Included are a $10,000 cash freeroll plus two shots at all-inclusive packages to step to the felt with the high-rollers on the burgeoning PokerStars.com Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT).
"For those who may have missed out on the first, groundbreaking season of the Asia Pacific Poker Tour," says Hannah Mayen, media relations director at PokerListings.com, "I assure them they do not want to miss out on Season 2.
"With a new event in New Zealand and bigger guaranteed cash prizes than ever before, this is another great example of PokerStars embracing the global nature of the game and leading the way into poker's future.
"For our players, this is a fantastic chance to be a part of it and to play with some of the world's best in some of the world's most exotic and luxurious places."
All PokerListings.com players at PokerStars (signed up through a PokerListings link), new or existing, are eligible to play in both upcoming APPT freerolls. The first is a $7,000 APPT Seoul freeroll scheduled for Aug. 9, 2008, at 3 p.m. (EST).
Players need to earn just 100 FPPs at PokerStars July 1-31 to qualify to play. Freeroll winner earns an all-inclusive package including travel, accommodation and main event buy-in for the Asia Pacific Poker Tour stop in Seoul, South Korea, scheduled for Sept. 26-28, 2008.
The second freeroll is an $8,000 APPT Macau freeroll, set to go Aug. 16, 2008, at 3 p.m. (EST). All PokerListings.com players who earn 250 FPPs at PokerStars July 1-31 are eligible to play.
Winner earns an all-inclusive package including travel, accommodation and the main event buy-in for the Asia Pacific Poker Tour stop in Macau, People's Republic of China, starting Sept. 1, 2008.
"With a 2007 APPT Macau final table that featured Liz Lieu, Joe Hachem and Bertrand "ElkY" Grospelier," Mayen adds, "there's no doubt this event will be a major draw for the top pros. And with buzz growing as we speak, it would be surprising if the top prize didn't exceed the $222,640 Dinh Le earned for his win last year.
"It's guaranteed to be an incredible experience, regardless, and we wish all of our players the best of luck."
August is then capped off with another high-value $10,000 cash freeroll exclusive to PokerListings players. Freeroll date is Aug. 30, with 1,000 FPPS from July 1-31 to qualify to play.
