Titan Poker Launches Winter Promotion for Next Two Months

With winter beginning in earnest Titan Poker has decided to bring a little warmth into the season with two months of exciting promotional games. All-In Winter, Titan’s latest special offering, is already setting players up with a wide range of competitions and a prize pool that totals out at an impressive $220,000.

Titan Poker has a little something for everyone with its All-In Winter. The promotion covers a wide variety of play preferences, including sit-and-go and multi-table tournaments, cash games and more. All throughout December and January, Titan members are able to compete for a weekly prize pot of $10,000 through the All-In Winter Raked Hands Races. High and low-stake competitors divide the money between them based on their performance. Weekly sit-and-go tournaments will also be available through the All-In Winter Sit-and-Go Races alongside multi-table fare with the All-In Winter MT3 Poker Promotion. Cash payouts will be awarded via leaderboard tracking, giving even talented players with smaller bankrolls the opportunity to win big at the various events.

Aside from the main fare of Titan’s All-in Winter, a pair of freeroll competitions have also been scheduled for the coming months. Two freerolls, both with a $10,000 prize pool, will be held for players with at least 100 Titan Poker Points (earned throughout December for entry in January’s freeroll and earned in January for February’s).

World Poker Tour Scheduled in Venice

World Poker Tour Scheduled in Venice

The constantly expanding
World Poker Tour is set to make its next stop in a beautiful (if rather unlikely) location — Venice, Italy. The newest instalment in the popular series will mark the first time that the nation has hosted a WPT event and will ultimately end with the premier crowning of the World Poker Tour Venice Champion.

World Poker Tour Venice is only a few short weeks away and is set to play out at the famous Casino di Venezia on the east banks of the Grand Canal. The main event will consist of a €4,000+400 buy-in although Venice will also be hosting a wide variety of cash games throughout the rest of the tournament series. The first World Poker Tour Venice Champion will receive a bracelet marking their accomplishment along with a seat in the 2010 World Poker Tour Championship, a prize worth $25,000. World Poker Tour founder and CEO Steve Lipscomb told press that the company is excited to branch out with pioneering events in Italy and the rest of Europe, Venice being only the first part of future plans.

World Poker Tour is assisted by bwin in their efforts to carry out their first ever Italian WPT stop. The latter company’s support should be beneficial to fans as well considering that bwin plans to broadcast World Poker Tour Venice through their website at the same time the action itself is occurring. World Poker Tour Venice is scheduled to take place from May 6th to the 10th.

PokerStars Launches the UK and Irish Poker League

PokerStars Launches the UK and Irish Poker League

PokerStars has provided some good news for
British Isles poker fans with the announcement of the brand new UK and Irish Poker League. The league has been set up to provide incentive and reward for frequent play at the site, giving members the goal of reaching for the top of the heap and becoming part of a select group of winners.

The UK and Irish Poker League will be determined based on a leaderboard now active on the PokerStars client. Members of the popular PokerStars site will have their table time recorded for entry into the competition ladder, tracking accumulated points and exactly how they stack up against other British and Irish players. The more events that members enter, the higher their win and the larger their point earnings, the better they will fare on the leaderboard which rewards $300 to the top one hundred players on a monthly basis.

PokerStars players can choose to compete within all or any one of the three league divisions. Division One requires a $1 buy-in while Division Two allows free play (2,000 play money chips equal one buy-in). Division Three (or the FPP Division) allows the exchange of 25 Frequent Player Points for one buy-in. There are new opportunities for substantial rewards every month, a system that should help encourage stiff competition and busy tables at the PokerStars network.
