London, England (PRWEB) January 29, 2009
DevilfishPoker.com today announced its European Masters of Poker™ qualification where players can win €1,600 packages to the first leg of the five-stop tour taking place in Tallin, Estonia from February 22 to 26.
The European Masters of Poker™ has a buy in of €1,000+100 on each stop (Cyprus, Spain, Czech Republic, and Malta will follow later in the year), with estimated fields of up to 400 which offer participants a chance of taking home the first prize of up to €100,000 and an EMOP trophy.
DevilfishPoker.com players can qualify for as little as €2 or 200 VIP-points with nine daily satellites to the €100 Sunday Main Qualifier. Each package consists of €1,100 for the tournament buy-in and €500 for travel and hotel expenses with a minimum of six packages guaranteed in each Sunday Main Qualifier. The EMOP appeals to players wishing to play big live tournaments with affordable buy-ins, in exiting locations.
February sees two extra main qualifiers to the EMOP Tallinn event with a €100 buy in on Sunday Feb. 4 and Feb. 11 at 18.40 GMT.
Someone you might meet there is Dave "Devilfish" Ulliott, who continued his live poker tournament roll at the weekend with a 23rd place finish at the European Poker Tour Deauville, France picking up a tidy €15,500 in the process.
"I was really relaxed and confident going into the game," said Ulliott. "I felt as if I was destined to make the final table but it's been a great month and now I'm look forward to getting back to my website DevilfishPoker.com, playing some bounties and cash games, and gearing up to make this one of my most profitable years ever."
Earlier in January the Englishman won the Euro Finals of Poker in the Aviation Club de Paris, France picking up €152,000 for his victory as well as a diamond bracelet. That was the second win for Devilfish in 2009, having also dominated a side event at the Irish Poker Championship for a €33,000 victory in the first week of January. His total tournament earnings for January 2009 so far are €200,500.
