      Hi all,
      I read in Bluff Europe that Ladbrokes have dropped the sponsership of this year's Poker Million but that the tournament is still going ahead with a new sponser, possibly from the ipoker network.
      Does anyone know anything about this, and who the sponser is, ie where the online satellites will be?
      Cheers

      sorry, of course.
      This is hot news not even off the press and definately not common knowledge.
      Full Tilt is holding it, I understand the buy in is $40K and there will be a few places up for grabs through online qualifying although not as many as in previous years.
      Dont know exactly what the format will be but my sources tell me that the field "will be off the chart"
      Guess I have no choice but to play at FT.
      A scoop from your friendly neighbourhood underground poker source, lol.
      You heard it here first, PS.

      Of course if I am wrong I will look a complete muppet, but dont think I am. Apparently the deal is signed so I guess FT will start advertising it soon.

      I think in a way it is unfortunate that Full tilt have taken over the events sponsorship. I like Full tilt, but they are starting to monopolise TV poker(in the UK), ok still don't have EPT, Premier league, 24 cash den and all the other gash partypoker sponsored stuff.
      Plus I also like the fact that donkey from basingstoke can qualify to poker million and give it a bash. Obviously still can but there are less places, so will probably all be taken by those ruthless scandies :D
