PokerNews and Duplicate Poker are inviting PokerNews players to play in ten exclusive $5000 PokerNews Cup Australia freerolls!
The PokerNews Cup is the first-ever live tournament to be held by PokerNews, and will take place from October 21-29, 2008 at the Crown Casino in Melbourne, Australia. The three-day Main Event has a guaranteed first prize of AUD$250,000 and over 400 local and international players are expected to attend.
Each $5000 PokerNews Cup Australia package consists of entry to the Main Event, six nights accommodation at the Crown Promenade Hotel, and $1500 for travel and expenses. Players will also receive invites to special team functions.
To be eligible to play in these exclusive freerolls, players need to download Duplicate Poker through the special PokerNews links and make a deposit. Once players have made their first deposit, they will be granted access to all ten freerolls!
Players will be automatically registered for all of the freerolls – making this one of the easiest ways to win your way to Australia for free!
On top of this already amazing promotion, Duplicate Poker is also offering PokerNews players a 100% up to $100 First Deposit Bonus. Simply sign up through our links and make your first deposit to take advantage of this great offer.
When you play at Duplicate Poker you may notice things are a little different to normal. Duplicate Poker is a skill-based version of Texas Holdem, where players in the same seat at different tables are dealt the same cards each and every hand. You are scored based on how you play each hand as opposed to the other players in the same seat at different tables. Because this version of poker is recognised as a skill game, US residents from almost all states are able to participate, and deposit by credit card.
The first $5000 PokerNews Cup freeroll is on Sunday July 29 at 15:00 EST. For dates and times of all our Duplicate Poker freerolls, make sure to check out our Freerolls Page – and hopefully we'll see you in Australia!
