Cake Poker ready for February

31 January 2011
CURACAO -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Popular online poker site Cake Poker has a lot in store for players this February. The Gold Spree promotion will return to challenge players to win cash, Irish Open 2011 satellite tournaments continue, Super Sundays draws to a close with its final tournament and WAR and Tourney Blackjack offer players a shot at free cash with plenty of freerolls.
Running from February 1st through 28th, Cake's Gold Spree promotion will challenge players to meet personalized, weekly Frequent Player Point (FPP) targets. FPPs are earned simply by playing in real money ring games and tournaments, and are used to unlock bonuses and earn various player rewards. Depending on how many weeks players meet their FPP target, they will be automatically entered into a kamikaze tournament for their shot at some free cash. Kamikazes range from $500 for meeting one weekly target to $5,000 for meeting all four weekly targets.
Also in February, Cake Poker continues its daily 2011 Irish Open satellites. Buy-ins start at only $1.10 and players who make it into the final will be vying for a $7,000 Irish Open prize package which includes a main event seat at the Irish Open worth €3,500, a five-night stay at Irish Open host venue, The Burlington Hotel, $1,500 USD cash to help with travel as well as an official Cake Poker gear pack. The Irish Open, rich with history, is the longest running No-Limit Texas Hold 'em poker tournament in Europe and second longest in the world after the World Series of Poker, Las Vegas. Players should be sure to secure their seat to this unique event before Cake's last final on March 27th as it is a must attend for many of the top poker players in the world.
February will see the final Super Sundays tournament, taking place on the first Sunday in February at 2pm EST. This $30 + $3 buy in tournament will see the winner walk away with more than just their share of the pot. The player who claims the top spot in this tournament will also receive $100 added to the Cake Poker player account.
Lastly, players will have plenty of chances to fund their bankrolls with cash through Tourney Blackjack Freerolls and a $500 Guaranteed WAR Tournament. Cake introduced these two new games to their roster last fall and if players haven't tried them out yet, Cake is giving them opportunity to do so for next to nothing this February. Tourney Blackjack, a tournament twist on the casino game of blackjack, will have $200 freerolls running every day for the entire 28 days of February. These tournaments will take place at 12:00am EST daily and only Loyalty Points, earned by playing in real money Tourney Blackjack games, are required to enter. And if every day in February isn't enough opportunity to cash in, Cake will show some Valentines Day love with a $500 Guaranteed WAR tournament. WAR is an online version of the classic card game that's easy to learn while also offering players amazing depth through strategy and bluffing. This tourney kicks off on February 13th at 4pm EST and the buy-in is only $1.12.
