It's often said that the pace and complexity of online poker and its multi-tabling opportunities make it a young man's game, and the young guns have certainly been winning an impressive number of big-money tournaments recently. Targeting this demographic, LifeofSports this week launched its North America Online College Poker Championship in partnership with the growing Cake Poker Network.
College players in North America are being offered a weekly free roll College Championship by the partners, with the North America Online College Poker Championship open to any college or university student within North America. Participants will be competing for a grand prize that includes free college tuition for a year and a trip for two to Cancun, Mexico, worth around $20 000.
"This is the only tournament of its kind in the country," claims LifeofSports Marketing Director Chris Neville. "This is the only free play contest solely for university students and is for North American students only."
Participants will compete in weekly free roll online tournaments with the top three finishers each week moving on to the finals in May 2009. Readers can find the full detail at Life of Sports.com.
