Poker Freeroll News May 2007

This week we're taking a look at one of the most exciting new poker sites anywhere on the internet. Carbon Poker is a site that seems to have everything; great freerolls, bonuses, $2 tickets to the 2007 WSOP, special features and to top all that, it's available to US players too.

Freerolls at Carbon Poker

When you sign up, you will be eligible for the Carbon Poker $50 freeroll that takes place every 3 hours. As you play more and more on the site you become eligible to play in the "Regular Player" freerolls.

Also, Carbon Poker run the following freerolls:

- $50 Freerolls
As well as the new player $50 freerolls, there are $50 freerolls open to all players taking place every 2 hours.

- $500 Freeroll for New Depositing Players
When you make an initial deposit you get a coupon which is valid for a week and gets you entry to the daily New Depositing Players $500 Freeroll.

- $1000 Freerolls
These take place every Monday through Friday and are for players who have made 1000 points in real money games in the 72 hour period before the start of the tournament.

- $2000 Freerolls
Every Saturday, again for players with 1000 points in the 72 hour period before the start of the tournament.

- $10,000 Freerolls
Every Sunday, this time for those with 2500 points in the week before the start of the tournament.

- $50,000 Freerolls
This takes place on the last Sunday of the month and to enter you need to have accumulated 5000 comp points in play during the month before the tournament.

More from Carbon Poker:

How do you fancy becoming the next "unknown" to go on and win the WSOP World Series of Poker Main Event? Carbon Poker has guaranteed to send at least one player to the event in a package worth $12,500. There are buy-ins from only $2. Think about that for a second, can you afford NOT to risk $2 for the chance of achieving your ultimate dream?

On the "nuts and bolts" side of things there's a very neat Multiple Window feature that allows you to view all of the tables you're playing on at the same time. Of course you can also use this to watch other players progress if you want to.

Good News for players from USA! Carbon Poker welcomes you too and has 100% safe funding that you can withdraw your money from whenever you want.


Intertops claim on their banner to be the "World's best poker room", maybe a touch over the top but they are a long established company with a great reputation. You can play at Intertops without downloading any client, the table runs in Flash on your browser and is very fast to get up and running.

Current offers include a remarkable 500% bonus for all new customers, up to a massive $10,000. If you're serious at all about your poker then you need to be taking advantage of tremendous offers like this to build your bank for free. It's possible to clear your poker bonus without spending any of your own money, leaving you with all that free cash to play the tables with.

There's a weekly tournament on the site that I haven't played yet - quite honestly I find it a bit hard to believe. For only ONE PENNY you can play your way into a tournament that has a gigantic $200,000 prize pool. The game is on Saturdays at 3:30 EST, you'll find it under 'Multi-Table Tournaments' --> 'Regular'.

Intertops are also running some of the best WSOP package tournaments anywhere, with entry to the main event prizes equivalent to $15,000 on offer. You can get to the WSOP for as little as $7.50 at Intertops.

Oh yes, they also do some very nice poker freerolls!

There are three $1000 games running every day, as well as lesser tournaments too, valued at $200 up to $500. See the updated tournament schedule below for the times and games available, highlighted in yellow.

Players are accepted from most places around the world, the exceptions being: The Netherlands and the following US states: Michigan, Illinois, Louisiana, Oregon, Wisconsin, Washington, Indiana, Nevada, South Dakota, New Jersey. Also, if English isn't your first language there is the option of seeing the site in Chinese, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Polish, Arabic, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish.

All in all Intertops is a very good all round choice with a bit of everything available and a highly professional organisation behind it.


A New option for US players wanting to play poker online!

Players Only Poker is another of these sites that you might never have considered playing at but is quite popular. There are regular games in all shapes and sizes both in the sit down regular table games and in tournament format. 

The most important thing from a US player point of view is that the site accepts players from America and you are free to set up a real money account there.

There are some great freerolls running just now where you can win your way to the WSOP itself as well as some low value $1 games which some consider to be even better than freerolls as the prize money is usually so much better for the number of entrants.

Thanks to all of you who took part in our members-only freeroll at CD Poker where all 200 places were snapped up despite US players not being able to play. Like I said in my email I am sorry you missed out if you're from America but I was offered the chance of the freeroll and it's better that some people got to play than nobody at all.


Can you believe it! Hot on the heels of last night's big members only freeroll (results below), today I've got news of ANOTHER one, and it's only 3 days away!

I hope everyone enjoyed the game, it's certainly a bit different from the usual poker site and the animation of the players is very innovative. Whether you like it or prefer the more traditional game is your call but I can see more and more of this type of site in the future as technology improves.

If you missed the game you can still Click Here to go to The3DPoker and register an account so you're in pole position for the next one!


Great news, we've got another EXCLUSIVE Love-Texas-Holdem freeroll for you this Sunday. It's at The3DPoker and you can read a bit more about the site below.

It's really simple to enter, just Click Here  to go to the site and download the software. Then sign up for an account (it's all free) and look for the Love-Texas-Holdem freeroll. The default is play money so you need to click on the Real Money button to see the tournaments.

You'll need the password - waterboy

Prize fund is a decent $100 and there will be a better than average chance of winning as numbers are restricted as well as this being quite late notice.

About The3DPoker:

There is a small value freeroll on the site every 4 hours and as soon as you make a minimum deposit you are eligible to play in the weekly Club Freerolls. There are also a variety of special prize freerolls where you can win game consoles, iPods and pocket PCs among other things.

US players can play on the site and can use bank wire transfers to manage their money. They are promising more payment options in the near future.

On the techy side 3DPoker describes itself as having the "World's first three dimensional poker technology" and I must say the site is like nothing I've seen before. The graphics are great and the players actually move during the game. It's nothing like the normal boring static games you get elsewhere. It won't eat up all your computer's resources either, it only needs 11MB to run.

If you're into avatars, this is the business as you can do almost anything with yours - including reshaping the nose! There's also a variety of camera angels too, as well as multi-table options.

Please note that unusually, you can't add or withdraw money from your account from the client software. To manage your money, go to the web page and do it from there.
