Get Your Ticket! The Open Face Chinese Poker World Championship is Coming!
The Open Face Chinese Poker World Championship is scheduled for December 2015. Everyone is welcome to jump in and see if they can take home the championship and the cash, but the best news is that Tonybet Poker is going to give you the chance to win your way to this incredibly challenging, exciting, and fun competition in the OFC Poker Wars.
It's time to defend the honor of your region in four satellites that are separated by region: North, South, East, and West. Those satellites are going to have their own qualifying tournaments and will decide the 10 players from each region that will compete in a final event.
If you’re a seasoned regular at the OFC tables or a new player, this is the perfect time to test your skill or start from scratch and build your game.
In a recent interview a Tonybet Poker spokesperson said, “It’s a really fun way to get players involved into this exciting game. We want players to come and defend the honor of the region they’re from. Plus it gives even more excitement to root for the ones representing your side in the final event. And the best part is that we’re giving away free tickets to the first four satellites to all new players joining our site.”
Satellites kick off on September 28th and run to October 1, and when the smoke clears, 10 players from each side will be heading to the final event. Make it to the final event, (these tickets are valued at worth €50 each), and you have a shot at being one of two players that are rewarded with €1,100 worth OFC World Championship tickets!
