Fox Baseball World Series Tournament – Free Roll This Saturday

Poker Tournament Champion Wins World Series Travel Package

Weekly Free Roll Qualifier: Saturdays at 3:30 pm EST; Final: September 22

Playing poker and watching baseball on TV simultaneously could be a multitasking nightmare for some couch potatoes, but the boys at PlayersOnly.com are mastering the art of poker between pitches. The grand prize winner of the Fox Baseball World Series Free Roll Tournaments will win an all expense paid trip to the World Series this fall. Free roll qualifiers began last weekend and continue this Saturday at 3:30 pm EST – just as Fox Television broadcasts Saturday afternoon games.

The top ten players in this weekend’s free roll will advance to the Fox Baseball World Series Tournament Final on September 22nd. Those that don’t win their way to the final table can buy into the $50.00 + $5.00 buy-in freeze-out tourney. Tournament details are posted here: http://www.playersonly.com/poker/free-roll.

“We’ve always got tournaments happening. Tournaments are a great way to get poker experience,” said PlayersOnly.com Manager David Anderson. “All you risk is the buy-in fee – so in a free roll you risk nothing. Everyone starts with the same stack of chips. And you play until one player has them all.”

This Saturday and every Saturday this summer, players will start with 1500 chips and advance through 8-minute levels. The top ten players – the Final Table – will automatically win a seat at the Grand Final Tournament on September 22nd. The winner of the Grand Final tournament will receive a deluxe travel package to attend the World Series including two box seats to Game 1, first class air for two, hotel suite and limo to and from stadium. The runner-up will receive two field level seats, coach air for two, a standard hotel room and limo to and from stadium. The Third Place player can watch the game from home on his new Proton 37" LCD TV.

For those extreme multitaskers that can play poker, watch TV AND predict who’ll take the pennant this fall, as of today the PlayersOnly.com Sportsbook favors the Detroit Tigers at 7-2 to win the World Series, followed by the Boston Red Sox at 4-1, the New York Mets at 6-1 and the Los Angeles Angels at 8-1.

In the recently re-designed PlayersOnly site, players enter the trendy, up-scale Poker Room, Sportsbook or Casino from the sexy, ultra-realistic Main Lobby where they’re greeted by site host Carrie Stroup and the ladies of PlayersOnly.

In addition to this Saturday tournament series, PlayersOnly.com is also presenting a Sunday free roll series where the winner will play in the WPT in Turks & Caicos. WPT Turks & Caicos satellites are held every Sunday.

PlayersOnly.com will award more than $25,000 in cash and prizes during this summer’s online poker free roll tournaments.
