Canadian Wins WSOP Freeroll Tournament

10 March 2006

NEW YORK – (PRESS RELEASE) -– Todd Sinclair, a self-described amateur poker player who spends between 20 and 40 hours competing online every week, beat 200 players to take first place and its $12,500 WSOP prize package in an exclusive WSOP freeroll tournament hosted on Sunday, March 5, by the world's largest online poker resource, PokerListings.com, and Pacific Poker, one of the top five Internet poker rooms.

A resident of Kelowna, British Columbia, Todd was one of 1,000 players to qualify for this lucrative event but ultimately defeated his opponents to claim the $10,000 WSOP Main Event seat and $2,500 in additional money for travel and accommodation expenses.

"I am very excited to be playing in the WSOP this year," said Todd. "It has been my goal to make it there since I began playing. I'm sure the experience will be quite overwhelming and I will just try to have some fun."

When asked what he would do if he won the estimated $10 million first place prize, he replied, "I have no idea what I would do with $10 million. One thing is for sure, I would never work another day in Ft. McMurray! I guess I would buy a new house, travel, and play more poker."

Todd was referred to PokerListings.com by a fellow poker player, and says he visits the Internet poker guide a number of times per week.

"PokerListings.com is a great site. I like the reviews and the special sign-up bonuses, and the Question of the Day feature is really cool too," said Todd. "I also have a habit of using the Odds Calculator after a bad beat to see just how bad it really was!" he further revealed.

Todd had similar high praise for Pacific Poker, which he credits with having some very juicy ring games.

"I would like to thank PokerListings.com and Pacific Poker for this excellent, once in a lifetime opportunity," he concluded.

"We are delighted Todd took this opportunity to showcase his poker talent and collect a seat at the WSOP," said Staffan Rydin, editor in chief of PokerListings.com. "We wish him the best of the luck at the Rio Hotel & Casino in August and are thrilled to have been able to help him fulfill his goal of competing for poker's top prize."

"This $15,000 Freeroll event was one of many top value bonus deals hosted by PokerListings.com," continued Rydin. "Like all of our exclusive offers, it was characterized by a small playing field despite the fact more than 1,000 players qualified!"
