But don't sleep on the U.K. Open. It's a killer tournament in its own right, with a very, very solid line-up of European pros… and I wouldn't be surprised if a few of the heavy hitters from the WSOP stick around for the action too.
Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles (PRWEB) August 14, 2007
This fall, all poker roads are leading to London, England for two of the most prestigious events in Europe - the inaugural World Series of Poker Europe* and the 888.com U.K. Open.
PokerListings.com (http://www.pokerlistings.com/pacific-poker), the world's largest online poker guide, and 888.com flagship Pacific Poker (http://www.pacificpoker.com/pokerlisting2_en/?sr=931565), are ensuring their players are in the diamond lane all the way there, with two massive prize packages for the events up for grabs and a wave of cash freerolls along with them.
First up: A $25,000 World Series of Poker Europe* freeroll, open to all PokerListings players that earn just 50 comp points at Pacific Poker between June 1st and August 20, 2007.
The freeroll goes August 25, with the winner awarded a huge $22,000 prize package for the history-making WSOPE* Main Event starting Sept. 10. An extra $3,000 in cash will also be spread from position two down to a deep prize pool.
Shortly thereafter: A private $8,500 U.K. Open freeroll comes along for all PokerListings players who earn just 30 comp points by August 30, 2007.
That freeroll goes Sept. 7, with the winner taking a seat and travel expenses for the renowned 888.com U.K. Open in October.
"We know the WSOP Europe* is going to be epic," says Camilla Sundell, press secretary for PokerListings.com. "That's a given. With a relatively small field, a $20,000 buy-in and probably the most star-packed lineup poker has ever seen, that bracelet is going to be one of the most esteemed and sought-after accessories ever."
"So we're excited one of our players can be a part of that, absolutely," Sundell adds. "But don't sleep on the U.K. Open. It's a killer tournament in its own right, with a very, very solid line-up of European pros… and I wouldn't be surprised if a few of the heavy hitters from the WSOP stick around for the action too."
Also now on the table at Pacific Poker: Exclusive $5,000 monthly cash freerolls, open to all PokerListings players, new and existing, who collect 20 comp points in any given month.
Earning those points automatically qualifies you for the following month's freeroll, with the next scheduled one set to go September 16, 2007. There's no limit on how many you can play either - just keep collecting 20 points each month.
And, as always, for players who aren't yet members at Pacific Poker, signing-up through a PL link guarantees the biggest sign-up bonus in the industry - up to $150 at 50% match.
"This is definitely another win/win situation for our players," Sundell says. "Two wicked prize packages for two fantastic events, and even more free cash at one of the loosest and juiciest poker rooms going.
"The more our players can take advantage of it, the better."
