February 4th is the day that should be marked with big, green dollar signs on your calendar - that's when two PokerWorks’ players will be rewarded with $1,400 Betfair Poker LIVE London Packages. In cooperation with Betfair Poker and PokerNews.com, PokerWorks is running an exclusive freeroll* with not one, but two packages to the prestigious live Betfair Poker event in London. The Main Event of the tournament takes off February 17th and you can play it for free! The only thing you need to do is finish in one of the two top spots in the PokerWorks' exclusive freeroll running on Betfair Poker.
The requirements for entering this tournament are simple – download Betfair Poker via PokerWorks, get a new account and collect 50 Player Points playing cash games and tournaments. The qualification deadline is February 1st which means you still have more than a week to meet the requirements and get yourself into the $2,800 freeroll. Once you do this there will be only one step left to take – win the tournament and collect a free trip and entry to Betfair Poker LIVE!
The Betfair Poker LIVE Package includes:
- $650 Main Event buy-in for Betfair Poker LIVE London
- $750 for travel and accommodation
Collecting Player Points on Betfair Poker is easy – you get 3.6 points per $1 in rake in cash games as well as 3.6 points per $1 in tournament fees. To enter the $2,800 Betfair Poker LIVE London freeroll you would just have to play for $14 in rake – and the ticket is yours. All players that earn 50 points by the end of the qualification period will receive tickets to the free tournament.
The Betfair Poker LIVE London Main Event takes place at the Fox Poker Club in London, UK, from February 17th to 19th featuring the unusual, but very intriguing “bounty hunter” format. The $100 from each player's buy-in will be rewarded as a bounty to anyone who eliminates that player. This means you can get out of the event with your pockets full of cash even if you don't make it to the money.
In 2011 Betfair Poker LIVE London Main Event gathered 171 players generating a prize pool of £39,330. The top 26 players shared the cash with the biggest chunk – £7,630 going to Arttu Pitakangas from Finland. In the final heads-up battle Pitakangas defeated Portugal's Hugo Crus who went home with £5,900.
So all you need to do to enter this year's Betfair Poker London event for free is download Betfair Poker via PokerWorks and collect 50 Player Points. Once you’ve earned 50 Player Points you will receive a ticket to the Betfair Poker LIVE London Freeroll taking place on February 4th where you have the chance to win your own $1,400 package to the live event.
