The first leg of the Global Poker Championships will begin this October with The Eagle Cup, an online tournament series with 150 scheduled tournaments in total that boasts more than $1.25 million in cumulated guarantees.
The series kicks off officially on Oct. 2 and runs until Oct. 30, with a host of events to take place, primarily divided into four categories of low, medium and high-stakes $weeps Cash tournaments (1 $weeps Cash = $1 Dollar), as well as Gold Coin tournaments.
The series features a number of poker variants on the schedule, including the following ones – Omaha in addition to hold’em, as well as four-max, six-max, deep stack, turbo, rebuy, big ante, limit and pot-limit.
Players who successfully participate in the Eagle Cup event not only get awarded the first-place prize and a new avatar, but the popular online site will also mail them a Global Poker Champions Pack, which includes a personalized trophy and a Global Poker T-shirt and hat (which can be used in the Hometown Heroes promotion for free $weeps).
There’s also an extra $15,000 in added value prizes to be won on The Eagle Cup leader board, including the chance to be the very first player to represent Global Poker in a live event of your selection. Whether you choose to go to Las Vegas, or Atlantic City, or somewhere in between, Global Poker will make sure the payments for the entry fees, travel and hotel arrangements are taken care of as you battle it out on the real felt.
To celebrate the biggest tournament series in Global Poker history, players can take part in a special SC $10,000 free roll on Oct. 1. The tournament is completely FREE, and is open to anyone with a Global Poker account.
