The Global Poker Madness is one of this year’s most anticipated poker events. Now, the ground-breaking poker event is just around the corner and with just a little less than a week until it kicks off. As always, Global Poker will be offering the amazing seat discounts for the event, one of the things that make the poker operator a favourite among poker enthusiasts.

The SC$200,000 guaranteed no-limit hold’em tournament will begin officially next Sunday on April 1 at 5.30 pm with $540 buy-in. This year’s Global Poker Madness tournament Grand Finale, “The Nuts” has a prize pool that is four times larger than the poker operator’s previous largest tournament which makes it one of the best places for avid poker players to cash in. Furthermore, it is the only online poker site where all US citizens are able to play legally for real cash prizes and even though, like I mentioned earlier, the direct buy-in for the event amounts to SC$540, there are plenty of options to get in on the action for as little as SC$1.50. So you do need to worry if the SC$540 is not within your bankroll’s range.

To begin with, the SC$77 satellites guarantees 10 seats each, but the number will be increased to 25 on Saturday, a day before the tournament begins. There will be three action-packed stages before the main event:

Stage 1 – will include SC$1.50 satellites which will award a stage 2 ticket for every SC$11 in the prize pool.

Stage 2 – will include SC$11 satellites which will award a stage 3 ticket for every SC$77 in the prize pool.

Stage 3 – will include SC$77 satellites which will award a main event seat for every SC$540 in the prize pool.

So far, only 41 players have secured seats for the Global Poker Madness Main Event which implies a possible huge overlay for the site considering how big the prize pool is.
