Global Poker Madness Offers SC$200,000 Guaranteed Main Event on April 1
It’s official: Global Poker is going mad in March, and they’re celebrating by launching a Global Poker Madness competition with a SC$540 Main Event that boasts a SC$200,000 guarantee.
The April 1st event is no April Fool’s joke — they’re actually putting up a guarantee that is not one, not two, not three, but FOUR times larger than any tournament Global Poker has offered. Ever.
The buy-in for the tournament they are calling “The Nuts” is a bit higher than normal for the site, but fear not. There will be plenty of ways to satellite in on the cheap, starting at just SC$1.50.
Here's How it Works
|Step||Buy-in||Name||What you can win|
|Stage 1||SC$1.50||The Mild Satellites||A ticket for Stage 2 will be awarded for every SC$11 in the prize pool|
|Stage 2||SC$11||The Moderate Satellites||A ticket for Stage 3 will be awarded for every SC$77 in the prize pool|
|Stage 3||SC$77||The Extreme Satellites||A ticket for the Main Event will be awarded for every SC$540 in the prize pool.|
Mild and Moderate Satellites will kick off Sunday, March 4 and Extreme Satellites will run weekly on Saturdays at 4:20 p.m. EST starting March 10. These ones guarantee ten seats, with the final version on March 31 to award at least 20 seats into the $540 Main Event.
Global Poker is kicking off all this madness with a giveaway in the form of the Madness: $2,500 Opening Freeroll on March 4 at 2:05 p.m. EST. Registration is open now, so don’t miss out a free chance to get your hands on some Global Poker Madness tournament tickets.
The top 335 finishers will receive a prize according to the following payout structure:
- 1st: Madness Main Event Entry valued at SC$540
- 2nd-9th: Madness Extreme Rd 3 Sat Entry valued at SC$77
- 10th-99th: Madness Moderate Rd 2 Sat Entry valued at SC$11
