The Gold Coin Main Event will run at exactly the same time but with a whopping 40,000,000 guarantee.
As is the norm, there will also be a bunch of exclusive branded merchandise up for grabs alongside the tidy prize pools. Global Poker has gone beyond the call of duty and created some wicked looked products to hand out.
All players who finish in the money in either event will collect the usual limited-edition caps, t-shirts, and hoodies, as well as a branded clothing pin.
Winners of the 44 Gold Coin tournaments will receive a trophy in the post, along with a Global Poker Bounty Series cap and enamel pin. All final table participants will receive a pin.
Buy-ins will range from GC 11,000 and SC 11 with plenty of prize money on the line.
How it All Works
For those of you who are new to Global Poker, or poker tournaments in general, there are a fews points to clarify before you jump straight into the action.
Firstly, bounty tournaments aren’t regular poker tournaments. For sure there is a regular prize pool, just like you expect, but only half of the buy-ins go into that. The rest goes in the bounty pool.
What happens is whenever a player knocks another out, they collect the bounty on that player’s head. This is a relatively new idea that caught on so well that this format is threatening to become the most popular form of poker online.
This exciting dynamic means that players need not fear busting out of an event and always finishing empty-handed. Now players can win handsomely just from knocking other players out, even if they don’t reach the money in the regular prize pool.
The other point to understand is the Global Poker currency system.
Gold Coins (GC) are thought of purely as play chips. They can not be exchanged for real money or prizes.
When buying Gold Coins (GC) some players will receive Sweeps Coins (SC) to play tournaments and cash games. This virtual currency can be exchanged for a combination of real money and a multitude of prizes.
Players should note that Sweeps Coins (SC) can not be purchased . They are only available free of charge using one of the methods of entry at Global Poker.
