Three big poker freeroll events are in the works for the CheckRayz Leaderboard. For starters, River Belle have become the Official Sponsor of the CheckRayz Leaderboard. Big shout out and thank you to River Belle Poker! What this means to you, the readers and CheckRayz members is that we're throwin' a huge party in the poker room onboard the River Belle! Actually, make that three parties. Yea, you read correctly, there is going to be three CheckRayz Leaderboard events in the month of April to crown our first quarter CheckRayz Leaderboard Poker Tour champion. The details of the three events are as follows:

Event 1 - CheckRayz Leaderboard Rewards at River BelleThis first event is a "by invitation only" $200 freeroll, hosted by CheckRayz at the Poker Room onboard the River Belle. Everyone who has obtained Leaderboard Points in the first quarter will be invited to this event via an email from me (pay special attention to the "how to RSVP" section which will be contained in this email). This Leaderboard Tournament is designed to reward everyone who had a top nine finish at any of the CheckRayz endorsed poker tourneys we've held during the first quarter. The winner will will earn his or her way into event number three (see below).

Event Number 2 - CheckRayz Leaderboard Shootout at River Belle Poker to crown the official first quarter champion.Once again, "by invitation only" this time, however, only the top ten in CheckRayz Leaderboard points are eligable (as of March 31st, 2006). This event will also be a $200 freeroll, courtesy of our official leaderboard sponsor, River Belle Poker. Make no mistakes... while this is a small field (ten peeps) this shootout championship poker tourney stands to be the toughest event to date on the CheckRayz tour. The winner of the CheckRayz Leaderboard Shootout Championship will be crowned the official CheckRayz Poker Tour Champion for the first Quarter of 2006, and will also win his or her way into event three (see below). Additionally, he or she will be guaranteed a spot in similar events one and three for the remaining three quarters of 2006! Oh, I nearly forgot, the winner of this top ten event, in addition to the above, will also find an extra $50 of the Beer Guy's hard earned cash transferred to them, paying homage to the newly crowned champion.

Event number three - $100 winner takes all CheckRayz Leaderboard ChallengeBoth the winner of the CheckRayz Leaderboard Rewards (event 1), and the newly crowned CheckRayz Leaderboard Poker Tour Champion, as crowned in event number 2 will receive an automatic invitation to this $100 winner takes all CheckRayz Leaderboard Challenge. It comes as no surprise that this event is also a freeroll and is being held once again (say it with me folks) at the poker room onboard the River Belle. I'm allowing for two ways to qualify for this event... For qualification details, see the post at the Poker Pub


Event 1 - CheckRayz Leaderboard Rewards: $200 freeroll, qualify by scoring Leaderboard points at one of the CheckRayz tourneys held during the first quarter of 2006.

Event 2 - CheckRayz Leaderboard Shootout: $200 freeroll ($50 added goes to the winner via the Beer Guy) to crown the first quarter CheckRayz leaderboard champion, qualify by finishing in the top ten for leaderboard points at the end of the first quarter (March 31, 2006).

Event 3 - CheckRayz Leaderboard Challenge: $100 winner takes all tourney (pokertracker bought and paid for by the Beer Guy). *terms and conditions apply.
