Full Tilt Poker's Piece of Ivey Promotion Begins Tomorrow

    -  Players can win Their Share of Team Full Tilt Superstar Phil Ivey's
       WSOP Main Event Winnings

DUBLIN, Oct. 7 /CNW/ - In anticipation of Phil Ivey's appearance at the World Series of Poker* Main Event final table on November 7th, Full Tilt Poker is offering the chance to win a Piece of Ivey. Players will compete for 6% of Phil Ivey's Main Event winnings and an additional $150,000 in cash prizes.

From October 8th through November 5th, players who participate in Piece of Ivey will earn tickets by playing in their favorite real-money games online at Full Tilt Poker. Tickets will be entered into three different draws:

    -  5% of Ivey: Nine players will earn a spot in this special Sit & Go,
       where a prize pool equal to 5% of Phil Ivey's Main Event winnings is
       up for grabs. Seats for the 5% of Ivey Sit & Go will be drawn at
       10:00 ET on Friday, November 6th, and the tournament will take place
       at 14:00 ET on Saturday, November 7th.
    -  1% of Ivey: Players can win a seat in this massive $50K Freeroll,
       where the winner will receive prize money equal to 1% of Phil Ivey's
       Main Event winnings in addition to the first-place prize money. Seats
       for the 1% of Ivey Freeroll will be drawn at 10:00 ET on Friday,
       November 6th, and the tournament will take place at 14:00 ET on
       Saturday, November 7th.
    -  Daily Cash Draw: More than 600 cash prizes will be awarded each day
       during the Piece of Ivey promotion. Daily Cash Draws will take place
       at 6:00 ET every morning, and over $150K in total prize money will be
       given away.

To win a Piece of Ivey, players can sign up for the promotion by going to the My Promotions section in the game Cashier, then following the Piece of Ivey link to a web page where they can register. With a top prize of more than $8.5 million at this year's WSOP Main Event, there's major cash on the line for players looking to claim their Piece of Ivey.

Phil Ivey will return to the final table of the Main Event when play resumes on November 7th with just under 10 million in chips. Though he trails the chip leader by a good margin, seven-time WSOP bracelet winner Ivey is still the favorite to win the most prestigious title in poker and become the next World Champion.

Ivey will be joined at the Main Event final table by fellow Full Tilt Poker pros James Akenhead and Steven Begleiter. Akenhead is the table's shortest stack, while Begleiter holds the third most chips in play.
