    Hey guys,

    We are excited to announce Event #2 of the DFS Poker Open, hosted by Global Poker! Since the first one was such a success and fun time, we went ahead and got to work on creating another event and we think you are going to like it!

    First, let’s start with what is Global Poker?

    GlobalPoker is a sweepstakes-based US online poker site that has been in operation since 2016. Rather than buying in for cash, players purchase Gold Coins to fund their account. Prizes won on the site can be redeemed as cash and paid back to your bank account.

    We made some changes that include a MASSIVE SC20,000 guaranteed prize pool, an additional over SC6,000 in added prizes, unlimited rebuys in the first hour, late registration and more! Find all the tournament details below.

    How to signup for Global Poker and the DFS Poker Open.

    STEPS:

    1. Go to Global Poker (Make sure you click through this link or one of our links on Twitter)
    2. Create your username and password
    3. Click “Buy Coins” in the top right-hand corner and purchase your Sweep Coins (Watch video below)

    4. After you have completed your purchase, click the “Switch Currency”. From there, click the refresh icon next to “SC” and you should see your purchase amount there
    5. Click the Tournaments tab. From there, search DFS in the search bar and the DFS Poker Open will come up (make sure to switch the currency to SC from gold coins first).
    6. Enter the tournament by using this password and SC11!
    7. Have fun and enjoy knocking out some of your favorite DFS personalities and winning their bounties!

    Global Poker FAQs

    Is Global Poker Legit?
    Thanks to their unique sweepstakes model, players in the United States (excluding Washington State) and Canada (excluding Quebec) can play on GlobalPoker.com. Unlike a traditional online poker site, players do not make deposits but rather purchase Gold Coins which have no monetary value.

    How do you get Sweeps Coins on Global Poker?
    Sweeps Coins are obtained on Global Poker with a purchase of Gold Coins. Depending on the amount of Gold Coins purchased, players will receive free sweepstakes entries by way of Sweeps Coins.

    Is Global Poker played with real money?
    No. There are two currencies in use on Global Poker. Gold Coins are not eligible for redemption, while Sweeps Coins can be redeemed for cash or other prizes.

    Is Global Poker safe?
    Part of a larger Australian company (VGW Holdings), Global Poker is whitelisted by Facebook and licensed by the Gaming Authority in Malta. Global Poker is a safe option for US online poker players.

    How do I claim my bounty?
    Global Poker will contact RG with a list of the usernames that knocked out someone with a bounty. If you knock out someone with a bounty, please post your Global Poker username in this thread with the person(s) you knocked out. We will then contact you via RG DM’s to work on getting you your prize. Also, if you knock out the Champion from our inaugural tournament (JeremySickel – User Name JSickel on Global Poker) you’ll win our special edition RG T-Shirt as a bounty (just email support@rotogrinders.com after doing so).

    Enjoy and good luck on the felt!

    This is really awesome with all the add in’s from the bounties and the top 20 getting 218 SC Tickets. And the winner gets to go to the 2021 RG Party which won’t be me but still would be pretty cool to take a trip to Nashville.

  • acdawg712

    Looking forward after missing the last one. FWIW, I got 20 SC for free (no payment information) and 30 SC for $10. Hopefully it’s the same for everyone.

    What’s the best way to deposit and hopefully withdrawal?

  • baralufficus

    So what does 20,000 in SC amount to in real money , kinda has me confused

  • acdawg712

    Visa credit card didn’t work, but visa debit card was a success. Looks like bank withdrawal is best.

    We will contact you today! Is your RG name the same as your GP one? If not, please post your GP one.

    Thanks

    20 SC for $5 today. Hopefully don’t need to rebuy 5 times or else I’ll have to make 1 more in cash lol.

  • mes21

    Does the bounty count on the 1st time we would knock out a bounty player or would it be after they exit the tournament after any potential re-buys?

    It’s only the player responsible for ending a bounty’s tournament that gets the prize.

    Goldboy, try changing the currency in the lobby, you may be looking at the Gold Coin tournament lobby. Need to switch currency to SC.

  • yisman

    unfortunately I can’t play tonight

    I’ll be curious to know how many entries+rebuys there end up being, though

  • BerkeleyBoss

    Can you rebuy right off the bat for a double stack or do you have to get down to 0 chips in order to rebuy? Trying to figure out how much I should deposit.

    You have to get to 0 to re-buy.

    The only time you can buy while having chips is the one time add-on.

    Standard poker tournaments offer unlimited rebuys until a certain time (like the first break) and then at the break, they offer one add-on.

    So obviously you should expect people to be aggressive early.

    Thanks! I haven’t played much online (outside of ACR these past 2 weeks) since 2011.
