Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles (PRWEB) September 13, 2008
Already packed with $30k in exclusive events, PokerListings.com's high-value freeroll series at Pacific Poker has expanded yet again with another private freeroll added to the schedule -- this one with a total value of $10.5k and an all-inclusive prize package for the 2008 888.com Poker Open on the line.
The new freeroll joins a lineup that includes a $15k freeroll on Sept. 21 for an amazing PokerStars.com European Poker Tour London prize package, plus $15,000 in private monthly cash freerolls.
"There's no doubt the U.K. is the place to be for poker players this fall," says Hannah Mayen, media relations director for PokerListings.com, "with so many incredible events on the calendar. And the 888.com Poker Open stands among the best of them.

Scheduled for Oct. 12, 2008, the exclusive freeroll is open to all PokerListings players (signed up at Pacific Poker through a PL.com link) who earn just 75 player points at Pacific Sept. 1-Oct. 8.
The winner of the freeroll then takes an $8,500 prize package, including buy-in, travel and accommodation, for the 888.com Poker Open V, set for Oct. 27-Nov. 7. An extra $2,000 in cash will also be spread from position two down to a deep prize pool.
Not to be overlooked, PokerListings players have another exclusive opportunity to earn a spot at the felt at a prestigious live event in the U.K. just a few weeks prior.
The second of two PokerStars.com European Poker Tour freerolls, a $15,000 EPT London freeroll will run on Sept. 21, 2008, with all players who earn 75 comp points between Aug. 1 and Sept. 14 eligible to play.
Winner there takes a $13k prize package, including the £5,200 buy-in plus travel and accommodation, for the EPT London main event from Oct 1-5, 2008. An extra $2,000 in cash is also spread from position two down.
