Global Poker Go Huge for Upcoming 'Grizzly Games' with $1.5m in Guarantees

Global Poker, the only fully legal online poker site to offer cash prizes throughout the USA and currently the world's fastest growing online poker site are set to launch the next installment of The Global Poker Championships, The 2018 Grizzly Games. The Games begin on Sunday January 14th, and with $1,500,000 in real cash prizes up for grabs, it will be Global Poker's biggest series ever.

Back in October last year Global Poker kicked off The Global Poker Championships with the hugely successful $1.25m GTD Eagle Cup series of tournaments and ended up paying out more than SC ($weeps Cash) $1.5m to over 25,000 entrants. Kicking things up a gear, SC$1,500,000 in guaranteed prize pools is just the starting point for the Grizzly Games, and with some 200 Championship Events scheduled between Sunday January 14th and Sunday February 11th there is every chance that once again those guarantees will be smashed out of the park!

The Grizzly Games consist of 200 tournaments broken down into dozens of events, each offering a low, medium, or high buy-in depending on your $weeps Cash bankroll, as well as a ton of Gold Coin tournaments for players to enjoy. The events are to be played across multiple variants and formats at both Global Poker's Hold'em and Omaha tables. Event types include 4-max, 6-max, deepstack, turbo, rebuy, big ante, 2 x chance, ante up, fixed limit, pot limit, and no limit, with buy-ins ranging from just SC$5.50 up SC$218. Prize pools range from SC$1500 all the way up to SC$50,000 for the Main Event (High) - that's double the size of the Eagle Cup's Main Event.

The Grizzly Games open for business at 3pm (ET) on January 14th with a SC$5,000 "no entry requirements and no gimmicks" freeroll for anyone who has signed up for a Global Poker account. As well as this SC$5,000 freeroll, there will also be a more exclusive SC$10,000 Monster Challenge Freeroll on the last day of the series, with players unlocking their eligibility throughout the Grizzly Games simply by playing hands of poker. To qualify a player has to see 2,000 flops at ANY ring game table between January 15th - February 11th to unlock entry to the tournament.

Champions Packs & Hometown Heroes Back

Once again all winners of either $weeps Cash or Gold Coin tournaments will receive a special 'Champions Pack' which includes an awesome Champions Avatar to proudly display as you are playing as well as a special package delivered to your home address including hats, t-shirts and a few other new goodies.

Another promo which is back for the Grizzly Games is the popular 'Hometown Heroes' initiative in which players are encouraged to share pictures of themselves through Global Poker's social media channels wearing Global Poker clothing in their hometowns. Those participating can receive anything between SC$20 for sharing a photo of you wearing your Global Poker gear in front of the ‘Welcome To’ sign for your home town all the way up to SC$1,000 for winning a tournament wearing Global Poker gear and sharing the winners photo through GP's social media channels.

Leaderboards a plenty

As well as an additional SC$15,000 in added value on the overall Grizzy Games leaderboard, this time out there will also be weekly leaderboard, each with an additional SC$3,000 in giveaways.

Come out on top of the overall leaderboard and you'll get to represent Global Poker at a live tournament with GP covering up to $3,500 in tournament buy-ins as well as contributing $1,500 towards flights and accommodation.
