A 44-year-old carpenter from Northglen, Colo., recently won a $12,500 World Series of Poker (WSOP) prize package in a freeroll tournament sponsored by leading online poker guide, PokerListings.com (pokerlistings.com), and top internet poker room Pacific Poker (pacificpoker.com). Soon he will be facing some of the best poker players in the world at the WSOP in Las Vegas.

The strict requirements of this bonus offer make it an incredibly valuable event. As Ron Brown found out, the players who qualify have a great chance of winning a seat to the WSOP this summer.

Ron Brown first started playing poker online about three years ago and recently pulled in his biggest tournament win to earn a spot at the World Series of Poker this summer.

In early May, Brown won a $12,500 WSOP Main Event prize package in a freeroll tournament sponsored by PokerListings.com (http://www.pokerlistings.com/pacific-poker-promotion) and Pacific Poker (http://www.pacificpoker.com/?sr=931565). The package includes the $10,000 buy-in and $2,500 for travel and accommodation expenses to the WSOP in Las Vegas.

“This win is great. I’m very excited about it,” Brown said. “This tournament was my single biggest win.”

Brown won the first of three PokerListings.com freeroll tournaments with WSOP Main Event prize packages offered with Pacific Poker. The second will be played on June 11, 2006, and the third will be played on July 16, 2006. In addition to the WSOP prize package, $2,500 in cash will be spread out between places 2-20, with second place receiving a $1,000 payout.

“The freeroll tournaments we’re offering with Pacific Poker are a great chance for players to earn a seat at the WSOP this summer,” said Steve Williams, senior editor at PokerListings.com. “The strict requirements of this bonus offer make it an incredibly valuable event. As Ron Brown found out, the players who qualify have a great chance of winning a seat to the WSOP this summer.”

Brown said he regularly logs on to PokerListings.com and plays poker online daily.

“I’m a big fan of PokerListings.com. The more I explore the site, the more helpful I find it. I also play at Pacific Poker more than most sites. You can find a pretty easy game there,” he said.

Now Brown, who plays online as “rivs15,” will have a chance to use his online poker knowledge when he faces some of the professional players who inspired him to start playing after he watched them on TV.

“I’m not nervous about going heads-up against any of the top pros,” Brown said. “I’m more worried that I’ll just do something stupid like calling with a weak hand just because I think someone is bluffing. That seems to be my biggest downfall in tournaments.”
