LET THE UNDERDOG RISE UP
It’s official! We are back for round two of an even bigger US Poker Open 2022, hosted by Global Poker. If you missed the USPO Warm Up Week last month, don’t worry, we’re about to turn up the heat to a scorching 11 with a bumper tournament series jam packed with unmissable events.
Kicking off on August 22, this series is set to be bigger and bolder than last year, with more action, more players, more events, and of course, a bucket load of prizes.
Bragging rights could be yours for the taking with this year’s mammoth line-up of events—from super deep to super bounty, we’ve got every poker format covered. The best bit? You can get in on the action for free. Our line-up of Gold Coin events are just as dazzling as the prizes themselves.
This truly is the rise of the underdog where any player has the chance to play the US Poker Open for free with a number of ways to qualify, and not a single buy-in over SC 99!

This year, we have all-new low buy-in (GC 33,000 / SC 33) events to complement the higher buy-in (GC 99,000 / SC 99) events this year, and a wide variety of PLO tournaments, Super Bounty and Progressive Bounty events, 6-Max and 8-Max events.
Plus, for the first time in Global Poker x US Poker Open history, we’ll also be launching a collection of brand new “Super Deep” tournament events, designed specifically for players who love the slower, old school style tournaments.
