Who’ll Make It Into Your Team For The partypoker UK Team Challenge?
If you’re reading this article it is safe to assume that you play online poker. So the question is, do you have friends who also play tournaments online and are they good enough to help you win a share of at least £30,000 and maybe up to £100,000? Well, are they?
Running from August 1 through to September 30, 2015, is the inaugural partypoker UK Team Challenge. This unique event pits you and your team against others over the course of two months culminating in a live final held at Dusk Till Dawn (DTD), Nottingham.
The concept of the UK Team Challenge is simple:
- Choose between one and three friends to make up your team.
- Register your team at the partypoker UK Team Challenge page.
- Play in as many qualifying tournaments between August 1 and September 30, 2015 to earn Leaderboard Chip.
- Earn at least 250,000 Leaderboard Chips throughout the challenge to be invited to the live final.
- Win a share of at least £30,000 but maybe as much as £100,000.
- Brag to your friends!
Earning Leaderboard Chips
Once you have your team selected and registered, it is time to start earning Leaderboard Chips. You do this by entering the $5.50 Daily Major: $1,000 Gtd Micro and the $27.50 Daily Major: $5,000 Gtd Mini that run online at partypoker every night at 8:00 p.m. BST.
Everyone receives Leaderboard Chips for playing in these tournaments, but it’s those reaching the final tables that are rewarded the most with the winner of the $27.50 Daily Major: $5,000 Gtd Mini walking away with 100,000 precious Leaderboard Chips.
You and your team can also give your Leaderboard Chips a significant boost by completing the four special Booster Missions. Each of these missions, which you need to opt into separately, award 5,000 chips when completed, so if all four of your team complete all four, that’s 80,000 Leaderboard Chips right there.
