August 23 Let The Battle For The Crown Begin
For the first time in US Poker Open history, it’s possible to play the tournament series online. And where better to play, than the site where you can play for free and win real prizes—Global Poker.

Freerolls and satellites available in the Global Poker tournament lobby from Aug 12.

GC 500,000,000 and SC 1,000,000 IN TOTAL PRIZES GUARANTEED
