About one month ago, the world’s largest online poker guide, PokerListings.com (pokerlistings.com), and online poker room to the stars, Hollywood Poker (hollywoodpoker.com), announced an amazing offer featuring two $18,000 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Freerolls and the chance to play heads-up against legendary actor and poker player James Woods to win four additional (optional) $1,500 WSOP entries. It has since been revealed that just 93 players have qualified for the first of the two events, meaning that, at this moment, the value exceeds $193/player, and there is still plenty of time to qualify.
Innovative online poker guide, PokerListings.com (http://www.pokerlistings.com) and online poker room, Hollywood Poker (http://www.hollywoodpoker.com/promo/poker-listings.html?rid=57&cid=14&aid=170), are sponsoring three lucrative, world-class bonuses for the exclusive benefit of their loyal players. The two powerhouse poker sites are offering all players who sign-up at Hollywood Poker via PokerListings.com links the opportunity to win two $18,000 WSOP prize packages and to compete heads-up against renowned actor and poker player James Woods for four additional WSOP seats. PokerListings.com and Hollywood Poker are also co-sponsoring a special sign-up bonus.
It was recently revealed that just 93 players have qualified for the first of the two $18,000 WSOP Freerolls, assigning an exceptional value of $193/player. Based on past experience, PokerListings.com is estimating that the value-per-player is likely to increase as a large percentage of the total number of qualifiers will not show up to compete on game day. There is still plenty of time left to qualify for the first $18,000 WSOP Freeroll, which award entry to every player who registers at Hollywood Poker via PokerListings.com links and earns 500 player points by March 31, 2006.
The winner of the tournament will be awarded a $15,000 prize package that includes the $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em Main Event buy-in plus $3,000 in cash for travel and accommodation expenses. In addition, they will advance to compete heads-up against James Woods for additional entries into two $1,500 WSOP events worth a total of $3,000. Players who finish in spots 2-18 will divide the remaining $2,000. The first $18,000 WSOP Freeroll will take place in mid-April, 2006.
The second $18,000 WSOP Freeroll is scheduled to run in late June, 2006. Eligible players will have signed-up at Hollywood Poker via PokerListings.com links and earned 500 player points between April 1 and June 15, 2006. First place finisher will receive the $15,000 WSOP prize package, including the $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em Main Event buy-in, $3,000 in cash for travel and accommodation expenses, and the chance to win two additional $1,500 WSOP entries for a total value of $3,000 by competing heads-up against James Woods at Hollywood Poker. An extra $2,000 will be awarded to those players who place in spots 2-18.
On top of that, PokerListings.com and Hollywood Poker are offering a world-exclusive $200 sign-up bonus at 200% deposit match. Players must deposit a minimum of $100 in order to fully benefit from this bonus offer.
