Final Week of Global Poker's Eagle Cup Offers Extra Value for Players
With one week to go in the series, the $1,250,000 guaranteed Global Poker Eagle Cup is still going strong. The third week kept pace with the first two, with all events once again exceeding their posted guaranteed prize pools. Highlights for the exciting final week of the series include the Main Event, the Monster Freeroll, plus continued promotions offering even more value.
This Sunday’s Eagle Cup Main Event is similar to the previous SC$15,000 guaranteed Sunday events of the series, but Global Poker is upping the stakes. The Main Event boasts a SC$25,000 guarantee for the same $110 buy-in and it kicks off at 4:15 ET.
If that buy-in is a bit steep for your budget, there are two smaller versions of the Main Event at 3:15 and 3:45 p.m. ET — GPC Eagle 38-L: MAIN EVENT NLHE $7,500 Guaranteed [2R1A] and GPC Eagle 38-M: MAIN EVENT NLHE $10,000 Guaranteed [2R1A] for buy-ins of SC$11 and SC$22, respectively.
