Global Poker Pay Out Over $2,000,000 in Record Breaking Grizzly Games

The Grizzly Games, Global Poker's second installment of their Global Poker Championships have exceeded all expectations with the SC$1,500,000 guaranteed series of tournaments eventually paying out over SC$2,000,000 in real cash prizes while crowning some 200 Grizzly Games Champions.

The Grizzly Games wrapped up last Sunday (11th February), bowing out on a high after the SC$218 buy-in Main Event (High) absolutely SMASHED the SC$50,000 guarantee, with the 415 entries creating a whopping SC$82,500 prize-pool. The Main Event (High) was taken down by "smacchamp2015" from Maryland who earned himself a tidy SC$15,690 payday after defeating player "Oghab" heads-up. Well ahead in chips smacchamp2015 called an all-in from his opponent holding {k-Spades}{10-Clubs}. Oghab could only muster {J-Spades}{8-Clubs} and with the board not obliging the underdog smacchamp2015 was crowned the Champion.

As with the other 200 Grizzly Games tourney champs smacchamp2015 will also receive a personalised Grizzly Games trophy as well as a Champions Pack including Global Poker t-shirts and hats.

The overall winner this time around was "MommyGingery" who managed to win two events on the way to the top of the leaderboard.
