SportsBook’s Tour de Poker Race for Over $70,000

Share this
The Tour de France is a cycling road race known worldwide and as a tribute to this prestigious event, Sportsbook.com has put together their very own rendition of the race—poker style! From July 3 to July 25, you can join your fellow poker players in a race against the clock for a share of more than $70,000 in the Tour de Poker.

The Tour de Poker is made up of 21 stages. To complete each stage, a player must earn 1,000 VIP Points by playing at any real money ring games or tournaments. The more you play, the faster you earn and the faster you’ll progress through each stage. The faster you make it through the stages, the more cash you’ll be eligible to win. Any VIP points earned on side-games during the promotional period will not count towards prize requirements for the Tour de Poker.

Be one of the first 50 players to complete all 21 stages of the race and you’ll receive an instant cash prize. Over $35,000 will be awarded, with $2,500 going to the top finisher. But that’s not all. For every stage that you complete in the Tour de Poker, you’ll receive 500 tournament chips that you can use to start the Tour de Poker Final at the end of the month.

The Tour de Poker Final will be held on Saturday, July 31, at 15:00 (poker lobby time) and features a $20,000 prize pool. In order to be eligible, you must complete at least one stage of the Tour de Poker, but the more stages you complete, the more chips you build up. Finish 10 stages and you’ll receive 5,000 chips, and complete all 21 stages of the Tour de Poker and you’ll start the tournament with 10,500 in chips.

In addition to all this, players who have earned 1,000 VIP Points the week prior will be eligible to participate in a special Tour de Poker freeroll held each Sunday during July. Each tournament will feature a $5,000 prize pool and will start at 13:00 (poker lobby time). Here are the details:
 
•    Tournament 1: Sunday, July 11. To be eligible, players must have earned 1,000 points between Saturday, July 3 at 00:01 and Saturday, July 10 at 23:59.
•    Tournament 2: Sunday, July 18. Players must have earned 1,000 points between Saturday, July 10 at 00:01 and Saturday, July 17 at 23:59.
•    Tournament 3: Sunday, July 25. Players must have earned 1,000 points between Saturday, July 17 at 00:01 and Saturday, July 24 at 23:59 in order to be eligible to participate.

Join the race today, because at 23:59 on Sunday July 25 the Tour de Poker VIP points counter will cease recording and any earned after this time will not count towards prize requirements. To view your progress in the Tour de Poker, click on the ‘Player Admin’ button located along the bottom of the poker lobby screen, and then select ‘Tour de Poker’ to view your current stats.
