Download Betfair Poker and win a seat to the upcoming Betfair Poker LIVE London Main Event!
The outstanding Betfair Poker LIVE tour drops anchor in London, United Kingdom, from Feb. 17 through 19 at the Fox Poker Club and thanks to our exclusive promotion, you could win one of two packages worth $1,400 each.
All you need to do in order to stand a chance of winning a package is earn 50 Player Points between now and Feb. 1, and a seat to a freeroll that has two packages up for grabs will be yours. 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.
Once at least ten people have met the entry requirements, the PokerNews exclusive freeroll will be given the green light and will take place at 2000 CET on Feb. 4 and will award the first and second place finishers with a Betfair Poker LIVE London package worth $1,400.
Each package consists of:
- $650 Main Event buy-in for Betfair Poker LIVE London on Feb. 17
- $750 travel and accommodation allowance
- Betfair's legendary hospitality
The Betfair Poker LIVE Main Events are unique in that they are all played to a "bounty hunter" format, meaning players do not even have to make it through to the money places in order win some cash! $100 out of each player's buy-in is placed on their head as a bounty and is given to whoever eliminates them from the tournament, adding a dynamic not seen on any other poker tour's Main Event.
Last year's Betfair Poker LIVE London Main Event attracted 171 players, creating a prize pool of £39,330. Finnish player Arttu Pitkakangas won the event, taking home the £7,630 first-place prize. How big will the prize pool swell to this year?
Being able to play in a freeroll with a $2,800 prize pool for just 50 Player Points would usually be enough value for most poker players but Betfair has decided to add even more to the promotion in the form of its Betfair Poker EDGE.
Any player who funds their Betfair Poker account by the time Day 1a kicks and then goes on to win Betfair Poker LIVE London will receive a complimentary $1,400 package to the next Betfair Poker LIVE event! Furthermore, be the unfortunate player to burst 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.
Remember that this promotion is only open to PokerNews players who download Betfair Poker through our links. New players will be able to choose their own sign-up bonus of between $50 and $2,500 with no deposit being necessary giving you even more reasons to sign up today.
