London, England (PRWEB) January 9, 2009
From 1st February until 31st March 2009, CelebPoker.com (a UK Poker Room with a EU Licence) is offering players the opportunity to get rich and to become one of the stars of live poker at the prestigious high-stakes San-Remo Main Event (18-23rd April). Players on UK poker site Celebpoker.com can qualify for an online poker tournament with Lucrative Sponsorship Packages as prizes, by simply playing on the CelebPoker poker site.
Three €6,500 packages to the San Remo Main Event are up for grabs for the winners of the "Team CelebPoker" online grand final on April 12th, with a runner up prize of €500 paid out for the 4th Place finisher.
The Italian San-Remo event made its debut last year with a massive field at Casino San Remo. Every seat in the house sold out as 701 players forked out €5,000 (or qualified for the event online) to compete for €3.1 million in cash. Young American poker player Jason Mercier rose to the top to capture the title and €869,000 in one of the final table battles of the season. This year the organizers have increased the player cap to 800 players, meaning an extra 99 seats are available compared to last year's tournament potentially adding an additional €495,000 to the prize-pool.
The 2009 San-Remo Main event has a buy-in of €5,250 with an expected prize-pool of €4,000,000 (with an estimated prize of over €1,000,000 for the winner!)
