With only two and a half months left to the start of 2008's first PokerNews Cup, PokerNews continues to give its players many exclusive opportunities to play at the PokerNews Cup in Salzburg, Austria for free. Officially declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996, Salzburg has more than just a world class casino on offer. It is here that influential and prolific composer, Wolfgang Mozart was born and raised, and here that the Oscar-winning 1965 classic, 'The Sound of Music' was filmed. This year, Salzburg was also officially named a EURO 2008 Host City for the 13th UEFA European Football Championships. The city will continue to shine when the PokerNews Cup Austria runs at the Concord Card Casino from April 23-27. The five day tournament features a €650 Main Event and two additional side events. Over 300 European players are expected at the Main Event and PokerNews is giving you the chance to join them!
