Poker Freeroll News July 2008

If you've been a reader of the newsletter for any length of time, you might have noticed that I am becoming a bit disillusioned with poker freerolls. Since the USA legislation kicked in, most of the big prize games have been lost and now there are people playing for their share of a $10 pot at some sites.

Freeroll News 27th July 2008

In my opinion there is a better way.

Low buy-in tournaments where you can get in for $1 or less are replacing the big money freerolls of a couple of years ago. A 1000 player game therefore has a pot of at least $1000, with the poker site running the game usually throwing ina couple of hundred in "added" prize money.

Now this is what I'm leading up to. I want to stage an "added" money game where I will put in the money. It would be a minimum of $100 but hopefully at least $200, the money I put in would be entirely dependant on how many players were interested in taking part.

The conditions would be that the entrance fee would be around $1, therefore you would need to sign up and make the minimum deposit to the site where the game was being played.

So the question is are you interested in playing? You don't need to commit to anything right now but if you would be interested in principal, just leave your name and email address in the form below.

I'll get back to you next week with the results.


Freeroll News 20th July 2008:

Everest Poker has long been one of the biggest poker sites on the internet and now they have a freeroll to match!

Their $2,500 Bankroll Builder Freeroll is a special promotion which is just perfect for beginners who want a way to build their bankroll fast.

You can qualify for the $2,500 weekly final by entering one of the two daily qualifiers below or by entering the final directly.

Beginners Only Daily: Open to new poker players who have been at Everest Poker for three months or less. These satellites are absolutely free to enter and the top 50 players qualify for the final.

Regular Daily: Open to everyone at Everest with a buy-in of 0+50 SP. The top 25 players from each daily satellite qualify for the final.

Freeroll News 13th July 2008:

Doyle's Room is a poker site which over the years has been a bit neglected by this newsletter. Sorry Doyle! The site is the vehicle for one of poker's most enduring and best loved champions - Doyle Brunson.

Of interest to most readers here is the fact that Doyle's Room has some excellent freerolls, both in value and variety of game.

The tournament page at Doyles has full details, but to save you the bother of trawling through and picking out the freerolls, I've done it for you to show what's on offer:

$200 Freeroll (5 Card Draw)
$200 Freeroll (7 Card Stud)
$200 Freeroll (Holdem)
$200 Freeroll (Omaha)
$500 Freeroll (Holdem)
I-PokerIT.com Freeroll (Holdem)
PokerPeople $25 Anniversary Freeroll (Holdem)
QuickDraw FreeRoll (Holdem)
Precious Metals Freeroll (Holdem)
PokerPeople $25 Anniversary Freeroll (Omaha High/Low)

In addition, there is the "First Depositor Freeroll" series of freeroll poker games.

As the name says, these are for real money players who make their first deposits. Most big sites have similar offers but this is a terrific opportunity to take part in no less than EIGHT consecutive $1,000 invite-only freerolls. These are twice a week events so you can enter for a whole month for your initial $30 deposit.

Freeroll News 6th July 2008:

For the month of July, Absolute Poker are running a great series of poker freerolls for their real money depositors. Every day during the month of July Absolute are running a bumper $500 freeroll. On the last day of July, Thursday the 31st, there is a fabulous final freeroll with a prize pool of $5000.

There are two ways you can get to play in the final.

The first way to get to play in the Absolute Poker $5000 freeroll final is to simply deposit $100 as a NEW player to Absolute Poker. If you are a new player, please click on the banner below right now and sign up for your account. Note you don't need to make a deposit right now if you don't want to, you can do that later if you decide to.

If you are already a player at Absolute, the other way to qualify is to finish in the Top 10 of any of the $500 daily freerolls. To qualify for the daily $500 freerolls you also need to make a $100 deposit to your account.

Now sometimes people complain to me that these tournaments aren't really freerolls in the strict sense of the word as there is money involved, I disagree. The way I see it is that you deposit $100 and you get to play - for free. You don't need an entry fee for the freeroll (that's why they call it a freeroll!).

You can then withdraw your $100 from your account any time you like, or use it to play some of the great low buy-in tournaments at Absolute. So you play $500 freerolls and it doesn't cost you a penny - it's free!

You can get to the July games by looking in the FREEROLLS and SPECIALS tabs in the AP card room lobby.
