Welcome back gentle readers to this week's edition of the PartyPoker Weekly! Time is rapidly running out if you plan on bagging a seat to the upcoming WPT Vienna festival or want to take advantage of the fantastic Gladiator promotion, so get involved now!
Last Chance To Qualify For WPT Vienna
The Vienna leg of the World Poker Tour promises to be one of the biggest events on this year's European circuit and you can win an exclusive package worth $7,000 through PartyPoker; though time is rapidly running out.
You only have until March 25 if you want to get your hands on one of the $7,000 WPT Vienna packages. The very last satellite tournament kicks off at precisely 15:20 EDT this Sunday. The buy-in for the WPT Vienna Satellite is $375 and there will be one package for every $7,000 in the prize pool. If $375 is out of your bankroll constraints then there are scores of feeder tournaments running between now and Sunday afternoon that have buy-ins ranging from completely free up to $40.
Each package consists of:
- $4,700 WPT Vienna Main Event Buy-in
- Hotel accommodation for six nights
- $900 spending money
Last year's WPT Vienna Main Event attracted a bumper field of 555 players and created a prize pool of €1,776,000, and the lion's share of it finished up in the bankroll of Dimitry Gromov, who scooped the €447,840 first-place prize. This year's could be even larger because during the festival there will also be the $125,000 buy-in Premier League and the 48-hour Big Game taking place, so some of the biggest names in the business will be in the Austrian capital — will you be?
Gladiator Promo In Full Swing
The brilliant Gladiator promotion is in full swing and a number of PartyPoker players are on course to win an exclusive $8,000 World Poker Tour package!
Until midnight on March 31 PartyPoker players will to be heavily rewarded just for playing their usual cash games and tournaments. The more they play the better the prizes they will earn, it really is as simple as that. For example, earn just a single PartyPoker point on five separate days up to March 31, and gain entry to a $500 freeroll but earn a single point on 25 different days and that freeroll's prize pool swells to $2,500.
It's not just tournament entries either because there are also cash prizes up for grabs too, ranging from $10 all the way up to $4,000 for those high volume grinders who earn 1,200 PartyPoints on 25 days. But the ultimate prize, for those who show they have what it takes to be a Gladiator, is an $8,000 package to any World Poker Tour Main Event of their choosing! Winning this package will not be easy because you have to earn 1,200 PartyPoints on 30 days! Are you still on course for a WPT package? We'd love to hear from you.
PartyPoker also realizes that some of their valued customers have the skills to grind out an unbelievable amount of cash game hands and tournaments so they have a special section just for them. If anyone manages to earn 1,500 PartyPoints on 40 days from when the promotion kicked off up to midnight on April 15 then they will pick up a $15,000 package to the 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event where they could walk away with millions of dollars!

Each and every week you can boost your bankroll with a share of $5,000 thanks to the ongoing Bankroll Booster promotion. The $5,000 guaranteed freeroll runs every Sunday at 14:30 EDT and you can grab a seat into it absolutely free of charge!

Catching Up With Ian Frazer
When you are part of a stable of professional players that includes the legendary Mike Sexton, the delectable Kara Scott and the infamous Tony G it is often quite difficult to find yourself getting your far share of airtime. But British PartyPoker sponsored pro Ian Frazer, a man with a mouth that could give Tony G a run for its money, will have his chance to shine at the upcoming Premier League in Vienna as he has won himself a $13,000 package to the live feeder.
Dany Willis of PartyPoker caught up with "The Raiser" last week and asked him about all things poker, football and Macau. Read the full interview over on the PartyPoker Blog.
