The Affiliate Series of Poker tournament that has now become a traditional part of Casino Affiliate Program conferences attracted 64 entrants this year, and was held in London. The event seated 64 players, whittled down from the almost 500 affiliate marketers who tried to qualify.
The 2009 ASOP – a Texas Hold ‘Em freeze-out competition – was sponsored by the Affiliate Club and Everest Affiliates programs, and was won by André Boeck, an affiliate marketing professional who owns the Poker-freak.eu website and walked away with the tournament’s $6 000 prize and the ASOP white, gold, and diamond bracelet. The event attracted a large number of spectators who were attending the conference.
Boeck, who has played in previous ASOP tourneys, most recently in Cyprus and Barcelona, said: "The ASOP tournament is a welcome relief after all the [conference] appointments. The last three times, my tournament results got better and better, and this time I finally managed to win the tournament! I hope that tournament series continues for a long time.”
“Our warmest congratulations are extended to André, who played like a champ,” commented Lou Fabiano, CAP’s founder and president. “Year in and year out, the ASOP continues to be among the most exciting parts of CAP events, and this was no exception. Thanks to everyone who played, and those who didn’t qualify — better luck next time!"
The next ASOP tournament will he held in March at the CAP Spring Break event in Cancun, Mexico.
