being in the middle of the action at the Main Event - seeing the legendary Doyle Brunson hold court, watching the fear creep in to a player's eyes when Phil Ivey sits down next to him - is the best place on the planet you could possibly be.
Curao, Netherlands Antilles (PRWEB) January 29, 2008
The world's best online poker resource, PokerListings.com (http://www.pokerlistings.com/full-tilt-poker), and Full Tilt Poker (http://www.fulltiltpoker.com/download-pokerlistings.php) are taking 2008 World Series of Poker* qualifying to the next level for their players with a new freeroll series offering $180,000 in all-expenses-paid prize packages and cash payouts.
In all, twelve exclusive $12.5k freerolls for PokerListings players (signed up at Full Tilt through a PokerListings.com link) will run starting Feb. 24.
The winner of each takes one of the most sought-after prizes in poker - a $12,500 package, including the $10,000 buy-in plus travel and accommodation, for the 2008 WSOP* Main Event.
"The World Series," says Camilla Sundell, press secretary for PokerListings.com, "is, and likely always will be, the pinnacle of the poker year.
"It's virtually every player's dream to sit at the felt in the most storied tournament in poker history, and with just under $200,000 in prize packages this year at Full Tilt alone, we're fulfilling that dream for more players than ever."
With 12 total freerolls and minimal entry requirements, players have plenty of opportunities to pick and choose the satellite that best fits their schedule. The first qualifying period is Feb. 6--Feb. 20, and the first freeroll is set for 1 p.m. (EST) on Feb. 24.
Just 300 Full Tilt Poker points is needed for entry to each.
"If you're a poker player," adds Sundell, "being in the middle of the action at the Main Event - seeing the legendary Doyle Brunson hold court, watching the fear creep in to a player's eyes when Phil Ivey sits down next to him - is the best place on the planet you could possibly be."
"And we couldn't be happier to give our players that opportunity."
If however, for some reason, the Main Event doesn't fit into a player's agenda for 2008, Full Tilt and PokerListings.com also have two other premium bonus deals on offer: $12,000 WPT "Winner's Choice" freerolls and weekly $3,000 cash freerolls.
Winner's Choice freerolls run monthly, with the next two scheduled for Feb. 10 and Mar. 16. All PokerListings players who earn 300 Full Tilt Poker points in the previous month are eligible; winner pockets buy-in plus expenses to the World Poker Tour or European Poker Tour event of their choice.
Weekly cash freerolls run every Saturday at 1 p.m. (EST), with just 150 Full Tilt points the week prior (Thurs.-Wed. each week) to qualify. All PokerListings players, new or existing, are eligible.
