The first PokerNews Cup competition was held in Melbourne, Australia this year and more than 130 online poker players who qualified via special freeroll satellite tournaments held by PokerTournamentWatch and its partner sites gathered in the city.

It was the perfect chance for these online players to play along side some of the biggest names in the poker world and to take their shot at a first prize of AU $300,000.

The PokerNews Cup was also about having fun and the online qualifiers enjoyed a variety of activities laid on for them at the event in Melbourne. The event saw players from 15 countries coming from all around the world

The event lasted for a week in which many poker players had to pay nothing to enjoy poker and other activities thanks to winning entry via the PokerTournamentWatch online poker freerolls.

The event began on Thursday with a welcome party organized at the Crown Casino. Groups of poker players stood around chatting about poker and their journey to qualify for the event and players mingled with famous names from the poker world.

After players took part in the first tournament of the festival they were then taken for a day tour to the oldest wineries of Australia, which was a part of the winning package for the freeroll winners. After the winery tour players enjoyed a relaxing cruise along the Yarra River.

The main event of the PokerNews Cup had 428 poker players who played for a prize pool of $1.1 million. Some of the players were competing for the first time in a big buy-in’ poker event and nerves could be seen as many players took their seats. The eventual winner of the main event and a first prize of AU $300,000 was Dory Zayner.

As for the online freeroll qualifiers the standout result was Jordan Lamberg, who turned his $0 investment into $47,900.

The PokerTournamentWatch poker freerolls continue to offer an unbelievable schedule of tournaments with freerolls to win seats to the Aussie Millions and the South African Pokernews open now listed in the schedule for December.

Remember also that these tournaments have limited fields and so the chances of winning one of these packages worth up to $15,000 each is greatly increased. For example in the Pacific Poker tournament that took place a few days ago to win a $12,500 package to the Aussie Millions there were only 40 entrants to the freeroll which offered great value and odds to those taking part.
