Global Poker Celebrity Challenge Gets Underway
Global Poker’s first ever Celebrity Challenge promotion is well underway but there is still plenty of time left to get involved and take on the stars. In all, there are four celebs to battle it out with starting with none other than basketball legend and budding poker pro, Paul George.
Global Poker are giving players the chance to show off their skills against the legendary baller himself. From 19 September, running through the 26th of September, the popular online poker room will have a bunch of Sweeps Coin qualifying events in store for their players to participate in as well.
Each qualifier will produce one winner who will advance to the Paul George Final, where they will be given the chance to play against Paul George and compete for prizes including a place at the table for Global Poker Celebrity Challenge Grand Final in November.
Following PG-13’s campaign, Karl Anthony Towns, Michael Phelps and DJ Khaled all complete the superstar line up. All you need to do is head to GlobalPoker.com to sign up, register for an account and start playing.
Bring Your A Game
In total, there will be eight Sweeps Coin Qualifiers running from Sept 19 – 26. Global Poker players will battle it out for the chance to win a slice of the prize pool, an exclusive Global Poker T-shirt signed by Paul George and to secure a place in the Paul George Celebrity Challenge Final, where they will need to bring their A game when they take on PG-13 himself.
That’s not all there is to look forward to as players can also look on as all four of our poker playing heroes go head-to-head in a series of heads-up poker battles. Each celebrity will play against the other over the course of the series with all matches being streamed live on the Global Poker site.
The first of these heads up battles will see Paul George taking on his court comrade Karl-Anthony Towns. Here, the players have just three games to prove themselves. Whoever wins the best of three challenge will get to donate $10,000 to the charity of their choice. The winner of the heads-up challenge will be announced on 1 October on the Global Poker site.
Get Your Head in the Game
Following on from all four of the Celebrity Challenges, Global Poker will be wrapping things up in style with two Grand Finals taking place in November. There will be one for the celebrities and another for the Global Poker finalists.
Four Global Poker finalists from each Celebrity Challenge Final will be given the opportunity to participate in our Global Poker Celebrity Challenge Grand Final on 12 November. They will compete for a chance to win a Ferrari Race Day experience which includes an all-expenses paid trip to a Ferrari Race Day experience of their choice in North America.
Each of the four celebs will be dealt a slightly different hand as, instead, they will get to take on each other in the Celebrity Challenge Grand Final on 13 November where only one celebrity can claim the top spot, but all of the top three winners will donate $90,000 between them to charities of their choice.
