Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles (PRWEB) July 31, 2008
The World Series of Poker* Europe returns for its second edition this September with bigger prize pools and an extra bracelet in tow, and PokerListings.com players will have 20 exclusive chances to qualify through an upcoming private freeroll at Betfair Poker.
Total freeroll value is $11,000, with 20 seats in the final Betfair $550 WSOPE satellite to be awarded. Freeroll is scheduled for Sept. 3, 2008, and is open to all PokerListings players at Betfair who earn 250 points August 1-31.
The main $550 satellite at Betfair then runs Sept. 7, with 20 massive WSOP Europe main event prize packages up for grabs.
"As the inaugural World Series of Europe showed last year," says Hannah Mayen, media relations director at PokerListings.com, "moving the most storied event in poker across the pond lost nothing to translation.
"The players were absolutely A-list, the atmosphere was equally electric, and the iconic gold bracelet carried the same weight and prestige it always has. It was a seamless transition and an undeniable success, and edition two we can only expect to be more of the same," continued Mayen. "We're delighted to give our players such a premium opportunity to be a part of it and to be involved with a world-class poker room such as Betfair."
