Bluff Poker Challenge

The prestigious Bluff Poker Challenge, sponsored by Lock Poker, was to kick off today (Friday April 1, 2011) with over 650 participants.  Lock Poker is one of Gambling911.com coveted sponsors and we strongly suggest that readers check them out

So what exactly is the Bluff Poker Challenge you might ask?

Each player begins the competition with the bankroll of their choice and has the entire month of April to build their bankroll playing in ring games, multi-table tournaments and SNGs exclusively on the popular Merge Network-based online poker site (which features many additional promos and platforms that go beyond the other Merge Network poker rooms that are out there, in case you happen to already have an account at one of them). 

Each player begins the competition with the bankroll of their choice and has the entire month of April to build their bankroll playing in ring games, multi-table tournaments and SNGs exclusively on LockPoker.com. The winner the player who shows the greatest profit. Players are permitted to reload their account at any time during the 30 days. The minimum weekly play required is 250 SNGs/MTTs or 2000 raked hands.  You can enter at any time but must meet those set requirements. 

And the prizes:  include the player being on the July 2011 cover of Bluff Magazine, as well as featured in a 6 month marketing campaign, and signed to a 2 year LockPRO ELITE Sponsorship and a WSOP Main Event Seat.  And let’s face it, just about every poker player on the planet wants to enter the World Series of Poker with a chance to win several million dollars without having to fork over any cash to buy in. 

“The first Bluff Online Poker Challenge was a revolutionary concept in poker to try to find who the best tournament players in the world were, this time Lock Poker and Bluff are stepping it up a notch to try and determine the best poker player… period”  says Eric Rizen Lynch, “one month, one goal, whoever makes the most money wins. I’m looking forward to finding out who emerges from the challenge and getting to know the next big thing in poker!”
“We are so excited to be doing this type of challenge with Lock again. We really are in a new generation of poker where online Pros are the new rockstars,” said Eric Morris, President of Bluff Magazine. “We want to be a part of making the next amazing player really matter. This is a life changing moment for any serious poker player out there and we are excited to be a part of it.”
