Winners of the August DuckPoker PokerNews Cup Freerolls
Congrats to Slovenia's Klemen "Klemeen" Kramljak for his win on August 7 in our first DuckPoker PokerNews Cup freeroll. If this name looks familiar to you, it is because he also found himself in fourth place on the rake race leaderboard.
Desko "Desislav" Pavlov made his home country of Bulgaria proud by winning the second DuckPoker PokerNews Cup freeroll on August 21. This player did not crack the top 50 of the rake race leaderboard, but impressively showed his poker skills when it counted.
The third PokerNews Cup freeroll at DuckPoker was held yesterday. We expect the winner of this event to be announced soon, and he or she will enjoy the wonders of Vienna along with our other winners, "lekmiamars", "Klemeen", and "Desislav", for a chance of winning big bucks in the Main Event in October.
