Here is a look at what you should now prior to the kick-off ! - Global Poker Masters
This weekend, Malta is playing host to the very first Poker World Cup, a festivity run in conjunction with the European Poker Tour (EPT). Prior to the kick-off event, it is worth mentioning that the Global Poker Masters will see 8 nations participating at the competition: France, Germany, USA, UK, Canada, Germany, Russia, Italy and Ukraine. Each team will consist of 5 players, bringing the total number of participants to 40. Organized by the Global Poker Index (GPI), all poker tournaments will be broadcasted on Twitch. With a view to target wider audience, the commentaires will be available in 5 different languages. GPI President, Alexandre Dreyfus, is expecting about a million viewers worldwide with this initiative. On the menu of the Global Poker Masters are "Win the button" Sit & Go, 6-Max Heads-up and lots more. Oddly, players will only have 30 seconds of reflection for each hand.
Moreover, all players must wear unique outfits, namely the JAQK polo shirts, with the Team name on the front. Recall that this fashion brand has gained popularity among leading poker tournaments in the last couple of years. Unlike in all international poker championships, this time, players ar not authorized to bring their respective sponsor stickers on the table. Hence, they will not compete on behalf of their sponsors. Alexandre Dreyfus has even set a special dress code for the media representatives covering the event. That said, proper attire is required for all members of the media.
