SAN JOSE, Costa Rica – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Absolute Poker, the fourth largest online poker website in the world, recently announced the six finalists of its 'Win Your Tuition' Spring tournament. The six college students, who beat out thousands of others, will now advance to compete in a live tournament to be held in the VIP room of Crobar, one of New York City's hippest dance clubs on August 8, 2006. mtvU will be onsite filming and Absolute Poker will be hosting a free party for college-goers at the club.

"We want to congratulate our six finalists on making it this far," said Mike Edwards, Absolute Poker marketing manager. "These players beat out thousands of other players in the Spring tournament which was one of our most successful college tourneys to date. The final event at Crobar is going to be one of the hottest parties this summer and with mtvU filming on-site, its going to make it extra cool -- we hope that the college crowd can join us for the free celebration."

The six 'Win Your Tuition' finalists include David Wood from Purdue University, Fort Wayne, IN; Jim Pappas from Bradley University, Mount Prospect, IL; Kyle Garis from the University of Delaware, Lansdale, PA; Justin Rausch from Penn State University, Scottdale, PA; David Wilke from Southeast Missouri State University, Saint Louis, MO; and Jamie Webster from Georgia College and State University, Marietta, GA.

Absolute Poker has an extensive program of college tournaments and event-sponsorships around the world which has resulted from the passion its founders, who met in college, share for poker. In addition to the twice-yearly "Win Your Tuition" tournament, Absolute Poker also runs a college internship program where students can apply for internship positions at the company's headquarters in Costa Rica. Additionally, the company has a campus representative program where students can organize student tournaments and Absolute Poker will provide event-marketing materials and donate money to college teams and clubs.
