Online Poker Tour 2007 schedule.
The Online Poker Tour has announced their schedule for tournaments and games for 2007. To kick the year off, they have created the New Year Bash where they are working with their sponsors to give away four trips to the Playboy Mansion and five trips to the Ultimate Poker Challenge. Running almost everyday during January and February are free and $1.10 buy in qualifier tournaments.
In 2006, eight of their players won trips to the Playboy Mansion, two to a celebrity poker tournament with the likes of Shannon Elizabeth, Tara Ried, Don Cheadle, Lakers owner Jerry Buss and more. In addition, pro poker players such as Daniel Negreanu, Hoyt Corkins, Ted Forrest, Gavin Smith and many, many more were in attendance.
For the second party the Online Poker Tour sponsored, they purchased a VIP table for the Partying for a Purpose charity event. This was a Jungle Luau in which six members of the Online Poker Tour won free trips out to California to party at Hef's house. The trips included airfare, hotel, a VIP Pre-Party, VIP shuttle to and from the Mansion, drinks, food, and VIP seating. Hef opened up the game room and the famous Grotto was open.
To finalise things for the trips, the last tournaments are going to be broadcast live on Rounder's Radio. This new online radio station is dedicated to poker and there will be five live shows a week to discuss poker. In between shows, they will be playing a mix of music as well.
What happens after February is still a mystery as they like to keep their future events under wraps.
