HollywoodPoker has a nice event for new players at the site called the Red Carpet Welcome Freeroll. This is a weekly $100 tournament that is just for new players only and gives you a chance of playing against other new players, with the idea being playing people of the same ability. Obviously this isn't always going to work as there will be novice poker players as well as players who are more experienced but just new to the site.
Each new player gets 4 tickets to the freerolls when they make a deposit at Hollywood Poker. The freerolls are run at alternating times so that everybody gets a chance, 8pm EST one week and 8pm GMT the next.
There are also 11 daily freerolls at Hollywood where you can win your way through a series of games to a $1000 freeroll. It's a bit of a long winded way round but at least it's fre and there are plenty of chances to keep trying if you don't win the first time.
I'm still looking for the best deal for you for the buy-in tournament (details below), please sign up in the form if you haven't done it yet!
Freeroll News 24th August 2008:
Hello everybody, it's good to be back! OK I'm a little bit later than I planned to be but there was this hurricane in Florida (apparently happens quite a lot :-) ) and it held our flights up a bit.
Anyway back from the sunshine (and rain) and no more all-you-can-eat buffets for another year, to the serious business of poker.
Last time I asked you all if you'd be interested in playing a $1 buy-in game which I was going to set up as an experiment to see what kind of response I got. It seems there are quite a few of you that are very interested in this so it looks like it's going to go ahead very soon.
There's still time to add your name on the form below if you are interested (note that there's no commitment by doing so, it's purely so I know how big a game we've got - the bigger the more prize money I can ask for!).
Freeroll News 3rd August 2008:
Poker Host has a good $100 freeroll every day at 8pm EST. The top 10 players get paid out and there are no requirements to play whatsoever.
There's an unusual twist to these freerolls as you can play 25 Regular Raked Hands within the previous 24 hours before the tournament to earn yourself 750 extra starting chips.
Check out the Poker Host daily freerolls here!
Remember to let me know if you are interested in the Love Texas Holdem $200 poker games I told you abou last week (see details below). Fill in your name in the form below to let me know you're in!
I'm taking a week off next week so there will be no new Update. See you all in a fortnight!
