Many online players like to take shots in live events around this time of year, and Global Poker’s players across the country are no exception. Several Global Poker regulars decided to visit Las Vegas recently to hop into some events both in the prestigious World Series of Poker and in other series in town, while others stayed away from the sweltering Vegas heat to fire GP events from the comfort of their homes.

From Global Poker to Vegas Success

Kevin "BUYMEDINNER" Pahl was Vegas-bound armed with a $5,000 travel and buy-in package that he won for shipping the Rattlesnake Open Leaderboard. The pressure was on for Pahl, but he followed right in the footsteps of his two leaderboard-winner predecessors who both cashed in the live events they played with their prize packages.

Pahl played WSOP Event #55: $1,000 No Limit Hold’em Tag Team with a couple of his friends and they put together a deep run to finish 45th of 1,032 teams, taking home $3,495.

Another Global Poker player, Sara “Sabjo182” Palmer (pictured in lead image), went out to Vegas and played in her first WSOP event, the $1,000 Ladies Championship. She ran very deep in the field of 696 players, narrowly bubbling the unofficial final table. Palmer finished in 11th place to earn herself $6,799.

Outside of the Rio, Louis "beijinghouse" Helm represented Global Poker at the Golden Nugget downtown Las Vegas as he took down a nightly $110 event in their Grand Poker Series for $1,875.

Cashing in at Global Poker

Another great success story comes from the virtual felt in the form of a freeroll turned into a hefty score. Last week, Marty "Thakid5" Martin won a free entry into the SC$218 Sunday Scrimmage through a Facebook competition.
