$100k rake race at GR88.com starts on Friday

Wednesday, 30 May 2012

The most high profile races this summer are likely to be at the this year's London Olympics but poker players can get in on the race action too, and bag some cash in the process.

The Race To Riches from GR88.com starts this Friday and will be rewarding players with $100k. Four week-long rake races will run throughout June with each awarding $25K to the players at the top of the leaderboard that week. Competitors can get a leg up in the race by taking part in special tournaments that will award double points.

Players automatically earn points and make their way up the leaderboard just by playing in any real money ring games or tournaments at GR88.com. 400 players each week will receive cash prizes totalling $25,100 with the player at the top of the weekly leaderboard bagging $2000. The second place player will pocket $1300 with $900 going to the third place player.

Weekly races begin June 1st, June 8th, June 15th and June 22nd with players able to check their progress on a live leaderboard.

Players taking part in certain tournaments will see their points multiplied by 1.1 to 2 times, full details of which can be found below. The more designated tournaments played, the higher the multiplier.
