London (PRWEB) February 11, 2009
European licenced poker-room CelebPoker.com is proud to announce the International Championship of Online Poker (ICOP) - a series of tournaments running over 7 days (9th March-15th March 2009), with a guaranteed prize-pool of €600,000.
As an extra incentive to the best players in the series, 3% of the total prize-pool will be set aside and awarded to the top three players over the whole series, based on points (which are awarded to the top 30 players in each event), meaning that in addition to winning some fat prizes, the top player over the course of the series can win an additional estimated €10k for accumulating more league points than their competitors in the series.
ICOP Medalists additional prizes:
1. ICOP Gold Medallist - 50%
2. ICOP Silver Medallist - 30%
3. ICOP Bronze Medallist - 20%
Satellites for all of the ICOP events will be available in the CelebPoker Poker lobby from the 23rd of February 2009, meaning that no matter how big or small your online bankroll is, you can still take a shot at your cut of at least a cool €600k.
The ICOP Series is expected to smash the €600K Guaranteed over the series, and represents a great opportunity for players to enjoy draw tournaments newly added to CelebPoker, such as Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo and 5 and 7-card stud.
