Join ‘Skalie’ at Ladbrokes Poker to Win Your Share of €10,000

Share this
All online poker sites sponsor a team of pros and Ladbrokes Poker is no exception. The latest announcement from Team Ladbrokes is about their newest addition, Jon ‘Skalie’ Kalmar, who has been a dedicated Ladbrokes player for a very long time.  And to celebrate the signing of Kalmar, Ladbrokes is offering a special promotion featuring ‘Skalie’ and giving away €10,000 to boot!

Described as an all-around mad gambler who is skillful at both cash games and tournament Texas Hold 'em, Kalmar also admits to enjoying playing Pai Gow now and then. He has also done very well for himself at the poker tables offline such as his three cashes at the 2008 Five Star Classic and his impressive 5th place finish at the 2007 World Series of Poker Main Event.

To give Kalmar the recognition the Ladbrokes Team thinks he deserves, Skalie now has his very own monthly Leader board and you can join him! When you choose to compete for your top spot on Skalie’s Monthly Leaderboard, your goal will be to find yourself among the top 15 finishers. Then when you achieve that feat, you will be invited to take on Skalie in a heads up tournament where €1000 will be on the line! Oh, and did we mention that the top 30 leader board finishers will each share in over €10,000 worth in cash prizes? The lucky first place finisher on Skalie’s Monthly Leaderboard not only win a seat against Skalie, but will also pocket €1500, while second place will walk away with €1250, and third place will take home €1000!

What’s more, the top 15 place players will also get an invitation by way of pre-registration to a special heads-up FreeRoll Tournament! An additional €750 will be added to this FreeRoll tournament which will be divvied up between the top four players. There will also be a special bonus in the form of a €250 bounty at stake for knocking Skalie out of the tournament! If no one can take Skalie out of the game, the bounty will roll over to the next month’s gig, as will the first place prize money if Skalie manages to win the event.

Now, for the really important information: How do you collect your Leaderboard points? Simply play in the multi-table tournaments that are listed in the Multi-Table Daily Tournament Schedule in the Ladbrokes Poker lobby.  When looking for your tournament, be aware that Freerolls, Heads-Up MTT’s, Satellites; Private Tournaments, Single-Table Tournaments, and Player Point Freerolls do not qualify for this Leaderboard promotion.

The amount of points you get for participating in a tournament will be awarded using a formula which combines three variables. These variable include your finishing position in the tournament (and you must be among the top 10), your buy-in for the tournament, and the number of players in the tournament (a minimum of 30 is required).

So what are you waiting for? Start playing at Ladbrokes Poker today to begin climbing your way to the top of Skalie’s Leaderboard for your opportunity to snag some extra free cash!
