We hope all our readers can check out our re-caps from the 2007 WSOP on PokerListings.com (www.pokerlistings.com/live-tournaments/wsop), and we'll be back from L.A. on August 25 for more the same.
Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles (PRWEB) August 1, 2007
It's a tough act to follow, the World Series of Poker.
But the world's best online poker guide, PokerListings.com (http://www.pokerlistings.com/promotions), is up to the task, following up its acclaimed 2007 WSOP coverage with two things that will fill the void for poker fans.
First: From Barcelona to the Turks and Caicos on the World Poker Tour. Dublin to the Bahamas on the European Poker Tour. The history-making WSOP Europe. Name the major upcoming live event and a PokerListings player will likely be at the felt, with over $175,000 in new, exclusive PL prize packages now on the table.
Second: Expect even more of the same great coverage seen at the WSOP, with up-to-the-minute live updates, behind-the-scenes scoops and more of the irascible PL wit from continuing live tournament reporting around the globe.
"The 2007 World Series of Poker," says Camilla Sundell, press secretary for PokerListings.com, "was, to put it mildly, off the charts. Exhausting and exhilarating all at once, with some of the most gut wrenching beats and high-intrigue poker clashes we've ever seen.
"We're really pleased so many of our players got to be a part of it, even though we didn't bring home the big one.
"Thankfully, however, the poker world never stops turning. So we're sending even more of our players around the world with our new satellites, and will bring even more first-rate, wall-to-wall coverage to our readers who can't be there."
Among the new satellite highlights: a $50,000 EPT freeroll at Titan Poker with the winner getting buy-ins and expenses-paid trips to three events of their choice; $25,000+ freerolls for the history-making WSOP Europe at Titan, Pacific Poker, Betfair Poker and Gnuf.com; $12,500 "Winner's Choice" freerolls at Full Tilt Poker for the WPT. And a ton more.
Among the upcoming PokerListings.com coverage highlights: The WPT Legends of Poker from Los Angeles in August, the inaugural EPT Barcelona Open, and, of course, the WSOP Europe, set to bring the most legendary accessory in poker to foreign soil for the first-time ever.
"We're extremely proud of the job the PokerListings tournament team did at the WSOP," Sundell adds. "From the live updates to the great video interviews to the hilarious blogs, the PL crew brought our readers some of the most surprising stuff of the series.
"The Devilfish trying to seduce one of our reporters, Seinfeld's Jason Alexander… the highlights are too many to mention.
"We hope all our readers can check out our re-caps from the 2007 WSOP on PokerListings.com (http://www.pokerlistings.com/live-tournaments/wsop), and we'll be back from L.A. on August 25 for more the same."
