Ladbrokes Poker celebrates 1st and 2nd place in €500k Two Day Event
Ladbrokes Poker is today celebrating as two of its players came in first and second on Microgaming’s two day €500,000 guaranteed tournament.
Ladbrokes players Timewalk, from Sweden and PsychoRajko from Denmark scooped the first and second spots winning €120,000 and €68,500 respectively.
The tournament had 859 runners in total of which 244 were Ladbrokes players and with only the top 100 players cashing, competition was intense. In the end 24 Ladbrokes players cashed a total of €237,300, just shy of half of the prize money.
Timewalk has played with Ladbrokes Poker for years so it’s always good to see a “legend” winning these kind of sums. That is why Ladbrokes has also decided to give him an extra bonus, a package for the Ladbrokes Irish Festival in Killarney this autumn with a guaranteed €250,000 main event.
Naomi Thrower from Ladbrokes Poker, said: “A Ladbrokes 1 and 2 is fantastic news. It really goes to show the quality of the players on Ladbrokes Poker. We have seen a large number of players coming to Ladbrokes in the last few months as they know their money is safe is safe with us, and it is great to see so many of them cashing in this tournament. With the 2011 Irish Poker festival in Killarney just around the corner there really has never been a better time to discover Ladbrokes Poker.”
