|March 28, 2008 (London, UK) - The ASOP (as seen on the Poker Channel Europe) is an international series of poker tournaments specifically for affiliates. The massive prize pools of $20,000 along with gold and diamond winner’s bracelet ensures the competition is always fierce! But what makes this series really unique is that taking part in the qualifying freerolls is completely free of charge; you just have to be an affiliate registered to attend the offline event where the tournament will take place.|
The next ASOP event will be taking place with a backdrop of sun, sea and surf. The event is being held on the sun drenched holiday island of Cyprus during CAP SpringBreak and the Poker Conference and as always will be filmed and shown on the Poker Channel Europe.
Unlike previous tournaments though, the field of players is going to be upped to 50 and played as a freeze out following feed back from previous final table qualifiers. Due to legal reasons the organisers are unable to give out cash prizes at this event, however has only ensured even better prizes which now include a seat in the WSOP main event, an even bigger and more bling winner’s bracelet plus paid accommodation in Barcelona for the top 6 finalists.
Commenting on the ASOP Jeremy Enke, General Manager of PokerAffiliatePrograms.com said:
'With the amazing growth and recognition of the ASOP tournaments, we wanted to make the poker conference event extra special. So we decided to go 'all-in' and give the winner a WSOP main event package, as well as the coveted diamond ASOP bracelet. With over $20,000 in value to the winner, I can't think of a better affiliate freeroll in the history of our industry.'
Since the first ASOP in London back in January 07 the tournament has rapidly grown in popularity with as many as 100+ affiliates trying to qualify in each of the freerolls and with the past champions all looking for a second bracelet this is looking to be the toughest ASOP yet.
To register for the ASOP go to www.asop.com but don't forget you have to be an affiliate and be attending CAP/PAP events in Cyprus otherwise you won't be approved. For this event the sponsors are Everest Affiliates and AffiliateClub.com who deserve big thanks because it wouldn't happen without those guys. The freerolls themselves will be taking place on the sponsor’s sites from mid April 08 to mid May 08.
