Global Poker Brings Back the GOAT Championship for 2020

Prove you have what it takes to battle your way towards a GOAT title from Aug 3-23 on Global Poker. Over 200 scheduled GC & SC events, plus freerolls and a final Tournament of Champions to cap off the series. More info and full schedule below.

The Global Poker GOAT Championship has returned for August 2020 as the biggest event in the site’s history. The three-week series has over 200 events with a total of 330 million GC and 1.1M SC guaranteed. Not only will players battle for a GOAT Championship title, but also the prestigious trophy and exclusive SWAG pack. Event winners will then lock horns one last time in the Tournament of Champions on August 30. The prize? A $5,000 tournament package of their choice.

GOAT Freerolls and Details

The GOAT Championship - Global Poker

In true Global Poker Championship tradition, the Goat II kicks off with opening freerolls on July 31 and Aug 1. These pop-up games are your chance to get into the series for free. So make sure you’re on Global Poker between 12-8 pm (ET) because you’ll only get an hour’s notice.

And act fast - because the freerolls are capped at 3,000 players and will sell out like hotcakes. Otherwise, you can buy-in for low, medium and high stakes - starting from SC 3.30, all the way up to SC 218. 

Once you’re in, you’ll begin your battle for dominance on Monday, August 3. With a mix of all the formats you know and love - including Double Chance and Progressive Bounties. We like the latter because you can bust players and walk away with a prize without necessarily winning the event.

However, over 21 days, your aim will be to score big leading up to the massive Main Event on August 23. There will be GC 5.1 million and SC 100,000 guaranteed up for grabs - a prize worth fighting for.

Winners Get the Goat Championship Pack

All Gold Coin and Sweeps Coin event winners get their own Global Poker GOAT Championship pack. Including an inscribed GOAT trophy and exclusive Global Poker GOAT merchandise. Later, winners can enter the Hometown Heroes promotion to submit images with their prizes for the opportunity of bigger rewards.

Plus, entry into the Tournament of Champions where even bigger prizes are up for grabs. Including a tournament package for an event of your choosing. However, it’s not just the showdown winners that get rewarded. Get to final table and there’s a share of SC 5,000 for you as well.

Join Global Poker Just in Time

Global Poker

Global Poker is a free online social poker room with a great game variety and over a million  players. This means bigger prize pools and more championships and tournaments like the GOAT II. US players especially can join in all the fun because there’s no purchase necessary to enjoy the diverse poker games. 

In fact, Global Poker works with a “Sweepstakes model” - which is legal in 49 states. Instead of having a poker account with real money, you can fund it with Gold Coins (GC) which you purchase. Or with ‘bonus’ credits called Sweeps Coins (SC) - which you get from Gold Coins purchases. You can use either of these to play in the Global Poker GOAT Championship.

During The GOAT II events will replace some tournaments, including the weekend majors - same time, same buy-in. So you can play your favorites, just with the potential for bigger rewards. Below is the full The GOAT II schedule of Gold Coin and Sweeps Coins events.
