The World Series Main Event is, bar none
Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles (PRWEB) May 24, 2008
The world's best online poker resource, PokerListings.com, and one of Europe's busiest poker rooms, Ladbrokes Poker, are reminding poker players still looking for a seat in the 2008 World Series of Poker* Main Event that $55,000 in exclusive prize packages are still available in two upcoming co-sponsored freerolls at Ladbrokes.
Four $12,500 prize packages in total -- all including the Main Event buy-in plus travel and accommodation -- will be handed out in the freerolls, which are set to play June 7 and June 14, 2008.
"The World Series Main Event is, bar none," says Hannah Mayen, media relations director at PokerListings.com, "the most storied tournament in the history of poker.
"There's nothing that rivals sitting at the felt and soaking in the atmosphere at the Main Event, and this freeroll series is an unbeatable opportunity for our players to be a part of that."
All players signed up at Ladbrokes Poker through a PokerListings.com link who collect 1,000 points between March 1 and May 31, 2008 will be eligible to play in the first freeroll on June 7.
All players who earn 2,000 points between March 1 and May 31 will be eligible to play in both freerolls. The top two players in each event win the prize packages, and a bonus $2,500 in cash will also be spread to a deep prize pool in each freeroll.
"Our recipe is simple," adds Mayen. "The biggest sign-up bonuses, guaranteed, and high-value, player-friendly freerolls for the best live poker tournaments in the world. With fields for our special event freerolls regularly topping out at just over 100 players, there's no place a poker player can find any better value online.
"We wish all of our players the best of luck ... and the best of cards."
Note: Also not to be missed at Ladbrokes for PokerListings players: private monthly $5,000 cash freerolls and a sign-up bonus for new players topping out at $1,000 at 100% match.
Monthly cash freerolls are open to all PL players who collect just 100 Ladbrokes points in the previous month.
