|May 13, 2008 (London, UK) The Bluff Europe Exclusive $2,000 Freeroll is fast approaching. Players from all around the world will be logging in on May 20th at 8pm BST to try their chances against two of the best young players in the world – World Series of Poker Europe Main Event winner Annette Obrestad and online phenom Sorel ‘Imper1um’ Mizzi.|
The tournament has been organised exclusively by the team at BluffEurope.com and Betfair, sponsors of the two players. There’s a $1,500 prize pool up for grabs, with Annette and Sorel carrying $250 bounties on their heads, making a total kitty of $2,000.
Being two of the best players in the world means the rest of the field will be in for a tough time. In a bid to help their readers, Bluff Europe managed to speak exclusively with Sorel about how best to play freerolls, some hints and tips on online play. Sorel also gave invaluable advice on how to beat his Team Betfair companion. Speaking in the interview, Sorel said, “Poker tournaments are marathons. Take your time, pick your spots carefully and don''t try to steal my blinds!”
Online editor for Bluff Europe, Dave Bland, said of the event: “Annette and Sorel are two of the best online players in the world, and it’s a privilege to have them playing in the same tournament. We love giving a little bit back to our readers, so this will be a great chance for them to test their skills against two of the best, as well as make some money!”
To read the interview, as well as check out the new gallery of images of Sorel head to BluffEurope.com and register for a free account. In the coming weeks, Bluff Europe will catch up with Miss Obrestad herself to ask for her advice, as well as how to best knock Sorel Mizzi out of a poker tournament.
To take part in the freeroll, players have to sign up for a Betfair poker account using the links on Bluffeurope.com or use the bonus code “BLUFF1”. Afterwards, generate 10 Betfair Points ($1 in rake) and the player will automatically be registered for the tournament.
