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”.
