Last Few Chances to Play for $1,000,000 in the Chase the Chair Promotion

London (PRWEB) November 20, 2008

The champion of Ladbrokes Poker Million VII will be decided in less than a month's time on December 12th on Sky Sports 3 and there's still time for you to make it straight to the semi-final! Ladbrokes Poker is running daily 'Chase the Chair' freerolls up until 28th November, the ultimate winner of which will be awarded a $ 120,000 Poker Million VII semi-final seat, $ 5,000 in expenses, 5 nights accommodation for 2 at Hilton Metropole London, Green Room passes for their semi-final and a table for ten at the Poker Million VII Live Final party. The winner will play in the second semi-final on the 11th December against Ladbrokes Poker's own Roy Brindley, Devilfish, Asian Poker tour winner Tony G, 2008 WSOP Bracelet winner Marty Smyth, and World Open Champion Anthony Hardy for a $ 1,000,000 first prize. The eleven runners-up in the Chase the Chair promotion will each win a $ 2,000 Live Final VIP package

Edward Ihre MD of Ladbrokes Poker commented: "This is huge! It's the first time that we have enabled players to qualify directly into the semi-finals. Poker Million is renowned for mixing it up and to be honest, I think the ever changing elements of the format is one of the reasons why it's still one of the most watched poker shows on TV!"

"In 2003 Snooker champion, Jimmy White won the title, 2005 saw Freeroll winner Tony Jones and Helen Chamberlain of Soccer AM fame upset the apple cart. Chamberlain beat Crazy Horse himself Ram Vaswani in her heat to make it to the final table. The rest is history, Tony clinched first and a cool $ 1,000,000 and Helen came second winning $ 500,000. Poker Million V in 2006, saw $ 9 qualifier Raj Modha take down the tournament against a top notch field, so who knows what will happen this time around."

This year's tournament has seen the most change. Each of the twelve, six handed heats produced not only a winner, but also a runner-up, who now has the opportunity to play in a second chance qualifier to make it through to the semi-finals. The Chase the Chair Freerolls and LEOCOP Masters event will produce the final two semi-finalists and will result in two eight seated semi-finals, rather than the traditional two six handed semi-finals. The six final tablists will be determined in the same manner as always, with top three finishers in each semi-final progressing to the final table.

All Chase the Chair satellites will be held at 7pm UK time and can be found in the MTT section of Tables in the Ladbrokes Poker lobby in either MTT / All or MTT / Offline Events / Poker Million VII / Chase the Chair. The Chase the Chair satellites are free to enter every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with satellites on other nights requiring 120 player points to enter. Each Freeroll lasts about one hour and registration open's two hours before the start of each satellite.
