Absolute Poker awards Dream Package

7 August 2007

MIAMI, Florida -- (PRESS RELEASE) - They say it takes blood, sweat and tears to make your dreams come true. But for one online poker player last Sunday night, all it took was a computer and an internet connection.

A Texas Hold'em player who goes by the name CUTIEPI314 on Absolute Poker placed first in August 5th's Dream Package online poker tournament, securing a prize package that grants him access to over $100 million in Texas Hold'em prize pool money.

This is the fourth time we've awarded a prize package of this magnitude and we're just getting started "This is the fourth time we've awarded a prize package of this magnitude and we're just getting started," stated David Clainer, senior vice president for Absolute Poker.

The Absolute Dream Package includes seats in the richest poker tournaments including a WPT event and next year's World Series of Poker; an $8,500 Aruba prize package featuring a $5,500 buy-in to the 2007 Aruba Poker Classic this September and $3,000 for travel and accommodations; a buy-in to the world's biggest televised Texas Hold'em cash game; a season's pass to Sunday's $150,000 guaranteed tourney; and training with the world's best pros at WPT Bootcamp.

CUTIEPI314 won't be living out his dreams alone. He'll be joined on the poker circuit by GENTLEMAN8, THEBOMBBABY and BACKUPBOON - the first three Absolute Dream Package winners.

Plans to turn another poker player's dreams into reality are already in the works. Qualifiers for the 5th Absolute Dream Package are slated to begin soon and details on the revamped package will be announced this week.
