Do you fancy jetting off to Las Vegas, Nevada and taking part in the 2012 World Series of Poker? Do you want to win one of 10 WSOP packages just for playing your usual cash games and multi table tournaments? If so we have just the promotion for you over on Poker770.
From now until the end of April 2012, you can take part in the Battle Forum on Poker770 simply by playing cash games and taking part in the Circus tournaments. In order to participate you must be representing a poker forum or a club, so why not represent PokerNews in the Battle Forum?
How Does It Work
Each month you can earn points by playing in cash games and the Circus MTTs on Poker770. The top 40 points earners progress to the live final on Saturday 5 May at the Casino de SPA in Belgium, where 10 WSOP packages have to be won! On top of progressing to the live final, the top 10 points earners in each month's leaderboard will win prizes ranging from a $22 token up to $500 in cold, hard cash!
How Do You Earn Monthly Leaderboard Points
There are two ways to accumulate monthly leaderboard points, through playing cash games or participating in the Circus tournaments held on Poker770.
Simply sit down at any real money cash game tables on Poker770 and you will automatically pick up points. The calculation of these points is based on a player's winnings, with points being awarded to the best 60 players each month.
The Circus tournaments are available in a number of different poker variants and buy-ins including No Limit Hold'em, Pot limit Omaha, Six-max and Heads-Up. Each Circus tournament is played to an excellent Deepstack blind structure meaning more skilful players will stand a better chance of making it to the money.
Points are allocated in Circus tournaments by taking the square root of your winnings and multiplying it by 20.
What Else Can You Win?
Along with your winnings from the cash tables and Circus tournaments you also stand the chance of picking up some cash prizes and tournament tokens. Finish in the top ten of any of the month's leaderboards and you will win a prize as shown in the table below:
