Betfair Poker is hosting a live event in London this February and PokerWorks is giving you the chance to enter the tournament for free! All you need to do is win one of our special online qualifiers that reward two $1,400 Betfair Poker LIVE packages. And the best part is that the entrance to the online tournament qualifier is absolutely FREE!
On February 4th at 20:00 CET the PokerNews exclusive freeroll will run on Betfair Poker giving away as many as two Betfair Poker LIVE packages worth $1,400 each and only those who sign up to Betfair via PokerWorks will be able to enter the freeroll*.
The Betfair Poker LIVE takes place at the Fox Poker Club in London, UK, between February 17th and 19th with the top players going home with thousands of Pounds in their pockets. Want to be one of them? It's easy – you just need to download Betfair Poker through PokerWorks, get a new account and start playing online poker.
Once you do that, the last thing on your list is to collect 50 Player Points before February 1st – you will be rewarded with a ticket to the final satellite as soon as you complete the task. You will receive 3.6 Player Points for every $1 you pay in tournament fees as well as every $1 paid in rake when playing cash games.
The final $2,800 freeroll with two $1,400 Betfair Poker LIVE packages on the table will take off February 4th. However, the freeroll will only take place if at least 10 players meet the requirements, so be sure to tell all your friends about this incredible promotion!
The Betfair Poker LIVE package includes:
• $650 Main Event buy-in
• $750 for travel and accommodation
One thing that is different in the Betfair Poker LIVE Main Event from any other big poker tournament around is that it's played in a unique “bounty hunter” format. The idea is that $100 from every player's buy-in is a bounty on their head and whoever sends them to the rail, gets the cash. This way players don't need to make it the very top of the tournament just to get paid. In 2011 the event gathered a prize pool of almost £40,000 with the winner Arttu Pitkakangas from Finland taking home Main Event first place prize of £7,630.
To put yourself into the 2012 Betfair Poker LIVE Main Event for free you just need to sign up to Befair Poker via PokerWorks and collect 50 Player Points before February 1st. Download Betfair Poker, register a new account, and receive our very special bonus ranging from $50 to $2,500 – no deposit required!
Plus, Betfair has prepared a special treat - the Betfair Poker EDGE - for all their online users who enter the Betfair Poker LIVE in London. Should a player with a Betfair Poker account funded prior to the start of the tournament end up winning the Main Event, they will be rewarded with a $1,400 package to the next Betfair Poker LIVE event! There's more: be the unfortunate player that bursts the bubble and you will receive a bottle of champagne and a $120 ticket in your Betfair Poker account that can be used in one of the Betfair Poker LIVE online weekly qualifiers.
