Rattlesnake Open

After several weeks of poker tournament action on Global Poker, the Rattlesnake Open VI has reached its conclusion. The series on the popular social poker site featured 109 events in each of Global Poker's in-game currencies—Gold Coins (GC) events and Sweeps Coins (SC) with combined guarantees of GC 896,500,000 and SC 1,943,000.

The series, which kicked off on May 7 and wrapped up on May 28, culminated with two main events that saw "Donkeychem" and "Nobsfor1" being named champions. "Donkeychem" took down the GC 40,000,000 guaranteed 31-H: Main Event NLHE for GC 8,160,000, while "Nobsfor1" emerged victorious in 31-H: Main Event NLHE SC 200,000 Guaranteed for SC 34,420.
