LONDON -- Finding fame and fortune playing
online poker has just got easier, as Celebpoker announced today they are to extend the Team Celebpoker promotion and offer additional free sponsored seats to major televised poker events through the world.

Since its humble beginning on the banks of the Mississippi, the popularity of poker has grown in leaps and bounds. Increasingly, poker players are seeking new, exciting challenges to win them hard cash and elevate them into the lofty world of poker showbiz. With that in mind, CelebPoker have extended the search for new Team CelebPoker members and are confident that this will provide online poker players with a fast-track ticket super-stardom.

Team CelebPoker, offers players the chance to compete and win sponsored places to many grand poker events - the highlight of which, being fully sponsored seats to the Monaco EPT Grand Final April 2008 and the WSOP Las Vegas in 2008. The Team CelebPoker promotion is another way in which CelebPoker can fulfil its commitment to turn the 'everyday poker player' into a super-star, and propel them into a life of fame and fortune.

Team CelebPoker has already proved to be a hotbed for poker talent. Indeed, it was this promotion that 'discovered' the poker 'whiz-kid' Tronde Eidsvig earlier this year. The Norwegian sensation is one of the best young tournament players in the world, winning the Masters of Classics in Amsterdam, Holland this month and a monster EUR620,000 prize, and prior to that, finishing 4th with EUR127,630 at the EPT Dublin, 5th in the EPT Barcelona Open with EUR250,800 and 3rd with GBP14,400 in the Scottish Poker Championships, Edinburgh. The 22 year old is developing into one of the most feared and respected players in the game, and CelebPoker hope their next search will unearth more 'legends in the making' who will go on to dominate the world of poker.

There are two simple ways to qualify for a spot on the Team. The first is a simple 'rake race,' where players generate as much rake as possible during a set online qualification period on their favourite poker game at CelebPoker, and through their results gain entry to the online final for the chance to win a FREE sponsored seat. The second is through any of the Multi-Table Tournament Satellites, running every minute of the day 24-7.

Here players have the chance to win tickets to all major, red hot poker events throughout the season for as little as EUR2 buy in, including the EPT, The WSOP, WPT and the Aussie Millions to name but a few.

As if that was not enough, the world's favorite celebrity poker room has also agreed to offer a staggering 30% poker rakeback to all players (terms and conditions apply) through their new official rakeback site CelebPoker operates on the Boss Media and IPN Poker Network, which has a reputation for hosting plenty of loose and juicy games with a 40 to 60 flop %, therefore this announcement is definitely going to please everyone, with Team CelebPoker set to attract both big and small players alike.

Even during the Wild West period in the US, poker players would descend on every saloon in the town to 'feast' on the fish win and 'clean up' the cash. Now, just as they did in the past, Celebpoker are hoping that the modern day poker-sharks will gather to swim in the Team CelebPoker pool...soon to find themselves swimming in deeper water and representing CelebPoker at the biggest events on the planet!
