Global Poker Players Find Success in Vegas and Online

The tradition of Global Poker players who parlayed online championships into success in live tournament action continued as Kevin BUYMEDINNER Pahl and two of his buddies cashed in the WSOP $1,000 NLHE Tag Team event, finishing in 45th place out of a 1,032-team field and winning $3,495.

Some of you may recall that Pahl was the leaderboard winner of the Rattlesnake Open at the Global Poker Championships. He earned the right to represent the US-friendly poker room at a live tournament of his choosing, with Global Poker picking up the tab courtesy of a $5K prize package.

That makes three Global Poker leaderboard winners in a row who cashed on the live poker tournament stage while wearing GP attire. That's quite an accomplishment, and may result in more US online poker players checking out the action at Global Poker.



Credit Card Deposits Accepted At Global Poker

Another reason to take a look and perhaps make a deposit at GP is that the site has added additional payment processing options. Credit card deposits via Visa and Mastercard are now being accepted at Global Poker, as are American Express and Discover Card.

Should Global Poker player Sara "Sabjo182" Palmer need to make a deposit at GP, she certainly has the funds to do so after finishing in 11th place in the WSOP $1,000 Ladies Championship Event. Her just miss of a final table finish resulted in a $6,799 payday. You can look for Sara at the GP tables and congratulate her on making a deep run in the tournament.

The WSOP may be the talk of the town in live poker circles at the moment, but don't tell that to Louis "beijinghouse" Helm, another Global Poker player who did good in Vegas. Helm sauntered over to the Golden Nugget to compete in the Grand Poker Series and managed to top the field in a $110 nightly event to take home first place prize money of $1,875.



Facebook Giveaway Pays Off Big Time

While WSOP action is in full swing, the online action at Global Poker saw another success story play out. Marty "Thakid5" Martin entered a competition on Global Poker's Facebook page and won a ticket to the SC$218 Sunday Scrimmage that featured a humongous guaranteed prize pool of SC$50,000.

Martin finished runner-up and added SC$7,750 to his bankroll. Not bad considering his investment was zero. Check out GP's Facebook page for similar contests that can put you in a seat at a huge online poker tournament for free!
