Cake Poker Gold Champs 2012
Cake Poker has announced a new online poker promotion that will coincide with the Euro 2012 soccer tournament from June 8th to July 1st. This promotion uses a lot of words to make it appealing to Euro 2012 fans, but in reality it looks pretty much the same as most of their other online promos. Let’s have a look:
From June 8th to 22nd you will notice four different Gold Champs 2012 daily satellites running throughout the day. To enter these satellites you will need gold cards between 2s and 8s from any of the suits. Each satellite will be dedicated to a suit and the top 20 finishers in each satellite will earn a ticket into that suits $5,000 freeroll, which will take place on June 23rd or 24th.
At the $5k “group finals” there is $5,000 in cash being awarded to the winners PLUS the top 50 finishers in each “group finals” will win a ticket into the $10,000 Gold Champs Finals which will take place on July 1st, the same days at the finals of Euro 2012.
Finishing in the top 50 of a “group finals” is not the only way to gain entry to the $10K Gold Champs Finals however. There will also be daily satellites from June 25th to 28th where the top 10 finishers will advance to the $10k Finals. These satellites require gold cards from 9s to Aces for entry. This means that the total number of players in the $10,000 tournament will be 240, which equals an equivalent buy-in of about $40 per person.
In total Cake Poker will be awarding $30,000 to players, but this cash isn’t completely free since you need gold cards in order to enter the satellite tournaments. I would still say that using your gold card for this promotion would be of good use and if you are able to enter the $10,000 finals an equivalent of a $40 buy-in tournament is more than many players on Cake would be able to enter on a daily basis.
The other great thing about this promotion is that you will be able to watch Euro 2012 matches throughout the promotion! I for one am extremely excited about the start of the tournament this coming weekend and this promotion starting at the same time adds another perk to the tournament!
