they used to but it never ran, think they got rid of the ring tables few months ago. They had a nightly fixed limit tournament that ran but looks like that also got the axe.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

Is there any way to set up a private game on Global? If so, can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

I cashed out some money from global to skrill but, now I realize this is pointless because you can't link a US bank account. Anyone know if you can deposit on another site or get gift cards or buy bitcoin and move them?

If you have a tournament ticket in your account, are you able to exchange it for cash or are you forced to use it to play a tournament? Thanks.

I've had good experiences with the gift cards I've ordered, they're digital codes, that take anywhere from 15 minutes to a few hours to get(most within an hour, but have had some larger ones take a bit longer) you can initiate a cashout and choose prizeout gift card to see the selection of cards offered and backout without ordering one, but theres amazon cards, chipotle/steakhouse/eatery cards, and several niche services. Some of the more niche services give discounts for extra value, most are dollar for dollar though.

edit: looks like they might not have amazon cards anymore, not sure what determines the rotating pool but i do see a card that they quit carrying for a bit and is now back, so maybe amazon comes back too. Still have target, home depot, among others.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

I've been trying to get a win/loss statement for the last month so I can do last year's taxes and I still haven't got one. I've emailed them about a dozen times and all I get are automated replies. This is insane. A U.S. gambling site that doesn't give timely records for tax filing. Can't they get in legal trouble for this??

Since is sweepstakes may not be technically profit if you do not cash it out.

Is Global still processing the free $5 * 5 envelopes during Covid (my grandma wants to know)?

It has been 24 hours and they have yet to convert my additional tickets. I emailed support and they said I need to provide them with a screenshot of the tournament lobby where it stated that they'd convert the tickets. WTF?

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

I have played on this site for a while and seriously wondered if it was a legit game... I have been up on the site and down at times but after going 4 straight jackpot sit n go's and flopping top two pair or making trip's and being called by someone who caught nothing on the flop but then goes runner runner to catch a flush... I understand bad beats and I have taken my share of then but that just seems a little to far out there for me.

Wow... compared to other U.S.-facing site threads, this one's necrotic.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

the worst part about global, my only complaint really, is that when you get the "trying to reconnect" and you get reconnected, sometimes it auto folds your hands.

you reestablish a connection, I don't know if its global or my internet, just for a short while but what ensues can really suck. It just starts folding your hands. You have to close out the table and reopen it to be able to properly play or click a button. It doesn't always happen with all of the tables either but a large majority of them in my experience if the "trying to reconnect" lasts for more than oh, 15 seconds. If it's a quick one, usually things are ok. If the reconnection lasts a bit though, it is disastrous. This needs to be fixed. I know this isn't only happening to me because my friend said he has had the same thing happen to him.

Emailing support about this now because fml has it cost me some ends.

Are you allowed to use any tracking software for either hand coverters or huds. Really like o find something to track hands and possibly use a hud if it’s allowed.

So question. Is global okay with buying the 2K SC with 100 bonus SC and just immediately withdrawing the 2k?
