HEADLINE: The World's Largest Poker Tournament in History

   The amazing growth of online poker is poised to cross another threshold with the poker world's first freeroll tournament to offer cash prizes totaling $100,000. Yes, that's right: $100,000 freeroll prize pool - there's no entry fee required - and all you have to do to win your share is play.

   While tournaments with prize pools of $100,000 are rather commonplace these days, prize money is always contributed by the competitors, along with a fee that goes to the Internet site or land-based casino that's hosting the event.
But there's a big difference here: all of the money in this tournament -- except for five-dollar rebuys during the first hour of play and a five-dollar add-on -- will be contributed by the host site, Royal Vegas Poker, a leading Internet poker site.

   If all this sounds interesting, and you'd like to be among the many players chasing all that money, here are the details you need to know. The World's Largest Poker Tournament is slated for Saturday night, December 18, 2004, at 8:00 PM EST. The game is no-limit Texas hold 'em, and entry may be gained by meeting any one of the following requirements:

    -- Become a first-time Royal Vegas Poker account holder by registering an account between August 1st and December 14th 2004. You can do this at There's no purchase required.

    -- If you're a current Royal Vegas Poker customer, you can qualify by playing at least 2,500 raked hands between August 1st and December 14th.

-- You can also qualify if you play at least 1,000 raked hands in any one of the following calendar months: August, September, October, November or December 2004.

   -- Fulfill any of the Royal Vegas Poker "special promotion" entry requirements.

    Each player will begin the tournament with $1,000 in chips, although Royal Vegas Poker is contemplating providing $2,000 in chips to players who have logged 1,000 raked hands in the four-month period between August and December.

At this point, however, a final decision has not been made. Only one entry per account is permitted, and only valid Royal Vegas Poker account holders, who have met at least one of the qualification requirements, are eligible to play in the tournament. Entries are not transferable and raked hand requirements are only met on tables with limits of $0.25/$0.50 and above.

   If you qualify for the event, you'll have to "join" the tournament prior to the close of registration (7:59 pm EST on December 18th, 2004) in order to play.
Also remember that the 1st 500 places will be paid.

   That'sall there is to it. Now all you have to do is show up, sit down, play flawless, error-free poker. Have a bit of luck on your side, and you might walk away with one of the top prizes. After all, one hundred thousand dollars out there for the taking doesn't come around every day. Visit and give yourself an early holiday present.
