And this definitely qualifies. Limited fields, high per-player value, plenty of chances to get paid out… we think it's got a lot to offer - not the least of which is a seat with the game's legends in the biggest poker event in the world.
Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles (PRWEB) February 19, 2008
The high-value monthly freerolls for PokerListings.com players (http://www.pokerlistings.com/poker-stars) at PokerStars (http://www.pokerstars.com/sites/poker-listings/) continue in March with another $35k on the table, including the first freeroll in their exclusive $100k 2008 World Series of Poker* Main Event series.
All freerolls are exclusive to PokerListings players (new or existing, signed up at PokerStars from a PL.com link) who earn either 100 FPPs or 500 FPPs in February, 2008.
Just 100 FPPs qualifies players for five total freerolls - four weekly $2,500 cash freerolls, held every Saturday in March, plus a $12,000 EPT San Remo freeroll on March 16, where the winner will take an all-inclusive package to the European Poker Tour main event stop in San Remo, Italy.
Just 500 FPPs qualifies players for a private $13,500 freeroll, where the winner will walk away with an all-inclusive package for the 2008 WSOP* Main Event - the first of what will total $100,000 in World Series of Poker* and cash prizes.
"PokerStars has set the bar so high as far as poker sites go," says Hannah Mayen, media relations director for PokerListings.com, "that if we're going to put a package together for our players, it has to be first-rate.
"And this definitely qualifies. Limited fields, high per-player value, plenty of chances to get paid out… we think it's got a lot to offer - not the least of which is a seat with the game's legends in the biggest poker event in the world."
The exclusive PokerListings Main Event freeroll is scheduled for Mar. 30 at 8 p.m. (GMT), with $13,500 in total prize money on the line; $11,500 including Main Event buy-in, travel and hotel for the winner and $2,000 in extra cash spread to a deep prize pool from position two down.
The $12k EPT San Remo freeroll is scheduled for Mar. 16 at 8 p.m. (GMT), with a similar payout structure; winner takes a $9,500 package including buy-in for the San Remo main event and $2,500 in cash is spread to the rest of the prize pool.
Qualifying period for all freerolls is Feb. 1-29, 2008.
Players yet to open an account at PokerStars should also note the world-best sign-up bonus through a PokerListings.com link - an exclusive $50 bonus on top of the standard $50 match bonus. The first $25 is released at 100 FPPs and the second $25 is released at 500 FPPs.
"The world's biggest bonus, constant high-value freerolls and a world-class poker room," adds Mayen. "It's a winning combination, and we pride ourselves on ensuring our players get in with the best of it wherever they choose to play."
