LONDON, February 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Sky Poker's regional poker tournament has sparked fierce competition across the UK!
Sky Poker, the UK's leading online poker firm, are celebrating the UK's poker prowess with their Play the Nation tournament. The competition, which started 1 February and ends 29 February, has set poker pulses racing as poker players across the UK represent their region in this national challenge!
The latest standings have been released from Sky Poker headquarters where the tournament's fluctuating leading board is kept a close eye on. Currently Norther Ireland and Rest of the World are topping the online poker charts with 29 points. They can't get too ahead of the game though - not if the South East have anything to do with it! The South East are only 3 points behind the current leaders, with 26 points. Londoners come in third with 22 points and are vying for a capital win! Sadly, regions in the North of England are not faring as well so far, firmly ushered down the leader board and Wales sits right at the bottom. But, the game is far from over though, with almost two weeks left of play. With everything and anything possible at this stage, who will win?
All the Welsh Dragons, English lions, Scottish thistles and Irish clovers out there can discuss tactics on the Sky Poker Play the Nation discussion board. Discussion threads are divided by region and the board is the best place for poker players to come together for strategy talks.
Play the Nation is completely free to enter. All players who take part will receive a special £5 Play the Nation bonus when they earn over 500 poker points throughout February. These bonuses are earned through Sky Poker's Cash for Points scheme which players are automatically opted into after signing up to play - enter promo code 'PLAY.'
Not only that, Sky Poker are giving Play the Nation players the chance to double all bonuses earned! The top three winning regions at the end of February will win the following:
- 1st - 100% Cash for Points boost
- 2nd - 50% Cash for Points boost
- 3rd - 25% Cash for Points boost.
