Absolute Poker and UltimateBet rake away in March

3 March 2009

MIAMI, Florida -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- The CEREUS Poker Network continues to uphold its highly publicized 'bigger and better' promise, with UltimateBet and Absolute Poker today announcing a $220,000 Rake Race set to get underway on March 1st.

To qualify for UltimateBet's Points Race promo and Absolute Poker's Race Cards contest, online poker players must earn RAI$E Status Points at UltimateBet or FAME Status Points at Absolute Poker by playing in any real-money raked poker game between March 1st and 31st.

Every Friday in March, players will be informed of their ranking and potential prize, just so they know where they stand, and how close they are to finishing in the money come the end of the month. Rake Race players will also be able to check the leaderboard personally to see what prize they're playing for at any given time.

At the end of the qualifying period, the player who achieves the most status points through any of our poker real-money games, including ring games, Sit-and-Go's, and Multi-Table Tournaments, will emerge as the March Rake Race winner. The top 200 Status Point earners on each site's leaderboard will share in a $200,000 prize pool that includes $15,000 for the first place finisher, $14,000 for the second place finisher, and $13,000 for the player who ranks third. Players in the top 30 are guaranteed to win $1,000 and that number grows based on leaderboard rank.

An invitation to a freeroll for an additional $20,000 will be extended to the top 1,000 Status Point earners on each leaderboard.

Absolute Poker and UltimateBet transitioned to the CEREUS Poker Network in December 2008, instantly delivering the added benefits that come with an expanded player base to players at both sites. Thanks to CEREUS, UltimateBet's Points Race contest and Absolute Poker's Race Cards promotion means players across the Network will continue to reap the rich rewards of bigger promotions and better money prizes up for grabs.
