The upcoming series offers 90 events and major “Gold Coin” prizes

Amid the strong impact of the coronavirus pandemic and while the live poker scene continues to get back on track, online poker events are still in hot demand. After the success saw in previous online series in the past few months, Global Poker is bringing another big online series to start this month. The Summer Series will begin on June 22 and the last day is July 12. For this online championship, the organizers are offering 45 gold coin (GC) events and 45 sweeps coin (SC) events that come with great guaranteed prizes.

The schedule for this series consists of four different main events, with one of them being an SC$540 buy-in deepstack tournament that comes with an SC$500,000 guaranteed prize. The 45 SC events are bringing over SC$2,250,000 guaranteed while the GC events are offering over GC$500,000,000 for grabs. The site is already running several satellites in case players want to try getting an entry for a cheaper price.

Global Poker General Manager David Lyons said, "So far in 2020, we have been able to offer more series, more events, bigger prizes, bigger trophies, and more varied tournaments than ever before, and the Global Poker Summer Series is no different."

This series has a package ready to distribute among event winners. Each Global Poker champion will get a package that contains a one-of-a-kind Hawaiian shirt, a Summer Series trophy and some site's merchandise. Also, Global Poker announced it will be running several freerolls to warm up for the series two days before it starts, on June 19 and 20.
