London, UK (PRWEB) January 19, 2008
CelebPoker today announced they are putting up more than €612,000 in prize money to be won through their new http://www.celebpoker.com/league/cp_league.php?PHPSESSID=s74dohf73fuuglcqfc3ub64us2, which starts on February 1st 2008.
Since the days when poker was a game played on the Mississippi Riverboats, and traveling card sharks would compete for 'table superiority' and bragging rights, poker players have always looked for ways to prove that they are better than one and other. You only have to observe some the chat between players at online celebrity poker room, CelebPoker, to see how eager most online poker players are to outshine their opponents and prove they are the best.
The new Poker League will be run as a monthly competition for all CelebPoker players, factoring in a unique points system (which considers the number of participants and level of buy-in at each tournament) to ensure that only the best players rise to the top of the table. Indeed, with a staggering €51,000 to be won every month, the lofty position at the top of the leader-board is definitely a place that poker players will want to finish.
From 1st February, players at CelebPoker will have the chance to accrue league points in 21 weekly tournaments, with a choice of 3 tournaments per day running at different times to suit. At these tournaments players will be able to generate league points (and cash bonuses) based on three factors: the position they finish, the number of players taking part in the tournament and how much it cost to the buy-in (enter), with the final number of points calculated by multiplying these three factors together. The league is free to enter and, quite simply, the more points that a player can amass over a monthly period, the higher they will soar up the TOP 20 leader-board and the bigger cash prize they will win!
Now here is the interesting part! As part of its league set-up, CelebPoker is also adding extra cash rewards to the prize pools of their biggest weekly guaranteed tournaments. In a bold move, that will be very popular with the online community, CelebPoker has outlined 4 weekly network MTT's (Multi-Table Tournaments) in which players can win these splendid bonuses:
o Monday 11:00 (GMT) €4,000 Rebuy - Win this and they will double your 1st prize!
o Wednesday 20:00 €25,000 Daily Guaranteed - Win this and they will give you a €2000 bonus!
o Saturday 14:30 €5,500 Rebuy - Win this and they will double your 1st Prize!
o Sunday 20:00 €100,000 Weekly - Finish in the top 5 receive an extra €1,000!
These great tournament prizes are available exclusively for CelebPoker players and are not available on any other Boss Media partner. In short, you have to join CelebPoker to get your hands on the cash and play in the league.
Whether you are new to the game of poker or a battle-scarred professional, CelebPoker's CEO, Dave Donovan, knows just how good it feels to see your name sitting pretty at the top of a league table or have a poker room double your 1st place prize money:
'Our main objective was to create an online poker league that is competitive, challenging and fun, for players for players at all levels, and we have produced a great league format with a simple structure and excellent prizes. At CelebPoker we're not afraid to push the boundaries, and the fact that we are adding extra cash incentives on-top of existing tournament prize pools will be a great attraction for many online poker players. Why would you want to play your tournament poker anywhere else?'
With more prizes on offer than any of their competitors, free entry for all CelebPoker players and a league structure that is simple and easy to understand, it's a very good question!
