Ladbrokes Poker Million VIII updates

Ladbrokes Poker Million VIII updates

Friday, 28 November 2008

The inaugural LEOCOP IV Masters Event took place online last week – an exclusive invitation event, it was open only to the top 80 players on the Ladbrokes poker leaderboard.

Kevin Allen, better known as GamblingPays online, used this tournament to win an exclusive seat to the semi-finals of the Poker Million VII worth $120,000. This guarantees $20,000 prize money but also the opportunity to fight to the December 12th final table and a shot at a $1,000,000 first prize.

Kevin said: "I'm over the moon. I won the LEOCOP Pot Limit event a couple of weeks ago and didn't even realise that this put me in the running for an invitation to the LEOCOP Masters and ultimately a shot at the Poker Million Crown, until my mate pointed it out the next day. This sort of thing just doesn't happen to me and everything from this moment on is icing on the cake. I'm really excited to think that I'll be playing in a tournament with over a million in the prize pool especially as I always watch the Ladbrokes Poker Million on TV. I can't believe that this time round instead of watching, I'll be in it."

Kevin will be up against the likes of Barney and Ross Boatman of the Hendon Mob, Ciaran O’Leary and Soccer AM co-presenter Max Rushden. Perhaps he can try to outdo colleague Helen Chamberlain’s impressive $500,000 score.

Edward Ihre MD of Ladbrokes Poker said: "Its a great opportunity for any player and possibly a position they can use to their advantage, after all Kevin has not played a heat, so no one has a clue as to how he will approach the game! There is one last chance to win a satellite to the Ladbrokes Poker Million semi-finals and that is this Saturday, although you should hurry, you have to win one of the daily Chase the Chair Freerolls and they close on Friday."
