and we can only imagine how many twists and turns are to come.
Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles (PRWEB) June 3, 2008
The most infamous poker series in the world has officially begun, but there are still plenty of chances to win a seat in the biggest spectacle of them all - the 2008 World Series of Poker* Main Event - through PokerListings.com.
Private, limited-field freerolls for PokerListings players run right until June 22 at several top poker rooms, with 15 Main Event prize packages still available - bringing the grand total in 2008 Main Event packages offered through PokerListings to over $1 million.
"Our 2008 WSOP* freerolls," says Hannah Mayen, media relations director at PokerListings.com, "have, far and away, been our most well received, most player-friendly and most lucrative ever."
"Playing fields for many of the events have averaged around 100 players, which means with the added cash in the prize pools close to half the field is getting paid in some of these events - making the player value literally unheard of in online poker.
"Over $750,000 in exclusive, once-in-a-lifetime Main Event packages is already in the pockets of our players, and we're far from done yet."
A few of the most prominent freerolls still available for PokerListings.com players:
1) $60,000 in freerolls at Titan Poker (http://www.pokerlistings.com/titan-poker/bonus-code). Dates are June 15 and 22, with the top two players in each winning $12.5k Main Event packages including the $10k buy-in plus travel expenses; $5k in cash is spread to the rest of the prize pool.
2) $60,000 in freerolls at PokerStars (http://www.pokerlistings.com/poker-stars/bonus-code), including an open $12.5k freeroll on June 7 with absolutely no qualification required. Winner takes a $12.5k package for the 2008 Main Event including the $10k buy-in plus travel expenses.
3) $60,000+ in Main Event freerolls at Full Tilt Poker (http://www.pokerlistings.com/full-tilt-poker/bonus-code). Dates are June 8, 15 and 22, with two $12.5k prize packages up for grabs in the 'Last Chance' satellites on June 15 & 22.
