Mansion $1,000,000 Superstar Challenge

Posted at 07:00 2006-06-10

MANSION has announced its new venture, the MANSION Superstar Challenge. Taking place on July 12, three amateurs will battle three professional players, with the top three finishers grabbing a share of a $1,000,000USD prizepool.

To become one of the lucky three amateurs, you must first qualify through one of the Daily Qualifier freerolls which will be held from Tuesday June 13 until Sunday June 18 at 3:30am, 8:30am, and 12:30pm (AEST). The top six qualifiers from each tournament will then progress to the Superstar Challenge Qualifier Final on Monday June 19 at 8:30am.

The 108 qualifiers will battle to become one of the three lucky amateurs that will win a $150,000 buyin to the MANSION Superstar Challenge. These three internet qualifiers will be flown to Las Vegas a week before the big tournament to take part in a 5-day intensive ‘Poker Boot Camp’ to give them some coaching on how to beat the pros.

If that wasn’t enough of a helping hand, the amateurs will start with chip stacks of 70,000 versus the pros with 50,000, and they will also be able to call on their mentor twice throughout the tournament - nothing to sneeze at when those mentors are Mike "The Mouth" Matusow, Annie Duke, and Howard "The Professor" Lederer.

You'll need mentors like that on hand when you consider the list of players who have put their hand up to compete for the 3 seats reserved for the professional players - Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu, Antonio Esfandiari, Marcel Luske, Jennifer Harman, Scott Fischman, Kenna James, Kirk Morrison and Freddy Deeb.

The game will be Speed Poker - pot-limit pre-flop, no-limit post-flop with 15 seconds to act, and the structure will be befitting of the prize at stake.

You don’t need to be a maths whiz to know that this is incredible value, and should you be lucky enough to get to the Superstar Challenge, you have a 50% chance of making the money, and a very good chance to grab the $500,000USD first prize. So set your alarm clocks for June 13th and give the MANSION Superstar Challenge a go! Download MANSION Poker
