Set your alarms for 10:00 p.m. CET on Aug. 2 because that is when the cards are in the air in the PokerNews Cup satellite at 888poker. This exciting freeroll is only open to 888poker players who created their accounts via PokerNews links, so the size of the field should be quite small despite there being €1,800 in value to be had.
Although the tournament is free to enter, it is possible to make up to two rebuys in the first hour of play. These rebuys are available at the bargain price of $1 each and once the rebuy period is over, you can buy a 6,000-chip add-on for the bargain price of only $2.
The top three finishers will help themselves to a €600 PokerNews Cup package, which includes:
- The €250 buy-in to the 2017 PokerNews Cup Main Event
- €110 paid into your account to help with travel expenses
- Six nights' accommodation at the fantastic King's Hotel
If you already have an 888poker account you created via PokerNews links then you can simply register for the freeroll. If you do not already have an 888poker account, download one via PokerNews and you will receive a free $88 just for creating your account ( free £20 in the UK). When you come to make a deposit, 888poker will match it 100 percent up to a maximum of $888, which is more than twice the size of the current bonus offered for signing up to 888poker directly.
The 2017 PokerNews Cup is a €250 buy-in tournament with a massive €255,000 guaranteed prize pool. The event takes place at the lavish King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic between Aug. 16-21 and is one of Europe’s must-play events. If you don’t manage to win a seat to the 2017 PokerNews Cup, the affordable buy-in means that you won’t be too much out of pocket if you make your own way to the King’s Casino; we hope to see you there one way or the other.
