POKER YOUR PUMPKIN — OCTOBER 28-31
Scare your opponents to death—or at least give them pumpkin to talk about—on the scariest day of the year. Halloween isn’t Halloween without a pumpkin, so this year, we’re going ghoul out and throwing a pumpkin carving competition for your chance to win some frighteningly fierce goodies.
Get ahead of the carve and send us your scary squash pics on Facebook. The top 20 participants will not only be awarded pump-king status—that’s not a real thing, by the way, but by all means you can start calling yourself the Pumpkin King if you want to; we’re not going to stop you—they’ll also get the chance to win some fierce Global Poker merchandise. Have you got the stomach for them though?
That’s not all. Anyone who submits a valid entry will also stand to receive a pair of Eagle Cup socks. Now that’s spooky.
PUMPKIN SMASHER TOURNAMENT! — OCTOBER 31, 9:30pm
Trick or treat, or blood-curdling T-shirt? We’ll take the Tee please. Get pumped for Halloween with our ghoul-tastic Global Poker Halloween T-shirts. That’s right, we’ll be sending these hellish creations out to the top 66 GC and SC players of our Pumpkin Smasher Tournament, just in time for Fright Night. Finish up in the top 66 of the Gold Coin Pumpkin Smasher and you’ll get the opportunity to choose between two terrifying designs.
Take things up a notch—post a pic of you wearing your shirt on social using the hashtag #HalloweenGP, and we’ll send you an extra pair of Global Poker socks. Because nothing is scarier than an eagle shaped like a foot.
SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
With 21 days to swoop up one of our majestic Eagle Cup trophies, take a look at the schedules below to lock talons and launch your plan of attack.
WINNER WINNER EAGLE DINNER—WHAT YOU CAN WIN
Aside from the whopping GC831,330,000 and SC1,862,000 in total series prizes guaranteed, we’ve also got some pretty slick swag you could fly away with.
All talon-ted (see what we did there?) event winners—from both Gold Coin and Sweeps Coins events—stand to win a Champion Pack which includes a Global Poker hoodie, T-Shirt, Global Poker cap and of course, the Eagle Cup VI Trophy.
WINGS OF DESIRE
All event winners —you stand to get one of these (not so) little beauties.
As well as the Eagle Cup VI trophy, Gold Coin event winners also stand to win some Eagle Cup VI specific swag—show off who's at the top of the pecking order—Eagle Cup hoodie, T-shirt (in your choice of either gold or blue) & cap. Think you can slide your wings into one of these?
Sweeps Coin event winners don’t go back to the nest empty-handed (taloned? No, that’s too far), and stand to win some of our core swag—a Global Poker hoodie, T-shirt & cap, as well as the Eagle Cup VI trophy of course.
SNATCH YOUR EAGLE AVATAR
Look fierce at the table with your own Eagle Cup VI avatar. These flights of fancy will be awarded to leaderboard and event winners (both Gold Coin and Sweeps Coin events). But don’t get your feathers in a flap! Even if you don’t win, you can still get your wings on your own Eagle avatar—all remaining participants will be able to purchase their alter-eagle with Gold Coins.
EAGLE CUP VI LEADERBOARD—GO FOR GOLD
Play out your eagle fantasies, and if your play matches up to your wingspan you could see your name up in lights on the Eagle Cup VI leaderboard. That’s not all, finalists who make it to the top 10 can also get their wings on some pretty impressive prizes. Plus, for the first time in a Global Poker Championship, leaderboard winners of both our Gold Coin and Sweeps Coin events will be awarded this rather handsome golden fellow.
