Knock Out Carl Froch

Tuesday, 10 November 2015

Online poker players are being offered the chance to do what many a boxer has tried and failed; knock out multiple world champion Carl Froch.

The middleweight great is taking part in a special event on December 13 to mark the launch of the new partypoker Power Series, which are to be a succession of weekly tournaments featuring reduced buy-ins alongside prize pools guaranteed to reach a total of at least $1.25 million.

“I’ve been mentally preparing for this tournament just the same as any of my world title fights,” said 38-year-old Froch.

“I intend to win and, as the ambassador for partypoker, I best not let the side down. I love the new partypoker guarantees and hope it will attract a new audience to playing poker online. Poker For The People is what we’re aiming for; anyone can have a go and if you fancy your luck against me then bring it on, I’ll see you at the table in December.”

The partypoker Power Series offers four buy-in levels with something for everyone, from players with flyweight bankrolls right up to the mightiest super heavyweights.

partypoker Power Series Tournaments:

Featherweight - Buy-in: $2.20-$11. Guarantee: $194,000.

Middleweight - Buy-in: $22-$55. Guarantee: $340,000.

Heavyweight - Buy-in: $109. Guarantee: $565,000.

High-Roller - Buy-in: $350-$1,050. Guarantee: $185,000.

To qualify for the one-off tournament featuring Nottingham-born Froch, simply get playing partypoker Power Series events between now and December 6. The top 99 qualifiers will each win a seat in the special $100,000 kick-off contest on December 13.

“The new partypoker Power Series guarantees are the next step in our Poker For The People strategy, creating a format that is easily accessible to all with knockout value for every level of player,” said Golan Shaked, Games Director for partypoker.

“It’s great to have Carl on board. He is one of the world’s best sportsmen and bringing his competitive spirit to the poker table will be a great test for our players.”
