|Starting 2006 with a bang, PokerRoom.com, the world's third largest poker website, has announced the launch of two new tournament leader boards - Ace of Aces and the Centurion Cup. |
Each is designed specifically to offer additional rewards for consistent good play. Alongside the release late last year of Private Tournaments and Team Tournaments these two new competitions cement PokerRoom.com's position as one of the world's most innovative poker sites.
Ace of Aces
Only for the genuine cream of the online poker crop, the Ace of Aces Leaderboard provides a fresh challenge for poker tournament players to get their teeth into: 12 individual tournaments and monthly first prize of $5000.
To win the monthly prize, players will have to score the highest points across each of the twelve gruelling tournaments, luck alone will not suffice. Exceptional performers will also be given the opportunity to win a free trip and entrance into the World Series of Poker with Team PokerRoom.com. Entry is free and automatic.
For all those online poker adrenaline junkies out there, PokerRoom.com has also launched Centurion Cup. Available 24/7, the Centurion Cup is a fast-paced weekly leaderboard that is based on 10-table Sit & Go Tournaments. Each performance is scored and ranked and the top three players each week will win a cash prize.
For the lucky top ten players, they will be invited into an exclusive weekly winner-takes-all Coliseum Sit and Go Final and play for a huge cash prize. The winner of the Centurion Cup Leaderboard and the ensuing Coliseum Final will be crowned the PokerRoom.com Centurion Champion!
PokerRoom.com's Manager in UK Krister Malm says, '2005 saw the launch of Private Tournaments, Team Tournaments, CasinoRoom.com and a number of mobile games to name but a few. We have begun this year with the launch of two tournament leaderboards and we are committed to continuing innovation at PokerRoom.com throughout 2006 and offering online and mobile gamers the very best in games and technology.'
