
