Free Poker

Saturday, 5 May 2012

  Tonight, I’ll be the bounty in a PokerStars freeroll, in conjunction with talkSPORT radio. That means a tournament which is free to play, and you win some money for knocking me out (not sure how much, I think £100). That’s a bit of a long shot because there’ll be hundreds of people in the tournament, but there are other prizes - the top 9 players win some money, and the top 18 win tickets to ANOTHER free tournament where they can win a package (€700 tournament entry fee and hotel expenses) for the UKIPT Dublin.

  The bounty freeroll is at 8.30pm UK time - you’ll find it listed in the lobby as “talkSPORT UKIPT freeroll” under TOURNEY > PRIVATE. I think it may only be open to players in the UK and Ireland. I might be wrong about that, so if you’re outside those areas then you might as well look in the PokerStars lobby and see if it’s there for you or not.

  If UK & Irish players can’t see it listed, try searching for the tournament ID, which is 552111309. To search, just press Ctrl + T when you’re in the lobby.

  Update (Saturday): registration’s now open and the password is “aces”.

what’s the password vicky?

Vicky, I think potential players have to listen to Talksport for a password.

I know I did for the last one, where you were knocked out before I’d played a single hand! 

Don’t be so modest, there won’t be hundreds of players chasing your bounty, there will be thousands!

Unfortunately I’ll be working, so I won’t be one of them…:0(

hey, i´m from germany and it doesn´t work for me. Damn how i´d like to play this tournament ;(

I cannot find the tourney in listing

Victoria Coren at 11:03 am on May 5th, 2012

  Yes, I think it’s definitely possible that this tournament simply isn’t visible to those outside the UK or Ireland.

  James, if you are a local player then you should find it under TOURNEY > PRIVATE listed at 20:30 UK time.

  If that doesn’t work, there’s another way of looking for it - I’ll adjust the main post above to include that option.

Missed that, but heck anyway - belated congratulations on your engagement. Honeymoon in Vegas?

I just missed it. I have read the post now as on 13 May, Sunday.

I like you, you are a very cool girl !  Any chance of a date?
