Play in and Help Name Global Poker's First-Ever Sunday Major Feb. 25
Global Poker found such great success with their SC$218 buy-in events in the latest Grizzly Games series, that they have decided to bring the event to Global Poker players on a weekly basis. The new Sunday Major kicks off this Sunday at 5:30 p.m. EST offering up a SC$30,000 guaranteed prize pool.
Satellites for the first-ever weekly SC$218 buy-in event are running now at Global Poker, where players can qualify for as little as SC$1.10. Most of the Round 1 qualifiers ring in at the $3.21 price tag with the winners getting a seat into the $33 Sunday Major Mega Satellite on Sunday at 4:20 p.m. EST.
The Mega Satellite features a Turbo Six-max format and guarantees ten SC$218 seats for the Sunday Major. Players who choose to do so can buy in directly for $33 for a shot at a seat in the Major at a heavily discounted price.
The SC$110 buy-in Sunday Teaser is another great way to warm up for the Sunday Major. Another deep-structured event, the Teaser kicks off at 3 p.m. EST and boasts a SC$10,000 guarantee.
Don’t Like the Name?
If you have been playing on Global Poker for any significant length of time, you know by now they like their creative event names and promotions. That’s why they can’t stand the boring name “Sunday Major” for their new weekly flagship event.
In typical Global Poker fashion, they are turning to the players to get involved and participate in naming the event via a competition on their Facebook Page that will be up in time for the weekend. All you have to do is Like their page, and then comment on the post with your suggestion for a name for the biggest weekly event ever at Global Poker. And be sure to include your Global Poker Username in your reply and submit by midnight EST on Sunday, Feb. 25.
The top two suggestions will earn a free ticket for a SC$218 Sunday Major, or whatever it's called by that time, and three more players will receive a SC$33 Mega satellite entry. That means more than SC$500 worth of value going out to players just for getting their creative juices flowing.
