Thanks for the car.
That's an inside joke that's funny for like five of you. But if you want a shot at winning a real car like an Aston Martin DBS, the one James Bond drives, then you should head over to PokerStars and check out their special promotion.
What: Win James Bond's CarThe only way to qualify for James Bond's car is to use your FPPs. You can buy-in directly or satellite your way in. PokerStars is running satellites that start as low as 25 FPP. They also have double-shoot outs and different SNGs.
When: Saturday, December 9th at 3:00PM ET
Buy-in: 10,000 FPPs
For all you beach-loving poker players, you have until Sunday, December 10th to win your seat at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, which will be held at the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas on January 4-11, 2007. The PCA is a great opportunity to win some serious points with your wife or girlfriend by satelliting into a prestigious tournament and getting to take her to Paradise with you.
The Aussie Millions will be held at the Crown Casino in Melbourne, Australia starting January 14th. I'll be there but won't be playing in the main event. I'll be working the event so if you win a seat, I can come sweat you. I'll be posting more specifics of the Aussie Millions gig in the upcoming week or so. I am looking forward to spending a month in Australia playing some cash games, traveling to Sydney and Brisbane, and hanging out with Jules one of the original CBGCs. Satellites to the Aussie Millions are running on PokerStars as we speak.
If you don't know, the third season of European Poker Tour is more than half done. The EPT is where young Americans such as Brandon Schaefer and Carl Olson cut their teeth flinging around chips against some of the best players that Europe has to offer.
The next EPT event in Copenhagen, Denmark is currently sold out. That's how popular these events have become. But if you want to play in Copenhagen, you can only get a seat by qualifying online at PokerStars. There are a few seats left and satellites are running right now. With plenty of seats still left for tournaments in 2007 such as Deauville (France) and Monte Carlo, you can win a free trip to Europe by winning a satellite on PokerStars. I've been trying to win my seat to both events playing FPP freerolls.
In the last few years, I've spent most of my bankroll trying to win seats into the PCA, Aussie Millions, or various EPT events because the extra appeal of traveling overseas seemed a lot more exciting than playing in a cities I've visited a hundred times like Las Vegas or Atlantic City. If I had a choice, I'd rather play in the EPT Grand Finale in Monte Carlo than play in the WPT Championships at the Bellagio. Then again, I've been to the Bellagio more times than I can count and have never set foot in Monte Carlo.
If you are looking for something to do this week, PokerStars is giving you plenty of chances to win a seat to Paradise, visit Australia or Monte Carlo, or win a brand new car.
