Ladbrokes Announce Team Championship
UK Poker site Ladbrokes.com has announced an innovative new route for four players to qualify for this year’s World Series of Poker Main Event – via their 2011 Team Championship series.
Unlike most other WSOP promotions where it will be every man for themselves, the Team Championship will see groups of four work together to secure leaderboard points in eight MTT events.
Commencing on Thursday the 24 March and continuing each subsequent week until 12 May, the Team Championship will cover a wide range of disciplines from NLHE rebuy to PLO tournaments.
At the end of the eight week series, the winning team will be issued with a fabulous prize that includes four €7,500 package to the WSOP, four €1,000 packages to the Ladbrokes.com Irish Poker Festival and four tickets to the €500k GTD online event.
In order to be eligible for the packages, all members of each team must have competed in at least six of the events, but those who play all eight tournaments will receive additional reward by being entered in a freeroll event offering bonus prizes.
To enter the Ladbrokes.com Team Championship, interested parties must email the aliases of their four team members to [email protected] to confirm their participation.
