The PokerNews PartyPoker $9,000 Spring Rush was well-received by everyone who competed across the various games, and the feedback from the players was great.
The $100 Daily Freerolls saw scores of players walk away with cash prizes, while "AndrewCzech", "chinchidel1," "mattej555" and "leatFishes" won Weekly Phone Giveaway tournaments and each should now be in possession of new mobile phones!
The $2,500 added tournament was even better value than anyone anticipated, with only 62 players buying in by the time registration closed. The top 10 finishers won prize money, with "gadragos" the unfortunate soul who burst the money bubble and was the last player to go home empty-handed.
$2,500 Added Tournament Results
As you can see from the table above, the cash prizes were significant and the winner took home over $800, going to show the effects adding $2,500 to a prize pool can have!
There was also $1,000 set aside for the top 10 performers across the promotions. Every time a player competed in one of the $100 freerolls, the phone giveaway tournament of the $2,500 added event, they were awarded leaderboard points. The top 10 points earners across the promotion shared $1,000 in cash, as shown in the table below:
PartyPoker and PokerNews thanks everyone who played in the Spring Rush promotion and congratulates those who profited from this amazing promotion.
PartyPoker is aware of a few technical problems that prevented some players from competing in some $100 freerolls and is working on a form of compensation for those affected.

Have you won your WSOP yet?
The 2013 World Series of Poker begins on May 29 and you could find yourself in the thick of the action, thanks to PartyPoker and its WSOP promotions.
Between now and June 16, PartyPoker is running satellite tournaments that eventually award one of two WSOP packages. There is at least one $2,500 WSOP side event package and a WSOP Main Event package to be won every week. Have you won yours yet?
Every Sunday at 14:50 ET until June 16 there will be a $700+$50 WSOP satellite on PartyPoker that will award 1 in 20 players a $14,000 2013 WSOP Package! One package is guaranteed, but we believe there will be more given away as the WSOP draws ever closer. Each Main Event package consists of
- $10,000 WSOP Main Event buy-in
- $2,000 in spending money
- Hotel accommodation in Las Vegas for 10 nights
Also on Sundays, but at the slightly later time of 15:45 ET, a $275+$25 Las Vegas Experience satellite takes place in which one $5,000 package is guaranteed. The $5,000 package consists of:
- $2,500 WSOP side event buy-in
- $1,650 in spending money
- Hotel accommodation in Las Vegas for seven nights
Don't be disheartened if the main satellites are out of your price range, because PartyPoker is running plenty of qualifier tournaments that feed into them. These qualifiers cost between $1 and $80 to enter, although there are a number of daily freerolls in the lobby, too.
Take on the world and become poker's next superstar by qualifying for the 2013 WSOP with PartyPoker. You don't want to miss out!
