Very few poker players ever get to the point where they’re playing for $10,000 in a hand. But at SportsBook Poker, any hand could be worth a shot at $10k since they are currently giving away major cash in their Big Bucks promotion. All you have to do is play at the BIG BUCKS cash game tables, and you’ll be eligible to win your way into a private tournament where $10,000 is up for grabs.
Besides playing at the BIG BUCKS tables, the only other requirement you need to meet for this private tournament is getting a 4 of a kind or better in one of these cash games. After you get a 4 of a kind or better, simply e-mail the hand number and User ID to SportsBook at BigBucks@Sportsbook.com. Once SportsBook has confirmed your 4 of a kind or better hand, you will be entered into the Big Bucks final which is slated to take place on September 1st at 10 pm ET.
What’s really cool is that the fewer people there are entered in the tournament, the bigger slice you’ll be taking of the $10,000. The only thing left to do before playing at the Big Bucks tables is signing up at SportsBook Poker through PokerWorks. Signing up through PokerWorks will enable you to take advantage of the 100% deposit bonus up to $1,000.
If you sign up for SportsBook Poker, you’ll also be eligible to participate in the $250,000 Guaranteed tournament that is held every month. The winner of the $250k tourney always walks away with at least $50,000, and oftentimes more. The next $250,000 Guaranteed takes place on August 30th so you’ll want to sign up ASAP to get into this as well.
The $250k Guaranteed and the Big Bucks promotion isn’t the only thing going on at SportsBook though since they are also giving out $7,000 English Poker Open prize packages. The inaugural English Poker Open will be held in Nottingham, England and there is a guaranteed prize pool of $1 million. The final qualifier to win the $7k EPO prize packages will be held on August 30th so that’s just another reason to sign up for SportsBook as soon as you can. There will be plenty of poker satellites and qualifiers running until then; some of the satellites are as cheap as just a few dollars!
If you’d rather stick to ring games then there is plenty of incentive to do that too since SportsBook awards $50,000 in bonus money each month to players. Every Weekly Gold Card race pays the top 50 placers and the top person earns $1,000. To place in the top 50, you just need to play in ring games and pick up the Gold Cards that randomly appear amongst your hole cards. After you start collecting the Gold Cards, just go to the Rewards tab and check the standings to see where you’re at. If you collect the most Gold Cards for the week then you could be in for an extra $1,000!
