Ladbrokes Poker is on the lookout for the next big poker star, and it could be you if you literally play your cards right. You could win a £10,000 sponsorship package.
In May 2012 everyone who qualifies for the Grass Roots promotion will be entered into a £100 buy-in tournament. If you cash in that event, you get to keep all the cash but the seven players who go deepest will progress to the next round that takes place in June.
The seven winningest players from the £100 buy-in tournament, plus seven wildcards chosen for their activity in the community in other areas, will be entered into a £300 buy-in freezeout. The top four players and four wildcards from that event will be entered into a £500 buy-in event where the top four players will make it through to the penultimate round of action.
Those four lucky players will then be entered into a £1,000 buy-in freezeout and whoever goes the deepest will be awarded an exclusive £10,000 sponsorship package!
There are five routes you can take to win a seat in the initial Grass Roots tournament: playing cash games, single table tournaments, wining a seat to a satellite by playing 300 raked cash game hands, by going deep in four specific online tournaments, or by the grand final satellite. For full details check out the dedicated £25,000 Ladbrokes Grass Roots promotion page.
This could be your chance to be recognized in the poker world, a stepping stone to a career as a professional poker player. Grab this opportunity with both hands and become the next big star Ladbrokes is hoping to find.
