New Sponsorship: Master Classics of Poker 2009 (€2,930)

Team Rakemeback is getting ready to send players to the 18th edition of Master Classics of Poker 2009 which takes place from November 6 to November 14, 2009 in Holland Casino, Amsterdam.

We are offering a prize package worth €2,930 which includes your entries to the three (3) day Texas Hold'em No Limit Freeze Out €1,500+€100 (Nov 6-8) tournament and to the Satellite for Main Event €300+€30 (Nov 9) as well as €1,000 travel/accommodation money! Four days of top poker in one of the most prestigious European tournaments and an exclusive chance to play face to face with high-quality players with proven track records.

On top of that, the players who qualify for the Sponsorship are given the opportunity to try and win the buy-in for the Master Classics of Poker Main event, Texas Hold'em No Limit Freeze Out €6,000+€200 taking place between Nov 10-13, 2009 and to compete for the first place prize, an estimated €500,000.


To open the sponsorships up for more potential players, we propose the so called "half sponsorship" with a lower rake requirement and just like it suggests, it means we will sponsor half of the total cost of the event.
