Go to the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth with Pacific Poker

Share this
It’s not that often that the game of poker is associated with an outdoor rodeo. After all, the two are pretty much opposites. Rodeos normally occur at an outdoor stadium with cowboys being thrown into the dirt by raging bulls while poker usually takes place within the safer confines of a fancy casino or at a desktop computer.

But Pacific Poker has easily been able to make the connection between the two in their new promotion that seeks to send people to the Calgary Stampede Classic Poker Tournament. $450,000 worth of prize money awaits here and the winner will take home $75,000 and the rodeo’s version of a gold bracelet in the “belt buckle”.

Pacific Poker will send players to the Calgary Stampede tournament through the $5,500 prize packages that they are giving away. This includes a buy-in to the Calgary Stampede Classic Final ($3,000), hotel and airfare accommodations, and a pass to what is commonly referred to as “The Great Outdoor Show (and Party) on Earth” in the Calgary Stampede.

While at the Calgary Stampede, you’ll get to bask in a 10 day event that features an excellent rodeo competition, stage shows, a huge carnival, concerts, pancake breakfasts, parades, and chuck wagon races. It’s always a major party!

And to attend it, along with the Classic Poker Tournament, go download Pacific Poker using the bonus code ‘PokerWorks’ to get the 100% deposit bonus up to $400. Then you’ll want to check the schedule at Pacific Poker to find satellites that can get you into the Stampede Poker Classic Qualifier. A person can get into one of these qualifiers for as little as $3!

However, if you’ve got the cash and don’t mind spending a little of it for a chance at Calgary Stampede glory, direct buy-ins to the Stampede Poker Classic Qualifiers are also available. For $220 + $15, one can enter the tournament qualifiers and bypass any of the satellite tournaments.

These Stampede Poker Classic Qualifiers will be held on June 14 at 6:05 p.m. NST and on June 21st and June 28th at 4:00 p.m. NST (ET-1). After that, it’s off to the tournament host in the Stampede Casino where the Stampede Classic runs from July 6th to July 15th. On the 15th, the finals begin and this is where the Pacific Poker prize package places its winning players. Hopefully, you can be one of them.
