June is the time of year when thousands of the world's poker players and lucky satellite winners head for the World Series of Poker at the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
Live poker is exciting and puts your poker face and table knowledge to the test, but for those who don't have ready access to live poker rooms, online poker is better than a substitute: it's the real deal. Online poker is filled with challenges, excitement, and the opportunity to put cash in your pocket and build a bankroll at the same time.
Before you shake your head and wonder how you could compete for real money when you have no bankroll, get ready to take advantage of the following freerolls, as we've put together a list of five great free events that can build your game to a new level and pad your bankroll with real money prizes.
