$100k Tournament Championship at PaddyPower

Tuesday, 8 January 2013

Anyone who has switched on Sky Channel 861 will have at one time heard Carlo Citrone say that poker is an endless game. While paddypowerpoker.com's latest contest may not run into infinity, it's certainly taking the long view.

Paddy's Tournament Championship is a year-long leader board battle which aims to determine the site's best tournament poker players and there is $100,000 in cash to be won.

Starting this week, players at Paddy Power Poker will be ranked each week on how much they play and how well they perform in multi-table tournaments and sit & go's. The top 30 players each week will win a cash prize with the leader pocketing $100. Monthly Leader board points will be awarded to the top 100 in the table.

$2,000 in cash will be shared by the top 75 players in the Monthly Leader Board with the winner getting $500. What's more, the top 150 get Yearly Leader Board points.

The Yearly Leader Board will award the top 200 players with a share of $50,000 with the overall winner receiving a $6,000 Irish Open 2014 package. The overall champion will also receive a series of Champion Rewards, which include their own bounty tournament, a blog and a chance to formally open the Irish Open 2014.

"Poker players are a very competitive bunch so we thought we'd give them something extra to fight for in 2013, and with $100,000 in free cash to be won, the battle lines have been drawn and we're sure to see the cream rise to the top next year," said Paddy Power, spokesman for the company.

New players can join the race with a 200% first deposit bonus of up to $2,000. Sign up at paddypowerpoker.com.
