"awakened888" and "ViaFerrata" Won Two PokerNews Cup Packages At Unibet Poker! 0001

If you haven't already heard the news, the PokerNews Cup has returned, celebrating its 8th anniversary from Feb. 2 to Feb. 8 at the King's Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic.

This edition of the PokerNews Cup promises to be the best one yet, featuring an amazing €250 buy-in Main Event with a HUGE €200,000 guaranteed prize pool!

Our friends at Unibet Poker just ran a 45-day rake race ending on Jan. 15 which will send two of our readers to Czech Republic in style with two packages that include:

  • €250 Main Event seat to the PokerNews Cup Main Event
  • €250 paid into your Unibet account for flight and spending money.
  • Three-nights accommodation at the King's Hotel

Winners of the Unibet Poker PokerNews Cup Rake Race

From December 1, 2014 to January 15, 2015, 260 PokerNews readers raced for their chance at a PokerNews Cup package at Unibet Poker.

Congrats to "awakened888" for crushing the competition and winning a package to participate to the Cup thanks to the remarkable 3,448.47 leaderboard points he earned during the marathon competition.

While first place wasn't that close of a competition, the race for the second PokerNews Cup package being awarded was close until the end.

Congrats to the second place finisher, "ViaFerrata", for edging out by less than 300 leaderboard points third place finisher, "Krayzie_", to join "awakened888" and other qualifiers and direct buy-in players to compete in the upcoming Pokernews Cup in Czech Republic in less than a month.

Here is a complete look at the top ten players on the rake race leaderboard.
