Luckbox Last Longer Challenge III (and more!)

by Luckbox

Every year, this gets better and better. Start lining up your teammates now. You won't believe what we have in store for you this year!

And if you thought the L-cubed was fun, that's not all we've got going this year!

Let's start with the breaking news:

PokerStars will be adding $3000 to the Luckbox Last Longer Challenge III prize pool.

Let me say that again.

The awesome folks at PokerStars are once again showing their support for the WPBT by adding $3000 to the prize pool for the Luckbox Last Longer Challenge at the Winter Classic (and find it on Facebook).

Now let's get to the details. With this much money now at stake, we're putting down some rules. Read carefully!

We want to make sure that the great people at PokerStars know how much we appreciate this so when you talk about the Luckbox Last Longer Challenge III (we're going to call it the L-cubed-cubed), please give PokerStars some love (your blog, twitter, facebook, etc.).

If you have any questions about this, leave them in the comments or email me at the email address listed above!

What's that you say? There's more?!?!?!?!?

Yes, there's more.

For the Winter Classic 2010, PokerStars is putting up a $1000 prize pool for what we're calling the PokerStars WPBT O.G. Headhunter. $100 bounties will be placed on the heads of ten people in the tournament who were at the very first WPBT Winter Gathering in 2004. The names of the bounty players will be announced before the tourney begins.

Each bounty player will have a trinket that you will be responsible for recovering when you knock them out and it is your responsibility to bring your trinket to me to get credit. Once again, prize money for the OGH will be deposited into your PokerStars account.

What's that you ask again? There's even more?!?!?!?

Why, now that you've asked, there is!

Some of you out there might think the concept of the Hammer is a little played out. I mean, it used to be cool before it went all mainstream and pros like Phil Hellmuth and Antonio Esfandiari started dropping it on national TV (without giving any credit it to Grubby!), but I digress. It's ours and we're bringing it back!

The wonderful folks at PokerStars are putting up $500 for the Hammer Challenge. The first ten hammers shown for the win post-flop will receive $50 apiece. Again, those hammers must be shown post-flop. When you accomplish this feat, you'll need to stand up and yell, "Hammer" for confirmation from the floor and so I can record the feat. And, again, prize money for the HC will be deposited into your PokerStars account.

That's a total of $4500 in added prize money for the 2010 Winter Classic courtesy of our friends at PokerStars. Give them some love when you get a chance! And if you have any questions, let me know!

Let's get those teams going now!
