Students Freeroll Your Way to the WSOP

Share this
Being a college student today has many privileges. Obvious benefits include frat parties, co-ed dorms, skipping early classes, not signing up for early classes at all, quarter beers at the local campus bar and an unlimited supply of home games to participate in, all hours of the night, and now students are being rewarded online too!

Life of Sports Inc. recently announced the launch of its University Poker Championship free roll tournaments. British players can take advantage of this free roll at Cake Poker while players in the U.S. and Canada will participate at PokerStars.

U.S. students playing at PokerStars will be vying for a top prize that includes a seat into a European Poker Tour Event and they will have their tuition paid for a year. Students in the U.K. will be playing for a seat at the 2008 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas and they too will have their tuition paid for an entire year. Both of these grand prizes include travel expenses.

Poker Stars’ spokesperson, Carly Sawers said, “We’re excited to be involved in this event because it offers students an opportunity to further their education with the free tuition and also provides them with a chance to visit Europe and play in an event on the European Poker Tour.”

What’s the catch? There really isn’t one. But remember, you have to be a registered student at an accredited institution to play. I can’t think of a more enjoyable way to further my education.

Cake Poker and PokerStars are currently running weekly qualifiers.

Download PokerStars and make sure you download Cake Poke r too, and get ready to play in a qualifier. The top three finishers each week will play in the finals in April. It’s that easy!!

Students, this is an opportunity you cannot afford to miss.
