Poker Network Announces New PNW Online Poker League

Poker Network is pleased to announce the launch of a new PNW Online Poker League which will commence this Sunday 9th March 2008 at 8pm. We are proud to partner with Pacific Poker for this league which will ensure a solid platform for a professionally run league with tremendous added value!
The PNW League will run for 12 rounds over six weeks and will feature No Limit Holdem, 6-handed and Pot Limit Omaha game variations. Events will be held on both Wednesday and Sunday evenings with points will be awarded for each of the 12 rounds as per the usual PNW League points system. The league will cater for players of all budgets, with the Wednesday series priced at $20+2 and the Sunday series at $50+5. We will essentially be running two leagues in one, with prizes awarded for winners of both the Wednesday and Sunday series’ as well as for the overall points winners. The points winners from both the Wednesday and Sunday series of events will receive a Melbourne Championships Main Event seat worth $1,100, thanks to Pacific Poker. At the end of the 12 rounds, the three highest points finishers from both the Wednesday and Sunday series’, plus the next three overall points finishers (Sun + Wed combined), will receive entry into the PNW League final to be held on Sunday 20th April 2008. The 9 players will play off for a Melbourne Championships Main Event entry, flights and accommodation package worth $2,500 thanks once again to Pacific Poker. In addition to the above added prizes, Pacific Poker will also be sending as many Poker Network players as possible to World Poker Crown on Saturday 26th April 2008. The $3 million guaranteed World Poker Crown tournament is a new breed of event, which starts online, and then takes the last 8 players standing to a live event to play for the guaranteed $3 million pool with $1 million first prize! During the PNW League we will be running several satellite events for the World Poker Crown where there will be a World Poker Crown Seat added to the prize pool! This is $1,050 worth of added value! This will provide a fantastic overlay for higher stakes players looking to gain entry into the World Poker Crown this April. Download the software from Pacific Poker and create an account today to be ready for the fun and excitement of the new Poker Network League! In addition to their deposit bonus, you’ll be able to participate in the Shane Warne Ultimate Home Game promotion. There is a whisper that Warney may even may a guest appearance or two during the PNW League where Warney’s wicket will be worth a nice little bounty!
