Win One of Two $1,400 Packages To Betfair Poker LIVE London
PokerNews and Betfair Poker have come together to create an exclusive promotion that will see two lucky players walk away with a $1,400 package to the upcoming Betfair Poker LIVE London Main Event at the Fox Poker Club on February 17-19.
The packages will be given away to the players who finish first and second in a freeroll that will take place at 19:00 GMT / 20:00 CET on February 4. Entry to this superb freeroll is restricted to those PokerNews players who have earned just 50 Player Points between January 9 and February 1. Player Points are awarded at a rate of 3.6 per $1 in tournament fees and 3.6 per $1 in rake (as per the Essence System) at the cash game tables meaning you can earn a seat in the $2,800 freeroll for less than $14.
Each package consists of:
- A $650 Main Event Buy-in for Betfair Poker LIVE London on February 17
- $750 Travel and Accommodation Allowance
-Betfair's legendary hospitality
The freeroll needs 10 players in order to start but that should not be a problem with such low entry requirements.
Last year's Betfair Poker LIVE London Main Event feature a lesser buy-in than the 2012 edition but the eventual winner still walked away with more than £7,600 for his efforts thanks to the 171-strong crowd that descended on the Fox Poker Club in the heart of British capital.
Those players who download Betfair Poker through PokerNews will also be able to choose their own sign-up bonus of between $50 and a massive $2,500 with only a $20 deposit being necessary, meaning this could be an extremely profitable promotion to participate in.
