The month of March might be crawling to an end, but that doesn’t mean that the Madness is ready to stop just yet. While the Tarheels, Bulldogs, Gamecocks and Ducks get ready to battle it in Arizona this weekend, poker players in the United States and Canada should be heading to GlobalPoker.com for what could be a massive weekend of overlays.
The GlobalPoker.com March Madness tournament series wraps up Sunday night with over $40,000 in guarantees between Thursday and Sunday night.
For those unfamiliar with GlobalPoker.com, a quick primer. The site, which is owned and operated by Australia-based VGW Holdings, uses a sweepstakes model to allow players to play for real money.
Players signing up for GlobalPoker.com today receive 10,000 Gold Coins, a virtual currency that has no cash value, and 2 free $weeps Cash that they can begin using right away with no strings attached.
If players want to boost up their bankroll or lose their initial 10,000 Gold Coins they will need to purchase more Gold Coins if they want to continue playing.
As an added bonus, with each purchase of Gold Coins, players receive “$weeps Cash” – a second virtual currency used in the Global Poker ecosystem. If players choose to play with $weeps Cash they can use that currency to buy-in to other ring games, sit-n-gos or tournaments and cash out any winnings via PayPal.
While the site has been extremely popular with American players, the final four days of the tournament schedule could feature a number of overlays – giving players even more reason to sign-up for free today.
The tournament schedule on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night includes a 5 + 0.50 $weeps Cash buy-in tournament each night with a 1,000 $Sweeps Cash guarantee. Thursday night is No Limit Hold’em, Friday night is Pot Limit Omaha and Saturday night is Six Max NLHE.
Players who have seen 5,000 flops at 0.1-0.2 and upwards in the last 24 days qualify for the $10,000 Total Madness freeroll and a shot at a big payday.
The highlight of the weekend though is undoubtedly the $25,000 guaranteed Complete Madness tournament. Set for Sunday at 7 pm ET, the event has a 50+5 $weeps Cash buy-in and allows for one rebuy and one add-on.
