In an exclusive deal with Rakeback.com, partypoker is offering players the chance to win tickets to the $1 million GTD WPT500 event to be held at the Dusk Till Dawn casino in Nottingham, UK.
The promotion begins with a rake race for all partypoker players who signed up through the links on Rakeback.com. Play as much as you can between October 2 and October 19, and the players who rank in the top 30% by the amount of rake generated will all receive a ticket to a freeroll tournament which will award two WPT500 tickets, each worth £550.
The winner of the freeroll will win one of the tickets, the other will be awarded to whoever knocks out “goonerclaire” Rakeback’s very own Twitch streamer. Goonerclaire will be streaming the freeroll on the Rakeback Twitch channel, with a slight delay so players in the tournament can’t see her cards during a hand.
Since the prize for knocking out Claire is a WPT500 ticket, everyone who plays in a hand against her will be in with a chance of winning, from the very first minute of the tournament. Forget ICM and chip EV—knocking out goonerclaire is the way to win. The knockout winner-take-all format should make for some exciting moments.
If you don’t yet have a partypoker account, now is a great time to sign up. Not only will you be able to take part in the WPT500 promotion, but if you deposit $20 or more, we’ll throw in an extra surprise bonus consisting of a mixture of cash and tournament dollars when you sign up through the links on our partypoker page.
The partypoker PokerFest online tournament series which was due to start on Sunday September 27 has just been postponed until October 25. The last software update didn’t go well, and rather than begin the series with the risk of players having problems with the software, partypoker decided to delay the whole series.
The good news is that partypoker is adding a $50,000 GTD freeroll event to the series as a compensation to players who have to wait an extra month before the PokerFest begins.
Players who sign up to partypoker through Rakeback.com now will get the chance to win WPT500 tickets, plus an extra surprise bonus and be up and running in time to play the PokerFest together with the $50k freeroll.
Full details of the WPT500 promotion will be up on our promotion pages shortly, in the meanwhile get ready to play in the rake race beginning October 2 for your chance to win a free ticket to one of the greatest events in the UK live tournament schedule—and of course, the WPT Royal Flush Girls will be there too.
