Welcome to the latest edition of the PartyPoker Weekly where we have a real mixed bag for you. We have details on how to qualify for the new WPT National Series in Madrid, Tony G talking cash games and his new band, Kara Scott wondering where she should now call home, recent WPT Vienna champion on all things poker and more besides.
The World Poker Tour is heading to the Spanish capital of Madrid between Jun.28-Jul.1 for what should be an absolutely unmissable tournament; the WPT National Series Madrid.
The Gran Casino, Madrid is the venue for the $2,250 Main Event and you could be heading there for absolute nothing by winning yourself a superb $4,000 package. Each package consists of:
Satellites will be running on PartyPoker until Jun.10 so there is just over a month in which to bag yourself one of these $4,000 packages but time flies when you are having fun so log on and get winning your ticket today!
Each day there will be a WPT National Madrid Freeroll where the top 25 players progress to the next available WPT National Madrid Sub Qualifier Speed Rebuy tournamet; a $1 rebuy event that feeds inot a $22.50+$2.50 satellite. This particular tournament takes place daily at 13:55ET and in turbo format on Sundays at 11:15ET and for every $225 in the prize pool one seat is awarded to the $200+$25 WPT Madrid Satellite.
Every Sunday at 13:55ET this final satellite will take place and one package will be paid out for every $4,000 in the prize pool; with one package guaranteed by PartyPoker.
Tony G has laid claim to discovering what he calls the best cash games in the world and no they are not in Macau as most would have you believe. Instead Mr Guoga claims the best cash games are currently being played in Belarus; Minsk to be exact.
Everyone's favourite Australian-Lithuanian was invited to Minsk to play in a private high stakes Pot Limit Omaha cash game and by the sounds of it came away from it in very good shape indeed.
He's currently in Lithuania at the exclusive Tony Resort where he and his faithful hound Zasko are relaxing by "keeping away dangerous bears." Tony has his fingers in many pies and his latest venture is a band called the Tony Betties! Check out his latest blog to hear them in action.
Thanks to the special relationship between PokerNews and PartyPoker you can help yourself to a free $50 bankroll! That is correct, $50 absolutely free. $50 that you could use to enter some of the Pokerfest II Online tournaments and possibly turn into a huge bankroll boost!
All you need to do is follow the simple steps below, and $50 is all yours to keep!
Once you have received the confirmation email, $20 will be placed into your PartyPoker account. You must earn at least 40 PartyPoints before you will be able to withdraw the free $20. If you do not earn 40 PartyPoints within 60 days, the initial $20, or whatever remains of it, will be forfeited. PartyPoints are earned at a rate of two PartyPoints per $1 in rake or tournament fees, so earning 40 within a 60-day time frame is quite an easy task.
Once you have earned 40 PartyPoints a further $30 will be deposited into your account bringing the total free cash amount to $50. You must then generate 160 points before you can cash out any of the the $30 and must do so within 120 days otherwise the $30, or the remainder of it will be forfeited.
PartyPoker sponsored pro Kara Scott is one busy lady. When she is not hosting poker shows around the world she is playing in some of the biggest tournaments herself. Now she is preparing to move home but isn't overly sure where she should call home.
Before every single male, and even those of you who are taken, in the land emails in and offers their spare room we must put in a disclaimer that PokerNews is not a dating agency! Joking aside Miss Scott wants your suggestions on where in the world she should move next. You can give her some tips on her blog.
The 2012 World Series of Poker is just around the corner and you could be jetting off to Las Vegas and taking part in poker's biggest and richest tournament of the year, the WSOP Main Event. Last year's Main Event was won by Pius Heinz, who walked away with more than $8,700,000 and was thrust into the limelight. This year it could be you if you manage to secure yourself a WSOP package worth $14,000!
Qualifiers are open on PartyPoker and will run right up to June 17 so there is still plenty of time to win a $14,000 package; which consists of:
There are daily freeroll qualifier tournaments taking place so you could win your package for absolutely no financial outlay at all. There are also a plenty of other satellite tournaments running that have buy-ins ranging from just $2 to $80 that feed into the weekly $700+$50 WSOP Satellite.
This particular tournament kicks off at 14:50 ET every Sunday and awards one $14,000 package for every 20 entrants!
Someone has to become this year's WSOP Main Event champion and it could be you who is that person; sporting PartyPoker colors.
Morten Christensen recently took down the WPT Vienna Main Event for more than €313,000 and the ParytPoker Blog caught up with him to ask him about his win, how he got started in poker and his thoughts on bankroll management.
