FullContactPoker.com, Negreanu Launch WSOP Promo
What does it take to win big at the World Series of Poker (WSOP)? A lucky bluff? Great cards? What if it was just ... wearing the right clothes? Fresh off Daniel Negreanu's second place $325,000 cash at the 2006 WSOP Tournament of Champions, FullContactPoker.com (FCP) announced today the "WEAR THE NAME, SHARE THE FAME" promotion, set to run throughout the 2006 WSOP. The promotion offers FCP members who play in WSOP events the chance to share in potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars, just for wearing FCP apparel. FCP has announced that they will generously match five percent of Negreanu's gross winnings and award it to eligible FCP community members. With over 30 events remaining at this year's WSOP, today's cash already guarantees $16,250 to FCP promotional participants. Negreanu, a three-time WSOP gold bracelet winner, will play almost everyday throughout the six-week WSOP as he tries his hand at sweeping tournaments and winning the 2006 Main Event's $10 million prize. At the end of the tournament, the five percent from FCP will be split into two prize pools, divided equally. One prize pool will be shared amongst online members that wear FCP branded apparel exclusively during any of the WSOP events they play. The second prize pool will be given to any FCP- apparel-wearing community member that makes it to a televised WSOP final table.
"The 'Wear The Name, Share The Fame' promotion is FullContactPoker.com and Daniel's way of showing support for the FCP community. We're thrilled that Daniel's gotten off to such a great start at this year's WSOP and that eligible FCP members have the chance to share in his success just by wearing FCP apparel," said Henry Chu, President of Big Stack Enterprises. "Keep up the great play Daniel and best of luck to the FCP community at this year's World Series."
