What usually happens around this time of year now that the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event is down to a final table and on break until November is that you get really excited to get into some live tournament action yourself and make your own final table.
We want to help you out with that — to let you scratch that itch. The PokerNews Cup is back this Autumn after a few-years break, and we are going to tell you how to get into the action for free in the Unibet PN Cup — RakeRace.
What is the PokerNews Cup?
The PokerNews Cup began at the Crown Casino in Melbourne Australia back in 2007, when over 1,500 PokerNews readers from 22 different countries competed over 9 days and 6 events against the likes of WSOP bracelet winners Jeff Lisandro and Mark Vos and our very own Tony G.
This event was such a success that it was soon followed by two more editions of the Cup in Austria, and two more events in Australia before taking a break for a few years.
Since our readers repeatedly asked us what happened to the PokerNews Cup, we have decided to bring our very own live tournament series back to live organizing a sixth edition that will take place in Austria, this time in Vienna's Montesino Casino, from October 9 to October 12, 2014 for a €75,000 guaranteed €250 main event and a €20,000 guaranteed €60 side event.
