'Greeen' Turns SC$77 Into SC$40000 At Global Poker Madness – US Poker (blog)

April 1 will go down in the record books for Global Poker. After a month of satellites beginning as low as SC$1.50 and a host of preliminary events, players took to the virtual felt to play in the largest tournament in Global Poker history.

The Global Poker Madness Main Event welcomed 419 players paying SC$540 for the privilege of winning their share of the impressive SC$209,500 prize pool. It easily eclipsed the guarantee of SC$200,000 after some predictions that there would be a massive overlay.

The overlay didn’t materialize as 189 players qualified to play in the SC$540 buy-in tournament by winning one of the many satellites that ran during the entire month of March.

After qualifying for the Nuts Main Event by winning a seat in a SC$77 satellite, it was ‘Greeen’ who was left holding all the chips. His hard-fought victory earned him SC$40,194, the biggest score of his career.

“I’m honestly beside myself,” ‘Greeen’ said after the tournament in the public forums. “I’ve played poker for a year and a half, a losing player, break even at best.”

‘Greeen’ first started playing on the Global Poker website eight months ago. He credits the site as a great place to play poker, especially for someone with a small bankroll.

After a single day’s work at the poker table, ‘Greeen’ is pocketing the equivalent of a year’s salary. “40K is a little less than my annual earnings,” he said. “I work 50-60 hours a week.”

‘Greeen’ is having a hard time believing his good fortune, saying “I have spontaneously broken into tears six times this morning.”

‘Greeen’ concluded with a little inspiration for all those players struggling to make a breakthrough: “The dream is alive boys! Never doubt yourselves.”
