"The overlay is of paramount importance."
Quick note before I start playing in Event #7 of the WCOOP, the $500 pot-limit hold em. Maybe I'll live blog this sucker. Check below.
I found this sweet deal from the folks at Poker Blue and thought it worthy of pimping for all my low-limit friends and readers.
Hell, you just need to play four hours of 1/2 to qualify for a nice freeroll:
Virtually one out of four players who entered our $3000 freeroll won last week!
Last Sunday, only 87 players competed in Poker Blue $3,000 freeroll -
and 20 of those were in the money!
And as of today, less that 50 players are eligible for this week's freeroll.
That means if you play just 4 hours this week on PokerBlue.com, you'll
get unbeatable odds to make some easy money this Sunday. To qualify,
you can play ANY No-Limit Hold 'Em Game or ANY $1/$2 limit or higher.
First place is $1,000 CASH and all TOP 20 finishers get paid:
• $1,000.00 = 1st Place
• $500.00 = 2nd Place
• $250.00 = 3rd Place
• $150.00 = 4th Place
• $150.00 = 5th Place
• $100.00 = 6th Place
• $100.00 = 7th Place
• $100.00 = 8th Place
• $75.00 = 9th Place
• $75.00 = 10th Place
• $50.00 = 11th thru 20th Place
This Sunday's tournament starts at 6 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (3 p.m.
Pacific Daylight Time.)
