|WHAT:Registration for the 2005 Monte Carlo Millions, the world’s most exclusive poker tournament, has begun. |
Last year, Monte Carlo Millions was the first poker tournament to ever be held in the principality of Monte-Carlo, Monaco. This year, the Prima Network, the world’s largest online poker network, has guaranteed the largest prize pool in European history, with $3 million total with $1million designated for the winner. Buy-in for the tournament is $25,000.
HOW:Seats can be acquired one of two ways: by personal invitation from world-renowned tournament director Matt Savage, or by winning a satellite tournament on the Prima Network. But act fast because the field is limited to only 120 players.
WHEN:For more information you can e-mail Matt Savage, tournament director, at: email@example.com, or sign up for a satellite tournament on any of the 39 card rooms on Prima Network, www.primapoker.com.
SOURCE:Monte Carlo Millions is the true representation of upper echelon tournament poker.
